HP pitches 10in netbook at business

No Windows Starter for the suits

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

HP clearly thinks there's still mileage in the netbook - many of its rivals don't - at the very least as a business device. It has launched a new model, the Mini 1104, to prove it.

Unlike consumer-centric netbooks, the 1104 runs Windows 7 Home Premium rather than Starter Edition.

But the spec is otherwise netbook standard: 1.6GHz Intel Atom N2600 CPU; 2GB of DDR 3 memory; 320GB, 5400rpm hard drive; Intel GMA 3600 CPU-integrated graphics; 10.1in, 1024 x 600 display.

It also comes with 802.11n Wi-Fi - in a rare moment of generosity, this one comes with support for the 5GHz band - and Bluetooth 3.0. There's a 100Mbps Ethernet port, and three USB 2.0 jacks.

In the States, prices start at $399 (£257). As yet, there's no world on a UK release, but it won't be far off, we think. ®
