Excerpt: Jeg er så heldig, at have været en af de første til at købe HP Mini 2140s netbooks. Mine blev sendt til mig i februar 2009. Som den laptop fanatiker, at jeg var det første netbook, jeg nogensinde har ejet, men den femte bærbare jeg har haft i de sidste seks år. Med indførelsen af Tablet PC til databehandling verden er Tablet PC helt berømt blandt forskellige afsnit af samfundet.
Conclusion: HP actually did everything right with the current Mini 2140. The netbook was equipped with a massive aluminium chassis , which helps the device reaching an excellent stability , and also provides a great feel. Together with the felicituous design (aside from minor flaws in the built) , one can hardly say anything against the case.
Pros: Attractive case, Robust aluminium chassis, Gigabit LAN, BT 2.0 available, ExpressCard 54 slot, Pleasant keyboard, Bright LED display, Low noise emission, Can reach good battery life, The design. The aluminium chassis. Moreover: The display's edge-to-edge design, as long as it is switched off.
Cons: Minor flaws in build quality, No UMTS version available, Strongly reflecting display, Only 576 pixel vertically, An integrated UMTS module and an option for a matt display, if the HP Mini 2140 is indeed considered to be a netbook for the business segment.
Conclusion: Netbooks aren't the bastion of quality and high end features. Sony's Vaio P caters to those who want little compromise in a tiny package, but at a higher price ($899 to $1,199). The HP Mini 2140 sits in between: it's closer to budget netbooks in size and price but adds key features like an aluminum casing for rigidity and good looks, WiFi draft N for faster wireless, Bluetooth (very handy if you wish to use your mobile phone as a modem for the Mini or just want to use a...
Pros: LED backlit display, metal casing, large keyboard., Excellent keyboard, fast WiFi draft N with good range and throughput, Bluetooth, easy to upgrade memory and hard drive
Cons: A tad heavier than some other netbooks and pricier than some., Pricier than some netbooks, but you do get what you pay for.
Excerpt: The Mini 2140 is clearly tailored to suit the needs of business users. We’ve awarded the Mini 2140 a Notebooks.com Editor’s Choice award for its outstanding build quality, customization options and long battery life. In a sea of netbooks, the Mini 2140 stands out as the only real business machine. I used an HP Mini 2140 for about two months and was extremely impressed with it.
Conclusion: The HP Mini 2140 is a classy, durable, adaptable machine with much to offer professionals who want to save some cash without compromising performance. The keyboard is great for producing documents, and the long-lasting/quick-charging battery means this netbook is ready to go whenever you are. Only one possible deal breaker exists, and that’s the touchpad.
Pros: Brushed metal exterior, durable design, Spacious keyboard, Lucid 10.2-inch scratch-resistant screen with acceptable viewing angles, 1366 x 786 resolution option, 16:9 aspect ratio great for watching movies, Great selection of ports, Responsive, energy efficient performance, SSD option, Long-lasting battery, Doesn’t overheat
Cons: Low 1024 x 576 resolution is standard, Small touchpad with vertical mouse buttons, 16:9 aspect ratio not the best for Web pages, Glare on glossy screen, Pricier than average
Conclusion: It's nice design touches like the screen cover and keyboard, as well as hardware advantages like the ExpressCard slot and Bluetooth, that you must keep in mind when considering the HP's $449 price: It's about a hundred bucks more than you'll pay for an otherwise comparably spec'd (1.6GHz Atom, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, 10.1-inch screen) rival from Acer, MSI, or another manufacturer at your local superstore. The Mini 2140 is one of the nicest netbooks we've seen.
Summary: The HP Mini 2140 certainly isn’t the cheapest netbook around. But you get what you pay for.
Sure, the processor isn’t any faster than the CPUs in lower priced netbooks like the HP Mini 1000. And it’s not the thinnest and lightest mini-laptop available. But for a reasonable amount of extra cash you get a sturdier case, an accelerometer, a spill resistant keyboard with DuraKey finish, an ExpressCard slot, and a decent if not spectacular 3 cell battery.
Summary: HP has assembled a compelling netbook package, but in the US at least, the HP Mini 2140 in its premium configuration bears a price tag that approaches what you'd expect to find on a good all-purpose machine.
