The HP Mini 1103 is the newest business netbook from HP. It’s also the cheapest, starting at just $299. While the netbook features the same basic design as the HP Mini 210, I got a chance to check one out in person last night, and it turns out there are actually a handful of minor differences between the Mini 210 and Mini 1103:

  • The Mini 1103 is only available in solid black.
  • The Mini 1103 has a glossy lid, while the Mini 210 lid is matte.
  • While the Mini 210 has a touchpad with integrated left and right buttons, the Mini 1103 has a single bar below the touchpad which you can tap to register left and right clicks.

Other than that, the netbooks are much the same. They feature similar island-style keyboards and rear panels which can be removed to upgrade the RAM, hard drive, or other components without a screwdriver. Both netbooks can open to a 180 degree angle, due to the way the battery and hinge have been designed.

The HP Mini 1103 should be available for purchase soon.
