HP Mini Note 2133 cracked open

If you're of a squeamish disposition, look away now.  Over at HP 2133 Guide the temptation to see what's going on under the hood of the well-considered Mini Note budget ultraportable was too strong to resist, and so Josh has taken his screwdrivers to the notebook to get down to bare silicon.  If you've been wondering how HP managed to fit anything up to a 1.6GHz CPU, 2GB of RAM and 160GB hard-drive into something measuring just 10.0 x 6.5 x 1.1-inches, you're in luck.

HP 2133 ultraportable notebook reviewed: Flexible but expensive Eee rival

HP 2133 ultraportable notebook reviewed: Flexible but expensive Eee rival

Multiple reviews are springing up for HP's rather tasty 2133 laptop, with GottaBeMobile, jkOnTheRun, Notebooks.com, TabletPCReview and Laptop Mag all giving their opinion (and, in most cases, a video demo as well) of the 3.2 pound, 10.0 x 6.5 x 1.1 inch ultraportable.  First impressions are generally good, with the higher resolution screen, bigger keyboard and aluminium chassis all scoring points over the 2133's obvious rival, the ASUS Eee.

Windows 7 on Gigabyte M912 touchscreen netbook

Windows 7 on Gigabyte M912 touchscreen netbook

The Windows 7 testing continues, with Gigabyte's M912 convertible touchscreen netbook the latest to have some playtime with Microsoft's new pre-beta OS.  Actual test results are pretty sparse right now, but UMPC Fever have been recording start-up and shut-down times which give a good indication of how usable the OS might be on the tablet.  Booting into Windows 7 on the M912 takes roughly 1 minute 11 seconds, while shutdown is around 32 seconds.

SlashGear Week in Review – July 27th

SlashGear Week in Review – July 27th

It's become somewhat traditional to start the week's review with what's happening in the netbook world, a niche that's arguably the fastest developing right now in consumer tech.  Fujitsu kicked things off with the proclamation that budget ultraportables "don't add up" and that the current race to the bottom line doesn't give manufacturers enough room to make profit; Fujitsu were rumored the week before to be planning a netbook of their own, only with the emphasis on build quality rather than solely the price tag.  Sony also picked up a few netbook-in-progress rumors, tipped for Q4 2008, and HP revealed that they're working on a follow-up to the 2133 Mini-Note that will be less sturdy but also less expensive.

LG, too, are said to have a netbook in the works, with a model tentatively named X110 running Intel's Atom CPU and made for them by MSI.  It's uncertain whether, if this turns out to be true, the X110 would be a rebadge of the MSI Wind or a whole new design.  Finally, ASUS confirmed they wouldn't be letting up the pressure as firm most associated with the segment; there's talk of an "all day" battery and cloud storage option for release later on in 2008.

SlashGear Week in Review – May 11th

This week's highlight has been the SlashGear team knuckling down to cover HTC's London launch of the Touch Diamond smartphone.  Our hands-on video of the Windows Mobile 6.1 device is pulling in some serious views, so if the thought of a 3G iPhone is leaving you cold then you need to be checking out the competition.

Meanwhile, budget ultraportables continued their onslaught, with pre-order pricing for both MSI's Wind and HP's XP version of the 2133 Mini-Note announced.  ASUS hasn't been letting the grass grow under them either, confirming that the Eee PC 900 will hit the US on May 12th.  Slightly bigger, word of Dell's upcoming Inspiron 1435, 1535 and 1735 ranges leaked, bringing with them some of the XPS' specs including optional 3G and Blu-ray.
