HP Shows Off 10-inch Netbook. The Next Mini-Note?

As we reported earlier, at a special fashion week presentation tonight, HP unveiled a special edition mini-notebook developed in collaboration with fashion designer Vivanne Tam. The small notebook is what you would expect a celebrity to carry around and is being called a “Digital Clutch” by the company.  While HP did not announce a model name or specs for it, the netbook clearly resembles the Mini-Note 2133, with some major design changes. While HP did not disclose any details, we were able to peek at an open display unit with a 10-inch screen (larger than the original 8.9-inch Mini-Note 2133).  As you can see from the pictures, the LCD panel now fills the bezel, while the speaker sits just below it. The unit on display had the same 92 percent keyboard that we love so much on the original Mini-Note. The display model also had the same touchpad, with mouse buttons buttons placed to the right and the left of the pad. We had limited time to actually hold the machine since HP restricted us from opening it up, but it felt just as light and thin as the 2133. No word on the internal specs and what processor this new netbook might run. HP would not confirm a release date or that this notebook is meant as a direct successor to the Mini-Note 2133, but no matter what it’s called, we’re betting that it will be available in time for the holidays.

    You need to find collaboration to guide some major design changes. The prices will only go up or down. It doesn’t work fashion designer Vivanne Tam.

    I wait in eager anticipation, it looks gorgeous. Lets hope the slow performance and reflective screen of the original has been taken into consideration for this special edition.

    Interesting. I’m not entirely unhappy with the screen-size on mine now but that would be nice. I’m not too excited about the color though, I like mine to be the simple, boring, brushed aluminum.

    BroadbandGirl, looking at the photos the it looks to me like it’s still a glossy screen, you can see the keyboard reflection quite clearly.

    Looks really nice, how about a backlit keyboard HP?

    This is an cool PC. Now I wish they stopped trying to make “Fashion” Pcs and focus on cheap power
    If it’s small… it better be an small thoroughbred rather than the cute paint ponies I keep seeing.

  6. Sachin Says:

    looks great..but the main question is when is it coming to India.

  7. Buffalo Says:

    This is straight eye-candy to my partner. She was hungering after a netbook NOW!!! but her feel on this is that she will wait until it arrives…. soon as possible

    God, it’s ugly. Looks like something a 10$ hooker would wear

    If it uses the VIA Isaiah processor, here is the benchmark:

    As shown, it is better than Intel’s Atom.
