  1. The Mini-Note has was almost all of these other mini-notebooks don’t. Style.

  2. I also like that it has an Expresscard slot unlikt most of these and has 1280×768 resolution screen vs 1024×600 in most other “netbooks” and also for most models that have a hard drive, shock protection.

    I don’t mind paying extra for the things the HP offers but the Via C7 processor is the deal breaker. I would love to buy this with an Intel Core Solo ULV, I’m not even sure about Atom.

  3. Nate’s right: as Apple has shown, never underestimate the power of style.
