HP unveils the new Mini 2140 Netbook

HP has recently launched new netbook, HP Mini 2140.  This is a long-awaited upgrade for the HP-mini lovers, who were let down by the snail-speed VIA processor. The HP has completely ruled out the VIA processor from the scene and have opted for the Intel Atom N270 processor running at 1.6Ghz. Like it’s sibling mininote 2133, it is surrounded by by all-aluminum casing. HP has also bumped up both the screen-size and resolution to 10.1″ and 1366 x 768 respectively although a lower resolution model with 1024 x 576 resolution is also available. With the 3-cell battery, it weighs a modest 1.3kg

Features

  • Intel Atom N270 processor @ 1.6Ghz
  • 10.2-inch diagonal scratch-resistant HP Illumi-Lite LED display
  • 1024 x 576 or 1366 x 768 resolution
  • 80GB SSD or HDD
  • 92%  full-size QWERTY keyboard
  • VGA webcam
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0
  • 3-cell or 6-cell battery pack
  • HP Dura Keys HP 3D Drive Guard and HP Panel Protection System

From the specifications, it is clear that the HP mini 2140 offers much more than the regular netbooks have to offer. It has a built-in accelerometer to detect free-falls, which locks the head of the HDD so that it does not get damaged. It maintains the excellent keyboard, which was there in the mininote 2133. It has HP Dura-finish on the keys to prolong the life of the keys. It will be launched sometime this month with a competitive price tag of $499.
