HP may have been a tad late to the netbook market, but the company is serious about grabbing a larger piece of the pie. Today they are expanding their lineup with three new models
that are aesthetically close to the current 10-inch Mini 1000 but bring several new options: The HP Mini 1101 will be available with a user’s choice of XP or Vista, the 110 Mobile Internet (Mi) Edition will sport Linux, and the 110 XP will offer Windows XP and an optional video accelerator from Broadcom which the company claims can handle 1080p video content.
All three models will be powered by either a 1.6GHz or 1.66GHz Intel Atom N270 or N280 processor, sport 10.1-inch screens and 92% full-size keyboards, wireless connectivity and offer a number of built-to-order options – including battery, memory and storage upgrades as well as 3G connectivity on the 1101. This business-centric model is due to ship first, arriving June 1 for a competitive $329, while the 110 Mini XP and Mi versions should appear on June 10 with a “black swirl” design at their respective prices of $329 and $279.
