Reviews for the HP Mini 210-3002sa

60% HP Mini netbook review
Source: V3.co.uk English
The HP Mini is a decent netbook, but is really going to appeal only to those needing a budget machine that runs Windows. Tablets such as the iPad 2 are hugely popular with business people for tasks such as internet browsing on the move, and represent a better option if your aim is primarily for content consumption. However, while they're more portable, high-end models will set you back around twice the price. For those who need to carry out serious productivity on the move, it's worth splashing out a bit more on machines packing Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 chips.

80% HP Mini 210-3002sa review
Source: PC Advisor English
The HP Mini 210-3002sa is possibly the best netbook we've seen – solidly constructed, usable and you don't necessarily have to buy it in a garish colour. It is slightly pricier than some of the netbooks we've seen at £269 inc VAT, though it isn't the most expensive. However, low-end ultraportable laptops would be less than £100 more and have far more grunt than an Intel Atom chip can provide, so if you do need something more versatile, that might be a better option. The standout feature of the HP Mini is the sound quality – it really has to be heard to be believed – so as a portable entertainment machine, it represents good value for money.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

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).


N570: Dual core Atom processor with a slightly higher clock rate than the Atom N550 and therefore still slower than the CULV processors.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.1":

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.

1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
