The HP Mini 1000 netbook is about an inch thick and weighs just 2.25 pounds. But in order to achieve that small size, HP made a few compromises. The maximum hard drive capacity is 60GB, because HP wanted to use a relatively inexpensive 1.8 inch hard drive (and anything with more storage would have cost more). And instead of a full sized VGA port, there’s a proprietary display port that requires a VGA adapter.
While the HP Mini 1000 has been on sale for several months, the VGA cable hasn’t been available for purchase… until now.
HP finally has the VGA cable in stock. You can now pick one up for $19.99 from the HP web site, with same day shipping.
Update: As of mid-2011, HP no longer sells this cable. If you’re looking for a VGA adapter for the HP Mini 1000 you may be able to find a new or used adapter on eBay. Or you can search elsewhere for anyone selling the cable. It’s official part number is FY828AA.
