I’ve already reviewed Modern Warfare 2 and Left4Dead 2, and partly the HP Pavilion dm3 this fall, and there’s not much left as we approach the quiet news season AKA holiday season. However, things from the rumors department are heating up with more and more news of 2nd gen Elitebook models pouring in. Let’s not get too tied up with premium, business notebooks that not everyone will/can buy, shall we? Here’s the latest scoop from the consumer product area – with the slew of new netbooks sporting Intel’s Atom N450 processor with an integrated basic graphics chipset announced last/this week, and HP seemingly quiet, a reliable source/reader has news that HP will be releasing their Mini 200 series of netbooks “soon”. They will feature 10 inch glossy displays, Windows 7, 1 RAM slot, HP’s “almost full-size” keyboard, the latest Intel Atom N450 processor and an affordable netbooky price tag. Other than that, not much is known about the Mini 200 series but presumably they will have the usual netbook affair of features and likely make their appearance during/after CES 2010.
