HP Mini 1000 Mi Edition
HP Mini 1000 Mi Edition

HP is now accepting orders fo the HP Mini 1000 Mi Edition netbook running Linux. And the price is about $50 lower than what HP had announced a few months ago. Of course, that makes sense since HP has also dropped the base price of the Windows XP version to $359.

The HP Mini 1000 Mi Edition runs a customized version of Ubuntu Linux designed by HP to be user friendly and multimedia-centric.

The base price will get you a netbook with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom mCPU, an 8.9 inch 1024 x 600 pixel display,. 1GB of RAM, and an 8GB SSD. If you want a higher capacity hard drive or a larger display you’ll have to shell out a few extra bucks. The base model also comes with a 3 cell battery, but to my knowledge HP hasn’t made a 6 cell battery available for the HP Mini 1000 yet.

Update: As some people have pointed out in the comments, the 10.1 inch version of this netbook comes with a 1024 x 576 pixel display while the 8.9 inch version has a 1024 x 600 pixel screen.

  1. My nagging question: will those with XP HP 1000’s be able to load this Ubuntu flavor in lieu of Windows? Or better yet, be small enough to dual boot?

    1. or could you even install windows and save the $50?? that wouldnt be to bad

  2. I might be mistaken but on HP’s configurator it’s got a 1024X576 display much like the Mini 2140. Frankly for me all those little pixels count. I’d much rather pay the extra $30 odd for a better display.
