HP Mini 1000 Series – HP 1030nr

with 7 comments

just picked up a HP 1030NR on a lark at best buy. super tiny, but powerful enough to run most of what i need. the thing makes my 12″ dell m1210 look like a monster.


  • intel atom 1.6ghz
  • 1gb ddr2
  • 16 gig solid state drive
  • wireless / webcam

keyboard is fairly small, still getting used to it, but it’s large enough to type a document on (read: much better than the tiny asus eeepc keyboard).

1030 vs 1210. 1030 wins, out of pure, unadulterated cuteness.

the 1210 has never felt so beastly.

Thus far, i’m extremely happy with it. Used it on the 4 hour plane ride home, got almost a full flight out of it. I couldn’t help but laugh as the guy next to me was forced to hold his 15″ laptop at a 45 degree angle to keep the woman in front from smashing it with her seat. Tiny == good.

Got home, loaded up Ableton Live 7 on it, and have been messing around ever since. Fan runs constantly, but i have a feeling it wasn’t exactly designed for music production :).
