HP Mini Note 2140 Notebook PC

HP recently announced the HP Mini-Note 2140 which is identical to one of the hottest netbooks around – the HP 2133. Still having the well-designed keyboard and a sleek aluminum case as its predecessor. The only biggest difference between HP-2140 and HP-2133 is that the HP Mini 2140 has a larger 10.1 inch and has 1024 x 576 pixel display, while the 2133 had an 8.9″ high resolution 1280 x 768 pixel screen. Although the HP Mini Note 2140 has bigger screen as i’ve just mentioned, i think you will hate its additional protective layer of glossy plastic over the screen when watching movie in direct sunlight because of its significant reflection.

One additional thing worth mentioning is the HP’s DriveGuard software that prevents data loss when you accidentally drop the laptop because of its built-in accelerometer that automatically shut down the hard drive. Personally, i really love this DriveGuard software because i had already exprienced “data loss” when i accidentally dropped my old laptop before.

Available with a starting price of $449.

  1. I did a lot of research on the netbooks before deciding on the Eee PC 900HA. For the features and price, this looked like the best fit. When I started to use it, I found it was a PERFECT fit for me.
    I was looking for a laptop to surf the internet and do some light computing while sitting on my couch, in front of the fireplace. It had to be small, light weight, last a long time on a charge and not be a lap heater.
    PROS:
    The 900HA is palm size and only weighs a couple of pounds (look up the specs). I almost got the 904HA for the bigger battery, but it is twice as heavy and more than 10% larger and still has the same display size.
    As for battery life, I have not done an actual run test but I forgot and left it on w/ the lid closed (standby) over night and still had 2.5 hours of battery the next morning.
    The screen is bright and clear. I have even watched some movies on it (w/o running out of battery or burning up my lap). This should be great for airplane travel.
    WiFi is good. It easily connected to my network and I end up using Remote Desktop to drive my bigger computer most of the time from the couch – nice.

    CONS:
    This was my Christmas present – the only con I can come up with is that my wife loves it too, so now I have to share it.
