Technology hardware manufacturer Hewlett Packard (HP) has added three new models to its HP-Mini notebook range. The company said that the new models come in a variety of configurations and designs, geared towards customers with mobile computing needs.
The HP Mini 110 XP Edition and the HP Mini 110 Mobile Internet (Mi) Edition were designed for Internet-centric consumers, while the HP Mini 1101 is aimed at small and medium-size businesses and frequent business travelers.
The notebooks come in various colur options, including the proprietary Pink Chic, Black Swirl or White Swirl HP Imprint finishes.
Says Kevin Frost, vice president and general manager, Consumer Notebooks, Personal Systems Group, HP: “With these new HP Minis, we’re enhancing the customer experience by adding compelling features that allow users to interact with their Mini in a fun way. Our broad portfolio of mini companion PCs truly offers customers choices to fit every need and every personality.”
The new Mini models are small enough to slip into most purses, backpacks or briefcases, measuring just over 2.5 centimeters thick.
The machines also come standard with a 10.1-inch diagonal standard or optional high-definition LED widescreen display, a keyboard that is 92 percent the size of a standard notebook PC keyboard, and a built-in webcam and microphone.
Although a fixed release date is not yet known, the company has indicated that the new notebooks will be shipped to Africa later in 2009.
