HP can’t sit still in the netbook space and has introduced several new models to add to their extensive line. The HP Mini 110 by Studio Tord Boontje carries the tradition started with the Vivienne Tam models and features a 3D imprint in the lid. The netbook is a Mini 110 with the addition of the imprinted lid and inside casing.

The netbook line for HP also grew in another way with the introduction of the Mini 311. The 311 has a big 11.6-inch screen powered by NVidia ION graphics working with an Atom processor. The display comes in at 1366×766 thus blurring the line between netbook and notebook. It will be available with either Windows XP or Windows 7 (after Oct. 22) in black and white for $399.

The ProBook line was not without new models as the ProBook 5310M joins the business family. This 13.3-inch notebook is a thin addition for the enterprise and is available with a myriad of options. The display clocks in at 1366×768 and HP has partnered with the SplashTop folks to bring QuickLook 3 and QuickWeb to the 5310. QuickLook is the latest version of the program that allows one-button instant access to the user’s Outlook information. This new version is not view-only as in previous versions, Outlook data can be edited while in the QuickLook environment. QuickWeb provides instant access to the web from a powered off state without booting into Windows.

Last but not least the DM3 is now available with a full metal case and lid. This is the next generation of the popular DV2, and has a 13-inch display at 1366×768. The DM3 has a ton of configuration options, including either an Intel or a AMD Neo processor. It can be outfitted with either integrated or dedicated graphics, and starts at $599.

  1. Got my eyes on that 5310. My 5101 is a really quality machine let down only by it’s mostly standard netbook guts and the lack of a lighted keyboard (man those keys are dark). This thing takes care of the former and looks like it’s about 25% thinner than mine with a real processor and video card. Sigh, shoulda waited. Oh well, while I’m waiting on the Atom processor to catch up, I can always wipe off the fingerprints.

  2. Nice update HP, but I want my Pinetrail.
