HP Mini 5103 now available Stateside
Looking for a new netbook to tote around on your travels? You won’t be disappointed with HP’s offerings, despite many netbooks these days being the same within (and for some, without). After all, HP didn’t become to the top computer manufacturer in the world for no apparent reason. You can choose netbooks from different manufacturers, but we will look at what HP has to offer with their Mini 5103 netbook today. It tips the scales at just 2.64 pounds, but is more than capable of delivering the capability of a full-performance companion PC, targeting mobile professionals as well as K-12 and higher-education students. Underneath the hood, the HP Mini 5103 will support the latest dual core processor from Intel, the Atom N550. Of course, you can also opt for the Atom N455 and N475 processors, where all of them will be able to handle faster DDR3 memory for better performance.
Depending on your preference, you can choose from standard or touch-enabled models, and the HP Mini 5103 will also be accompanied by a sturdy, lightweight, anodized-aluminum display enclosure with a brushed, espresso-colored finish. Not only that, you can also opt for the handle to make transportation of the netbook a whole lot easier. You won’t find your fingers cramped either, simply because it is 95% the size of a full QWERTY keyboard alongside the addition of a touchpad that delivers an optimal experience for email, instant messaging and other text-driven applications. Nice to know the optional touchscreen display is also capable of handling a range of multitouch gestures, finger taps and swipes across the screen for more convenient navigation of applications, information and websites.
Other hardware specifications include a 10.1-inch diagonal LED display, a Broadcom HD video decoder card, the choice of a four-cell battery for lighter weight or optional six-cell battery for longer battery life, the HP DayStarter software program, and a range of other accessories. Prices start from $399 upwards.
