HP Mini 1000 with JKK and Dan

Updated on 11 November 2019 by

mini1000 The netbook with ‘the Keyboard’ is getting some press today. JKK has been unboxing a fresh one and Dan of Gear Diary has bought one. The HP MiniNote 1000 that is.

Both give positive comments about the keyboard with Dan going as far as to say that its the best keyboard, on any device, ever – "I’m not just talking about a netbook keyboard but I mean ANY keyboard." JKK likes the design – "Its looking pretty nice and thin. Good for eyes. Nice design" and then precedes to take the device fully apart to check the SSD and connectors for other components.

The small battery only returns about 2.5hr life according to other reports so while it’s a very stylish device, without the 3G capability it’s more suited to portable typing duties than anything mobile. A 3G-enabled version could be nice for mobile bloggers though so we’ll keep an eye out for it.

    Thanks for the link Chippy!

    Just to clarify- I think HP did an awesome job with the mini-note and I do love the keyboard…

    As I noted in the post, among the reasons it is working so well for me is that a reduced-sized keyboard is an advantage due to a bum wrist. The less movement the better for me. A small lousy keyboard doesn’t help but a small, really good, keyboard like this one is awesome!

    It is also why I use voice-recognition software a good deal. I’m happy to report that that too works great- and without a headset no less!
