Our recent posts about HP Mini-note price drops at Amazon are starting to illustrate what we thought last month: HP is either making room for a new netbook or they’re adding another choice to their lineup. Vivek caught sight of the new HP Mini 1000 netbook on HP’s shopping page, but there’s limited information at this point. Here’s what we can see andor guess:

  • Starting price of $399
  • Weight begins at 2.25 pounds, which is a little less than the HP Mini-note
  • Under 1-inch in thickness
  • Like the Acer Aspire One, the left and right mouse betters truly are left and right… of the trackpad.
  • The large screen bezel of the 8.9-inch Mini-note is gone; we’re guessing a 10-inch display

There’s no mention of the remaining specs just yet and the two that are likely of interest the most are the CPU and screen resolution. The Mini-note uses an older VIA C7-M, so the question is: will HP go with VIA for the same-socket Nano CPU or will we see yet another Intel Atom system? Also, the Mini-note differentiates itself from all other netbooks with the generous 1280×768 display resolution. That sounds like a perfect res on a larger 10-inch screen and would continue to set HP’s netbook apart from the crowd.

  1. I’ll probably be seeing one of these puppies at HP in a couple of days. :)

  2. Please tell me they didn’t get rid of the aluminum case and nice metal keypad.

  3. Wow – nice. Too bad I bought a 1000H a week ago, I’d love the probably much better keyboard (if it is like the 2133′s one) and the higher res screen.

    If this uses an Atom or Nano, it might be the new perfect netbook…

  4. Didn’t they say a few months ago that they were making a cheaper, 1024×600 version? I sure hope its WXGA.

  5. @zunq Yeah theres a rumour of an Atom-based HP and one with a lower screen res.

  6. My opinion is that this Netbook from Hp is powered with an Intel Atom!

    As I type this on my 2133, I am looking at the mouse buttons… and they truly are left and right… of the trackpad. Am I missing something?

  9. So its the 2133 with a larger screen, less bezel and Intel Atom processor? Excellent, this was the exact right thing to do HP!

    I do love this netbook over most of the others for having a 1280×768 screen and Expresscard slot! :)

  10. Looks hot! The mouse button location is a deterrent for me though. If someone comes up with an OS X build for this, I might let it slide.
