The HP Mini has earned the most praise for its super comfortable keyboard, which is almost the as big as a full-size laptop keyboard. The HP Mini 1000 offers a 10.2-inch wide LCD screen with a 1024×600 resolution. It’s now run by the more powerful 1.6GHz Atom CPU Intel CPU. Even with its HP Mini Mobile Drive slot, the HP Mini 1000 has a pair of USB ports, headphone/mic jack, and a Bluetooth option.

The keyboard of the HP Mini 1000 is about 92% of a full-sized laptop keyboard and that makes it one of the best in netbook class. The comfortable typing experience really stands out.

Screen and Resolution:
The HP Mini 1000 has a 10.2 inches wide-screen display with a resolution of 1024×600 pixels. The display is covered by an edge-to-edge glass, which gives an nice aesthetic look to this mini-laptop.

No problems at all, but it would be nice if the Mini 1000 had video output and more audio jacks instead of the HP Mini Mobile Drive slot. A lower base price would be nice too.
