As expected, HP is now offering customers the option of configuring the HP Mini 5102 business netbook with a 1.83GHz Intel Atom processor. The processor upgrade is only $25, but there’s a slight catch — it’s not available on any of HP’s “Smart Buy” configurations. And that means you’ll end up paying at least $543 to purchase the HP Mini 5102 with an Atom N470 processor if you go through the HP web site. You may be able to negotiate a better deal if you’re making a bulk purchase for your business or school.

The starting price for the “Smart Buy” configurations is $399. For that price, you get a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 CPU, 10.1″ 1024 x 600 pixel display, Windows 7 Starter, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, and a 4 cell battery as well as a 160GB 7200RPM hard drive.

  1. Unfortunately I think the 12% for 5102 has expired already so you would be looking at a near $700 configured netbook. I actually just tested a 5102 configured with a touchscreen after they accidentally sent me my canceled order.

    I have to warn others, the touch screen is capacitive but it isn’t a very responsive one. Not nearly as seamless as an iphone in terms of its “feel”. It seams to cut in and out when doing page swipes or scrolling in firefox. I had to really be dead center on links ect. for it to read the input. My experience with the T91MT wasnt like this (however it was a resistive screen)

    Also the fan does run constantly and at pitch that you can hear definitely hear in a quiet room or even with the TV on. For me that is a deal breaker.
