The Bottom Line: Save your money, Even for the basic better is available.
I needed a netbook for travel, I also wanted a full keyboard so I picked up the Hewlett Packard Mini 110-4250nr. For the most part it did its job at the most minimum level. It is very light, a little more than three pounds.
Recommend this product?
The HP Mini came with a Intel Atom processor, Windows 7 Starter edition, 1 gig of ram, A 10.1 inch LED screen, webcam and built in Microphone, three USB slots, a media card reader, a six cell lithium battery that suppose to get ten hours of life in it, WiFi enabled, a fourty watt AC adapter, Ethernet port and it came with a glossy dark blue cover.
Biggest Flaw in my mind has to be how insanely long it takes for the HP mini to startup or run any program. I had to buy more ram to even make it worth keeping. This cost me another sixty dollars for a local computer store to install. It could barely handle anything more difficult than Microsoft Word let alone the internet.
That said it does come with a near full size keyboard and that was a must for me, once I was able to get the programs to run it did its job well enough. The odd touchpad mouse was hit or miss at best so it made corrections or highlighting any text a bit of a hassle.
I will say that I was amazed at the 10.1 inch LED screen. I have vision problems and I could see everything perfectly. If you played with the settings you could make the screen very bright and vivid.
Now for battery life I was suppose to get ten or so hours out of the HP mini. No… at best I got 2 or 3 even in energy saver mode. If I was not near a socket then the poor netbook would no doudt be dead or dieing before I got done using it. Really disappointing.
Now it did come with Windows Starter Edition. You lose some things that are not really an issue to me but if might be an issue to someone who needed more than just something to type on while on the road. You lose the personalization abilities like changing your background wallpaper, Multi-monitor support and a few other things that won’t really effect a netbook like DVD playback.
The built in speakers was mediocre at best so 90 percent of the time it would be best to use headphones. Plus using the speakers helped kill the battery life even faster than normal so….oh well.
My recommendation is that the Hewlett Packard Mini 110-4250nr will do the bare minimum and not very well and for its going cost, you might want to find better options unless you can pick this up on a second hand market for half its normal cost. It is just not worth it.
