HP Mini 5102

Hewlett-Packard has officially launched its first touch-enabled netbook. HP has had the businessman on the go when it conceptualized the new Mini 5102, which is the first HP netbook with two-finger capacitive touch technology.

Powered by Intel’s new Atom N450 or N470 processors, the HP Mini 5102 may be seen as replacing HP’s 6-month-old Mini 5101 netbook. All of 2.64 pounds in weight, the HP Mini 5102 netbook’s size specs read 0.91 inch in thickness and comes with an island-style keypad. Further, the new netbook runs the touch-enabled Windows 7 operating system.

Other features include a 2 megapixel webcam with face recognition for fast log-in, aluminum or magnesium case and a 10-inch LED screen with 1024×600 or 1366×768 resolution. The netbook also offers the choice of Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit, Windows 7 Starter, Windows XP Home, Suse Linux Enterprise 11 and even FreeDOS for those who would like to go for it. The line up comprises netbooks in three different hues.

On the storage front, HP has thrown in up to 2 GB of RAM and has also attached an Optional Broadcom HD video accelerator. HP will offer the new net book for a price starting at $399.
