A couple of days ago I rec'd a new computer to make travel easier.
Originally I wanted an iPad but the iPad 3 is not far from release so I decided to go with a mini PC. HP Pavilion dm1 (not a netbook), Windows 7, HDMI, Bluetooth, WiFi, external BluRay DVD, 11.6" display, 3.5 lbs, 8 true hours of battery life.
So far so good. Been setting it up and testing it at home. Soon I will be off to a coffee shop to test commercial wifi conditions where the mini will be used. I came with IE8 and W7 without updates. At first it was good then I added ALL the updates and IE8 really slowed down. Google Maps was very slow and I questioned this purchase. This morning I updated to IE9 and the commputer really perked up especially graphics. Google Maps is working very well. Browsing is fast. Without the IE9 upgrade I would have sent it back to HP.
Biggest problem is getting iTunes to work with my iPhone apps, music, podcasts, etc. But that is not a problem of this computer.
My other travel computer is a HP Pavilion dv-6, 16" display. I like it though it is too heavy and too large for my luggage and storage space. This computer is now my home computer.
