I suddenly had the urge to watch Pirates of the Caribbean yesterday in full HD, I’m not sure why (but nevermind that) – perfect, I thought, to try it out on my newly acquired HP Mini 5101. I booted up the Mini’s trusty, musty Windows XP system and opened the movie in VLC. While the movie’s surround sound was mind blowing, it was no better than if a radio station tried to play a movie – if you know what […]

I remember that it was just last year that I was using a HP iPAQ 600 and I installed like a gazillion apps into it and modded the heck out of its user interface. I’ve been using the iPAQ Data Messenger for about 6 months now and have been doing about the same. Today, I just tried to update my ancient v0.94 Throttle Launcher to the latest v1.0 RC3 version, at first rather unsuccessfully. But after a few reboots and […]
For those trying to decide the ‘perfect screen size’ for your next notebook, look no further – here’s a nice illustration/comparison between screen sizes of four screen sizes commonly found on notebooks/netbooks.
Starting from the bottom is HP’s Elitebook 8730w Mobile Workstation, featuring a massive 17 inch DreamColor display (1920 x 1200 pixels here!). Brilliant notebook and beautiful screen but perhaps size is the reason it sits on Mark’s desk 99% of the time.
Next is my trusty silver+black HP Pavilion dv4 […]
Well, they’re official now – HP just announced their Envy 13 and Envy 15 ultra-thin, stylish notebooks. The Envy 13 looks extremely appealing and looks like a good replacement for my Pavilion dv4 notebook… in a year’s time, and if I can afford it by then.
HP Envy 13:
Intel Core 2 Duo processor
13.1 inch LED-backlit widescreen display (16:9 aspect ratio; 1366 x 768 pixels)
2 DDR3 RAM slots
Chiclet style keyboard
512 MB ATI graphics card
Intelligent switching between dedicated ATI HD 4330 and […]
Remember two weeks ago when there were whispers about the Envy series going global/outside of North America? Well, turns out there’s a HIGH possibility that might be true. The new HP Envy 13 just came out ahead of its Tuesday announcement. The new notebook features an ultra-thin profile, 13 inch screen, chiclet-style keyboard, huge trackpad (possibly multi-touch) and will most likely make it to computer stores around the world (unlike its Voodoo PC counterpart, the Envy 133). As for […]
Besides being a little busy over the past week because the site’s servers got overloaded (apparently, as my host claims) and went down for a couple of days, I’ve got some good news to share here – I just received news that a HP Mini 5101 is likely to land at my doorstep in the coming week. The Mini 5101 sounds like the ULTIMATE netbook at the moment and I’m definitely looking forward to checking it out (I’ll post pictures […]
It has the guts of the Mini 2140 but comes with a much nicer design, a chiclet style 95% keyboard and an additional USB port – it’s the new HP Mini 5101!! The Mini 5101’s design has a lot more in common with the design of the Probook series launched by HP earlier this year – a chiclet style keyboard, all black casing with turquoise/electric blue lighting for buttons, even the touchpad buttons feel the same (and the Probook series […]
