Netbooks were intended as inexpensive computers for first-time users in places where PC penetration had typically not progressed due to cost limitations. While popular in India and other developing markets, they also really took off with buyers in Asia and Europe who just liked the idea of having a light, reasonably cheap second or third PC that they could travel with, give their kids to use, or simply keep around as a spare.

This market preferred netbooks with slightly larger screens, more attractive design, and full Windows licenses, which drove prices up and alienated budget buyers. Then, tablets became popular, and buyers who were willing to pay for the portability and convenience of a netbook found that tablets suited them much better.


In almost no time at all, manufacturers began announcing that they were exiting the netbook market to focus on tablets and portable but expensive ultrabooks instead. Thus, there currently exists an unserved market segment for affordable computers capable of being used for real productive work. Is HP's new Pavilion 10 TouchSmart a fresh take on an old product category, and can it HP Pavilion 10 Touch 10-e011la that gap? Read on to find out. Look and feel So, is the Pavilion 10 a netbook? It certainly looks and feels like one. A quick glance at the list of specifications seems to confirm that it is indeed equipped with just the bare basic hardware to run a desktop version of Windows. But there is one HP Pavilion 10 Touch 10-e011la departure: This might be explained by HP's curious decision to use a touchscreen on such a low-end machine, but even so, it seems a bit excessive.


The Pavilion 10's performance will need to match its price if it wants HP Pavilion 10 Touch 10-e011la successfully transcend its netbook shell. The Pavilion 10 TouchSmart does look quite distinctive, with a smooth, shiny, silver polka-dotted lid. It definitely isn't the kind of machine you'd want to carry into a stodgy corporate boardroom, though it might pass off in a less formal work environment. The design continues on the inside, with a darker version of the same pattern on the front and sides of the keyboard deck.

The keyboard is cramped and smaller than normal, which is a total throwback to the old netbook days. HP's trademark squashed arrow key cluster is even more annoying than usual thanks to the space crunch.

At least all the important keys are in the right place. The trackpad is also squashed up against the front edge of the device. It's nearly HP Pavilion 10 Touch 10-e011la wide as a regular notebook trackpad, but significantly shorter. There's also no physical button at all, though the lower edge is clickable. The trackpad is also slightly recessed, making Windows 8's swipe gestures difficult to use. We wound up inadvertently switching apps when we didn't mean to, since the trackpad is small but still detects swipes near the edge as if they originated beyond its borders.

Around the edges you'll find two USB 2. There's a power indicator on the power button above the keyboard, and for some reason, another one on the front left edge, next to the hard drive activity indicator. A separate charging indicator is placed next to the power socket towards the rear of the right edge. The Pavilion 10 is certainly not ultrabook-slim, but mm is still reasonable.

Speaking of bags, we wish HP had thrown in a sleeve or slipcover with the Pavilion Very few bags have pouches that will fit devices this size, and considering how glossy its lid is, there's no way you'll avoid scratching it up if you let it rattle around with other objects.

Interestingly, AMD has claimed superiority on the integrated graphics front for a long while, but this particular model is a low-power unit that poses hardly any threat to Intel's offerings. Forget about high-quality gaming; there's barely enough meat on these bones for basic 2D and 3D graphics.
