HP Mini 1000 Specifications
Display: 10.2″ TFT LCD
Pixel Format: 1024 x 600
HP‘s Mini 1000 is the company’s latest netbook. The Mini 1000 sports a 10.2″ TFT LCD but with just 1024 x 600 pixels. That’s a let down because the smaller 2133 sports a 8.9″ LCD with a 1280 x 768 pixel format. I wish HP could have kept the higher pixel format but it might have been difficult to get a 10″-class LCD with that format since I don’t know of any that are currently being mass manufactured. Almost all wide 10.2″ LCDs sport a 1024 x 600 pixel format. Although there are less pixels 1024 x 600 will be adequate for most tasks and will be good enough web surfing as most sites are formatted for a width of 1024 pixels.
The Mini 1000 looks pretty nice from the picture. The case is black plastic compared to the silver metallic material that was used on the 2133. I guess HP needs to save on cost since the Mini 1000 will be have a competitive price of around $399. Jump over to Engadget and read all about the other specifications.
