Reviews for the HP Mini 1000

70% HP Mini 1000 Mi Edition
Source: CNet English
There are a lot of Netbooks on the market that are so similar in terms of hardware and software that manufacturers have to find other ways to differentiate them--usually with aesthetics and design. Although Netbooks started out with custom Linux shells (such as the original Asus Eee PC), the vast majority now run Windows XP. HP has added a Linux-based OS to its popular Mini 1000 Netbook's Mi edition, dressed up with a glossy, sexy front-end, but many users will still want the flexibility and familiarity of Windows.

70% HP Mini 1000 Mi
Source: PC Mag English
If Ubuntu is as foreign to you as Klingon, you probably found last year's initial crop of Linux-based netbooks far less appealing than their XP counterparts, which were released later by the likes of Acer, HP, and MSI. The open-source operating system may seem intimidating for the uninitiated, but a well-designed Linux build doesn't have to be. Linux offers plenty of advantages as a netbook platform: It requires less memory, taxes your processor less, and brings the cost down, to boot. (The base price for an XP system with the same specs is $20 more.) The Mini 1000 was already a solid netbook, but the addition of HP's custom Ubuntu build to the Mi edition only sweetens the deal.

60% HP Mini 1000 Mi Series
Source: Laptop Mag English
The HP Mini 1000 Mi Series has something that its XP counterpart does not: an innovative, accessible Linux interface that lets you do all the things you’d normally do with a netbook: surf the Web, check e-mail, write documents, and access your favorite photos, music, and video. Unfortunately, it has the same shortcomings as its Windows-based sibling: short battery life and sluggish performance, thanks to a slow 4,200-rpm hard drive. This netbook is fairly expensive, too, especially compared with systems that come with longer-lasting six-cell batteries. Mainstream consumers who aren’t wedded to a particular OS should check out the $449 Samsung NC10, the 10-inch Acer Aspire One ($349), or the ASUS Eee PC 1000HE ($399), all of which offer higher-capacity six-cell batteries for less money. But this attractive, slim, and fun Linux-powered netbook has enough going for it to make it worth a look.

Overall, I think the HP Mini 1000 is not only a great portable solution, but if you can get the accessory cable from HP, this could be many people’s primary machines. Honestly, most people browse the internet and check their e-mail. That’s pretty much it. For these tasks and a bunch more, the HP Mini 1000 performed perfectly. If you’re in the market for a new portable computer and all you want to do is basic browsing and light office work (supposing you don’t need an optical drive), seriously consider the HP Mini 1000. If you already have a heavy duty desktop or laptop but want something a bit more portable for when you hit the road, the HP Mini 1000 should on or near the top of your list.

HP Mini 1000 Mi Edition User Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
There is a lot to like about the HP Mini 1110NR. Cosmetically it succeeds on a hardware and software level. It is thinner than most netbooks in its class, and it offers more attractive styling (at least in my opinion). There are no batteries jutting out of strange places like on the Toshiba NB100 and Dell Mini 12. Materials are well chosen, and the lid's finish is classy looking. At a software level HP has taken the standard fecal brown aesthetic of Ubuntu and given it a glossier, sexier sheen. The theme is sharp and HP's launcher/shell succeeds where several netbook Linux distros failed before it. This Linux OS is very easy to use and everything just works out of the box. This operating system is certifiably ordinary people friendly.

80% First Aussie review: HP Mini 1000 netbook
Source: APC Mag English
The Mini 1000 has plenty to offer the average PC buyer, and we’ve no doubt HP will move plenty – even with the eyebrow-raising $899 price tag. But more tech-savvy shoppers will be waiting for that sticker to be slashed by at least $150 before the Mini 1000 can really stand its ground against some of the better-spec’d competitors.

Review: HP Mini 1000 Netbook Earns Notebooks.com Editor’s Choice Award
Source: Notebooks.com English
The Mini 1000 I reviewed is an excellent choice and value for someone that understands the limitations of a netbook. It’s highly portable and its keyboard makes it much more useful than netbooks with smaller keys. The configuration in this review has a retail price of $464.99 and will provide the vast majority of consumers a solid portable web, email and productivity experience. Business professionals looking for an enterprise-class computer should avoid the Mini 1000, along with all current netbooks. Geeks and gadget tweakers may not like the Mini 1000 either as there’s not as the Mini 1000 doesn’t lend itself to tweaking the same way slightly larger netbooks do.

A small wonder
Source: Star Techcentral English

Mini notebooks are usually used for surfing and ­performing simple tasks, and the HP Mini is great for such purposes. The build quality is solid and it has a number cool features while still maintaining a small, lightweight form factor. It is great that it has a large 10.2in screen and a keyboard that is almost full-size and comfortable to use. Also, the fairly efficient workhorse is capable of running lightweight ­applications and is great for viewing pictures or videos. With 60GB of storage, you’d be scratching your head ­deciding what programs and applications you’d want on the Mini. However, the Mini’s isn’t great for working outdoors, and it has only two USB ports and the propriety VGA adaptor is not bundled with the notebook. Overall, the notebook is great if all you want to do with it is surf, watch movies on the go, and use it for simple tasks.

HP Mini 1000 Review

The HP Mini 1000 is a clear winner on the netbook front, offering a great design and being very user-upgrade friendly. It offers the best keyboard out of the entire netbook crowd, only matched by the earlier Mini-Note 2133 which uses the same design. We are delighted HP finally decided to refresh their netbook with the Atom platform since it increased battery life over the VIA model and greatly reduced the amount of heat thrown off the processor. With great build quality, a spring-loaded RAM slot, awesome keyboard, and super slim design it is easy to give the HP Mini 1000 our Editor’s Choice award. We feel it is well deserved even with the missing VGA port and limited battery options.

80% The HP Mini 1000 - 2nd Generation
Source: Hardware Zone English

The original HP 2133 Mini-Note PC always has a special place in our hearts as a very well-designed "business" netbook and its successor, the Mini 1000 takes it to a more consumer level with some compromises but still with the same design quality and build. Sure there are changes that aren't quite to our liking - plastic instead of aluminum, but factor in the cost and weight, the issue becomes somewhat moot.

HP Mini 1000 Review

The HP Mini 1000 delivers the Internet and basic computing tools in a very affordable price for those who need a desktop companion to take with you on the go. Priced very competitively with other netbooks on the market, the HP Mini is sure to make some waves this holiday season. Features like Bluetooth V2.1 and an integrated webcam make this device stand out among others on the market. Starting at $399 you will be getting a fully Internet capable mini computer to take with you anywhere, that is both functional and very durable.

HP Mini 1000 Review
Source: Student Buying Guide English

In the world of netbooks the Mini 1000 deserves praise for its durable build, good keyboard and nice screen. When you compare the Mini 1000 I got priced at $549 to larger notebooks you’ll of course find it’s a slower performer, has less storage space, has a restricted amount of viewing and the keyboard won’t be as easy to use as that of say a 14.1″ screen. If you know a mini notebook fits your needs and you’re just looking for a companion web device to take on the go, the Mini 1000 is worth considering, if you have $500 - $600 to spend on a laptop for school then you’ll be better served by looking at a budget priced 14.1″ or 15.4″ screen notebook.

HP may have arrived late to the consumer netbook game, but by lifting the generous keyboard from last year's business-oriented model, the Mini 1000 easily joins the category's top tier. And with such good value at just £400, this netbook is definitely worth a look.

HP Mini 1000 review

With the HP Mini 1000, HP does a good job keeping most of the things that worked on the HP Mini-Note 2133, while upping the performance and managing to cut prices in the process - well, not counting the fashionista-flavoured model. Is an HP Mini 1000 right for you? If you're limiting your outdoor use (the glare can be a pain), this is a good choice; but it's not the swiftest mini-note on the block.

Hewlett-Packard was one of the first companies to join the netbook revolution. In response to ASUS' Eee PC 4G, it quickly launched the HP 2133 Mini-Note PC, which I reviewed this past April. HP's latest netbook, the Mini 1000 ($550 direct), is modeled after the polished look of HP's Pavilion line and includes the Intel Atom platform. The Mini 1000 is a solid second act for HP that could teach other netbooks a thing or two about design. It could stand to learn a few things from its peers, as well.

The Mini 1000 offers the standout solid construction and comfort as its more expensive Mini-Note 2133 predecessor, but with dramatically better performance. We just wish the excellent higher-resolution screen from the 2133 were an option on this model. The Mini 1000 is a worthy competitor in the netbook market, offering the small size of the Lenovo IdeaPad S10 without the compromised keyboard. Spec-wise, however, it’s more of a “me-too” netbook. While we love its small form factor and excellent keyboard, those aren’t enough to offset the $80 to $120 price premium over offerings from Asus, Lenovo, and MSI, which offer nearly identical performance.

Comment

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).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» 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).


N270:

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.2": 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 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.


HP: The Hewlett-Packard Company, founded 1935, commonly referred to as HP, is a technology corporation headquartered in California, United States. HP specializes in developing and manufacturing computing, storage, and networking hardware, software and services. Major product lines include personal computing devices, enterprise servers, related storage devices, as well as a diverse range of printers and other imaging products. Other product lines, including electronic test equipment and systems, medical electronic equipment, solid state components and instrumentation for chemical analysis. HP posted US $91.7 billion in annual revenue in 2006, making it the world's largest technology vendor in terms of sales. In 2007 the revenue was $104 billion, making HP the first IT company in history to report revenues exceeding $100 billion. Market share regarding sales of personal computers in 2007 (market research IDC): HP 18.9 %, Dell 16.4 %, Acer 9.9 %, Lenovo 7.5 %, Apple 5.7 %
