If you are looking to buy this item, it's important to consider what the purpose of such a laptop/netbook device is. It's not the most powerful option for high end processing, but for basic computing, I really feel there's no better value for the money.


Price/performance ratio is high. Much higher than an Atom based netbook.

Easy to open and upgrade. No screws to open.

One 4GB DIMM with one open slot, supporting up to 8GB.

Smaller form factor. It feels like a 10.1 netbook in size, but nicer screen size than 10.1 netbooks. I actually had to return the 11.6 case I bought for it and buy a case for a 10.1 size. It fit!
Keys are nicely spaced and really full-size.

Runs quite cool and quiet after removing the unnecessary features of the HP software components.

Drivers are easy to locate online, unlike many, and they actually work when installed. Some manufacturers make driver location difficult, and they never work quite right, in my experience. Not the case here. I swapped for an SSD, which I'd recommend, and replaced drivers easily and every component and function works perfectly.

You only need to download 7 drivers in total to restore all hardware functions (Ethernet, Wifi, Trackpad, Catalyst, IDT audio, on screen display, and bluetooth.)

Amazon customer service is great.


This model is NOT the imprint finish, despite what the details say in the info, or at least the one I purchased in March wasn't. As such, it shows fingerprints a bit, but nothing terrible.

The Synaptics trackpad is improved with physical buttons, but still buggy as all heck. Don't expect Mac-like smooth functioning here. The two-finger scroll feature rarely works correctly.

I got a great price on this during one of Amazon's daily Lightning Deals, and this little
notebook PC offers a lot for the money. Here is the complete features list:

AMD E-450 1.65 GHz dual-core processor
Radeon HD 6320 graphics with VGA & HDMI outputs
11.6" HD LED-backlit screen
4GB DDR3 (1 DIMM, with 2nd slot open for easy upgrade)
500GB hard drive
gigabit ethernet
Broadcom 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0
Truevision HD webcam
built-in card reader (for SD & MMC)
light weight, less than 3.5 lbs
comes with 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium

The first thing I did was pull out the 500GB hard drive and replace it with a 60GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD drive:

OCZ Technology 60 GB Agility 3 SATA III Solid State Drive AGT3-25SAT3-60G

I did a fresh load of Windows 7, and after loading all the device drivers and Windows
Updates, about 20GB of drive space was used. Here are the Windows Experience values:


Here are some LIKES:

+Radeon HD 6320 graphics makes this suitable for light gaming, and HD video apps
+long battery life
+low cost battery replacement, only 69 dollars direct from HP (HP MT06 battery, 55 Watt-Hr, part# 646757-001)
+easy access to internals. The entire bottom panel slides off when the battery release latch is in the proper position
+touchpad with On/Off button.

I have only just received this netbook this week and I already love it. The processor may not be extremely powerful BUT it is still fast enough for basic browsing and document generation and editing which is what I bought it for when I go on vacation. This replaces an earlier HP Mini 210-1030nr netbook that I bought 2 years ago from Amazon and gave to my mom for her own personal use. I'm glad I got this new one because it exceeds the performance of the first by leaps and bounds. I also immediately installed an extra 4 Gigabyte RAM stick to max out the memory capacity to a total of 8 Gigabytes; I did that before even turning the netbook on to ensure there'd be no slow-down issues.

The Beats Audio is an excellent feature as it makes music and movies sound much louder than average netbooks and even some regular-sized laptops that have no audio enhancement features internally without a user having to install additional software to make the sound experience more enjoyable.

So far the battery life is acceptable. I haven't been able to get the reported up to 9.5 hours; it's been more like 5 hours which is still good. I imagine if I adjust some power-reducing settings I should be able to max battery life to 6 or 7 hours. At any rate it is still functional for my purposes because it would be rather unhealthy to sit at a computer for multiple hours non-stop.

One thing that struck me as odd was the fact that the netbook was already setup with a User Account name of "3" when I turned it on but I presume it was because it was for testing and software installation purposes.

Great processing speed, good hard drive size and TONS of ram in such a small package means one cannot go wrong with this purchase.
