HP introduces mini-notebook PC for education market: HP 2133 Mini-Note
HP has announced a full-function, mini-notebook PC priced starting under US$500 in the U.S. The HP 2133 Mini-Note PC is designed for the education market, flexible enough for students to use from the classroom to the family room.

“HP listened to our needs and now is delivering a product designed by education for education,” said Chris Sieger, director of information technology for Alexandria City Public Schools in Virginia. “Teachers and technology are the two most important assets in education. HP’s announcement demonstrates that it understands what schools need from industry.”

At slightly more than two and one-half pounds, the HP Mini is smaller and lighter than many math or science books. It includes a suite of wireless, multimedia and security capabilities.

The HP Mini is packed with a combination of features to boost productivity and improve the overall mobile experience, including an aluminum shell that is sleek and sturdy yet lightweight. It also comes with the HP 3D DriveGuard, which sends a signal to shut down the hard drive upon sudden movement or shock by using a three-axis digital accelerometer chip.

The screen is scratch-resistant display and the hinge bracket is made of magnesium.

The HP 2133 comes with a 8.9-inch WXGA display, full QWERTY keyboard (QWERTY) and touchpad. An optional integrated VGA webcam enables video and still-image capture to allow the addition of photos and video clips to presentations, documents and email.

Users will be able to choose between two battery solutions, one with three-cell for lightest-weight configurations or an optional six-cell for longer battery life.

Wireless technologies such as integrated Wi-Fi wireless LAN and an optional Bluetooth module allows students to access the Internet and connect with Bluetooth devices such as printers, mice and headsets.
