HP's 2133 sub-notebook breaks cover

ASUS's Eee PC took the world and the mobile industry by storm. The tiny, two-pound device features a 7" display, 900MHz Celeron processor, SSD (ranging in size of 2GB to 8GB) and wireless connectivity.

HP is also looking to get into the market with its new 2133 ultra-portable notebook. According to leaked images obtained by Engadget, the 2133 features an 8.9" glossy display (1366x768), 95% full-size keyboard, ExpressCard slot, WLAN and an integrated webcam. An SSD will be optional with the device and will most likely be of the 1.8" variety. Users can choose either Windows Vista or Linux for the operating system.

When it comes to styling, the HP 2133 makes the ASUS Eee PC look rather plain and boring. The 2133 features a smooth, sleek shape and has an exterior made from anodized aluminum. According to HP, the exterior is also free of screws to further emphasis the smooth, clean look.

As is usually the case with leaked information on future products, there is no word on pricing for the new ultra-portable device. Given the features and aluminum body, the 2133 is likely to be priced well above that of the Eee PC which starts at a mere $299. Opting for the SSD is sure to push prices even higher into the stratosphere.

Stay tuned for further details on the HP 2133 as an official announcement is likely just around the corner.

Well, it already has some advantages over the EeePC including a proper WXGA display and a 1.8'' mechanical HDD. I'm going to do a bit of speculation and guess it will probably feature an Intel Core 2 Duo U7500 or Core 2 Solo U2100. I'd also say 1gb of DDR2 is it's going to run Vista. The price of the two processors alone will probably push the price well over what the base EeePC sells for. If they can keep the final price around $600 though, I'd say it would be worth it.

I have a 12" hp 2710p tablet, so I guess i know the specs of that device more or less. but yes, that resolution on such a small screen is quite impressive/crazy.

we'll see.

could make a great backup-notebook for my djing stuff.

Fat chance of getting this under $600--if it is I'd buy two in a heartbeat. I don't think this is meant to compete against the EeePC, but rather offer a premium alternative.

My guess is that this will be priced between $899-$1499 depending on the configuration.

I stand corrected--some websites are reporting that this might be a UMPC vs. subnotebook, and that it might be powered by a VIA chipset. If that's the case, sub-$500 pricing should be doable.
