HP Mini Classmate featured at Computex 2010

HP has developed a netbook geared towards the younger generations in need of a laptop. The Mini Classmate netbook, which was revealed at Computex 2010 has everything you’d want in a laptop (if you were a kid). It comes with a handle on the back, keyboard with raised keys, intel atom processor and SuSE Linux 11 operating system. While similar to the Mini 5102, most of the details about this netbook remain to be discovered, as HP has only peaked our interests with this display, leaving us wanting more information. We will keep you updated as more info comes out.

HP Promotes Breast Cancer Awareness with Netbook and Accessory Bundle

Joining Sony in efforts to promote breast cancer awareness, Hewlett-Packard has introduced its own pink netbook and accessory bundle.

The HP Pink Chic netbook and accesory bundle includes a 10.1″ netbook with 1 GB of RAM and a 160 GB hard drive, an HP Mini Pink Chic sleeve, and an HP Mini retractable pink mouse.  The netbook runs on Windows XP and weighs roughly 2.57 pounds, which is pretty decent.

You can get this entire bundle at Best Buy for $379.99 ($10 more than the price for only an HP Mini Pink Chic netbook) and HP will be donating $1 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for each Pink Chic sleeve or Pink Mouse sold between 9/20/2009 and 12/31/2009. Pick up yours today and join the fight against breast cancer!

Footage of the Verizon HP Mini Netbook in Action

PocketNow just put together a video discussing the performance of the new Verizon HP Mini netbook. They go over system speed as well as the EVDO connection, and touch on subjects including the battery life of the $199 netbook.

Their conclusions? The netbook is great, but considering battery lags and some slower connections, it could definitely be better. Check out the video below.

Netbook Weights Compared

For those always on the go, ultraportables and netbooks are a godsend. While ultraportables have full-sized keyboards, larger screens, and faster processors though, they also sport a much heftier price tag! Netbooks are generally priced at less than $500 and can perform basic everyday functions, including checking e-mail and surfing the Internet and preparing documents. The downsides to netbooks are that they have relatively smaller screens, keyboards, and processors.

Here is a comparison of the weights of some common netbooks in the market right now:



Acer Aspire 10.1”

2.9 lbs

Asus Eee PC 1000HE

3.2 lbs

Dell Inspiron Mini 10”

2.6 lbs

HP Mini 2140 (w/ 6-cell battery)

3.0 lbs

Lenovo IdeaPad S10 (w/ 6-cell battery)

2.8 lbs

MSI Wind U123 (w/ 9-cell battery)

3.2 lbs

Samsung NC10

2.8 lbs

Samsung N110

2.8 lbs

Sony Vaio P Series

1.4 lbs
