Reviews for the HP Compaq Mini 110c

66% HP Mini 110

And really, that's what the Mini 110 boils down to: an econobox that delivers just enough of what you need, without spoiling you. You get all the required ports, plus a little extra beef, for a very low price. Not worried about saving maximum money on your next netbook? The HP Mini 5101 does a stand-up job, but neither it nor the Mini 110 can match the value that the Toshiba NB205-310 offers.

The Compaq Mini 110c is essentially a less expensive version of the older HP Mini netbooks with the added wireless wide area networking capabilities added in. This means that the system retains many of the same great features of the HP such as the great keyboard and anti-glare screen great for outdoor use. It also comes with some of the awkwardness as well including short battery life and side positioned trackpad buttons. Still, a great low cost option for those looking for a WWAN capable netbook.

70% HP Compaq Mini 110c - 10.1in Netbook Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
HP has taken a circuitous route in the netbook market. It started out with its business focussed HP 2133 Mini-Note PC, which while regarded as one of the best looking and best made netbooks around, was short on power and longevity. Sometime later it released the HP Compaq Mini 700 and with it eschewed the conventions laid down by other manufacturers, opting for a less is more approach and a classy look and feel. With the HP Compaq Mini 110c, HP appears to have relented to market pressure with a more conventional proposition. HP has produced a good netbook in the Compaq Mini 110c, but not a great deal more than that. While its keyboard is among the best around and it's reasonably priced, it doesn't offer anything a dozen other netbooks don't and there are alternatives that offer better battery life for similar money.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.2 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
