Hewlett Packard’s HP Mini 210 comes in a variety of attractive colors, and features a slim new design with a removable access panel making RAM and hard drive upgrades ridiculously easy. The base mdoel is just $280, but for $330 you can get the netbook with a high definition, 1366 x 768 pixel display. And for $365 and up, you can get the netbook with a Broadcom Crystal HD video accelerator to enable 1080p HD video playback on this low power netbook, making the HP Mini 210HD even cheaper than Dell’s HD-capable Inspiron Mini 10.

Engadget’s Joanna Stern has posted the first review I’ve seen of the HP Mini 210HD with a Broadcom video accelerator. The verdict? The laptop got decent, but not stellar battery life, 720p video (including Flash) played back smoothly, but 1080p Flash video wasn’t as smooth. The touchpad with integrated buttons, however, sounds like something that could take a lot of getting used to. Since the touchpad supports multitouch gestures, Joanna says it sometimes had a hard time distinguishing between actions.

Hit up Engadget for the complete review, including a video playback demonstration.
