The HP Mini 2140 is set to become one of the few netbooks with a screen resolution higher than 1024 x 600. When HP first announced the laptop in January, the company promised that a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display would be an option. But so far only the 10.1 inch, 1024 x 576 pixel screen has been available.

A few weeks ago an HP product manager told me the higher resolution display would be available in early April and that it would only add $25 to the price of the HP Mini 2140. Now Digifitti has uncovered a firmer date: April 6th. I’d take this information with a grain of salt for two reasons. First, the news comes from a sales rep, not HP HQ, and second the article lists the launch date as April 6, 2006. But as someone who’s been guilty of writing a few typos from time to tome, I’m inclined to give Digifitti the benefit of the doubt here.

Anyway, the news does seem to line up with what I’d heard. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see the new screen resolution available as an option on or around the 6th.

  1. May I be the first to say “It’s about freakin’ time!”
    The low resolution screens on all the netbooks sold in the US is getting really old. I’ve been saying for a while now that the first company to produce a reasonable resolution screen netbook will get my money. It looks like HP will be collecting my dollars sometime in April.
    This is really sad, that it’s taken this long to get a higher resolution screen combined with an Atom processor. Really, really sad.

  2. All it needs is ION and I’m sold, though I’d like to see them add a slot-loading DVD drive too. Even as an option. Add those two things and I’m sold.

  3. Awesome screen and chassis.

    All it needs is a decent CPU and chipset, AMD Conesus anyone…………?
