HP's Mini 2140 netbook gets UK confirmation

HP mini-thumb-200x169.jpgAmongst all the chaos surrounding CES this year, Zara got wind of HP’s plans to expand its UMPC range with the Mini 2140. Details of a UK release date were obscure, so we weren’t entirely sure it’d be heading to our shores, until now. The blogosphere tells us the HP Mini 2140 now has UK price tag – £379, to be exact – so it’ll definitely be heading our way soon. February is what we’re being told.

HP says it’s aimed at the education and business sectors, but I shouldn’t see why anyone not associated with learning and business shouldn’t want it with an equal amount of desire. And why wouldn’t they? With a 10.1-inch, 16:9 display, Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 2GB RAM, the option of a 160GB HDD or 80GB SSD, 92 percent of a regular keyboard and a transport friendly weight of 1.19kg, it’s as good a contender as the rest of them.
