HP Offers Up a 1.83GHz Atom Upgrade for HP Mini 5102
This was promised by HP during the CES 2010 event earlier this year, so it’s not really surprising to know that you can now have the HP Mini 5102 with the option to upgrade its Intel Atom N450 CPU to the recently released Intel Atom N470 1.83GHz CPU. The good news is that the upgrade will only cost you $25.
Unfortunately, this deal is applicable only for the regular-priced HP Mini 5102 which is tagged at around $518 price point. So if you add the $25, you’ll end up buying an HP Mini 5102 netbook with such powerful processor for $543.
Compare that to buying the HP Mini 5102 via HP’s “Smart Buy” option wherein you only need to pay around $399 with specs such as 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 CPU, 10.1-inch display, Windows 7 Starter Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4-cell batter and 160GB of HDD.
But then, the HP Mini 5102 with Intel Atom N470 processor also boasts of Broadcomm HD card, 1366×768 matte multitouch display and SSD.
