The 8.9" Mini Note 2133 from HP is a powerful laptop considering its size, weighing just 1.27Kg it is extremely portable, not only that is has a substantial 120GB Hard Drive.

Know its slightly cheaper in other places, but you can go and collect today in most areas.

Originally £342.33 if you believe the hype.

I've looked at this in two different branches, in both it was the only mini which was locked so you couldn't try it out, even the salesman didn't have the password to unlock it. This made me a bit suspicious so I looked it up on the net, and it didn't get rave reviews. I'm still slightly tempted by it though, if I could have a play with it first

If you prefer online buying I think you can still get this from Dixons and Cdiscount cheaper (about £185 and £189 excluding cashback - lower with cashback). (I think PC World also has it for £199)

I've seriously been thinking about buying this or the Acer aspire one. Generally, the reviews say it is a good well made machine, built to last. Downsides are that the processor is slower than its competitors, base gets a bit hot and battery life is 1-2 hours.....

[url]www.hp2133guide.com[/url] has lots more info - and plenty of video reviews on you tube

Seriously underpowered, which is such a shame as it is otherwise an excellent netbook. Solidly built, great little screen, good keyboard etc.

For browsing and WP it is fine, just don't expect good video performance.

Cheaper at Dixons if still available

Usually the password is a number related to the store - on the Linux based 2133 they password must contain letters and no-one ever seems to know it - At the PCW i work at no-one knows the password for the HP either...

I have XP on mine and bearing in mind it supports much higher video resolutions than the crop of Atom based netbook (e.g NC10) It plays Youtube, BBC iplayer and Divx movies at the NC10 max resolution smoothly. Also the Sound from the HP's speaker is much louder and clearer than the NC10. My friend has the NC10 and we spent some time running the same Apps, MP3, movies and making comparision. The conclusion is the HP is good for multimedia, where as the NC10 is better for work & mobility, e.g larger screen and 7 hour battery.

The VIA processor is not really an issue, unless you want to run demanding app

Thanks - Thats just the kind of feedback I was looking for. I'm tempted by the HP over the Acer because I think its built to last and take a few knocks.....

The build quality on these is great. The downside is the processor. We were trying to use them for Video Calling (H.323 based) and it just couldn't cope. Shame really. We now use the Dell Mini 9

I was looking at the mini 9 or 10, whats your battery life like??

My feedback on it - the keyboard is alot nicer the AAO to type on (and has bigger keys which is better for my fat hands) but the user interface (Ubuntu iirc) isnt as friendly as Linpus. That said its a great machine.

Oh and fwiw the password in our store is *whispers* "currys". Just don't tell anyone.
