Haave been a Mac user at home for years and have a nice MacBook. I found that so many things I wanted to do online didn't fit with the Mac software profile. The little Mini does everything I want to do online. I can download all types of games that I couldn't on my Mac. The Mini is so light weight that I sllipped it into my carry on bag on my Christmas trip rather than having to bring its own bag. It was fun having Mini as travel companion that fit nicely on the fold out tray. Made me feel smug at all those other full size laptop users. No problem with the wi-fi. On my recent trip I was easily able to access free wifi at the airport on the way and also at the hotel. Even though I have very large hands the keyboard and the mouse don't feel cramps and are easy to use. Other mni notebooks that I checked out before I decided on the Mini had little teeny tiny touch pad that would have been impossible for anyone other than Tinkerbell to use. Glad I got the 6 cell battery. Batery life is really great and pretty much lasts all day. Other laptops last maybe two hours without a charge. I like that I can go for long amounts of time without having to charge up. One criticism. Some of the systems installed by HP to supposededly keep the system healthy keep popping open and won't go away. This is annoying when I am trying to do other things.
