HP 210-2130NR Netbook PC review

January 11th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

The HP’s 210-2130NR netbook PC comes with 10.1 inch screen and is powered by Atom N455 processor from Intel that is clocked at 1.66 GHz. The Atom N455 is a single core processor, which pales in performance in front of the new dual core processors that also comes in low power modes.

The HP 210-2130NR has 1 GB of RAM which is be a little bit too low if you plan to run a large number of programs simultaneously. Though the Microsoft Windows 7 Starter edition, the OS that comes with this notebook, does take a small foot print, the 1 GB of memory could be a bit too small if you are running multiple applications in parallel. While the RAM is a little low, the hard disk is ample in this netbook. The 250 GB of hard disk should give out enough space to you to do all your works. Many of the entry level notebooks have margibally higher 320 GB hard disk.

The display in the HP 210-2130NR is a 10.1″ diagonal LCD that has 1024 x 600 resolution. It is backlit driven by LED giving you brighter display. The display is driven by Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150.

The HP notebook comes with wired Ethernet LAN and in built Wireless connectivity option. Both these come with almost all the netbooks that come now a days, so, there is nothing specifically new here.

Other notable feature includes Built-in webcam and Multi format media card reader. There are 3 USB ports that you can use to cinnect USB devices.

In terms of the specifications we have found HP 210-2130NR same as the Toshiba NB505-N508BL and the Acer AOD255E-13493. All of them are powered by the Intel Atom N455 and have identical 1 GB of memory. They all come with 250 GB Hard drive. In terms of pricing, here are the street prices as observed at Walmart

HP 210-2130NR – $328
Toshiba NB505-N508BL – $298
Acer AOD255E-13493 – $268

We do not see any specific reason for HP 210-2130NR at higher prices. You may possibly invest $75 of so extra and get a notebook instead, unless you are looking for extreme mobility. If price is your concern, you may want to look at Acer AOD255E-13493 for $268 or the Toshiba NB505-N508BL at $298.

The HP 210-2130NR is identical to the HP 210-2130NR , except that the colors of the two netbooks are different.
