HP Mini 2140

PC Magazine
26 February 2010
  • Conclusion: The HP Mini 2140 offers a larger screen and more advanced parts than its HP 2133 Mini-Note predecessor, while keeping the sexy design intact. But it's pricier than other netbooks—for now.
  • Pros: Edge-to-edge glass screen. Option for highest resolution on a 10-inch widescreen. Big battery option. Very good battery life from the three-cell battery. 92 percent keyboard. ExpressCard slot.
  • Cons: Mouse buttons are adjacent to the touchpad.

HP Mini 2140

  • 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.

HP Mini 2140 Review

HardwareCentral

  • 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.

HP Mini 2140 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
6 January 2009
  • Summary: The $529 HP Mini 2140 (starting at $499) rises above the majority of the netbook competition by incorporating a well-designed keyboard, a durable design, and more than seven hours of battery life. Some may prefer the $499 Samsung NC10 (also a LAPTOP Editors' Choice winner). It's $30 less than the similarly configured HP Mini 2140, and its six-cell battery doesn't bulge from the bottom of the chassis like the Mini 2140.

HP's Mini 2140 is a netbook that's fast and feature-rich.

Good Gear Guide.au
25 April 2010
  • Summary: If you need a netbook that's almost as fully featured as a regular notebook, the HP Mini 2140 is hard to ignore. It's aimed at business users, but at $1099 it's the perfect ultraportable netbook for anyone who wants faster networking features, a faster hard drive and more RAM than a typical netbook. We just wish its touchpad was better.
  • Pros: 5400rpm hard drive, 2GB RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, small
  • Cons: Uncomfortable touchpad, status LEDs are too bright, vertical viewing angles aren't wide enough
