HP-2133 Arrived

A couple of months back I had a chance to try the HP Mini-Note when it first came out and it had some really good features and excellent build quality. I tried the Vista one but I new that installing Windows XP would better then Vista.  After searching around I decided to purchase one from Ebay and got one for a good deal, 15% below the usual price and barely used so instead of paying $780 for the Vista model I got it for $680.


  • HP  Via C7
  • 1.6 GHz
  • 8.9 inch
  • Windows Vista Ultimate/XP
  • 2 GB Ram
  • 120 GB HD

The first thing I did was to setup a dual boot since it came with Vista, I decided to keep it for some use but installed Windows XP Pro in another partition and it is by far a lot faster then Vista since I could make a direct comparison between them. It just feels lighter, and the battery lasts about 2 hours and 45 minutes which decent for something this small.
