HP mini 1150nr Review

With the onslaught of Mini notebook computers, and being an owner of a Mini notebook. I decided to take a look at the new HP Mini 1150nr Mobile Broadband Edition. I currently use an Acer Aspire One 160 gb netbook, only problem is I have to hack a way at it to be able to use 3G. Since the new HP mini 1150nr is through ATT, and I am an ATT customer. I set out to see if this new netbook meets my needs.

Processor: 1.60ghz Atom Intel Processor w/ 512kb L2 Cache
Memory: 1024 MB DDR2
Max Memory: 1024 MB
Video Graphics: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950
Video Memory: Up to 128MB
Network Card: Intergrated 10/100 Ethernet
Wireless: 802.11 B/G
Sound: HD Audio
Keyboard: 82 Key (92% the size of a regular laptop keyboard)
Touch pad: Touch pad mouse with Vertical and Horizontal scroll
External Ports:
  • 2-in-1 integrated Digital Media Reader for Secure Digital cards & Multimedia cards
  • 2 Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0
  • 1 Headphone out/Microphone-in combo jack (iphone compatible)
  • 1 RJ -45 (LAN)
  • 1 notebook expansion port
Dimensions: 10.3 in (L) x 6.56 in (D) x 0.99 in (H)
Weight: 2.45 lbs
Power: 3 cell lithium-Ion Battery
OS: Windows XP pre-installed

One of the coolest features I noticed while playing with one of these at my local big box electronics store was the keyboard. Don't get me wrong I love my Acer but with 97% the size of a full size laptop keyboard, I don't think you can go wrong. There are a few features that are lacking in my opinion.

The restriction on 1024 MB memory is a bummer, I know I know. I am saying that you need massive amounts of RAM but 2048 MB limit would have been nice. The 80 GB Hard Drive is a bit lacking, with the Acer and many other models coming with 160 GB HD's. The only version available is pre-installed with Windows XP.

The overall design is nice, and the larger keyboard is a plus. The biggest sell for me is the fact that it is 3G capable through ATT network. Allowing me to have Internet access anywhere I go. With out having to hack away at my netbook to get 3G capability.

History behind the Oreck Vacuum

Essentially started in 1963. David Oreck had obtained the rights to an abandoned design for an upright vacuum cleaner from Whirlpool, as well as a distribution facility of RCA that was on its way down. The design he had received was for a machine that only weighed 8lbs this was a third of the weight of the average vacuum of the time. Given many years of hard work David Oreck's dream evolved to include many quality products. Learn more about David Oreck, and Oreck Corporation here.
