HP 2133 Mini-Note


HP has always been different from its competitors. Whether it's HP's DV style of laptops with glossy finishes or a weird insistence on packing mid-range laptops with more style than performance, the company has never failed to stand apart. This trend...

The HP 2133 feels like an incomplete, lackadaisically designed product.� Though it has a brilliant body finish and great keyboard, it loses points for its touchpad, its battery life and its absolutely atrocious pricing of Rs 39,999.� At this price...

Nevertheless, if anywhere, you'll find small weaknesses at the lid. The frames around the left and right speakers do not seem to be of high-quality. And the glossy LCD frame is sensitive to unsightly fingerprints when opening or closing the lid

This Mini Notebook is a Real Deal Eee PC Killer


It's been less than a year since Asus first sprinkled its Eee PCs with magical miniaturizing dust, yet these low-cost, diminutive laptops have already taken off

One of the most comfortable keyboards we’veused on any mini-notebook. Sleek and solid build makes other minisseems like flimsy toys. Grown up hard drive means you'll have 120- and160-GBs at your disposal. Beautiful, scratch resistant 8.9-inch screen

Feeble Via processor doesn't do the job — atleast with Vista. Tiny trackpad and awkwardly placed left and rightbuttons makes navigating difficult

HP 2133 Mini-Note (XP)


One of our favorite mini-notebooks receives the Windows XP makeover.

Nearly full-size keyboard ; Sharp display ; Durable design ; Good battery life

Pricey ; Awkwardly placed mouse buttons

Our Mini-Note came with Windows XP Professional installed on a 5,400-rpm 120GB hard drive (which is protected by an accelerometer); you can configure the system with Vista Business, Vista Home Basic, FreeDOS, or the SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10...

HP 2133 Mini-Note PC


The HP Mini-Note is not quite an Eee PC killer, but it's a super-sleek ultra-mobile PC that will sell out as quickly as the Eee PC did.

Apple-like design. Comfortable keyboard. Spacious and sexy screen design. ExpressCard slot for 3G. SD slot. More than one USB port. Wide selection of operating systems. 2GB RAM. Wide choice of mass-storage options. Extended batteries available. Very...

Runs uncomfortably warm with the 7,200-rpm hard drive. Mouse buttons are awkwardly positioned ; Watch the HP 2133 Mini-Note PC video Review

HP 2133 Mini-Note


This mini notebook is pricier and heavier than the competition, but its full-size keyboard and flexible configuration options make it a better all-around investment.

While it's somewhat bigger and pricier than other mini-notebooks, the HP 2133 Mini-Note offers a few features that the others don’t, including an adult-size keyboard and a design more suited to business users. If all you need is a low-cost laptop that...

HP's 2133: A Tiny Laptop an Adult Can Really Use

HP 2133 Mini-Note PC


Editors' note: We have revised the rating of this product to reflect the changing competitive Netbook landscape.

Inexpensive; solid construction; stylish design belies its budget price; nearly full-size keyboard.

Weak performance; unimpressive battery life; tiny touch pad; misses out on new Intel Atom CPUs.

Despite an underpowered CPU, the HP 2133 Mini-Note PC offers the best balance of small size, comfort, and functionality we've seen in a mininotebook, making it fast a favorite for on-the-go use.

HP 2133 Mini-Note Review


Just when you thought you'd never find the perfect small form factor notebook for less than $1,000, HP comes to the table with the all new 2133 Mini-Note. This ultra mobile subnotebook features an impressive 8.9-inch screen, a remarkably large...

The most attractive 8.9-inch notebook we've ever seen ; Excellent build quality ; Great keyboard ; ExpressCard slot offers fantastic expansion possibilities ; Multiple configuration options

Despite the poor processor performance, the HP 2133 Mini-Note is a remarkably solid machine that could be a perfect fit for students, teachers, or mobile business professionals. If HP decides to replace the VIA processors with the new Intel Atom...
