HP Mini 5102

 

The Mini 5102 is the latest in HP's line of business-optimized netbooks, featuring a ruggedized metal chassis and design elements tailored for the office road warrior. It does a great job of offering features that business users care about, but they...

Lots of options, including touchscreen display ; Good keyboard and touchpad

Expensive for a netbook ; Limited resolution

The design of the HP Mini 5102 is great for business users, but the high price doesn't buy you extra performance.

HP Mini 5102

New Intel Atom processor; excellent build quality.

Some basic options can quickly drive up the price; small touch pad.

HP's sturdy and stylish Mini 5102 is a slight upgrade to one of our favorite Netbooks, but we had hoped for a little more fresh thinking for 2010.

HP Mini 5102

 

The HP Mini 5102 is the best business netbook money can buy. That is, if you're willing to pay costly premiums for the "extras."

Metallic lid is still pretty. Fast hard drives. Blue and Red configurations. Carrying handle option. Almost 11 hours of battery life. Typing and navigating combo has few equals. Environmentally friendly.

66Wh (6-cell) battery is a costly add-on. Some degradation in speed tests. "Extras" are pricey.

HP Mini 5102 Review

 

Is “business netbook” a misnomer? Aren't business notebooks supposed to be both portable and powerful, while emitting a confident and businesslike aura? Can a netbook ever be enough for a business user? HP is one of the few companies out there betting...

Great looks and solid construction; good keyboard; 7,200rpm HDD standard; lots of optional upgrades

Fingerprint-prone; can get extremely expensive; weird function-key switching; can't compete with CULV ultrathins

The Mini 5102 has a lot of selling points, from the great keyboard to the good-looking (if fingerprint-prone) chassis. At the base model, it’s a match for any Pine Trail netbook out there, and fully decked-out, it’s considerably better. But even after...

HP Mini 5102 review – one of the best PineTrail equiped netbooks

good performance for a 10 inch netbook powered netbook (for daily online use) ; good looking, at least for my taste (plus the entire body os matte) ; ergonomic chiclet keyboard, spill resistant + nice touchpad with independent click buttons ; fast...

a lot pricier than other 10 inch netbooks

From the beginning, i have to say this is a more sober netbook from HP, from their business class. So, unlike other colored, glossy and joyful looking mini laptops on the market, the Mini 5102 offers a classy look. But boy, is it good!

Review: HP Mini 5102

 

HP goes upscale with netbooks.

Good build quality, slick design ; Full Corel office app suite ; Sharp webcam ; Quick-boot web, calendar, contact options

Still slow despite the price premium ; Counterintuitive function key shortcuts ; Poor built-in microphone

Hardware and softwareOur review unit was a base configuration. The $415 you pay for it nets 1 GB of RAM, Windows 7 Starter Edition, and a 1.66GHz Atom N450 processor. The professional focus is evident in the upgrade selections: higher end confi

Review: HP Mini 5102 netbook

 

HP's Mini 5102 is the company's current business netbook. It's a slight refresh of the Mini 5101 that we reviewed last year. In addition to the new Intel Pine Trail processor the 5102 got a number of interesting upgrade options, including a fold-out...
