The screen is bright and clear.
All I needed was a machine to do word processing and surf the internet, so my expectations were pretty low.

I just picked up the HP Mini 1000 with 10-inch screen, 1GB of system RAM and 60GB hard drive today for a family member and it's a great notebook. Technically, it's a "netbook" because it uses the low voltage Intel Atom processor and uses a smaller screen. Basically, a "netbook" is just a compact, lightweight notebook that has a weak processor and generally a smaller hard drive and less RAM than a full notebook.

The benefit of the Mini 1000 is that it's extremely easy to take with you everywhere, and unlike most netbooks this computer actually has a reasonably large keyboard that makes it easy to type.

Although the Atom processor isn't as fast as other new dual-core processors found in full-size notebooks, the Atom has more than enough power for web browsing, working in Microsoft Office, listening to iTunes, or very basic photo editing (although I wouldn't suggest buying a netbook for Photoshop work).

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the built-in speakers on this netbook. You can listen to iTunes songs and movies without needing to use earbuds (unless you don't want other people to hear what you're listening to).

There are only two minor issues that I have with the Mini 1000. First, the mouse buttons are located on the sides of the touchpad rather than underneath the touchpad ... which takes time getting used to. The other is the fact that the "Infinity Display" is highly reflective which makes it hard to read the screen outdoors in bright sunlight or while you're inside your car during the day. Under normal indoor lighting the screen is gorgeous, but take it outside and you can't see what's on the screen because of the reflections on the screen. If you don't use your notebook much outside this isn't a problem.

Overall, this is a great netbook.

I've been keeping an eye on this "netbook" market for the past 6 months, watching dozens of various models hit the retail stores. I stumbled upon this little gem in a local Costco - it took about 3 minutes of messing around with Costco's floor model before it was apparent that this is currently the best netbook on the market right now. Here's why:

1. The keyboard is almost full sized, and is true to most industry-standard layouts. Several of the other netbooks have tiny right shift buttons and smaller buttons, and I honestly don't know how people can type efficiently.

2. The screen is 10.2 inches, whereas most netbooks are right around 9 inches. Note that the resolution is still the same; however, the extra inch is welcomed.

3. The touchpad is a decent size, and has a built-in vertical scroller, which comes in VERY handy while surfing the internet. One gripe is that the mouse buttons are located on the left and right sides of the touchpad, and they feel very awkward at first. However, after a day or two, I started using both hands to manage the mouse controls. I use my left finger to click the left mouse button, and the other to move around the mouse. So, the button placement actually didn't turn out to be a dealbreaker for me.

4. The form factor and exterior design of this netbook is far better than any others. The computer is less than an inch think, and has a very sleek look when closed.

Now, here are a few minor complaints:

1. Currently you can only get the computer with a 3-cell battery, which will get you anywhere between 2 and 3 hours. I highly recommend picking up an extra AC adapter ($49 on the HP site) in the event that you need a quick charge.

I had been considering buying a new Macbook to replace my ageing iBook G4, which at 3 years old is getting ready to be retired. My ventures into the electronics shops to play with the Macbook brought me into contact with netbooks... and was I amazed at their price!

Although I was an Apple convert of 5 years these tiny gems seemed to be able to do everything I wanted with a mobile computer (remember I still have a functioning iBook... and a new iMac). I wanted something that was very portable and light. I wanted to be able to surf the net, read emails and type the occasional document. And I figured I could live with Windows XP at a push, so I started my research. I read all the reviews. I flipped through every PC Mag I could find. And I tested them in-store.

The HP Mini 1000 got my attention for three things

a) The stylishly compact design and high quality build
b) The almost full size keyboard
c) The amazing screen with glowing colours

Now to be honest I must admit that it looks a lot like the black MacBook (which has been discontinued) and as a Mac user I do like design. But the keyboard is so easy to type on compared with the other ones on the market. And the case is very very stylish and professional looking (unlike some of the other netbooks out there). And the edge to edge glass covered screen makes it look even more impressive. The build is solid and it is sturdy enough to throw into a backpack.

I also appreciate the lack of extra pre-installed trial software as well so I don't have to spend hours removing it.

Oh, but I forgot to mention the price! It's about 1/3 the price of a Macbook! Not bad in these bleak times.
