HP Mini 1000 At Costco

We are at Costco this morning on our weekly “checking account emptying” trip and I came across the new HP Mini 1000 Netbook for $499. They just got it in last night. The keyboard felt really good, and the webcam worked well with Movie Maker. The Acer Aspire One is right across from it for $349. The keyboard on the Acer felt very cramped. Acer was advertising the Aspire One as a Mobile Internet Device. That’s funny, I didn’t know Acer made MIDs…..

The clerk said the Acer was selling like wildfire and expects the HP to do the same. If I were in the market for a Netbook, I’d like go for HP Mini 1000 due to the keyboard alone and ample wrist pad space alone.

    Well, hopefully they have dropped their price as Staples has the HP mini for 359.99 now. Great looking system. I’m definitely getting one!

    FYI

    Staples has the HP Mini 1010NR which has 512MB of RAM, an 8GB hard drive, an 8.9″ screen, and the on board Intel 950 graphics card supports 64MB of shared memory.

    The Costco Model is the HP Mini 1033CL which has 1GB of RAM, a 60GB hard drive, a 10.2″ screen, and the on board Intel 950 graphics card supports 128MB of shared memory.

    Processor and everything else looks the same. Happy shopping! :)
