First Look: HP Mini 110

1:39 /

One of our favorite Netbook lines gets an update with HP's new Mini 110.

[ Background Music ] >> I'm Dan Ackerman and we're here taking a very first look at HP's new Mini 110. That's the latest Netbook from HP and a sequel to one of our favorites, the Mini 1000. Now like the Mini 1000, this system has a large flat keyboard that we like. It's also got the same sort of narrow touchpad that we're not a huge fan of. Looking at the Mini 1000 Nexus [phonetic], we happen to have one right here, you can actually see that the newer version is thicker and a little bit heavier than the older one, WTF HP. However, it's still got a fairly standard set of Netbook components, Intel Atom CPU, 1 gig of RAM, Windows XP, 160 gig hard drive. It doesn't have the edge to edge glass of the old Mini 1000. It just has an inset screen, but we're pleased to see that it's a non-reflective screen as opposed to these super glossy ones we find on most Netbooks. One of the more notable new features on the Mini 110 is the Syncable software package that actually let's you connect this machine to other ones on your home network through a custom interface and share videos, documents, audio files. You can even sync mail accounts like Outlook and Thunderbird. Nice thing about it is that it works on Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems if you have a bunch of different systems on your home network. Our initial attempts of using it took a little getting used to and some of the screens don't seem particularly designed for like the 1024 by 600 Netbook displays, but we think once we work out the [inaudible] it would be an easy way to kind of share files back and forth. A lot of people use things like Google docs for this now. I'm Dan Ackerman and that's the HP Mini 110. [ Music ]
