Hp Mini 1109

Hello again.... today i would like to talk about my netbook, the HP Mini 1109 (HP Mini 1100 series). It's been a month now since i bought this thing (July) and i want to share my experiences to you guys if you are planning to buy a netbook. First of all, I don't memorize the specs =) so I googled for it's detailed notes (source HP)

Stylishly designed for elegance on the go, the HP Mini-1109TU 10.1 inch Netbook is ultra-lightweight but with the storage flexibility of the HP Mini Mobile Drive. Featuring a near full-sized keyboard for ease of typing and a 10.1-inch screen for great visibility, the HP Mini gives you endless possibilities for connecting anywhere. Comes with a 1.60GHz Intel Atom Processor N270 and an 80GB hard drive.

The first reason why I bought an HP Mini netbook is because of it's design. It's black and looks like an Ipod which is very smooth and striking. The second is the price. Most of the Hp Mini netbooks comes with a Windows XP, and I only bought this model for Php 18,900, to think that Windows XP could cost you around 5,000 alone. The third is it's portability. The Hp Mini is very small and lightweight, weighs less than your standard English Textbook, The LCD monitor is 10.1 inches wide and boasts a stunning display and sharpness. The keys are large surprisingly large (Before I was hesitant to buy a netbook because I thought that it's keyboard is fit for dwarfs and the like!)

The sound is loud and crisp for a netbook. What more can I say?


Of course there are cons. I don't want to be biased because the purpose of this post is to share my experiences with potential buyers of this netbook. But don't worry it's just some minor flaws in which IMHO HP needs to work out on. First is it's short battery life. The HP Mini is packaged with a 3 cell battery which gives you about 1 1/2 hours of battery life, which is not for the Burger King-Mall WiFi peeps (heh). The Hp Mini also has limited resolution, which is not intended for gaming. But of course flash games, Window-based games, and some online games that support 1024x576 and 640x480 resolution works fine like Ragnarok Online and Ran.

So it's 5 pro's vs. 2 cons. That makes the HP Mini a superior competitor on the netbook era. So, if you are planning to get a netbook, you might want to consider putting Hp Mini on your list, a netbook that is packed with features, easy on the budget, and comes with a great after-sales service warranty.

Psycho-Emotional Self. How will you control your temper?

I have the tendency to get offended sometimes and on rare occasions, I can lose my temper. I think it is normal for a human being to lose their cool sometimes. I guess I can work on controlling my temperament more, in order to efficiently deal with people and avoid future conflicts. My action plans would be
1.) Listen to what others are saying – I know when you lose your temper you have the tendency to “Not listen anymore”, and the other person might have a point on what he/she wants to say. If you don’t know how to listen and to address their concern, chances are the argument will continue and there will be no negotiation that is going to happen.
2.) Learn to understand – So if I manage to listen to the person I am in conflict with, I must learn to understand more of their needs. I need to learn if their need is manageable to work out. If the answer is yes, then I need to give way to their point and learn to understand their feelings. Sometimes things don’t really go after yo…
