HP, Acer, and pretty much every netbook maker on the planet are busy putting out new models in time for the summer. And that means tech journalists are busy reviewing them. Here are a few of the latest netbook reviews from around the web:

Laptop Magazine reviews the HP Mini 110

As expected, the HP Mini 110 is both thicker and heavier than the HP Mini 1000. But it also has a full sized VGA port, and a faster, higher capacity hard drive than you’ll find in the HP Mini 1000. The netbook also still has an awkward touchpad with buttons on the left and right sides instead of below the trackpad.

GadgetMix reviews the Acer Aspire One AO751H

I’m still reluctant to call anything with a screen larger than 10.2 inches a netbook, but I’m starting to think I’m in the minority. Anyway, whether it’s a netbook or not, the Acer Aspire One AO751H with an 11.6 inch display is certainly a thin, light, and energy efficient laptop thanks to its Intel Atom Z520 processor. GadgetMix reports that the pokey processor makes the laptop feel much slower than most netbooks with faster Intel Atom N270 CPUs. While the system performance was mediocre at best, the computer did get a decent 5.5 hours of battery life.

Laptop Magazine reivews the Acer Aspire One AOD250

The Acer Aspire One AOD250 is the second 10 inch netbook from Acer, and it’s thinner and lighter than the original Aspire One D150. But it still runs between about $300 and $350 and comes with an optional 6 cell battery which should be good for around 6 hours of run time. Unlike Acer’s 8.9 inch models (and the HP Mini 110), the touchpad buttons are placed below the trackpad, not on the left and right.
