Thanks jkk for that video.

- a bit more light when making video will be great
- no sleeve in the box?
- nice keyboard size but not for mobile devices
- glossy over and over oh no
- mmh lion polymer battery thats nice too who long the batterylife?
- what does that "ui" mean, something broken ? :-)
- you should name that video "unboxing dissection of hp 1000 mini with ssd" ;-)
- touchpad multitouch?
but for a small notebook i will be a good buy

looking forward to see more of that device, thanks again.

sorry for dark video.. cam setting was wrong... I can't really do unboxing again.

I will test and review it, so all areas will be covered.

Could you replace the SSD module with and Runcore one (mean this type of modules)?
Lost Warranty with that mod?
What kind of SSD did you try to put in?
This USB "internal" port looks good for mod... like touch screen?... please...

Amaizing unboxing!!!!!!!
WE WANT MODS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JLM: I don't think you will be able to add touchscreen easily - because of the edge-to-edge screen cover. But I might be wrong.

Hey JKK,

Where did you learn your Jedi skills? Noticed how you kept using "The Force".

Thanks for vid.

I just got my HP Mini 1035NR and I'm liking it so far. I just ordered a 2GB RAM and I hope to see the VGA adapter soon (I'm sure I'll eventually need it). LIKES... Full sized keyboard (wish there were more gaps between keys), lite and compact, fast enough for internet and office type use, over all good design, and affordable. HATES... screen doesn't tilt further back, a little too glossy (wipes comes in handy), minicam is not all that good (must have perfect lighting), headphone jack is crap, and wish it locks when screen is closed.

All in all... I like it a lot. Oh... And seeing JKK take that thing apart... WOW! That's some cool stuff.

Thanks very much for this, and other deep posts. The upgradability of these things is a big issue for many of us!

Looks like fingerprints are quite dimmed by the pattern on the hatch. Is it? JKK, as I know you don't like 10' netbooks. So, what do U think about this one, is it too big for U?
Cool video! :up:

Unknown said...

If it was possible to make this into a touch-screen fairly easily, then I would purchase one today. The 1000 seems fairly easily mod-able though, and I'm looking forward to seeing which changes come through for this.



Hayden said...

can anyone confirm or deny the presence of an ethernet jack?

JKK said...

Ethernet port is hiding under a rubber plug on the left side

Hey man, just a quick question.

How are we gonna use the CD when the laptop doesnt have a cd-rom?

So, you can pop a 2 GB memory module in there? Can anyone confirm a make and model that is working?

I looked through the other postings but could not find this info.

So can you fit a 2.5" hard drive in there? If so the possibilities are much more.

Anonymous said...

anybody figure out what hard drive you tried in there? when are you gonna post your new hard drives tests? i'm dying here!

I am agreed that
This USB "internal" port looks good for mod a touch screen
on it!~
But the touch screen parts must extreme slim and the control chip also.

I want a touch screen on my HP Mini 1000~~~

"HATES... screen doesn't tilt further back, a little too glossy (wipes comes in handy), minicam is not all that good (must have perfect lighting), headphone jack is crap, and wish it locks when screen is closed."

Totally agree with my limited time handling the unit at the local BestBuy I instantly had the same thoughts! Screen doesn't tilt back far enough! Web cam is crap! The either or speaker/headphone jack a bad idea!

I suggest you go to your local sunglass or eyeglass retailer and purchase the small lens cleaner pack.
Usually contains non-harming squirt bottle of cleaner and a micro-cloth inside a small plastic case and keep it in your computer bag.
The finger prints and smudges drive me nuts no matter what the device! I don’t understand how people deal with touch screens on mobiles, just too many smears for me!

I have a 1035nr that I got from best buy and it came with 6400s 1gb module. Bought a 2gb stick and it wont see 2gb. Ive heard it is the OS, but the bios wont see it, I dont see how the OS will.

Unknown said...

spoke with Chat support - the HP ships with 6400 sometimes. But 2gb 5300 will show up as 2gb, 2gb 6400 will only read 1gb (even after latest bios and bios reset). 4200 is what they say is supposed to work only.
Confused ? I was.

Here is my chat :

Derek : Hello Brian.
Brian Stokes : hi

Derek : Yes, the Notebook has two Memory slots.
Derek : I mean the Memory module specification.
Brian Stokes : well, the slot for memory, there is only 1
Brian Stokes : the hp 1035NR only has one my knowledge. Under the memory compartment is only one slot. Is there another slot under the keyboard or something ?
Derek : Please allow me 2-3 minutes while I check this.
Brian Stokes : ok
Derek : Thank you so much for your valuable time and patience.

Derek :
Brian Stokes : then which model supports the 2gb of ram
Brian Stokes : because that pdf didnt write even specifies that the HP 1000 is the only series that does 2gb ram
Brian Stokes : i dont understand is all - there are tons of websites linking and speaking about folks upping to 2gb of ram, and I cant ??
Brian Stokes : i have the ONLY 1000 that isnt supported to 2gb ?
Derek : Could I have 3-4 minutes of your time while I study this closely.
Brian Stokes : not a problem
Brian Stokes : i appreciate i
Brian Stokes : it
Derek : Thank you so much for your valuable time and patience.
Derek : I have contacted my supervisor in this regard.
Brian Stokes : it seems like the inconsistencies are wide...i hope you dont mind my concerns

Brian Stokes :
Derek : Bria, HP Mimi mi series is the Notebook which support 2gb memory.
Brian Stokes : these other guys are trying to say in that forum that the 1000 series does support it, but the OS load is keeping the machine frrom using 2gb ram
Brian Stokes : i dont get that
Brian Stokes : bios runs memory, not os
Brian Stokes : but same laptop as I have, and others got 2gb, and have been told 4gb works ??
Brian Stokes : what do ineed to load a different os on this ?
Derek : Brian, as per the tested infromation we have is the Notebook supports 1GB. However you can install 2GB.
Brian Stokes : i did lol but it only reports 1gb stick
Derek : I recommend you reset BIOS in this regard.
Derek :
1. Restart the notebook.

4. Navigate to Exit menu and select Save Changes and Exit.

I have the HP 1030miniNR - added a 2GB memory module and works fine in XP and Mac OS X 10.5.

Now I am trying to get the PCI-E internal slot working with a SuperTalent 32GB SSD.

It is not refused by the BIOS, but not recognized either.

Might try what this guy ( did and tape over two pins on the PCI-E card.

I put an Buffalo Select 2GB DDR2 PC-6400 800MHz in HP mini 1030nr and it works and recongised as 2GB.
No problem and it works better.
