I bought my HP Mini 110-3112sa net book because I get very bored at work and need something to pass my time, I used to take my lap top in but it is quite bulky and heavy from the long walk across town from the car park, so decided I needed a light weight net book and this one fitted the bill.
The HP mini is a great net book with a lot of features for the small price which include a card reader, Bluetooth and wireless WLAN aerial and a 250 GB hard drive which is adequate for me.
I must admit I only tend to use mine for browsing the web and writing reviews but for what I use it for I find it does the job perfectly.
For a small net book I find the keys on the key board ok but when my husband has tried to use it he has had some difficulty due to the size of his hands, although the screen is obviously not massive because of the size of the machine itself however it is very clear so is fine.
Overall I think this net book is a good little machine I don't think I would have it as my main computer because I do prefer a larger screen.

Now for the informative part, I am a big fan of netbooks and due to the sudden and untimely demise of my previous netbook, I found myself in the market for a new one, I have to admit it was the very nice discount offered that attracted me to begin with, you know how it goes look after the pennies, I ordinarally purchase Toshiba's and have always found them reliable, my only experience of hp prior to my hp purchase was my friends and familys opinions and to be honest they were not that favourable.
But as I said before the price was just too good to pass up, so I took a leap and ignored all my inner demons saying you'll regret it when Mum starts with the I TOLD YOU, will you ever listen.
I am so pleased that I didnt make a pre concieved judgement, I have found the HP mini 110-3112sa a joy to use. Its light weight, compact, neat design and interface allows for easy use. it hasn't been designed with just one target group in mind, a novice would be just as at home as an advanced user.
There are pluses for everyone from the quirky feature like the ACTION CENTER, a pre install piece of software that just sits in the back ground minding its own business, a guardian Angel if you like watching and notifying you immediatly if anything changes that could be BAD...
I also love the QUICKWEB, someone I can relate too must have got so sick of windows, they had the genius idea to bypass windows to allow you to jump straight to all the fun online stuff, no delay due to windows and all its hundreds of needed items loading. this feature is a really big PLUS for me and If i need to replace my NETBOOK in the future it is something I would look for again,
I have no issues, or even concerns with my purchase and I am now a hp convert, I would definetly purchase from them again,the machine has a decent size hard drive, with all the extra's you could need built in, like card reader, web cam, Wlan & bluetooth, It has an anti glare screen which is another bonus, in my humble opinion.
I have yet to find fault and Im the sort of gal that goes from 0 to worst nightmare when things go wrong, but as you have read and I hope have found useful I am just as quick to compliment when I am pleased with things and I would recommend this item to friends and family, I am even contemplating purchasing another for my daughter who is currently a uni student.
This netbook is a perfect size to fit in any medium to large handbag, so no need for the obvious look at me, Im carrying a note/netbook style bag, drawing attention, unless that is you want to.
ITS A THUMBS UP FOR ME
I recently bought this as I am about to go to university and needed a compact netbook that can fit in my handbag. My uncle was the person whom I bought it from as he found the keyboard too small for his fingers, I though love the keyboard and find it ideal for what I need and comfortable to type with. The screen size is great for writing essays and surfing the internet and I have had no issues with it thus far. Battery life is good, no complaints and never been caught out, probably isn't the best on the market but ideal for me. Not good if you need to store alot on it, although if you do need that I would recommend an external hard drive as this has been great for storing my photos and documents and freeing up my main computer so it runs better.
This netbook is great, I have had no issues or complaints with it and it fits perfectly in my bag without weighing it down too much. Everything I need and expected from this netbook and more!
