The business-targeted HP Mini 5101 netbook became available in the US last week. However at the time only the Windows XP model was available, it now appears that a SUSE Linux option is also available along with upgrade options for a high-resolution (1366 x 768) display and 6-cell battery.
Both 6-cell battery and HD display options cost a reasonable $25 each to upgrade. Other upgrade options include 2GB RAM for $25 (not included for the XP Home SKU), 3G modem for $125 and a variety of HDD and SDD storage options. A Draft-N Wi-Fi module is also available for $20. These customisation options are available right now.
