HP 2133 Mini-Note PC starts at $499

Hp_2133_launchAlthough it’s no longer April 7th for most of the world, here in Hawaii there are still six hours to go before the HP 2133 UMPC rumored to launch today misses its mark.

Since Amazon and CompSource have already given several configurations of what is now called the HP 2133 Mini-Note PC their own product pages, most are expecting a formal announcement very soon. If you find the wait excruciating, however, PC World has already published an article at 5:01 pm PDT that opens with "HP today entered the affordable mini-notebook category with its eye-catching HP 2133." Today? Someone obviously hit "publish" a bit too early, as HP hasn’t issued a press release yet, but blogging wouldn’t be what it is if we all couldn’t benefit from someone else’s eagerness, right? (Update: PC World has since changed the date of their article to April 8, 12:01 am).

I’m still reading the two-page piece but wanted to highlight a bit of info that should be of interest to anyone considering the 8.9-inch notebook: the price. According to PC World, the 2133 Mini-Note PC will range between $499 (Linux, 1GHz C7-M CPU, 512MB RAM) and $749 (Vista Business, 1.6GHz C7-M CPU, 2GB RAM). Any takers?

Update: Press release (dated April 8) and product page now available; unit expected to be released "later this month."
