The netbook has a smooth finish with a glossy lid that has an HP imprint on it. The keypad occupies all the available space and has chiclet style keys for comfortable typing. One good thing about the keypad is that it has dedicated arrow keys that do not have other combination functions. The palm rest area and the area above the keys have a matte finish and the touchpad is set in to its own area without blending into the palm rest. The touchpad is smooth and has two large click buttons. The over all design features very clean lines and smooth edges. It has two stumps below the screen so that the netbook is at an angle when placed on a flat surface.
The screen has a black bezel around it and centered on the top part is the webcam. The screen also has an anti-glare coating in order to be easier on the eyes and get rid of reflections.
The HP Mini 110-3730NR weighs less 3lbs and is 1.2inches at its thickest. This makes for a really portable machine that will easily fit in to your bag. Buyers reviews have some complaints about the slow speed and the Windows Starter edition that come bundled with it. However, there are ways to get around the limitations imposed by the starter edition that can be found online. And the processor is strong enough to handle simple tasks like web surfing and emailing. However, it is not strong enough to handle multitasking beyond that.
