Had you been perusing HP's wares Sunday, you may have caught a glimpse of the company's upcoming Netbook. On HP's Home & Home Office shopping site Sunday, this image appeared:
The image, since removed from HP's Web site, noted that the HP Mini 1000 will start at $399.99, weigh 2.25 pounds, and measure less than one-inch thick. Given the model number and screen bezel, that's noticeably thinner than that on the 8.9-inch HP 2133 Mini-Note PC, it's a safe bet to say the Mini 1000 will feature a larger 10-inch screen.
No other details are known, so you'll have to wait a bit longer to find out whether the Mini 1000 ditches the 2133's pokey Via C7-M processor for an Intel Atom or a Via Nano CPU.
Need a strong sign that HP has a Netbook refresh in the works? On Amazon.com, the HP 2133 Mini-Note is currently selling for $299--$200 off its original $499 price.
When the HP Mini 1000 is officially released, we expect to have a full review up shortly thereafter.
