Psilan:
robbyp:Yes I had seen that but it doesn't appear to have the specs.  If this model number was created exclusively for HN, then HP would add it as a model in their support section. I just haven't seen that particular model 1111TU advertised or mentioned anywhere else anywhere on the internet, which is strange, thats why I think it may have been a model created for HN, just as these Asus netbooks which are being custom built, will also probably have their own unique model number.


Not going to have a huge hunt since i'm supposed to be working....

But that matches the sticker.


Thanks for the link, that is them.

Beat me to the punch on that one. I had the following link:

with price tag they're selling for in the US.

is by no means a unique model to HN, 1 min of googling shows the 110-1111TU available at many places worldwide.

Most of the links I have seen are to NZ auctions, and there are links to some asian websites including auctions, so it looks like it was a model that wide released around asia. Someone earlier said it may have been a rebadged 1006TU, but looking at the specs now on the HP website they are quite different.

yeah, hence not being just an HN model. often models will be geographically released, but its definitely not a Harvey Norman only model.

Sorry which specs differ between the 1006tu and the 1111tu? someone mentioned that the HDD speed was different but according to the HP site it is infact the same,

It doesn't seem to have a VGA output mentioned in the specs. Also it says it comes with a DVD drive. Maybe the specs are wrong. Also on the Noelleemings website is says the 1006 harddrive is a 4200 speed.

All the 110's have VGA out and I think the DVD drive is an optional external extra as no netbook is big enough to fit a DVD drive.

This whole discussion on the HP models is a bit pointless as we've already been told that it's an ASUS that is on it's way.

Been called twice by the Propeitor of the Lower Hutt branch over the last two days asking me to call him. For one reason or another, I only managed to call this morning.

He told me that he had managed to secure me a HP Mini from another branch. He said that someone had backordered three before Christmas and then cancelled once they saw the sale price. So, in theory another two people should be getting a call saying they have managed to get hold of a HP Mini. The likely people to get called are probably those that have the HP Mini listed on their receipt and who had contacted Anna Johnson or other senior staff at HN.

I'm to be contacted when it arrives in. Since the ASUS build was going to be the same spec, I suppose I'm not missing out, and the sale price of $288 was good to start with, so can't really complain.

UPDATE: Further to my comment above about the other two HP Minis, I've been told that these had already been allocated to others prior to me receiving my news. Sorry if this got anyone elses hopes up.

c71931f: Just recieved this (about the raincheck laptop/notebook) This is indicative spec only no model no. as yet. ASUS Intel Atom 1gb Ram 160 GB Hard Drive and 10.1 inch screen ? black in colour. 3 minutes ago

It's been the same "indicative" specs for 3 weeks!  They're just the basic specs of the HP Mini which we've all known about since day 1. I find it hard to believe they aren't able to quote an ASUS model number by now. It's ridiculous.

Agreed.Someone just isn't telling everyone else at H.N maybe?
And it could be only a week when the netbook/laptop's are ready to be sold etc to the people with rainchecks..so i'm surprised no-one's been told a model number yet
As i was told somewhere between the 21'st and the end of the monthFoot in mouth


Agreed, I rang the Lower Hutt branch and was told they will ring me once they have more info re the model number. Yeah its very frustrating...

Yeah it doesn't make any sense to me that they're not giving us the model number.

I mean, if it's good (i.e. 1005), people will be happy.

If it's not good (i.e. 1000), then most people will probably still take them, and if they don't, then HN can just re-sell them again, probably for considerably more than $288 and more than their costs.

So, really, it's a "win-win" for HN to give us more information!
