[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Design[/COLOR]

Weighing in at only 1.3Kg, the Mini-Note will be able to go anywhere that you do without weighing you down. Unlike other mini Notebooks on the market, the Mini-Note has a surprisingly large and comfortable keyboard. If typing on the go is vital for you then the Mini Note is ideal.

Adding to the HP 2133 portability is its sturdy design. The simple, refined design and all- aluminum case make it sleek, sturdy and light weight. Features like the Durable Keyboard and magnesium alloy support structure ensure that Mini-Note is built to last.

To complement the attractive design of this Mini-Note, the HP 2133 comes with a high resolution 8.9 inch display running at a native resolution of 1,280x768. This is great for running business applications such as spreadsheets and word documents.

[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Features [/COLOR]

The Mini-Note packs in all the essential features to keep you connected wherever you go. two USB ports, an Ethernet Port and VGA connection are all included. With built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, you will be able to connect to Wi-Fi hotspots on the go.

This version of the HP 2133 Mini-Note comes with SuSE Linux. This intuitive Operating System offers everything the Consumer/Prosumer market require without overloading the machine with unnecessary features.

[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]Performance[/COLOR]

To power the Mini-Note, HP has installed a 1.2 GHz C7-M ULV processor and 1GB of RAM. Whilst the machine may not be suitable for demanding tasks such as video-editing, for your general day to day business applications the Mini-Note will be more than capable. Storing all of your files will also not be a problem as the Mini-Note comes with a 120GB Hard Drive.

Small in size, big on potential. The HP 2133 Mini-Note PC features a durable design with a robust suite of wireless, multimedia and security capabilities to allow users to stay productive.

The original deal for this from Misco is here costing a little more.

But there may be answered questions in the thread :

Thanks for the link Mecoconuts - good idea :)

I was tempted but then read a few reviews.

"Having rightly criticised the two and half to three hours managed by the Eee PC 900, the Mini-Note makes it look like a thoroughbred in this department. Using the Mini-Note at full brightness with wireless turned on resulted in a disappointing one and half hours, while even turning off wireless and cutting brightness in half only added a further 30 minutes of very light usage."

Hot for price, not for product

This is an absurb price to an awesome machine.

The processor is poor, but everything else, specifically the screen is incredible.

If I had the money I'll buy it immediately. Hot

It's a good price, shame the processor and battery life lets it down.
I believe there was an Atom processor based model in the pipeline, this may be driving the price cut.
#7
does the OS also let it down??
#8
I only really use a laptob for Internet browsing. So something like this woul really appeal to me:)
Voted HOT:thumbsup:

Poor processor compared to all the others in this segment.
#10
Also 1 and a half hour battery life that is terrible my 15" dell does up to 6 hours in low power mode !
#11
While many reviews criticise the CPU (and rightly so), it is still a very capable machine, and the pricing makes it a bit of a gem imo, the build quality is significantly better than any other netbook currently available imo.

Many people claim you cant even play youtube videos full screen, and this is true, if you stick with the linux distro pre-installed. However, if you install XP and some optimised drivers, it's a different story, and smooth playbook is totally possible. You can even just about play 720p stuff on it.

I doubt your dell comes with a 3 cell battery though does it? and I bet it didnt cost less than £200 :)

negated with superior expansion possibilities (express card slot), 120gb hdd, 1280x768 screen, amazing build quality...

completely, the OS supplied (and enterprise linux distro) has awful drivers, and weighs it down. XP with a performance orientated configuration, and its a reasonably fast machine for browsing.

I am looking for a budget notebook for my 10 year old. Didn't want to pay over £150, don't need anything too hi-tech as he would mainly use it for internet game sites - any suggestions?
#19
That 1.2 VIA Processor will be will be absolute ****. I wouldn't bother with this one. Better off with the 1.6 Atoms.
#20
No on both counts. But it only cost £249 and that was at the start of the year !
#21
No optical drives = fail. I had a 10" HP for work about 2 years ago and they could fit an optical drive in that.

Bumps the price up and hardly anyone uses them anymore. I think your missing the point, these are not laptops they are netbooks.
#23
Fantastic design, shame about the battery (you can get a 6-cell but it bulges out of the bottom) and processor, but at this price it would be the one I'd go for as I doubt I'll be wanting to do anything very processor intensive anyway.
banned#24
Battery life seems to be the disadvantage on this.

Does this come with a car charger? If not how much will one cost and can you please post a link to the car charger.


Thanks

Try google or Kelkoo??

Poor processor, nice screen, but processor can't process 720p video unlike the Atom based netbooks using CoreAVC, so screen is a bit of a waste. Would also let you down in playing old games or doing other tasks compared to an Atom model, due to processor.
#27
hot deal, the price is good and is well built it does not look cheap like the eee pc or the acer.
The processor is for a notebook not a laptop therefore is good enough once you stick a win XP on it.
Its 8.9 inch screen is not like you going to make it as your main home pc or a laptop for £190!
Go for it hot hot hot

It can do 720p using coreavc, although it may drop a few frames here and there.

You can take linux off and put a copy of xp on it, also upgrade ram to 2gb (£16) and hard drive to 320gb if you want to. Don't think it works well with vista, but, definately a good price.

by the time you've done that - you might aswell have purchased a Samsung NC10!

There's a reason this is cheap and it's to do with Linux, puny battery life and a very poor CPU! You will probably see this go for under £150 soon - really depends how many units are still available. HP made a big mistake here - totally misjudged the Intel Atom bandwagen.

Why? you'll have a machine with a half the hdd space, half the ram, lesser build quality, lower resolution screen, less expansion...
#32
The samsung is much quicker, the VIA CPU is very slow comapred to the Atom
The new HP Mini 1000 (Which isnt available in the UK) looks the best yet

Samsung NC10 is best I think. Triple runtime, bigger battery, better screen, more USB ports.
#34
I've seen this one in the flesh (or is that "in the aluminium"?) and it is a really well built machine. It made the Acers, Asuses and Winds look rather like kids toys in that area. Very nice keyboard too. I can't compare it to the Samsung as I've not tried one yet but from what I've read I think this would take more abuse. A shame about the battery life - that's all that would put me off. The mentioned slowness wouldn't bother me on a netbook - it's really meant for web and mail isn't it?

OK you got me on that one

intranix
... half the ram ...


The extra 1GB is wasted on XP running in this machine

intranix
... lesser build quality ...


Very debatable - HP lives on ir's ancient reputation - in past years their laptops suffer just as much as everyone elses - my OB500, EVO NC620 and NC6000 machines all suffered failures within 2 years.

intranix
... lower resolution screen ...


TBH I'd rather not squint at a 8.9" 1280x768 reflective screen and prefer a more user friendly 10.2" non-reflective 1024x 600 screen

intranix
... less expansion ...


Do I really need battery sapping expansion capability on a unit that barely manages 90mins on it's own

Like I said there's reasons why HP is offloading this netbook. I'd really urge prospective buyers to google around to see how bad this netbook is!

Probably true, but it's not available yet, is it ?

BTW can you get Windows Messenger on Linux ? I haven't managed it yet.

it's been available in white since the beginning of the month. Stocks are bit low at certain retailers though.

I Ordered this laptop at 16.57 on 12th November and received it Today 13th November at 12.35.
Excellent service, I ticked the box for free delivery within one week so I am Over The Moon.
It is a beautiful bit of kit well built , lovely screen, Runs linux no problems at all and at this price a bargain. I was a bit dubious about ordering from this company considering the comments and feedback some customers left but make sure you order with your Visa Card and you cannot go wrong. Thankyou for your posting i saved £12 as I was going to get one from Misco.
Thanks Again Oui,:thumbsup:
