The Mini 5103 Review

The Mini 5103 is a little net book that has a bias for the corporate client. It is a laptop that can be trusted to perform most computer chores well. You will especially love its great keyboard and trackpad. The touchscreen is also worth a mention. Overall, the performance of the Mini 5103 is below per mostly due to its enemic processor. The price of the device varies from a low of $399 and a high of $1000. The unit comes in a 10.1 inches with a native resolution of 1366 by 768 pixels.

The Mini 5103 uses a dual core intel Atom N550 processor that moves at a rather pedestrian 1500 MHz. The CPU is definately guilty for as it does not offer a top -draw performance. The machine also comes with a rather limited 2 GB DDR3 memory with a speed of 1333 MHz. The storage is provided by a single hard disk drive that packs a total capacity of 160 GB with an impressive speed of 7200 RPM. Besides the hard disk drive there are other auxilially storage facilities, that is, the SD/ MMC Card and SDHC Card.

For its GPU purposes the machine uses integrated GMA 3150 graphics chipset from intel. The Mini 5103 scores a mark of 35 on the WorldBench Test, which even if mundane is very much in line with what most netbooks produce. The machine is quite useful in video playback. It proves its worth even when you play top -notch files at 1080 pixels and upper -notch 720 pixel MP4 number that proves to be a tough nut to crack for some laptops, let alone netbooks. The 1366 by 768 resolution display portrays great imaging, but can be a hinderance for other application due to its small 10.1 inch display. But a lower 1024 by 600 pixel resolution display is available to catter for those applications.

The machine operates Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Edition Operating system. You will also get other softwares as part of the deal, including, PDF Complete, WinZip 14.5, Corel Home Office and Roxio. Your shipment of the device also bestores you with Skype. The touchscreen offers offers great presentations, but at the expense of arm fatigue which is caused by the vertically -inclined screen that cannot tilt beyond 45 degrees. The networking connections are provided by 10/100/1000 ethernet and 802.11n/b/g Wi -Fi. The Mini 5103 comes ensuite three USB 2.0 ports, but you will not get the services of Firewire ports. It uses video interface VGA, with no HDMI and eSATA.

The keyboard comes with a chiclet design that is all the fuss this days, but it feels more crisp than most. The keyboard does not come with a separate numeric pads, while its generous spacing is prone to gather debris and hence the keyboard require regular cleaning. The machine also comes with a shiny finish and its quite responsive despite being separated from the keyboard deck.
