Following on from this morning’s HP announcement of new HP Mini netbooks for the US market, we now have details of the UK SKU. The HP Compaq Mini 110c (effectively the same as the US Mini 110) will launch in the UK in August with a suggested retail price starting at £279.
The features are very similar to the HP Mini 110 and, importantly, the 110c will also come with the optional video accelerator found in the Mini 110. The swirl-lid design that adorns the US Mini 110 and 1101 is not present here. Instead it has a high-gloss ‘infinity’ imprint finish.
The 110c will have a 10.1-inch BrightView display and a 92 percent sized keyboard. It will come powered by a 1.66GHz N280 Atom CPU and Intel 950 graphics. Other features include a 160GB hard-disk drive, three USB ports, a 5-in-1 card reader, webcam, mic and optional 3G. The Compaq 110c will weigh 1.17kg with the 3-cell battery and is 33mm (1.3-inches) thick. This will come with Windows XP, so you won’t get the Linux option like you do with the Mini 110 Mi.
