Default Engadget Reviews the HP Mini 210 HD

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2010/02/25/hp-mini-210-hd-edition-review/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2010/02/25/...edition-review/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"But what about the $425 HD model? As we concluded with the Dell Mini 10, spending the extra money for the Broadcom is pretty hit or miss at the moment. Yes, Flash 10.1 Beta 3 allows for better Flash and Flash HD playback, but right now it's flaky at best. Whether that's worth the extra cash is up to you, but if you're looking for a netbook that can undoubtedly stream HD Flash content out of the box you're best looking at an NVIDIA Ion-powered system like the HP Mini 311, or better yet waiting for an Ion 2 system that uses NVIDIA's new Optimus technology and promises better battery life than the first generation."</em></p><p><em><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1267400220.usr10.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></em></p><p>If you must have HD on your netbook, looks like you will have to wait a bit longer. &nbsp;The Broadcom chip brings some improvements, but it is still not the user experience those that are demanding HD are expecting. &nbsp;I'm curious how many users are demanding HD though? &nbsp;I mean sure, it is nice to have, but a netbook is not my primary entertainment device. &nbsp;</p>
