HP is one of the first netbook makers promising to deliver netbooks with Intel’s recently unveiled (although long suspected) Atom N470 processor. The new CPU clocks in at 1.83GHz, which is a little faster than the 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 found in most of the netbooks released over the past few months.

Register Hardware reports that the HP Mini 5102 and 2102 will be among the first netbooks available with the Atom N470 option. Both of these models are handled by HP’s business division, and they tend to have higher price tags and more options than HP’s consumer oriented netbooks such as the Mini 210.

No word on when the N470 option will be available or how much it will cost to configure a netbook with the faster CPU.
