HP may have been late getting into the netbook party. However, it is making up for lost time by introducing all sorts of new models. HP announced this week a new netbook called the Mini 5101 series offered through its small and medium business site.
The machine has an Intel Atom N280 processor running at 1.66GHz and uses the Intel 945GSE chipset. Memory options include 1GB or 2GB of 533MHz DDR2 SDRAM. Storage options include 160GB, 250GB, and 320GB 7200 rpm HDDs or a 128GB SSD.
The screen is a 10.1-inch LED backlit WSVGA unit with anti-glare coatings with graphics via Intel GMA 950. A 2-megapixel webcam is built-in along with three USB ports, Wi-Fi, VGA out, headphone jack, and an RJ45 port. WWAN via AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon are optional. The netbook starts at 2.86 pounds and can be had with a 4-cell or 6-cell battery.HP, Netbook
