Looks like all you Linux-loving Brits might be out of luck. Apparently, HP’s UK folks have decided not to make the Mini 1000 Mi Edition or a Linux based 2140 Mini-Note available in the UK.
I’ll try to dig up more on this later today. Until then, head over to RegHardware.co.uk.
Update: I asked HP about this today and they said it is something they are investigating, but couldn’t comment further.
