Reviews for the Hannspree Hannsnote
The SN10-E218 is a well-built netbook with very few flaws. Portability is particularly impressive, even if performance and features are limited, and the asking price is just right.

Hannspree is gaining a decent reputation for producing cheaper alternatives to more established brands in the notebook and display market without a significant compromise in quality, and for the budget-conscious buyer it's difficult not to hold them in some regard. Hannspree's new Hannsbook is an attractive budget offering in a burgeoning netbook market and, while it doesn't really bring anything new to the table, a solid, attractive design and competent performance will certainly appeal to those looking to buy a portable on a shoestring.

If the name Hannspree rings a bell, chances are you've seen it adorning either an LCD TV or a monitor, but with the HANNSnote SN10E1 the company has taken quite a plunge and entered the highly competitive - make that cut-throat - netbook market. Unfortunately for Hannspree it has launched the HANNSnote SN10E1 at the same time as the market leaders are launching the second generation of 10-inch netbooks, so it was always going to be tough to stand out from the crowd, and sadly the HANNSnote SN10E1 doesn't. Having said that, the price is good, until you realise that by stretching your budget by fifty pounds or so you can get something like Asus's EeePC 1000HE with its much longer battery life and better keyboard.

The Hannspree HannsNote SN10E1 is a me-too netbook with Intel Atom processor, 10in screen and Intel GMA 950 graphics. Oh, and a great price. There’s little on the HannsNote to recommend it over the classic MSI Wind U100 – until you check the price. While the Wind typicall sells for between £300 and £330, we’ve seen the Hannspree HannsNote SN10E1 available for £260. Considering the good core design and specification of the Wind/HannsSpree chassis, it gets our vote as the best value netbook.

Until netbooks based on nVidia's ION or AMD's platform (like Packard Bell's Dot m) arrive in retail, these miniature underpowered laptops are a bit like generic cookies: they might be cut into different shapes and have various toppings, but they're all made from the same dough. Superfluous analogies aside, today we're taking a look at Hannspree's HANNSnote, which - like the Advent 4211 and LG X110 before it - is essentially a restyled MSI Wind, including the same old specifications. Join us as we find out if this is the best Wind rebadge yet. If you can get past its faults, Hannspree's HANNSnote is excellent value for a netbook with a six-cell battery. However, depending on your needs it's definitely worth checking out the competition before buying.

Hannspree is a name better known in the world of monitors than notebook computers. In the past it has come up with some rather strange designs for its screens, too, including ones in the shape of elephants and footballs (designed for children’s bedrooms, naturally) and a memorable model that came with wood veneer panelling. The Hannspree Hannsnote SN10e1 doesn’t stand out much but offers decent value.

The US TV giant sticks its finger into the netbook pie. While the Hannspree Hannsnote is an effective and highly usable netbook, it fails to stand out from the vast competition in any clear way. On its own merits it is an impressive portable, but the noisy fan and mildly flawed usability may cause you to look elsewhere.

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.
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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
The screen diagonal is used for small tablets.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
Hannspree: Despite the German-sounding name, this company was founded 2002 in Taiwan. They focus on TV hardware and released their first laptop in 2009. The market share seems to be very low, despite they have several offices throughout the world.
74.67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
