In the world of netbooks their aren’t too many which can be called a “Business netbook”, their is where the HP Mini 2140 comes in. It’s easy to find a number of colorful, and cute netbooks, but there are less that you might call smart or business like.
The HP Mini 2140 is aimed squarely at the business market, or anyone who wants a smart / classy looking netbook. In my opinion the Samsung NC10 looks very smart also, but does not have an aluminum finish like the Mini 2140.
Feature wise the HP Mini 2140 is powered by the Intel Atom N270 processor with upto 2GB of DDR2 RAM, a 160 GB 7200 rpm SATA / 80GB SSD HD and a choice of two 10.1-inch HP Illumi-Lite LED SD / HD LCD widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio LCD screens, with 1024 x 576 SD or 1366 x768 pixel resolutions.
Unlike most other netbooks the HP 2140 features a full ExpressCard / 54 slot, which is great to see, other connections include VGA, 2x USB 2.0, mic, headphones and Ethernet ports. 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.0 are also featured along with a choice of operating systems, Windows Vista, Windows XP and SUSE Linux Enterprise.
ReviewQuest have gathered a number of reviews, giving the HP Mini 2140 a 4.5 out of 5 rating, and said, the HP Mini 2140 rises above the majority of the netbook competition by incorporating a well-designed keyboard, a durable design, and more than seven hours of battery life. The HP 2140 manages to stand out, it has a winning design and feature set, yet it doesn’t command a price premium. The Mini 2140 the Netbook to beat.
