HP's latest business netbook will start at $299

With the introduction of Apple's iPad earlier this year and the arrival of Samsung's Galaxy Tab, the netbook market hasn't gotten much time in the spotlight. In fact, some reports suggest that tablets like the iPad are even eroding the market share of netbooks.

Despite this, Hewlett Packard is moving forward and is releasing a new netbook aimed at business professionals. The HP Mini 1103 weighs in at 2.78 pounds and comes with a 93% full-size keyboard. Like most other netbooks on the market, it features a 10.1" screen (1024x600) and your choice of 3-cell or 6-cell batteries.

The netbook comes with an Intel NM10 Express Chipset which powers an Intel Atom N455 or N475 processor. 1GB comes standard with the machine, but it can be upgraded to a maximum of 2GB.

Wireless connectivity is fully covered thanks to 802.11n, Bluetooth 3.0, and HP Mobile Broadband (EV-DO/HSPA).

Choices of preinstalled operating systems include Windows 7 Starter 32, SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 and FreeDOS.

The HP Mini 1103 will be available beginning in December for $299.
