Just got a HP MINI 110-3538TU Netbook so I can connect back to Work in Australia if needed when I am away from site.

Pro’s

  • It’s small and portable
  • Windows 7 Starter seems to have all that I need (Windows PPTP VPN, Remote Desktop Client (mstsc.exe)).
  • I have installed Libre Office, Gimp, WinSCP, PuTTY and all the other stuff I likes successfully
  • Great for as a travelling companion for web and email

Cons

  • The HP Splashtop environment theme is too dark which makes it difficult to see menu options.
  • Not a power house
  • Low res screen (1024×600)
  • No Home and End keys!!!! I didn’t pick this up when I looked at it in the shop doh!!!

Work-a-round for missing Home and End keys HP Mini 110

Key CombinationWhat it does
Fn + Up ArrowPage Up
Fn + Down Arrow Page Down
Fn + Left ArrowHome
Fn + Right ArrowEnd

    None of these shortcuts works on my HP Mini 110 (though they are supposed to). Fn+Spacebar gives PgDn and Shift+Spacebar gives PgUp. Have found nothing for Home or End.

      Don’t quote me but maybe you need to go into the BIOS and try and change the settings to allow it. From memory I tweaked the BIOS but I think that was to turn off the Function 1-10 keys so they worked as F1-10 instead of the HP MIni assigned functions of media control buttons etc.
