HP Mini 2140 photo comparison against HP Mini 1000
We’ve seen the HP Mini 2140 compared to it’s little brother, the HP Mini 2133 and we’ve also had a look at the insides of the 2140 and now, thanks to Brad at Liliputing, we have some shots of the 2140 with HP’s other 10 inch netbook, the HP Mini 1000.
Both the 2133 and 2140 share the aluminium finish, giving the netbook a professional look, as well as providing an excellent keyboard, which is very easy to use with it’s wide keys. Specifications wise though, the 2140 shares the features found on the 1000, including an Intel Atom N270 processor, giving the 2140 more power than the 2133.
The HP Mini 2140 is described as being the “business class” version of the Mini 1000, owing to it’s looks, unparalleled build quality and fantastic keyboard. The 2140 takes portability to a new level with Drive Guard technology, meaning if you drop it while travelling, the hard drive will be shut down, reducing the risk level of lost data. While portability is a high priority of the 2140, with it’s glossy screen, the netbook is hard to use outside and suited more to indoor use.
Other differences in the netbooks include a full sized VGA port on the 2140, as well as the Mini 2140 being slightly heavier and thicker. Unfortunately the number of USB ports on the netbook hasn’t been increased and remains at 2.
