The 5102 comes with either a 1.66GHz N450 or 1.83GHz N470 Pineview Atom. Up to 2GB RAM is included and you also get a fast 7200RPM HDD (160/250/320GB) or SSD (80/128GB), Connectivity is taken care of by Wi-Fi (b/g/n) and Bluetooth.

The display is available in both WSVGA (1024 x 600) and WXGA (1366 x 768) resolutions, a number of operating systems are supported including Windows 7, XP, FreeDOS and SUSE Linux. There’s even an option for a capacitive multi-touch touchscreen and the obligatory battery choices. The 4-cell battery should get you 4.5 hours, whilst the 6-cell is good for 10 hours.

Laptop Mag already has a review up of the Mini 5102 and it’s suffice to say they liked it, awarding it an Editors Choice award. They managed to get 10 hours out of the 6-cell battery and praised the spill-resistant keyboard, security software, instant-on web browsing and loud speakers. The only negatives were a small touchpad and premium price point (prices start at $399). You can check ou a hands-on video from Engadget below.
