Default Dell Mini 9 vs. HP Mini Mi - 01-11-2009, 04:26 AM

Anyone have any thoughts on the new HP Mini Mi. I just played with on at CES and was pretty impressed. The keyboard is fantastic.

Having owned the HP Mini 1000 I would have to say that there is much to recommend it, most notably the keyboard.

Drawbacks to note: VGA out requires a dongle, only two usb ports and they are on opposite sides... (No usb powered hdds.) Power switch is on the front and you have to hold the machine with one hand and turn it on with the other. (Just why?) Short battery life, (I got 2 hours) and generally a fragile machine.

All being said I still have the 9 and not the 1000.

If you have any questions about it I'd be happy to answer them.

Netbooks -> Mini 9 - 2gb Gskill low latency - Ubuntu 8.04
Asus Eee 701 4g - 1gb - Ubuntu 8.04.1
Desktops -> Phenom Quad @ 2.8 - 16gb - 4x Raptor X in RAID 0 - 2x 4870X2
Brisbane 1.9 @ 2.7 - 4gb - 80gb
Many others, all Linux.

i would of deff chosen the mini 9 over the 1000 but now that the hp mini 2140 is coming out this month i think ima get the 2140 :x bigger screen over 7 hours battery life 2.5" hard drives insted of 1.8 which means higher speed and more space plus it has a express 54 slot which u can make anything in it. gots alot of info.
