I picked up the HP Mini 1000 as soon as it was available from the HP online store. The review was pretty much spot on with what I have experienced over the past 2 months of use except for 1 issue.
Overall a great little PC (also has the best netbook keyboard in the business)that I use for:
1. Email and internet
2. MS Office when on the go
3. Mobile GPS Navigation (MS Streets and Trips w/GPS receiver)
4. Ripped DVD and steaming video viewing while traveling
5. Streaming audio to my outdoor "party" system
The issue is that this netbook's audio output jack is a software switchable combined mic/headphone jack. No big deal for my intended use but the resulting audio quality is not up to par. I contacted HP and they had me download a new audio driver and some other patch. Sound improved but still below what is typically expected from such devices. Now it's basically okay for movie headphone use but still not really acceptable for music, especially when driving any sort of audio system. My workaround is using a USB sound card, luckily I had one already but it's still annoying to have to carry something extra around.
Overall, maybe still the best netbook out there but check the audio out if you intend to use it. The odd screen resolution stretches windows a bit too, in case you are sensitive to that, but it's not an issue for me.
