Amazon is now carrying some preconfigured HP Mini 1000 netbooks. And while the cheapest model you can order directly from HP sells for $360, the cheapest version I could find on Amazon costs $445.

But here’s the thing, the $360 computer that ships from HP has an 8.9 inch display, and an 8GB SSD, and lacks Bluetooth. The $445 model from Amazon has a 10.2 inch display, a 60GB hard drive, and Bluetooth. If you tried to configure a netbook with those specs at HP.com, you’d wind up spending $490.

I don’t know why Amazon doesn’t list any sub-$400 HP Mini 1000 units. But it looks like you might be able to save a few bucks on preconfigured netbooks if you order through Amazon. Or if you’re looking for a bargain (and don’t care that much about CPU performance), you can still pick up an HP 2133 Mini-Note PC with a 1GHz VIA C7-M CPU, 512MB of RAM,. 4GB SSD, and SUSE Linux on Amazon for $445 model from Amazon.
