Linux version of this beauty has been posted several times, but I believe this is the lowest price for the Vista version.

HP 2133 Mini-Note PC

Attractive design. Fantastic performance. The HP 2133 Mini-Note gives you the portability you require from a web book whilst still retaining the features you require from your standard Notebook.

Design

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.

Features

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 all the benefits of Microsoft Vista Business. With its powerful new security features, you can better protect the key information that your business depends on and that your customers trust you to keep confidential.

Performance

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.

I have Vista on mine and there's no problems. I thought all of the Vista-hating was old hat by now. Oh well...

[FONT="Verdana"]Plus if I remember correctly, this should come bundled with a Windows XP Professional downgrade CD as well...not bad if the buyer doesn't already have a Windows XP license for installing on it (would need to be confirmed though with the reseller before purchasing).

Cheers, Scotty Boy! :thumbsup:[/FONT]

[FONT="Verdana"]Cheers for that mate - at least this is another option for people to consider for going down the netbook route.

How does this compare to the NC10?
#7
I wouldn't call it vista hating per-se but just that vista is more resource hungry (even when patched up) than XP which these HP machines really suit.

And granted I don't own one but whilst I was evaluating this and the aspire one, a few reviews commented on the vista installation rather than using XP like other netbook mfrs have.

Personally I'd go with the ebuyer one and put Win7 on it

It does not as far as the processor is concerned (NC10 much better). The NC10 is being replaced by the NC20 with the next generation Intel Alpha processor (I think its pre order at the moment) so expect to see some good deals on the NC10 soon.

Thats bogus info dude, It's not being replaced by the NC20 at all, the NC20 is aimed at a different end of the market.
Where did you see it was going to have an Intel processor? I's going to be powered by a 1.3 Via Nano processor. Don't hold you breath for that many deals on the king of the netbook just yet as the 12.1" screened NC20 isn't a netbook.

Oh the hatred is alive and well, only now it is a lot less justifiable, so they usually don't try and just churn up a lot of stuff they read about a long time back... I agree Vista is spot on now, I am running it on 3 machines at home and XP on one laptop, but I might be tempted to just put XP on one of these, configure it, cut down some of the "fat" then save a disk image, then try the same things with Vista to see how I got on best with both versions!

Just ghosted 50 of these. Just for anyone wanting to know, set the SATA mode to compatability, use ndis from broadcom website, read the compatability notes to edit the protocol.ini file on your ghost boot disks.
PM me for any more info, as it took me a while to figiure out why these wouldn't ghost.

PS: HP's Tech Support advised me 'off the record' to change the fan mode in the BIOS as these 'generate loads of heat' as he put it...............change the fan mode to always on, as I think its off by default when on battery mode.

I'm interested in one of these mini-laptops... but the more I read, the more baffled I am! Think I'll steer clear!

It's still justified, little has changed from the original release apart from the fact that PC's are generally faster and come with more memory. If it wasn't so bad Microsoft wouldn't have developed Windows 7 as quickly as they have., Vista is the 32 bit Windows ME.

So are you suggesting that windows ME was not 32 bit?

Hmmm, how does the 1.2 GHz C7-M ULV processor compare to the usual Intel 1.6 Ghz atom cpu?
#19
good price and vista will be fine on this machine.

personally i would pay a bit more and go for this one if you can afford it.

I agree, nothing wrong with Vista... there will always be some folk that just like to complain about Vista for the sake of it, but with a good spec machine Vista is just fine :thumbsup:

thats eactly the point though
why do you need a good machine just to run a bloated OS?
we purchased a laptop for my dads 50th with vista on it and could not believe how badly it performed (unfortunately there was no xp downgrade option)
after sticking another gig of ram its absolutely fine and imho thats disgraceful

/rant over
#24
yeah vista is disappointing. when windows 7 finally comes out it'll be a different story though :)

That's right you can if you already have a spare unused copy of Windows XP and a license key.
