More HP netbook models leaked

They’re not actually available for purchase yet, but bargain-hunting web site LogicBuy has apparently spilled the beans on a couple of previously unannounced HP mini-laptops. This comes on the heels of HP uploading support documents for the unannounced HP Mini 210.

Here’s what’s new:

  • HP Mini 210HD – This model will have the same basic specs as the Mini 210, including a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 CPU and GMA 3150 graphics. But it will also pack the Broadcom Crystal HD video accelerator for handling HD video with resolutions up to 1080p. LogicBuy says it will retail for about $329.99.
  • Compaq Mini CQ10 – This low-end model will sell for just $259.99. It also has the new 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 CPU, GMA 3150 graphics, and a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display. It comes with a 3 or 6 cell battery, 802.11b/g WiFi, and up to 250GB hard drive (which would seem to imply that Windows 7 Starter is at least an option. No word on Windows XP availability).

LogicBuy also suggests that the base price for the HP Mini 210 will be $279.99.

    Hopefully they have the mind to have 6 cells. They previous netbooks were so sexy but with the crap 3 cells.

    Hopefully too the 6 cell does not stick out like their 110. HP, try tot to be like Dell.

    Now you know why everybody is going for Asus. People want slim and sexy.

    Gotta agree, battery tech seems strangely behind. We can only go so low in power usage before we need higher capacity slim batteries. Does anyone have a list of netbooks/ultraportables that have 6 cells that are flush? Acer and Asus are close, having only a bump from their batteries but what about slimness akin to Macbook Pro's that still deliver on battery life.

    HP DM1 comes to mind.

    Sorry to tell you but the 6 cell does protrude.

    From the DM1? Protrude how exactly? I'm going off of this review: http://netbooked.net/netbook-reviews/review/11….

    You are right. Now, the sexiest netbook is the DM1. I can confirm it is fully flat. Played around with one that day in the store.

    2nd would be the Toshiba T115 and also the Asus UL20.

    Sadly, the Lenovo U150 bulges a bit.

    Other than slimness, netbooks really have not improved in speeds since the N270. We got some bullshit abt the N280, and now, the N450. So what improvement so far since the N270?
