The HP Mini 2140 may look an awful lot like the HP 2133 Mini-Note. But it’s not quite identical. First, the newer computer replaces the VIA C7-M processor with the zippier Intel Atom N270 and offers an optional 10 inch display. But you already knew that. What you might now have known is that HP moved around a few vents, and according to HP 2133 Guide, the company may also have changed a few other bits of hardware.

The folks at HP 2133 Guide recently got an HP 2140 and stuck it next to the earlier model for a few photos. It appears the new model has quieter speakers and a brighter screen. But for the most part, it looks like HP’s first netbook and features many interchangeable parts. For instance, you can easily remove the battery from one computer and slap it into the other. I’d imagine the same goes for power supplies, but I could be wrong.

For more photos, make sure to check out HP 2133 Guide’s full article.

  1. I’ve got a 2133 and 2140 here and there are indeed quite a few changes. The speakers on the 2133 were in the black bezel and were extremely loud for a netbook. The new speakers are cylindrical and placed above the keyboard- just like the Mini 1000.
    The batteries are compatible with each other, as are the power supplies.

  2. As long as the batteries are compatible, I’m content. Now if only there were an easy way to swap out that fershlugginah trackpad/button setup I would be truly happy.

    1. Yup, the batteries are the same and interchangeable. The power supplies are little different though – the 2140’s puts out 0.1 amp more.

  3. I just ordered one from an online retailer. Hopefully receive it the end of this week or early next week.

  4. Check out the under-side photos, the 2140 (on right) seems to
    have the vents first seen on the pre-production prototype of the 2133.
