  • Fact: There is no HP Mini 1100 series

    I’ve been exchanging e-mails with HP for the better part of the day and we have the final word on the supposed Mini 1100 series with an ExpressCard slot. It doesn’t exist and it was mistake made by the Web team. This is straight from horse’s mouth, people. Read More

  • HP not shipping high-res display 2140s? [Update]

    Everyone at CG knows how enamored I am with the HP Mini line and everyone at HP knows that I want a 2140 rigged with the Mi OS. Unfortunately, the 2140 is not offered with Mi, which makes me sad. I spoke to Doug about this over CES and wondered what would happen if I just swapped hard drives from an Mi to a 2140. We both concluded that the Mi and 2140 are virtually the same machines with the… Read More

  • HP drops the price of the Mini 1000 to $359

    My favorite netbook of 2008 is now a few bucks cheaper. HP cut the price of the Mini 1000 to $359 over the weekend. It’s certainly not the cheapest netbook on the block, but let’s wait and see what HP does with their MIE version. It was, after all, $20 cheaper than the XP version when it was first announced. There’s also a bump to 1GB of RAM on the XP Mini 1000 on top of… Read More

  • Fashion meets technology: HP Vivienne Tam released

    For those who have been anxiously awaiting the launch of the HP Mini Vivienne Tam we told you about back in October, the “digital clutch” is now available to order over at HP’s online store for $699. It features vibrant peony blooms signifying good fortune and prosperity. A matching silk sleeve is included to secure this stylish fashion accessory. Weighing in at 2.45 lbs… Read More

  • DIY: Install a 3G modem on the HP Mini 1000

    Blah, blah, blah, “BIOS is locked”, blah, blah, blah, “HP is not so nice”, blah, blah, blah, “remember the switch”, blah, blah, blah. Read More

  • HP's Mini 1000 now has 3G option – for a price

    Having an always-available connection seems like a great idea for an ultraportable netbook like the Mini 1000. And now you can have one — unfortunately, the rather hefty $200 premium takes the thing right out of a lot of people’s price ranges. Still, it’s better than just a 3G dongle, the sort of which I have never gotten working properly. You’ll be choosing between… Read More

  • Hands-on with the HP Mini 1000

    I’ve been fawning over this little netbook since last week and I can’t wait to get one, but I’ll have to wait until January for the MIE version. :( Hopefully I’ll get it in time for CES because lugging this 15-inch MacBook Pro is getting old. Spec-wise it isn’t very powerful, but it isn’t meant to be a desktop replacement either. The UI on the MIE version… Read More

  • Six accessories for the new HP Mini 1000 netbook

    What would a netbook be without all sorts of tiny accessories? The HP Mini 1000 will have at least six of them; some available now and some available in January. Apparently available now is an extra three-cell battery, although I couldn’t find it listed on HP’s shopping site, the HP Wireless Laser Mini Mouse ($40), and the HP Bluetooth Pendant Headphones ($99). Pretty… Read More

  • HP breaks the netbook mold with the Mini 1000 and MIE Linux netbook

    Netbooks have been slowing down over the last year and for the most part, each one is about the same thing with a different logo on the lid. HP’s offerings seem refreshing and polished even though they sport the standard netbook specs of 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 8.9-inch or 10.2-inch display, up to 2 GB of RAM, and either a 60GB HDD or 16GB SSD. The solid-state drive can be complimented… Read More
