To coincide with the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Hewlett-Packard has updated its mini laptop designed for mobile users with the $499, 1.2kg HP Mini 2140 Notebook PC powered by Intel's Atom processor.
The 2140 Notebook features an all-aluminium case and a 10.1in diagonal scratch-resistant HP Illumi-Lite LED display, available in either standard or high-definition resolutions. The devices comes with a webcam, wi-fi and optional Bluetooth connectivity. HP says the keyboard is 92% the size of a full-size querty keyboard. Users can choose from a range of storage configurations, including a high-capacity 80GB solid-state drive.
It includes HP's 3D DriveGuard technology, which uses a three-axis digital accelerometer chip to send a signal to shut down the hard drive upon sudden movement or shock and HP's Panel Protection System, which uses a scratch-resistant acrylic LCD cover to protect the screen.
