The design reminds me of the MSI Wind U100 series — that swivel base, click-pad, rounded edges and position of the Ctrl and Fn key position.

  4. Pedro says:

  5. ricojake says:

    looks more like an Eeepc. Let’s see how it’ll fare with other netbooks in terms of price. Pababa na ng pababa price nila hehehe

  6. Calvin says:

    yeah seems like the first MSI Wind. I think the price of the Wind is around that range already. I wonder if it offers something else different.

  7. It’s cute. I plan to buy that by next month. DO you know any dealers with discounts?? :) thanks

  8. ok na sana…. really looks like the real thing, except:

    1) keyboard, HP Mini 1000 uses chicket type keys close to each other. this one has a regular type keyboard

    2) hinge, HP Mini 1000 uses center hinge with speaker on it. This one use side hinges.

    3) LCD screen, HP Mini 1000’s screen has a glass panel before LCD, an outer layer. This one only has an LCD.

    but on closed lid, and covering the Minix logo, this looks like it.

  9. its a MSI Wind clone.

  10. Darren says:

    6cell battery is of course option but according to Manufacturer, it will only be available in mid-July. Gentleman, php17500 is an aggressive price indeed.

  11. jong says:

    will wait for your review sir yugs

  12. Kiko says:

    you can buy this without an OS for 15k. and i dont think this comes with a 2gig ram out of the box. did they upgrade your review unit or does pc trends sell this with 2gigs already upgraded thus the higher price?

  13. jun says:

    Looks and specs are almost the same with the rest of other netbooks in the market.
    Maybe the price will be the main plus point here.

  14. ana says:

    price right now is P15k

  15. aqt says:

    i got mine the other day,2gb ram,and i’m also selling the white ones (1gb ram) for 15,000.

  16. bernie says:

    I got one from a shop in gilmore with 2gb of RAM for only 15 k.. It works well though the resolution of an atom netbook is only 1024 x 600, it cannot run power director and other video editing software except for sony vegas.. But its really fast with windows xp and works well with vista basic.

  17. Jet says:

    bernie, is it only sold in gilmore for 15k? im going to manila this week, and ill get one if thats the price…. where can i buy within makati with that price? pls help. thnx

  18. toni says:

    is the 15k in gilmore still without an OS? =/

  19. migs says:

    how much for d 6cell battery pls?ty

  20. Ivy says:

    I bought mine from Gilmore for 15,300 with OS. The OS was a trial version, I had to have it reinstalled.

    Anyway,does anyone know how much is the 3-cell battery? My battery has already deteriorated. I need to buy a new one. And I am wondering if I can replace the 3-cell with a 6-cell. Will the 6-cell battery fit in the same spot as the 3-cell?

  21. toni says:

    @Ivy… when did you buy your Minix? Sandali lang ba battery life nya?

    I bought mine mga March and okay pa naman battery life nya. I bought mine at Php14,000 or Php14, 500 I think, sa Gilmore. With OS na rin. Pero trial nga lang so I have to reinstall again.

  22. Ivy says:


    I bought it August 3 last year. Initially, 2 hours lang ang battery life nya. Tapos ngayon, mga 10 minutes na lang. Mas mura ‘yung iyo,amazing. 6 months lang ‘yung warranty ng battery e.

  23. Mike says:

    @Toni/Ivy: Could you tell me where I can buy replacement battery for Minix? I have mine for almost a year na. Not sure if I did the right things to take care its short battery life.

  24. Toni says:

    Nag deteriorate na rin battery ng Minix ko. Di ko alam san bibili eh. baka sa Gilmore din kung san binili.

  25. Mike says:

    I see. I got mine in Alabang for 13k without dos and OS. Main store is in Legarda. I just hope they would be able to sell me replacement batts. Thanks!
