Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I keep promising myself that I wont do this again. It’s actually getting a little embarrassing, really. I can tell that my friends think I have a problem, but are too polite to mention it. This time I managed to go entire *months*, but I’ve succumbed again, and bought another netbook.
The Mini 1001 from Hewlett Packard is easily the most attractive netbook available in New Zealand stores to date. At only 1″ thick with an attractively understated swirl design on the lid, the Mini looks like a far more expensive machine. The notebook’s palm rest and keyboard are a matte black plastic that feels good to type on and avoids becoming greasy with fingerprints. The 92% of full-size keyboard is easily the best keyboard available on a netbook at the moment, with the possible exception of the Vaio P. The layout is standard, and the keys are large and have excellent feedback.
