>> Hi. I'm Dan Ackerman, and we are here taking a look at the HP Mini 5101. That's the latest netbook from HP's business line. And when we heard HP was kind of remaking their business netbooks, we were a little concerned because the predecessor to this system, the Mini 2140, is probably one of our favorite netbooks of all time. Now, this new version, stylistically, actually pretty different, it's black instead of kind of a bronze-ish metal tone, and the keyboard, they made the keys a little bit smaller and with some more space in between them. It's actually still very comfortable and easy to use. The touchpad is now more of a traditional touchpad instead of the longer version with the buttons on either side that the older version had. We actually like this a lot better, a lot easier to use. One thing that remains the same is the solid, metal construction. This is one of the sturdiest, most durable feeling netbooks that we've ever checked out, and that's great, especially if you're a business traveler. Our system has a, you know, pretty standard 10-ince, 10 by 6 display, but there's also an option for a higher resolution 1366 by 768 display. And I think you're gonna see that on a lot more netbooks going forward. Now, one thing that this system is lacking that the predecessor's system had is a full express card slot. HP took it out of this one. It's not something that a lot of people would use, but that's kind of one of the problems we have with the new 5101. If you're gonna charge kind of a premium netbook price, which is what they're charging for this, even though it has standard netbook components, you expect them to add features, not take them away. I'm Dan Ackerman, and that's the HP Mini 5101. ^M00:01:35 [ Music ]
Dan Ackerman takes a look at the HP Mini 2140 at CES 2009.
HP's Mini 311 adds a larger, high-definition display and advanced graphics to a basic Netbook, while keeping the price very appealing. Once it starts shipping with Windows 7, this could become our favorite Netbook.
Dell's popular Mini 10 is the most customizable Netbook we've seen. Adding extras such as a higher-resolution screen makes it more useful, but also blurs the price line between Netbooks and mainstream laptops.
One of our favorite Netbook lines gets an update with HP's new Mini 110.
The new generation of similarly sized Netbooks do more and cost less than the Samsung Q1 Ultra Premium, putting another nail in the UMPC coffin.
At CES 2010, Dan Ackerman takes a First Look at the HP Mini 5102 netbook.
The feature-packed Nintendo DS is a worthy successor to the Game Boy Advance.
For only $20 more than its single-core cousin, the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM's dual-core Atom CPU handles multitasking better, but this Netbook doesn't offer the features or performance we've seen in higher-priced "premium" alternatives.
For a Netbook with standard components for the category, but a rock-bottom price and decent overall design, it's hard to beat Dell's Mini 10v.
Dell's latest take on the Mini is a dual-core AMD-powered 11-inch system that leaves Netbooks in the dust both in power and price.
