Netbooks are a lightweight and highly portable type of laptop between standard notebooks and ultralights. The HP Mini line encompasses a number of models, but they all maintain the core netbook design choices. A stripped down design ensures a Mini remains lightweight while external USB ports lets users attach external devices to make up for missing features like an optical drive.
Integrated wired and wireless connections allow Minis to connect to networks for the Internet access that is partly their namesake. Various models of Mini are available on eBay. An HP Mini gives you Internet access and basic word processing without any extra clutter.
