HP 2133 Mini-Note XP versions announced, but with a catch

As expected, HP have today released their new wave of 2133 Mini-Note ultraportables running Windows XP rather than Vista or SUSE Linux. However, while the leaked pricing may have been correct, what the tips didn't tell us was that HP would be pushing the Vista-downgrade route to XP rather than supplying XP alone.

The reason is quite obvious; XP is loads faster on systems with such limited resources.

The HP Mini 1000 netbook has been officially announced. Borrowing much of the design style of the HP Mini-Note 2133, only with a cheaper plastic casing, four versions of the HP Mini 1000 will be on offer: each will use Intel's 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, a change from the VIA processor used in the 2133.  Available today, the HP Mini 1000 offers Windows XP Home on a choice of 8.9-inch 1024 x 600 or 10.2-inch 1024 x 600 BrightView displays, 512MB or 1GB of DDR2 RAM and either a 60GB 4,200rpm hard-drive or 8/16GB SSD. In mid-December, the Mini 1000 Vivienne Tam Edition will launch, offering the 10.2-inch netbook with a casing matching the designer's Spring 2009 collection.  Then, in January 2009, the HP Mini 1000 with MIE (Mobile Internet Experience), a custom HP Linux build, will launch.
