HP Mini 2140 notebook

 

With the netbook market really having an impact in 2008, HP have lined-up new models for 2009. Building on the Mini-Note 2133 comes the Mini 2140, which steps up incrementally in terms of hardware, and also seems to drop the "Note" part from the name,...

Great screen for movie watching, build quality, keyboard size

No 3G modem, not the best for bright conditions

So taken as a complete bundle it is clear where the strengths of the 2140 lie. For the international traveller, it has the durability, capacity and battery life to let you work or stay entertained whilst on the move. It also lends itself to keyboard...

HP Mini 2140 review

 

Have HP made this netbook a bit too 'premium'?

Oodles of style ; Excellent usability

Expensive ; Poor performance

A stylish and usable piece of kit, but the relatively high price tag and Vista operating system slightly spoil the party

HP Mini 2140 review

 

HP's Mini 2140 looks almost identical to the company's 2133 Mini-Note which is no bad thing.

HP Mini 2140 review

 

But the HP Mini 2140 carries a grown-up price as well. UK pricing and availability has yet to be revealed, but it costs $529 for our test unit's midlevel configuration. The HP Mini 2140 will go on sale in the US later this month from $499 (around £342...

HP has assembled a compelling netbook package, but in the US at least, the HP Mini 2140 in its premium configuration bears a price tag that approaches what you'd expect to find on a good all-purpose machine.

HP - Mini 2140

 

There was plenty to like about HP's Mini-Note 2133 netbook, but, as our review back in September last year pointed out, it was ultimately let down by a sluggish processor. Now HP is back with the ...

If there's one thing going against the Mini 2140, it's the price tag that comes with it. Given the specs, we were expecting it to be closer to the £300 mark. We were also left yearning for the high-resolution display of the Mini-Note 2133, and although...

HP Mini 2140 netbook

 

A good update maintains the cool looks and great keyboard, but we expected more for the money.

So where does the HP Mini 2140 sit in the netbook hall of fame? Well, pretty close to the top as it happens. We love the keyboard, its lightweight nature and robust design. It is, however, a little on the pricey side compared to the competition. Both...

HP Mini 2140 netbook

 

Third time's a charm? HP tries yet again to crack the netbook market, and its third endeavour is its best entry yet. Using the Mini 2133 as a base design (complete with anodised aluminium case, bezel-free LCD, and spacious keyboard), the Mini 2140 has...

ExpressCard and SD media reader slots. Amazing battery life. Exceptional design aesthetics. Loaded with features trickling down from higher-end laptops

Touchpad too far south; flush design means fingers keep slipping off the bottom. Side-mounted buttons still too awkward for extended use. More expensive than a netbook should be

HP Mini 2140

 

HP's Mini 2140 is a netbook that's fast and feature-rich.

5400rpm hard drive, 2GB RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, small

Uncomfortable touchpad, status LEDs are too bright, vertical viewing angles aren't wide enough

If you need a netbook that's almost as fully featured as a regular notebook, the HP Mini 2140 is hard to ignore. It's aimed at business users, but at $1099 it's the perfect ultraportable netbook for anyone who wants faster networking features, a faster...
