HP has added a new(ish) netbook to its business lineup. The HP Mini 1103 is basically the business version of the HP Mini 110/210 series consumer netbook. It doesn’t have all of the premium features available in the HP Mini 5103 business netbook such as the optional HD display, touchscreen, or optional dual core processor. What the HP Mini 1103 does have is a much lower starting price of $299.
Like other HP business netbooks, the HP Mini 1103 is available with a number of options that aren’t typically available for the company’s consumer oriented machines. For instance, you can configure the HP Mini 1103 with Windows 7 Starter, SUSE Linux 11, or FreeDOS and opt for 1GB to 2GB of DDR3 RAM. It has a 7200RPM hard drive and is available in capacities from 160GB to 320GB.
The rest of the specs are pretty much par for the netbook course, with 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 and 1.83GHz Intel Atom N475 processor options, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, 3 and 6 cell battery options, 3 USB 2.0 ports, a VGA port, and a combination mic/headphone jack.
You can find details specs at HP.com. The HP Mini 1103 will be available for purchase next month.
