HP Mini 1000 netbook has Ubuntu

HP has introduced a new line of netbooks with competitive pricing of as low as US$379. The HP Mini 1000 line of netbooks will be using Intel’s Atom processor instead of a VIA processor (used in HP mini-note 2133). You now have the option of getting an HP netbook which has an SSD installed (8GB or 16GB).

Memory configurations are 512MB, 1GB and 2GB plus the usual USB ports, wifi and webcam. The display comes in 8.9 or 10.2 inches at 1024 x 600. It would have been nice to have the option to order it with a 1280×768 10.2 inch display. The new HP netbook line can be pre-installed with Ubuntu that sports HP’s unique MIE interface (why create a unique HP interface?). For the gals, you’ll like the stylish Vivienne Tam Edition that will be available in mid-December in the US.

Hi HP, I’d like a 10.2-inch 1280×768 display, aluminum black body, 1.3 megapixel webcam, 2GB, wifi, HSDPA, 20GB SSD, SDHC slot and Ubuntu Intrepid (for that mobile broadband support) if you please. Thanks.

I hope I get a Netbook soon. Im stuck between this one and Asus Eee 1000H…cuz of the larger disk drive and bluetooth!

I’d rather have one that has SSD drives on it so I don’t have to be concerned about how I carry it around.

do we have any idea as to its release date? the major letdowns of this though would be the meager hard drive space, the overly glared glossy LCD, and the absence of the VGA port. other than that, this looks sexy and sleek.

i just wish it would be released before December…. or at least first week of it.

i am tetering a buying frenzy over this with the MSI Wind or Asus Eee 1000.
