HP's much-rumoured 2133 Mini-Note PC is now official in the UK. This attempt to exploit the market tapped so successfully by the ASUS Eee will cost from £299 (ex. VAT) for a Linux-based configuration.
The 1.27kg Mini-Note has an 8.9in. display and a webcam, is powered by a VIA C7-M processor (not Intel's new Atom), and comes with either 1GB or 2GB of RAM, 802.11b/g or a/b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (optional), a shock-protected 120GB hard disk (not an SSD), a 3-cell (2h 15m claimed life) or 6-cell (4h 30m claimed) Li-ion battery and runs Linux.
We'll post a full review of this ultramobile system just as soon as we can get our hot little hands on it.
