VIA has released updted drivers for the CN896 chipset and Chrome9 integrated graphics. There are new drivers for both Windows XP and Windows Vista. HP 2133 Guide decided to see how the updated drivers affected performance on the HP Mini-Note.

You can read the full writeup at HP 2133 Guide and find download links. But in a nutshell, video playback is significantly better once you update to Vista SP1 or Windows XP SP3 and apply the updates. So if you’ve got Windows on your Mini-Note, and any interest in watching video from sites like YouTube and Hulu, you should probably update your system.

    1. I’m currently running Ubuntu on my mini-note. I might try reloading Windows
      later this week and taking these updates for a spin.
