    HP's flagship netbook, the Mini 110 XP-edition now comes with an optional 1366x768 pixel, 10.1 inch LCD screen. The new screen makes it suitable for 720p HD video, and comes at US $30 over the base-price of $330. The screen is LED-backlit, and comes with an anti-glare coating. The rest of the netbook's base and optional feature remain unchanged. The netbook has to be configured to come with the new screen, and is not really part of a sub-variant. Configuration options for the Mini 110 can be viewed here.

    That's not bad. Some things could be said against it, though. The N270 can only barely play 720p (my personal experience) and the pixel pitch might be too small.

    that one works


    1.66GHz atom w/ 1GB ram at most. Yeah thats a bit weak for 720P playback.

    You should also add that you can choose a Broadcom(R) Crystal HD Enhanced Video accelerator for HD video acceleration. So it should play 720p just fine.

    Why does the Mi edition only come with one screen (1024x576) whilst the XP gets 720p?

    Had any experience with the N280? Been wondering if it's worth the upgrade money.

    Eh, who knows. Usually the Windows versions come with better options, I'm guessing to try and convince you to buy them.

    TBH, since I'm used to Ubuntu now, I'd just get the Mi edition, since you can get it with 2GB of RAM. :rockout: (Don't think the RAM is upgradable in these, so the most RAM you can get by default, the better.)

    right it comes with software, which does it for it. thats good.

    Examples of this broad support for movie formats include Matroska™ (MKV), Quicktime® (MOV), MPEG-4 (MP4), Audio Video Interleave (AVI), Windows Media® Video (WMV) and Transport Streams (TS, M2TS).


    I'll take back what i said: this is an exception, since it comes with software that does the job. That said, unless they made the codecs global, you'll not get this acceleration under linux flavours of the machine, nor will it work in WMP/media center.

    It's still got the sub-par Intel GMA950 IGP that is incapable of playing back high-definition video at an acceptable framerate so it makes the 720P capable screen resolution pretty obsolete. It's just another netbook with a higher resolution screen. :banghead:

    Nice to see an increase in the screen resolution. 1024x600 that is on most netbooks is kinda lacking.

    why didn't they switch to the new intel chipset that can kinda play 720P while they were at it?
