1.11 Kgs and the HP Mini 1001 is a cheap laptop dream

While I haven’t bought it yet, I’m definitely a click away from so…

Just saw the HP Mini 1001 yesterday when our “computer guy” brought one in.  The notebook is literally almost as light as a thick ringed notebook and easily tuck’able under your arm.  You can throw it in your backpack with ease and probably do a bit of work on the subway to work or pop it out almost anywhere.


I tested the keyboard as well and was able to type almost my regular 110+ words a minute with no problems.  I’m not exactly 100%, but definitely close enough.  Some say the 10.2″ display is a bit too small, but it was comfortable for the 10 or so minutes I stared into it.  The resolution is 1,024 x 600 in case you need to know.
