We were recently impressed with Verizon’s latest Mobile Broadband device, the MiFi 2200, as you could connect 5 devices to it wirelessly via Wi-Fi and all of them would be connected to the Internet. Now Verizon has raised the bar with the introduction of the HP Mini 1151NR Netbook...

Good and fair review... honoestly thought I think you scored it 0.5 higher... lol. But the 1gb of RAM issue can be fixed raelly easily. There is even a youtube video of a guy changing the RAM on a similar HP mini 1000 series in less than 30 seconds. 2gb of ram will only run you an extra 30-40 bucks, but totally worth it. As far as hard drive capacity goes though, I think it is a special sized drive for the mini's so your upgrading is lmited.

Well, when you think about it, with a computer of that size, do you really need anything bigger as far as hard drives are concerned? The whole point of having a netbook is surf the web, do some word processing, listen to music and maybe watch a movie. The processors themselves are stuck at 1.6 GHz so if you upgrade the system past 2 GB of RAM you aren't really going to notice a difference in speed. This computer is not meant to be a portable version of your main desktop. That's what laptops are for, especially the 17-inch ones.

but 17" is sooooo big and weighing at least 5lbs... they aren't that fun to carry. That's why I want the OQO. (www.oqo.com)
