Ultraportable computers are currently set in two camps, with 10" netbooks and 11.6" CULV-notebooks fighting against each other. Netbooks for the longest time have offered longer battery life at the expense of system performance, while CULV-notebooks offered higher resolution screens with much greater system performance. The HP Mini 210 HD is a cross between those two groups, offering a mix of an Intel Atom processor, WXGA (720p compatible) screen resolution, HD movie playback (with decoder card) and still keeping the 10" netbook form-factor.

The PC comes with Windows 7 Home Premium preinstalled, which fits it quite nicely. The rest of the software consists of a few HP tools, a trial version of Office 2007 and Norton Internet Security. A few additional tiny applications are also there, such as the Youcam mirror, which means that the installed camera will provide you with a mirror whenever you have your netbook with you. What else? Well, we tried to figure out whom this netbook is truly intended for, and we have two replies in mind: ladies that have a desktop PC at home and desire a small, portable notebook which they can put inside their ladies’ bags and carry around to work, a café, or on a visit to somebody. It’s also ideal for girls who have no other computer and have no professional work in mind. Mini 210 will serve very well for watching films, listening to music, doing homework, using Facebook, uploading photos etc. It’s really an ideal present in both cases, and this is probably what HP has been getting at all along. This is, after all, how the price was formed - the netbook costs exactly what it’s worth.

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 standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
