The HP Mini 1000… as Circuit City closes

We just settled on a netbook for Tina.  The HP Mini 1000:

It may be my last purchase from Circuit City. They had the 1000 for 10% off, so we bit.  It’s been quite nice so far.  The screen is a little small, but you have to expect that from such a small computer.  But it’s just so portable…

It comes with Windows XP and it has a built-in webcam.  It doesn’t have a DVD or CD drive, but I could share one from an existing computer if I had to.  Or I could get an external drive.  It has 2 USB ports, an SD card slot, and Bluetooth and 802.11b/g built in.

I like it.  I think it’s a cool little computer.  Not the most powerful one on the block, but it doesn’t have to be.  It’s mainly used for checking e-mail, MySpace, Facebook, and occasionally playing music.  And it does those jobs just fine.
