Hewlett-Packard has updated its 2100 Mini-Note PC family with the new Mini 2140. The form factor remains much the same but under the hood, you’ll find some nice changes.
HP has replaced the Via C7 processor with a 1.60GHz Intel Atom N270 processor with a 945GSE Express chipset and Mobile Intel GMA 950 graphics. The 8.9-inch display has made way for a 10.1-inch HP Illumi-Lite LED display. The Mini 2140 also supports up to 2GB RAM, comes with a number of storage options (5400RPM or 7200RPM 160GB options or 80GB SSD), Wi-Fi, optional Bluetooth 2.0, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and Express Card/54 and SD card slots.
A number of operating system options are also to be offered, including Windows Vista Home Basic 32 or Business 32, Windows XP Professional or Home, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, and FreeDOS.
The HP Mini 2140 should be available later this month. The base configuration will start at USD$499.
