This view allows you see the depth of the box, which is probably about as small as it can possibly be.

Opening the box reveals a large-ish instruction sheet that covers the goods hidden beneath.

Here's the HP mini itself in the foreground, with the battery at left rear and the power-supply at right rear -- all in their original packaging. The power supply is impressively small.

Here you can see all the HP iron, fully unpackaged. In the foreground is the battery, which came with a decent amount of charge.

Taking the HP Mini 1151NR netbook for a test drive at my local diner. No that's not a marketing shot :)

A picture of the Dell Vostro A90, my current favorite hackintosh (left) compared to the VZW/HP Mini 1151NR (right). Note the HP’s wider (10-inch) screen and larger keys — both are welcome additions. One thing that I can’t get used to, however, is the HP’s side-mounted trackpad buttons. They’re super-unnatural feeling and would require years of de-programming to get comfortable with.
