HP's HP Mini 210 (NB-210-1017TU_01) netbook is stylish, comfortable to use and easy to upgrade. Although it has standard specifications, its look and feel are very different to most netbooks', and it's a much more refined product than the netbook it replaces (the HP Mini 110). We like it a lot, but wish it had 802.11n Wi-Fi, more RAM and extra features, such as a Sleep-and-Charge USB port.

HP's Mini 210 makes some significant changes from their previous generation consumer netbooks. The new patterned exterior wraps around the top and bottom and gives it a very stylish look. They have also taken they superb keyboard design from their business line and adapted it to this one. Battery life is very strong thanks to the new Atom N450 but performance hasn't improved much.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
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).
Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the system should be only minimally faster than the previous Atom N280 / GMA 950 combination.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
