Mini-Notebook Typing Madness Part II: HP Mini-Note

Welcome back to the Mini-Dome! In case you’re just joining us, LAPTOP searched all over our office for four typists who were brave enough to take on the ASUS Eee PC, the HP Mini-Note and the CTL 2Go PC in the ultimate type-off challenge. Yesterday, our typing gladiators took on the ASUS Eee PC with varying results. Emily “Key Crusher” Kizer came in first with 57 words per minute (wpm); Avram “The ESC Artist” Piltch and TJ “Furious Fingers” Fink tied for second with 42 wpm and Jeffrey “Hands of Steel” Wilson took third place with 38 wpm. Today, our typists enter the conference room with their fingers stretched and ready to conquer the HP 2133 Mini-Note. With a wear-resistant keyboard that’s only 8% smaller than a full size keyboard , the Mini-Note looks like it’ll be a walk in the park compared to the Eee PC. Check out how our contestants fared and how they scored in the video below and come back tomorrow as our keyboard warriors risk hand cramps to take on the 2Go PC.

    First I must beat you with a stick before watching the video.

    Another beating with a stick! Also put the test results in the article text! Now I can’t remember who did what!

  3. HP Lovin Fool Says:

    Sounds like the keys get pretty hot. Still, I can’t wait to get mine and warm my fingers with it.

  4. World's Best Todd Says:

    I hear Todd Haselton isn’t allowed in the typing contest because he types so fast the paint on the keys evaporates and computer companies get mad.

    He types so fast on cell phones that the T in T9 stands for Todd
