    If you’ve ever used a netbook then you already know the frustrations. Small keyboards, slow hard drives and battery life that should be great but isn’t all seem to have come standard. HP, a long-standing name in the computer industry to say the least, has addressed a number of our concerns with the latest refresh of its Mini line.

    We’re taking a look today at the Mini 210. As it was sent to us, this lovely little machine will run you only $375. With a 7200 RPM, 320 GB hard drive, you should be able to get rid of a number of the speed and storage frustrations. A 6-cell battery, while bigger is usually better, manages to power the netbook for just over 6 hours (according to battery meters).

    The rest of the impressions? Have a look at the video. We’re certainly going to enjoy spending some time with this one, it seems.
