New HP Netbook Mini 1000 Peeks Out

Just as we suspected when we posted the price drop on the HP 2133 Mini-Note at Amazon, there would soon be news of a new HP Netbook. And, wouldn’t you know it, there is.

Vivek at the Technicist caught site of the HP Mini 1000 on HP’s shopping site.

All the data and specs aren’t known yet, but we do know that we are looking at weight under 2.25lbs and less than one inch of thickness. We’re also looking at a starting price of $399. (The HP 2133 Mini-Note at Amazon is now on sale at $299.) Tough to tell from the pictures, but I think we’re looking at a black plastic case design instead of the brushed aluminum, and that holds a 10 inch screen.

No word on what the chipset is, but I”m guessing we’ll see HP adopt the Intel Atom. Kevin Tofel points out that the screen resolution could be 1280×768, which would be different from what we’ve seen before.

Vivec also points out or ahead to a Laptop Magazine video of the HP 1000 that won’t be available for viewing until Wednesday, October 29.

    It looks really slick. If the decide to stay with the high resolution screen this new mininote would be a real welcome break from the standard netbook 1024×600 resolution. I’m writing this from my MSI Wind and even though 1024×600 isn’t terrible it’s definitely a little claustrophobic. The internet’s grown larger than 600 vertical pixels.

    It’ll be really interesting to see this come along.

    600 vertical pixels has been the only real reason I haven’t pulled the trigger to date. Even 1024×768 is difficult to swallow. Too many complications to go less. Give me 768 or more and keep the price to about $500 for some decent hard drive space and a gig of RAM and I’m buying.

    Just wonder, why this is not in the “recent articles”…? : )

    articles are either in the featured list or in the recent – they don’t appear in both places. I am examining some options for articles to appear both places.
