HP Mini 110
The ultra-portable HP Mini 110 has a 10.1-inch LED widescreen display with built-in Wi-Fi and weighs just 2.89 pounds. The HP Mini 110 will come in either Windows XP or MI Linux OS and will offer HP's Syncables software that can sync your docs, music, photos, video and other info with either a desktop machine or another laptop.
The built-in HP Webcam and Skype keep you close to friends and relatives. Its near-full-size (92%) keyboard is more comfortable for most than the thumb keys on smartphones and PDAs. Stream video or playback files loaded from your primary PC via Syncables software, a USB drive or the internet. Connect to a larger display via the VGA port to share with others.

? Intel Atom Processor N270 or N280 ? Genuine Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3 ? 10.1? Diagonal SD LED Anti-glare Widescreen Display (1024 x 576) ?
