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.

Snap-together construction doesn't mean unserviceable; It means you probably have to use a special tool to take it apart if you don't want to damage the case. The Apple Mac Mini is a classic example of this. No external screws. You have to use a specially sharpened spackling knife to pry the case open.

However, you show me one laptop that is easy to service. They are all crammed together in their own unique fragile way that almost always makes it a huge pain in the ass to service anything beyond memory, expansions slots, and keyboard.
