HP Mini-note 2133

I just got my hands on one of the Mini-Note 2133 ultra-portable notebook (netbook?) computers. A few first impressions are below, a taste of our upcoming HP 2133 vs. Eee PC 900 Battle Royale:

HP Mini-Note 2133 wins:

  • 2133 has a much nicer keyboard
  • 2133 has a cleaner design
  • 2133 has a faster processor (1.6Ghz vs. 900Mhz)
  • 2133 has more RAM (2GB vs. 1GB)

PC 900 wins:

  • Eee PC is cheaper ($550 vs. $729-819)
  • Eee PC is slimmer and lighter (2133 battery protrudes downward)
  • Eee PC has more USB 2.0 ports (3 vs. 2)
  • Eee PC is easier to dual boot with Ubuntu

Obviously the HP 2133 has a lot going for it, however it’s significantly more expensive. Stay tuned for more in-depth information about these trendy new netbooks and how they compare for power, usability, and value.
