New software enhances the HP Mini 210 PC’s multimedia experience and makes it even easier to access offline content and update files on the go, anytime and anywhere:
— Access your music, photos and documents from anywhere with HP Cloud Drive – Allows users to access their synchronised content – including documents, photos and music – from the cloud without having to store it on a local drive.
— On-demand access to your media with HP MediaStream – Allows users to stream multimedia content from one PC to another over the Internet, without requiring data to be downloaded.

— Access the Internet in an instant with HP QuickWeb – Allows users to access the web without booting up the notebook by simply pushing a button. In seconds, users have a connection to the Internet and can access websites and other content that normally requires a standard browser, as well as photos, music and more.(5)
In addition to viewing HD content on the Internet, users can experience their own personal multiplex via an optional Broadcom® Crystal HD Enhanced Video Accelerator, which allows users to enjoy up to 1,080-pixel HD content.(6,7)
The HP Mini 210 supports up to 2 gigabyte (GB)(8) of memory and large hard drive options up to 320 GB(9), offering plenty of space to store movies, music, applications and files.
