R, addicted to email

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Screen display quality (1280 x 768) is very good, general build quality also appears excellent.Open office and firefox built in, along with loads of other useful applications.
Bad points:
SLED10 O/S needs a friendly linux bod to keep in check - updates will break various settings and support from HP is useless. Battery life only 1 or 2 hours. Would be more user friendly with ubuntu. Not all applications are up to date versions.

Good points:
Brilliant little machine. Fine build and has sufficient specs for all but the most onerous tasks. You'll never want to lunk around a clunky laptop again.
Bad points:
For best results, install XP before using.

Carly, 30 Something Nerdy Gal

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Beautiful designed case and keyboard. Clear screen with high resolution. Excellent features such as webcam, sd card reader pci card slot, touch pad lock button etc.
Bad points:
My Mini Note originally came with Linux Suse 10 however after struggling with live updates to get the right bits installed and the fluctuating presence of wireless networking, I gave up and installed Windows XP. This still is a great option though as buying with Linux then installing XP proves a much cheaper option that buying originally with a Windows OS. Has run like a dream since installing XP, now the only struggle is trying to locate an adequately sized neoprene case!

P, Shipley Often on the move

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Light (relatively)
Great Screen WXVGA
Stylish Design
Keyboard size is the best NoteBook I've used for typing on.
Bad points:
Speakers poor (but expected, due to their depth).
Delayed response to mouse/pad click.
Should do a 'bundle' deal which includes a 6 Cell Battery. (and maybe a carry bag also? for accesories, Power lead/charger etc)
Should also do a 'bundle' deal with 2 power cables/chargers, (i.e. work + home)
