HP Mini 1000 Review

HP Mini

So.. you’ve been wondering about taking the Netbook plunge.  You’ve read the PC enthusiast sites, and compared to late 2007 there are now a large number of “netbook” offerings on the market.  What’s an IT guy (or geek) to do?

As any good IT consultant, I need a good laptop to see customers and move between the office.  I have a nice HP Compaq 6910p, it’s great, but it’s large and really a full desktop replacement.  I’ve found that taking it around to customer locations is a bit of a pain.  I’m one of those people who are constantly tossing laptops over my back and having them fall down my arms!  Not to mention I would hate to really use it on the plane.

Enter the netbook and my HP Mini.  Read on for more details on the little machine that could!
