As Ultrabooks give us one more reason to eschew the cramped dimensions of low-powered netbooks, outfits like HP continue to churn out the little laptops that could've despite the deafening ring of that category's death knell. So, if you're a student on a crunched budget, a business-y type with low-...

Truth be told, we liked the Mini 210's not-too-glossy design when we reviewed it last year, but compared to the latest generation, it manages to look frumpy. The made-over version (starting at $299) has a shimmering paint job that's almost metallic, but since the 210 is still made of plastic, i...

Devastated that you won't be able to nab an HP Slate 500 in time for the holidays? How about a brand new HP business netbook as a consolation?

We hate to crush your dreams of a World Cup-branded netbook -- and we know that's exactly what that looks like up there -- but it's really just an example of how schools can customize HP's new 10.1-inch Mini 100e.

Even though school's just getting out in most places around the world, the bulk of companies start announcing their back to school laptops just about... now! And we'd bet you that this 10-inch Mini Classmate netbook (the final name is still TBD) is what HP has in store for the kiddies come this fal...

There are netbooks and then there's the HP Mini 5102. Or at least that's always been our impression of the 10-inch business and education targeted laptop, since it isn't every day that you see what's supposed to be a secondary system with a 7,200rpm hard drive, durable aluminum chassis, spill resis...
