Line Between Netbook and Notebook Gets Blurred Even More with HP Mini 5101

HP Mini 5101 Netbook

Sleeker and much more refined than its predecessors, the HP Mini 5101 is probably one of the best netbooks to hit the market. The 95-percent chiclet keyboard is really got us excited but there’s much more to it on the inside. The 7200RPM hard drive is standard, as it is with most laptops, blurring the line between netbooks and real laptops even more. There’s also an accelerometer in it for sudden motion protection. It’s still got an Atom processor and is displayed with Vista, but we’re sure that won’t stay for long with anyone.

“An optional, integrated Gobi-powered HP Mobile Broadband module allows users to conveniently access the Internet, corporate intranet, email and other critical information around the world. Other wireless technologies include integrated Wi-Fi Certified WLAN and optional Bluetooth 2.0. An integrated 2-megapixel webcam allows for easy still-image capture, web-conferencing or video-enhanced instant messaging with no additional hardware.” Also, HP’s QuickSync software will be available for downloan in September, giving users the ability to quickly synchronize the HP Mini with notebooks or desktops so users can avoid maintaining multiple documents, media files and email. This information can also be synced to portable storage devices.

All-in-all, the 5101 will go on sale next month for $449. Hit the jump for images and the press release.

Is an onboard optical drive-packed netbook still a netbook?


I completely understand the evolution of the netbook but there’s a reason it’s called a netbook. Mouse Computer is a Japanese PC firm and they’ve unveiled their newest netbook – the LB-F1500W. It’s got all the goodies that you can expect like a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 160GB hard disk, 1GB RAM, 10.2-inch (1,024×600) display, and Windows XP Home Edition. But wait, there’s more, my friends. It’s also got a built-in optical drive.
