HP Mini 5102 business netbook arrives!

From the “Oh snap!” department (because my HP Mini 5101 is officially outdated) comes the new HP Mini 5102. HP’s latest netbook targeting business users comes 6 months after they launched the Mini 5101 last year. The Mini 5102 looks a whole lot like the Mini 5101 with an identical exterior design, 95% full sized chiclet keyboard, various operating system options and tool-less access to the single RAM slot on the netbook’s underside. The Mini 5102 is not what you think – it offers more than just a processor upgrade of the Mini 5101. The new features on the Mini 5102 include:

  • Intel’s latest Pine Trail Atom N450 1.66 GHz  single-core processor (Mini 5101 had an Intel Atom N280 processor)
  • Though HP does not mention battery life, from the point above, battery life is definitely going to see an improvement on the HP Mini 5102 thanks to the new power-sipping processor
  • 10 inch LED backlit design with optional multitouch panel
  • New handle connectors at the bottom of the Mini 5102 to attach an optional carrying handle
  • New colors: Blue and red colors are now available, in addition to black

    I just hope it does not have that crappy 1024×576 resolution…. damn, i hope they stop producing soon those pieces of trash.

    1024×600 should be the “legal” minimum for such machines…

    I like HP minis… i have a 1020 now, great machine and design… only happens that my screen failed on warranty period and when i got the mini back from HP service it had a 1024×576 px screen instead… :S I’m still complaining to them… 600px or bust!

      Hi Vlad, the HP Mini 5102 has options for your choice of a 1024 x 600 or 1366 x 768 display. No worries =)

    Hi, HP Mini 5102 support SDHC card?

    Hello, HP claims that the slot is not SDHC but SD only. Did you actually try it with a large SDHC card (what size?) and in which operating system?
