HP Mini 210, 110 Updated with Atom N570

Netbooks are getting more and more powerful every year. Last year, we saw netbook manufactures churning out netbooks with Atom N550 processors and this year, some of the them have started selling Atom N570 powered netbooks. HP is now offering Mini 110 and 210 with the dual-core Atom N570 processor. Apparently, these netbooks are available only in Japan, but I am sure they will be offered in US and other countries as well.

Rest of the specs have not undergone any sort of change. This means that you are still getting the same 10.1-inch WSVGA (1024 x 600 pixel) display, 250GB HDD, 1GB RAM, and Windows 7 Starter operating system. Ports include 3x USB 2.0 ports, mini D-sub, Ethernet, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 0.3 mega pixel camera and a 6-cell battery with claimed battery runtimes of around 8 hours. Specs of Mini 110 are same as 210, but comes with a smaller 3-cell battery which will give you 4-5 hours of battery life.

    Seriously? 1GB RAM and 600 lines of resolution? I had one of these pieces of junk 2 years ago and it was too painful to use. I couldn’t give it away.

    Complete FAIL

      Yep. It is about time that 1280 x 720 or 1366 x 768 pixel resolution be considered as standard resolution for 10.1-inch netbooks. Only that can save the netbooks in the ‘era of iPad’ :D

    i think Tablets and Netbooks have their own target market…each has its positives and negatives when compared to paramaters such as design,weight,size,usability,cost,processing power,storage etc…However ,given a choice between 2,would go for TABLET.

    1. Kamal DS says:

      Tablets are media consumption devices. Netbooks run Windows and allow you to be productive at all times. Also, most of the netbooks have 6h+ battery life and can be used for media consumption as well.

  3. DZR says:

    Laptops run Windows (or MacOS) too, and they boast bigger screens, faster processors and in many cases, matching battery-lives. With tablets being both cheaper, lighter and easier to use, what is the point of something in-between now?

    The netbook bubble has burst.

    1. Kamal DS says:

      I beg to differ. While tablets are lighter, they are certainly:

      a) not cheaper: most netbooks with 6-cell are under 350 dollar range
      b) not productive
      c) ‘easier’ is subjective. There is no learning curve in netbooks (since most run Windows)

    Tablets are different, but netbooks are familiar to most users and thus easier to use. The 10-inch books are usable and have longer battery lives than larger units, but cramped to use with “adult fingers.” I found 12-inch netbooks are just big enough to be comfortable and small enough to use for hours on a charge. The longer the better.
    .
    Just remember that they are meant for casual computing and productivity, not intense gaming.

    Take a look at the gigabyte T1028X. It can be a bit sluggish when youve got a lot of tabs open, but its got 6 hour battery (still, after 3 months of heavy use), a swiviling touchscreen display, 1380×768 resolution, bluetooth, camera, microphone, and optional 3g. I take it with me to school every day, and dont even bother bringing the charger.I don’t know how its only $400.

    1. Kamal DS says:

      The resolution is 1366 x 768 (not 1380). I agree – it is truly an impressive little convertible netbook.
