Hewlett-Packard today announced its first fully-functional ultra-mobile mini notebook PC. Compact and stylish, the HP 2133 Mini-Note PC boasts an 8.9 inch screen and weighs just 1.19kg. Intended for use anywhere and anytime; the HP Mini-Note delivers a light and mobile computing experience with all the capabilities of a standard notebook PC.

Features

  • A fully-functional PC that measures just 27 mm (at front) x 255 mm x 165 mm
  • Scratch-resistant 8.9-inch WXGA (1280×768 pixels) display with a user-friendly regular-sized keyboard (QWERTY) and touchpad with scroll zone
  • A powerful and lightweight device, running on a VIA C7-M ULV Processor (up to 1.6 GHz & 800MHz FSB, 128 KB L2 cache)
  • Pre-installed with Genuine Windows Vista Business (other options to follow will be Home Basic, FreeDOS and SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop)
  • Simple, refined design in anodised aluminium that is sleek and durable yet lightweight
  • Secure and safe with no visible screws, making the case tamperproof
  • Ability to view video, capture still-images, web-conference or enjoy video-enhanced instant messages with optional VGA webcam
  • Two battery options – 3-cell for lightest-weight configurations, or 6-cell for extended battery life
  • Wireless technologies such as optional integrated Wi-Fi Certified WLAN2 and Bluetooth1, allowing users to access the Internet as well as communicate via email, IM, chat, VOIP and blogging. The wireless technologies also enable connections at hotspots as well as Bluetooth integration with external devices including printers, mice and headsets
  • Spill resistant keyboard which channels fluid away from vital components
  • HP 3D DriveGuard which protects the notebook’s hard drive against impact, bumps, or drops; a 3D digital accelerometer motion sensor detects and notifies the system software of any sudden movement and sends a command to temporarily park the hard drive.
