HP pretty much retired the HP Mini 110 netbook earlier this year after introducing the HP Mini 210. The new model has a streamlined case design with a 6-cell battery that sits flush with the base of the laptop and an Intel Atom Pine Trail processor, while the HP Mini 110 had a bulky battery and a first generation Atom CPU. But if you look at the HP web site today, you’ll notice the HP Mini 110 is back — even though it seems to look a lot more like the 210 series than the original HP Mini 110.
The new HP Mini 110 has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel matte display and either a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 or 1.83GHz Intel Atom N475 single core processor. The laptop ships with 1GB of DDR2 memory and either a 160GB or 250GB hard drive. 802.11b/g/n WiFi comes standard, while Bluetooth and 3G options are available. You can choose between Windows XP Home or Windows 7 Starter. And a 6 cell battery comes standard.
Prices for the new model start at $280. Interestingly, the only versions of the HP Mini 210 left on the HP shopping web site are the HP Mini 210 HD version (with a high resolution display) and the HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition, with a designer case.
