ditches the superior resolution of the Mini-Note (not even an option for the higher end models!)

ditches the high quality alluminum finish of the Mini-Note

poor SSD and HDD options

10.2" model is pretty expensive for a netbook @ $699

horrible split button trackpad - the worst feature and the only major problem with both the HP Mini-Note and Acer Aspire One

Announced in late October 2008, just days after the 2133 Mini-Note had seen major price cuts, a new HP netbook has been announced. Featuring a plastic case and an optionally larger, yet cheaper 10.2" screen - the HP Mini 1000 and MIE Linux are two competitively priced options powered by the Intel Atom, unlike their older Via powered relatives. Featuring the same old 1.6GHz Atom N270, the standard 1024 x 600 resolution, 512 to 2GB of DDR2 RAM and a 8 or 16GB SSD or 60GB HDD, the Mini 1000 and MIE Linux are standard fare for netbooks. Priced at $379-699 the most attractive and repulsive characteristics of the device remain unchanged from the earlier 2133 - the Mini-Note's superior full sized laptop keyboard, and its miniature split-buttoned trackpad. Details are still not entirely confirmed - and thus, features and model specifications listed below are incomplete and likely to change.

Features
  • Intel Atom Processor (1.6GHz, 533MHz FSB)
  • 8.9 - 10.2" LED Backlight LCD Screen 1024x600px resolution
  • LAN, WLAN 802.11 b/g, optional bluetooth
  • XP Home edition or Linux
Models (only the differences are highlighted)
  • HP 1000 MIE Linux - $379, 8.9" screen, linux OS
  • HP 1000 MIE - $399, 8.9" screen, Windows XP Home
  • HP 1000 Mini - $699, 10.2" screen

I'm going to test out that crazy split button mouse on my friend's Acer Aspire One and see how it works. It looks super awkward.

Personally, I don't think anything has yet to beat the original Asus EEE PC. Manufacturers seemed to miss the point of the netbook (including HP with their first gen mini)...however....I am officially impressed by this laptop. Even on paper.

I think i'll recommend this laptop to my parent's for an around-the-house Web box.
