The HP Mini 110 XP and 110 Mi (Mobile Internet) 10-inch netbooks are now available directly from HP in the US. The 110 XP will set you back $329.99 for the base configuration, whilst the Linux-based 110Mi will cost you $279.99. The older Mini 1000 netbooks appear to have been phased out in preparation for the new 110 series. However, the funky Vivienne Tam HP Mini 1000 is still being sold for a while anyway.
The Mini 110 series comes with a 10.1-inch (1024 x 576) matte display. It is powered either by a 1.6GHz N270 or 1.66GHz N280 Atom (+$25) CPU. Other features include a 92 percent keyboard, webcam, microphone, VGA port and 5-in-1 card reader. The series will weigh around 1.1kg (2.33lbs) and measure just over 1-inch in thickness.
You will also be able to buy an optional 6-cell battery that will set you back $40. An optional 1366 x 768 HD display will be available in July for around $30. The Mini 110 XP will have an optional Broadcom Crystal HD Enhanced Video Accelerator to allow for 1080p high-definition content. This option is also expected to cost $30 when it is released next month. According to HP’s site, the Mini 110 will begin arriving at customers on or around June 24th.
