HP Refreshes Mini Netbook Range

After the Envy and the Pavilion range, HP has announced that it is adding two new designs to its popular Mini 210 range with a pair of models aimed at fashion aficionados.

Preppy pink and white crystal use HP's Imprint 3-D, which it claims is the industry's first 3-D PC surface technology, to create an illusion of depth. Apart from this, the new Mini 210 stick to the same specifications as their siblings.

They come with the new Intel Atom N450 "Pineview" processor that runs at 1.66Ghz, 1GB RAM, a 160GB hard disk drive, WiFi, a 10.1-inch LED display, three USB ports, Webcam and VGA port, a chassis that's only 22mm thick and a weight or around 1.1Kg.

HP has also thrown in some nifty features like the HP Quickweb which allows users to access the web in seconds without having to boot up their netbooks, the Quicksync which helps syncing data between computers and the HP Cloud Drive, a 2GB online storage space.

The Mini 110 has had a minor change and now offers a six-cell battery that boost battery life to an impressive eight hours while keeping the rest of the configuration intact.

The new models will be available in the US from the 15th of June with SRPs starting at $280 and $355 respectively. Release dates and prices for the UK have yet to be confirmed.
