Mini notebooks are the ultra portable computers you can easily slip in your bag and even in your pocket and hit the roads. They are small, they provide the everyday essentials you need and they have a long battery life to go with everything. But there are also some sacrifices when it comes to mini notebooks, as they don’t have an optical drive and their configuration is just average, so no playing intense games and running applications and media streaming. You will however be able to watch videos, listen to music, manage the internet and e-mailing, and edit documents and Microsoft package and the rest. Most of the major manufacturers or notebook and laptop computers came up with some great mini notebooks, so stick around and you will learn more about them.

Asus Eee PC 1018PB-BK801 is a successful model as it brings a slim design in discussion, excellent touch pad and not to mention that Asus was the first manufacturers to bring mini notebooks on the market. Over generations, the edition of such devices has been improved and now you can admire newer models, with a lot to say thanks to their looks. The pricing is quite reasonable with such devices in general and this Asus netbook is priced at around $349 and offers the Intel Atom N450 processor, 1GB DDR2 memory, integrated Intel GMA 3150 graphics and Windows 7 Starter. The screen size is 10.1”, average for most of mini systems out there. Samsung doesn’t stay behind and has some successful models of its own; Samsung NF310 A01 is also a very good looking device, with a curved and sleek design, HD screen, Bluetooth and a large keyboard. With $399 price tag you get the Intel Atom N550 dual-core processor, 1GB DDR3 memory, 250GB hard drive and the same screen size. The HD display features sharp and crisp images, but the viewing angles are limited.

Moreover, Toshiba Mini NB305-N410BN has a great battery life, very good sound coming from the built-in speakers and a large touch pad for navigating without an external mouse. This mini notebook is actually an improvement over the first Toshiba NB305, but it has excellent quality, just like the previous models and the price is the same. Acer Aspire One 533 looks good, but has the same level of performance as its competitors, comes with a 250GB hard drive, USB ports, VGA, but no HDMI. If you want to buy it, it is worth it due to its looks and if you are an Acer fan, but it does not bring anything too innovative. Asus Eee PC Lamborghini comes at a higher price, but it is understandable due to the special edition. It is one great combination of power and design, but it costs. It has a 12.1” display, the Lamborghini logo on the lid and when you hit the power button it even makes the engine noise of a car. If you are passionate about cars, then this really is an attraction for you. Even performance is better, as the mini notebook packs 2GB of RAM, dual-core Atom D525 processor and NVIDIA Ion graphics. Even so, you will have some problems playing 3D games.

All these manufacturers have plenty other mini notebooks from which you can choose and, especially Dell with its colorful line of mini systems, looking adorable and ready to make your day a lot better.
