    HP continued with its "blue-shift" of incorporating Intel Atom processors across its ULPC lineup, this time with its Mini 2140 netbook, siblings of whom are based on VIA processors. The Mini 2140 comes with a 10.1-inch LCD with LED-backlit illumination. The screen provides a maximum resolution of 1366 x 768 px. The chassis holds an almost complete QWERTY keyboard, a 1.3 MP webcam and a track-pad. Under the hood is an Atom CPU clocked at 1.60 GHz, up to 160 GB of hard-drive storage, with connectivity options including ethernet, WiFi, an ExpressCard slot and some USB 2.0 ports. Operating system options include Windows XP, Windows Vista, OpenSuSE Linux or FreeDOS. This notebook is equipped with hard-drive fall damage protection that senses a fall and quickly parks the hard-drive to try and minimise the damage. The unit tips the scales at 1.17 kg (around 2.58 lbs). It will start selling later this month at a price of US $499.
