HP Mini 2140 discontinued – new model on the horizon?

June 20, 2009 at 10:55 am

HP Mini 2140The very popular HP Mini 2140, which is targeted for business users, appears to have been discontinued from the HP Store. Apparently the HD model was available to order yesterday for $449 as a smart offer, before disappearing from the site altogether. The only model available to purchase is the HP Mini 1101, which is the business version of HP’s new Mini 110 netbooks.

The Mini 110 ended up replacing the Mini 1000 series of netbooks (which are now discontinued), so it could be conceivable that the Mini 1101 has replaced the Mini 2140. However, the Mini 2140 came with an aluminium shell, rather than the plastics seen in the Mini 1101, so I’d be surprised if there was no kind of refresh due soon. Back in January, it was rumoured that a HP Mini 2150 was due in June with built-in 3G module.

Thanks Steffen!

    Crap. I really liked that model. While you can still find the non-HD model out there in the world, at least for a while, the HD model now seems to have vanished. The x576 screen just isn’t good enough, but I *love* the form factor of this model and the also-discontinued Mini 1000 series. Thin and light goodness. The stupid VGA connector thing wouldn’t have bothered me since I don’t do powerpoint presos.

    I doubt you’ll see a model like this again. I think the POS 1101 is replacing it.

    I was really disappointed about this outcome, I was close to ordering one of the HD ones! But I found something else! On another page! There seems to be a rumor, that HP wants to offer the 1366 HD screen for their other Minis starting some time in July! I would definitely appreciate that!

    The HP Mini 110 will be getting a high-res option, see our previous article here. It will end up costing $30 and will be released next month.

    I also liked the 2140 series.
    However, I think HP will offer an HD resolution model for the 2150 series as well.
    Also, as Jet Sun mentioned, I read an article on this site about an HD screen option for the Mini 110 series.

    Anyway, I hope they can keep the aluminum body and fix the screen glass that traps dust inside.
