Hey guys, I searched through but couldn't find many threads on this. We have computer labs all over campus, but I do my best note taking when typing. I have a 17.6 laptop that is massive and used as a "home" computer so I set out... Read More

The only problem is the up arrow key is getting popped in and out of the track - an obvious flaw with this particular one they gave me. To exchange it, I have to drive back an hour and a half BOTH ways - so I am hoping Best Buy will send me one and let me ship this one back. It'll still be a pain seeing as how I'll have to reinstall everything.
But overall, the HP 210 mini I got ended up costing 350 after tax plus 22 for a nice padded sleeve. A little pricey, but the screen resolution is very good, it's not super sluggish if only doing a few tasks at a time, and it's very quiet and doesn't seem to overheat easily on a table top. The other laptops I was looking at were in the 7-800 range. I didn't get a warranty yet since it's covered with a year under HP and I can upgrade to a longer one through them if I want to during that time.
I'm going to try it - since I have up to 14 days to return and see if I'm actually utilizing it a lot. If not, back it goes. It's really pretty and I like it, but if I don't use it it'll be a 370 dollar piece of cuteness wasted =).
