More storage options for HP Mini 1000
The Mini 1000 netbook from HP originally launched with two storage options, 16GB SSD or 60GB hard drive but HP have updated the storage options available for the Mini 1000. It’s now possible to get the HP Mini 1000 with SSD memory of the original 16GB or with 32GB. Where as the hard drive option has only upgraded it’s 60GB hard drive. The 60GB version is no longer available to purchase from HP, but an 80GB hard drive option is.
For most netbooks, 80GB is pretty minimal, but HP use 1.8 inch hard drives instead of the usual 2.5 inch hard drive which makes prices for more higher storage, much more expensive. The speed of the hard drive however remains the same at 4200RPM.
Other customizable options for the HP Mini include a choice between 512MB of RAM or 1GB, 8.9 inch or 10.1 inch display, as well as a choice between a 3 cell battery or a 6 cell. There’s also an option to receive both batteries so you have a backup. Bluetooth is also an added option when purchasing the HP Mini.
