Summary: Despite an underpowered CPU, the HP 2133 Mini-Note PC offers the best balance of small size, comfort, and functionality we've seen in a mininotebook, making it fast a favorite for on-the-go use.
Excerpt: Denne ultra mobile netbook er udstyret med en imponerende 8,9-tommer skærm, en rummelig og store tastatur, en fuld størrelse bærbar harddisk, og masser af andre imponerende funktioner. Lad os tage et nærmere kig på Mini-note for at finde ud af, om det er en god notebook. HP Mini Note 2133 Specifikationer: Laptops er blevet den foretrukne udstyr til studerende, rejsende og brugere, der ønsker portabilitet og bekvemmelighed.
Excerpt: HP has always been different from its competitors. Whether it's HP's DV style of laptops with glossy finishes or a weird insistence on packing mid-range laptops with more style than performance, the company has never failed to stand apart. This trend continues. With the recent launch of Intel‘s Atom processor and everyone jumping on the bandwagon, HP has chosen to buck this trend and instead equipped its netbook with a VIA C7 CPU.
Conclusion: The HP Mini-Note is not quite an Eee PC killer, but it's a super-sleek ultra-mobile PC that will sell out as quickly as the Eee PC did.
Pros: Apple-like design. Comfortable keyboard. Spacious and sexy screen design. ExpressCard slot for 3G. SD slot. More than one USB port. Wide selection of operating systems. 2GB RAM. Wide choice of mass-storage options. Extended batteries available. Very travel-friendly.
Cons: Runs uncomfortably warm with the 7,200-rpm hard drive. Mouse buttons are awkwardly positioned.
Conclusion: One final point for HP: Put a decent processor in this (anyone for Atom?) – and this will be the best sub-notebook on the planet. End of argument. Oh and if you fancy sending me an XP version feel free – preferably one I can “lose”!
Summary: Rarely does a notebook leave us so ambivalent â€“ there's a truly great product within the HP Mini-Note 2133 waiting to get out, if only the ergonomics of the mouse buttons and the low processor performance could be addressed. Until then, the HP Mini-Note can be recommended only to those who can look past these issues at an otherwise superbly finished portable.
Summary: I'm pretty torn over the Mini-Note. There are a lot of things about this little notebook that really turn me off, including its highly reflective screen coating that all but demands running the display at full brightness, which of course shortens battery life. The trackpad button placement is annoying, and so is the 6-cell battery bulge sticking out the bottom.
Conclusion: So should you buy an HP Mini now, or wait for a probably improved version? That depends. The Eee still has its picture in the dictionary under cute , but the 2133 should be listed under style or glamour . You won't see a more chic handheld this year. Against that, when Asus unveiled the Eee at $400, the conventional notebooks available at that price were easy to shun -- or to rationalize, "Yes, I know I could have more screen, keyboard, speed, and storage, but I'll trade...
Summary: The HP 2133 Mini-Note is one of the most impressive subnotebooks we’ve ever seen. Unfortunately, the amazing design and solid range of features are diminished by a sub-par processor and a price tag that places this notebook dangerously close to far superior 12-inch notebooks such as the HP tx2000. HP managed to create the single most impressive ultraportable notebook on the market … and then decided to put a lackluster processor inside.
Summary: While it's somewhat bigger and pricier than other mini-notebooks, the HP 2133 Mini-Note offers a few features that the others don't, including an adult-size keyboard and a design more suited to business users. Ifall you needis a low-cost laptop that can run Windows, you may want to wait for the 9-inch version of the Eee PC. But if you require more from your mini-notebook and don't mind paying for it, the HP 2133 Mini-Note delivers the goods.
