LaptopMag reviews HP Mini 1000

Everytime a new netbook is released LaptopMag seems to snag a review. I don't know their secret but keep up the good work. Here Joanna Stern reviews the HP Mini 1000 that goes on sale today. Laptop gives it 4 out of 5 stars:

Currently, more than ten mini-notebooks are available with identical 1.6-GHz Intel Atom processors and Windows XP Home operating systems. But the HP Mini’s stylish and seriously compact chassis, crisp and bright screen, and outstanding keyboard elevate it above most of its competitors and shake up the cookie-cutter netbook mold. However, those looking for a longer lasting system with a larger, faster hard drive for $50 less will prefer the $499 Samsung NC10 (which comes standard with a 6-cell battery). But those lusting after a stylish 10-inch netbook will be beyond satisfied with the the HP Mini 1000.

Mobile Computer Mag has posted a two part video review of the Asus S101. The video definately makes me want the S101 more. But then the starting price of $699 drops me back to reality.

Even though Wimax isn't widely available unless you live in Baltimore. You can pickup the Nokia N810 Wimax edition now for $443. So I would hold off til your area has this service. Otherwise stick with the N810.

jRin reviews Dell Mini 9

Over at you can read a review of the Dell Mini 9 netbook. Based on the review it was not too positive. Here are his thoughts:

Would I keep it? No. I like the acer aspire one better — I like it’s keyboard, and larger 120gb storage space. Had the Dell had a normal laid out keyboard and/or a larger hard drive, I would keep it over my AAO because I like the battery life, it stays quieter, the actual keys on the keyboard are nicer, and it’s much easier to upgrade. Would I recommend someone else to get it over other netbooks? If the keyboard won’t bother you, sure — It’s cheap enough, and has better battery life than the others I’ve reviewed (and read about), but for me, it comes down to the keyboard. But with all things considered (other than the keyboard layout), it’s not much different (better/worse) than the other netbooks out there — at this point, I’d say it’s which looks better, and cheaper at the time.
