The HP Mini 1151NR Netbook from Verizon Wireless is not only a stylish portable device, but it easily surpasses other laptops available in the market.

Available at $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and new two-year activation on a Mobile Broadband plan, the Netbook is also the cheapest laptop offered. The competition can’t compare with laptops ranging from an estimated cost of $399 to $3,000.

For college students looking for an affordable computer the Netbook is perfect. Not only is it inexpensive but it has your basic necessities.

The essentials includes e-mail, Web browse, instant messaging social networking, videos, movies, photos and Microsoft Works. In addition more than 30 applications come pre-installed on the device including VZ Access Manager, Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player and HP Wireless Assistant.

The Verizon Wireless’ high-speed wireless network is enhanced with EV-DO Revision. A technology for fast and efficient Web browsing and access to corporate Intranet and e-mail. The Internet is reliable because one doesn’t need a Wi-Fi connection. The Netbook allows you to stay linked to the Web, with just a click of the mouse. This is great when you don’t have the extra cash to give to local bookstores or coffee shops to receive an Internet connection.

The Netbook also attracts customers because of its small frame. This lightweight device is easy to transport from place to place, making other laptops look bulky and overbearing. The computer only weighs 2.4 pounds and in dimensions is 1” x 10.3” x 6.6.” Ladies can easily fit the Netbook in their purse and men can easily carry it in a briefcase.

According to Verizon Wireless, customers traveling abroad can use Verizon’s GlobalAccess service to stay connected, informed and entertained in more than 175 destinations. Plus more than 45 of those destinations offer 3G speeds.

I definitely recommend the Netbook to anyone desiring a reliable laptop, especially college students who need it to write those last minute term papers or for the occasional Facebook check. Not only is it portable, but its trendy.

The HP Mini is available online at www.verizonwireless.com and in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores.
