HP launches Mini 1104 netbook for business, education
HP has updated its business-friendly netbook line with the HP Mini 1104. It’s a 10 inch netbook aimed at business and education. The new model looks a lot like the last few business netbooks from the company, but the Mini 1104 sports a shiny new 1.6 GHz Intel Atom N2600 dual core processor.
The mini-laptop supports up to 2GB of memory, up to 320GB of hard drive space, and features a 1024 x 600 pixel display, 3 USB 2.0 ports, a VGA port, headset jack, SD card slot, and Ethernet jack.
It’s available with FreeDOS, Windows 7 Starter, Home Premium, or Professional. The HP Mini 1104 measures 10.6″ x 7.5″ x 0.9″ and weighs about 2.78 pounds. It’s avaialble with a 28Whr 3-cell battery or a 55Whr 6-cell battery. HP says the larger battery should provide up to 9 hours of run time.
For the most part, HP’s business netbooks look a lot like the company’s consumer netbooks, but the Mijni 1104 is available with security features including a Trusted Platform Module 1.2 embedded security chip.
The netbook has a starting price of $399. The HP Mini 110 and Mini 210 consumer netbooks have starting prices of under $300, but neither model is available with an Intel Atom Cedar Trail processor yet.
