The HP Mini 2140 may look an awful lot like the HP 2133 Mini-Note. But it’s not quite identical. First, the newer computer replaces the VIA C7-M processor with the zippier Intel Atom N270 and offers an optional 10 inch display. But you already knew that. What you might now have known is that HP moved around a few vents, and according to HP 2133 Guide, the company may also have changed a few other bits of hardware.
The folks at HP 2133 Guide recently got an HP 2140 and stuck it next to the earlier model for a few photos. It appears the new model has quieter speakers and a brighter screen. But for the most part, it looks like HP’s first netbook and features many interchangeable parts. For instance, you can easily remove the battery from one computer and slap it into the other. I’d imagine the same goes for power supplies, but I could be wrong.
