The HP 2133 is shipping and while I’m still waiting for a UPS guy to drop mine off, Tom over at CLUMPC got his today. And he promptly did a photo shoot comparing the HP 2133 and his Eee PC 701. You can check out more pictures and his thoughts over at his blog.
But probably the most encouraging piece of news is that the HP 2133 battery can be fully charged in about an hour. This might not sound that exciting to most laptop owners, but if you’ve used an Eee PC you know that the battery wears down quickly and charges slowly, making the computer a little less portable than I’d really like.
The most discouraging piece of news is that HP felt the need to let users who ordered Windows Vista models setup the operating system themselves. Tom says it took him over an hour to copy the system files from one partition to another and install/setup Windows Vista.
