We can now confirm that there is an option on the HP site for the high resolution (1366 x 768) display for the HP Mini 2140. Two dates were bandied around for when we might expect the high resolution option for the HP Mini 2140. The original date of April 6 has turned out to be correct after a no-show on April Fools. As the rumour suggested the upgrade fee is only $25 which is great value and cheaper than the $35 that Dell is charging for upgrading its Dell Mini 10 to a similar resolution display.
The estimated ship date is 22 April so you may be waiting a few weeks, but for such little outlay, is definitely worth it. I have reservations about the text maybe being too small to read on a 10-inch display, but in saying that, I have been able to read the screen on a Vaio P without too many problems. We would love to know what people’s thoughts are when they start to receive these.
