    The Greatest Mini Laptops of 2011

    The netbook market has been on fire for the past several years as hardware components have become increasingly tiny and manufacturers launch into an all-out price war. Consumers have stood to benefit from this trend, getting more and more power in a smaller form factor and for less money than just a few months ago. But a stiff competition means that there are winners as well as losers — so who has the best netbook computer on the market today?

    Toshiba Mini NB305-N410

    As far as netbooks are concerned, the Toshiba Mini NB305-N410 is a portable power house that will satisfy even the most demanding mobile user. It ships with a 250GB hard drive, which is more than large enough for the typical applications and documents used by a computer of this size and magnitude. And it backs up that massive amount of space with a respectable 1GB of built-in memory. Combined with a powerful and snappy Intel® Atom N450 processor, there’s very little this miniature laptop can’t do.

    For applications like video and audio chatting, the Toshiba Mini includes a webcam built into the laptop’s bezel as well as a microphone hidden behind the screen’s edges. It all adds up to one powerful, all-encompassing laptop that will dazzle power users and the mobile professional alike.

    Asus Eee PC 1015PE

    Asus could arguably be considered the leader in the netbook space, and its Eee PC 1015PE is a monster of a machine in a very miniature package. This netbook computer comes standard with Windows 7 pre-installed; it powers Microsoft’s latest operating system with a 1.83GHz Intel Atom N475 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a sizable 250GB hard drive. Its 10.1″ screen is the perfect compromise between small and viewable; and, despite its powerful punch, its internal battery lasts a staggering 13 hours when disconnected from the included charger. That makes it a great fit for business travellers who need a fast machine that can endure very long flights and a distinct lack of electrical outlets.

    HP Mini 5102

    This laptop is generally marketed toward the savvy businessman or the student on the go — both groups which require mobile broadband with a laptop. And it’s for good reason. The HP Mini 5102 lasts a respectable 10 hours on the road and comes with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom processor. It’s 1GB of RAM and 250GB hard drive put it into the upper echelon of mobile computing, and its included USB slots are perfect for mobile broadband dongles from the major wireless carriers around the world.

    Acer Aspire One D260

    It has been a long time coming, but Acer has finally broken into the top tier of super-portable computing. Its Aspire One D260 notebook comes with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom processor — the same processor included in the competing HP model — as well as the standard 1GB of RAM and 250GB hard drive that people expect from top-of-the-line netbooks. Its 8 hour battery life is respectable, but the Acer model really shines in matters of durability. The case is firm and stable and is designed to survive a lifestyle that is often chaotic, travelling, and on the move. It’s the perfect model for the traveller who needs a portable computer that is both stylish and rugged.

    1. Nihar,
      Out of all those mini laptops I would definitely consider an Asus. I have an Asus desktop and I love it. If you want a good laptop other than Apple, I highly recommend the Asus.
