They say great things come in small packages. I don’t really know who “they” are, but “they” appear to be right. At least when talking about HP’s line of Mini PC’s, the HP Mini 1000.
At less than an inch thick and weighing little more than 2 pounds, the HP Mini 1000 is perfect for mom bloggers on the go. And it’s easy to use, which is an added perk because who has time to decipher the configuration of PMP’s in the N276 sector of your control panel whilst three kids are screaming for your attention in the background? (If it isn’t obvious, my knowledge of computers ends slightly beyond the on/off switch. Ease in a PC? That’s music to my ears.)
The HP Mini 1000 is more than just cute, though. It’s also functional. It includes Genuine Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3 for getting things done and staying connected in a protected environment, an Ethernet jack, two USB ports, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless capabilities as well as a built in webcam and microphone. It also boasts a keyboard that is nearly full size at 92% of a regular keyboard.
All of these combine together to create the perfect station for storing photos, music and files while giving you access to the internet and to your family when you are on the go.
Mini PCs are geared toward information “snacking” and content enjoyment. “Staying connected to your world – however you define it – is increasingly important to people on the go,” said Ted Clark, senior vice president and general manager, Notebook Global Business Unit, Personal Systems Group, HP.
“That’s why HP is excited to address this new high-growth market with a portfolio of head-turning mini companion PCs that are fun and easy to use.”
For the busy mom on the go, it’s perfect. It can even fit in your purse or diaper bag. And have I mentioned that it’s cute?
