Compaq Mini Netbook – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
This LTE-enabled netbook is available exclusively from Verizon for $150 wih a two-year contract. Take a look at the Toshiba N550 or something with at the very least a hyper-threaded single-core CPU. For $319 you should take a long, hard look at the new Asus Eee PC 1025CE, with its state-of-the-art 1.86GHz Cedar Trail processor, USB-3 port and 10 hours’ battery time.

40% Compaq Mini Netbook with Verizon 4G LTE Review: A Good Deal?
Source: English
The Compaq Mini is like other netbooks we've reviewed: a suitable travel companion but not serious enough to be used as a primary machine. The low resolution screen hampers usability and the overall performance is horrific; it struggles even with basic tasks such as Microsoft Office. There are some positive aspects: the anti-glare screen coating, great keyboard and touchpad, and nearly seven hours of battery. The real reason to get this netbook though is the built-in Verizon 4G LTE network, which is blazing fast. That's one aspect of this machine I can't fault.

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).

N455: Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated DDR3 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.

1.4 kg:

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

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. 

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.


In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).

40%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
