HP Mini 5101 netbook

Price: $769 (save $330)

This is without a doubt our favourite 10in netbook on the Australian market. It's solidly constructed, it has isolated keys similar to the HP ProBook line-up, and its configuration is a cut above the average: you get an Intel Atom N280 CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 320GB, 7200rpm hard drive. Sure it runs Windows Vista, but you can always upgrade to Windows 7; and because it's Vista, you can download Windows 7 and install it over the top, rather than go through a USB key installation like you would if it was Windows XP. You can buy the HP Mini 5101 netbook from Landmark Computers for $769, which is a saving of $330 off the recommended retail price.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
