The HP 2133 Mini-Note PC: Made to Compete with the Eee PC?
Is this HP’s new Eee PC killer?
The Mini-Note PC from HP is available with a range of VIA Processors, an 8.9″ Display (with a native resolution of 1280 x 786) and you can choose between Vista or Linux for your operating system.
The keyboard is almost full-size (92% of a full size keyboard) so it should be quite good for typing. Due to the resolution of the screen, it is easier to view websites without having to scroll as much as you do on an Eee PC 701 for example.
It comes in 5 different configurations and costs between $499 and $849.
The specs for the $599 configuration are:
- Operating system – Windows Vista Home Basic 32
- Processor – VIA C7-M ULV processor (1.2 GHz, 128 KB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)
- Memory – 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
- Hard drive – 120 GB 5400 rpm SATA
- Display size – 8.9-inch diagonal WXGA
- Graphics – VIA Chrome 9
- Network interface – 10/100/1000 NIC
- Wireless – Broadcom 802.11a/b/g
- Battery – 3-cell (28 WHr) high capacity Lithium-Ion
- Weight – 2.8 lb (1.27 kg)
- Dimensions (w x d x h) – 10.04 x 6.5 x 1.05 in (255 x 165 x 27 mm)
This could make an excellent traveling partner where you just need something small and light to use for general work.
