HP Mini 1000 Mi Edition
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Mar 18, 2009

THE GOOD: Still has our favorite Netbook keyboard; sleek Mi interface makes for an intuitive and easy user experience. THE BAD: Linux-based custom interface will appeal to a limited audience; wont work with most of your existing software. THE BOTTOM LINE: HP has added a Linux-based OS to its popular Mini 1000 Netbooks Mi edition, dressed up with a glossy, sexy front-end, but many users will still want the flexibility and familiarity of Windows.

I love it. It's great for school. I attend phoenix online university and it comes in handy when i'm on the go or sitting somwhere waiting. I can just pull out my mini and finish homework assignments. I have the sleeve that works perfect when I put it in messenger bag.

Okay....
3 Star Review   By working on HP - May 28, 2009   

I have to say that I got the lenux based system not knowing how well HP had done, and for someone who just plays on the internet with no real direction or time problems this is fine. But I got this so I could work on the go because most of my work is web based. Almost none of the programs I need for work will run on this system, and while the layout is great it does take a lot of time to load pages/programs. I have had this computer for 7 hours and will be returning it. They have a great idea going, but it just didn't work out.

Great hardware, lousy Linux implementation
3 Star Review   By SusanBrownmillerFan on HP - May 20, 2009   

I want to support OEMs supporting Linux, which is why I opted to buy this model. I knew the MIE was based on Ubuntu, and I was excited, because I am a Ubuntu user and have been for years. I also love the relatively large keyboard and screen on this netbook. The netbook's physicality is beautiful. Can't say I'm a fan of the touchpad buttons being on the side, especially when the touchpad is so sensitive (even with adjusted settings), but everything looks great. And the MIE interface also looks great. Unfortunately, performance-wise, it's terrible. Alt-Tab isn't properly implemented, application switching is delayed, and there is a general sluggishness when more than two applications are open (especially anything involving software package management). And I'm using the model with 1 GB of RAM (not 512 MB) on an SSD drive. I hope HP will consider using a more stock Ubuntu in the future. I know Linux can be better than this, because I am a seasoned Linux user. If this were my first experience with Linux, I don't think I'd ever try it again.

Crippled OS
4 Star Review   By canuck on HP - Apr 14, 2009   

Good price, good specs, however, the OS is effectively disabled. Having Linux w/o a shell is like having Windows w/o a desktop. This is similar to having a Blackberry cellphone w/o email.

O.K. Product
3 Star Review   By Mike6118 on HP - Mar 29, 2009   

I like this laptop with the 16 gigabyte SDD. The only problem is that there is not enough space to install XP Professional. Get a 60 gigabyte HDD. Also, you can not install anything but the apps that came available on linux. They are keeping the computer from crashing. I think this dumb.

Excelent product
5 Star Review   By MC707 on HP - Mar 25, 2009   

This is the best Mini product. It is the only one with Linux pre-installed, as well as the only one with 2GB RAM capability. It is astoundingly lightweight and the moment I felt I needed a more custom OS, I simply downloaded Ubuntu and installed it in a swift. The only thing I feel is missing is the fingerprint reader (which apparently all Mini products lack). I recommend this product for y'all!

Good Features, Better Performance
5 Star Review   By SLG1986 on HP - Feb 15, 2009   

This computer excels compared to other Mini PCs. the Linux based Operating Software is tailored to mini-pc and reminds me of the early intuition of Tabworks, early PC OS 2GB RAM upgrade is great with running lots of programs. Wireless G and Blutooth excel in internet and wireless connect Only drawback is that OS features are not as controllable as Windows, as are available in power machines.

Things t Know
3 Star Review   By NotQuiteHP on HP - Feb 3, 2009   

Great little machine for quick online BUT.... ISSUE 1: Screen does not tilt enough for optimal viewing ISSUE2: Fan can be too loud even under low use ISSUE3: Power cord connection is weak and tends to disconnect (ie no battery charging) and the connection is angled so it gets in the way. Otherwise, I can not wait for the new and improved version.

Great interface, weak screen options.
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on HP - Feb 3, 2009   

HP has a real winner here (mostly). The design is great, and the keyboard is the best in class. I already owned a high-end netbook, but could not type on the awkward keyboard. With very little adjustment time, you can touch type on the HP Mini keyboard comfortably. They also did a great job with their Linux-based interface. It is slick and full-featured. A very solid package and upgradeable to the latest versions of any program you could possibly need. Other pluses include amazing sound for such a small device and good performance. On the downside: HP insists on their much discussed piano finish that can look downright unhygienic in the way it shows every finger and palm print. The webcam only works in very bright lighting, and they have some odd connectors (shared mic/speaker, proprietary video out, proprietary expansion drive bay). I could live with all that, but not the screen. 8.9 is just too small to work with comfortably. 10.1 would have been just right. But what were they thinking with the nonstandard 1024x574 resolution? That's less than the small screen, and not used by any device I have ever seen before. I didn't want to sacrifice resolution, so I grudgingly opted for the 8.9 model. Then several of my local stores turned up with HP Minis that had 10.2" 1024x600 screens. So why is the manufacturer of the device offering an impoverished screen to us directly, and a better screen through the retail stores? I don't want a Windows interface and hard drive. I want a fast and light Linux system on SSD. I had to pay more to buy the retail version with the 10.2" screen, then load the Linux interface on it myself and return the HP direct unit. That was a lot of unnecessary work that most people will not do. And it does not give credit to the people at HP who worked hard at successfully designing the new interface. I paid extra for a Windows license I don't need. The whole scenario is hard to explain, since all they had to do was offer the same screens online that they install in the retail models.

MIE os very good but not ready yet
4 Star Review   By eDesigner on HP - Jan 27, 2009   

I bought this laptop to study and i choose on purpose an MIE version because it was a Linux based system (stability and virus protection) with a great interface. I have been using this laptop now for two weeks and i can give you some conclusion: The concept is great but unfortunately the actual MIE operating system is not enough improved. The machine is not as reactive than a windows version but nearly... There are still some drivers issues like Youtube videos that have some frame rates problem when video played in full screen, although i know that a windows version would play it with now problem (so it’s not a hardware problem). To give you an idea of the “feeling of the machine“ it look’s like you are running a windows installed system (in a good computer, and with another interface appearance) but with no video drivers installed. Also there are still some major bugs such as the home screen that is unable to show you the new incoming mail (left side of the home screen) when programmed with an email account that contains many email (in this case 2,500 email, although thunderbird worked perfectly). I did a test with an other email account (25 emails)and it worked perfectly. This example is to show the kind of small bugs that can really be annoying. The good news is that HP is working on it’s operating system and since the lunching of the product there has been already 3 updates (in two weeks) and there has been significant improvements. I hope that HP will continue working on it’s new operating system. In general the global experience of the machine is fantastic, i love the concept, (it’s not only friendly user but also a performant work tool), the machine comes with good pre-installed softwares. and the global appearance is this time not only nice from the outside but also from the inside. (people would say wow what’s is that interface). I would recomend it to people and install a windows version waiting that the operating system get's more performant. (sorry for my strange english, my mother language is french)

Great netbook, but get windows version
4 Star Review   By Fredericker on HP - Jan 26, 2009   

Great pc, use it for everything, but I went ahead and stuck an old copy of XP on it. Worth the extra fifteen bucks. Its not a speed demon, but that's what you expect from a little PC.

My mini hp
4 Star Review   By bookvirtuoso on HP - Jan 24, 2009   

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful: My mini hp, January 7, 2009 The hp mini 1000 is Hewlett Packard 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor-based machine intended as a net-book. The user can select several different configurations for this net-book. The unit I bought has a 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM that I have upgraded to 2 GB and a 60GB HDD. This laptop is one of the most slim line and lightest net books available. Its weight is about 2.25 pounds with thickness of just one inch. Actually I was thinking of buying the Asus Eee PC S101. However, as a veteran loyal customer to hp and a proud owner of hp 15C and quite recently hp 35s calculators, I found this net-book to be quite sufficient for class room activities and presentations, internet access and simple word processing. To keep the price and weight down; hp has provided the machine with a captivating plastic casing. The ultra-thin design of the hp has led to a few other design tradeoffs. The hp Mini 1000 comes with a solid state disk or a hard drive. In order to fit the small size of the machine, hp used a 1.8 inch, 60GB with a 4200 RPM hard disk. The hp Mini 1000 has two USB ports with no VGA adapter and a single mic and headphone combo jack. For the intended type of applications, the booting time and the overall performance of the machine, I found quite acceptable.
