> I dropped into PC World today as I was passing and they are selling the HP Mininote 2133 for £200 and it seems a few other places are too as HP are dropping the 2133 in favour of an Atom based Mininote 1000s. It's a Via C7-M processor at 1.2GHz (marginally less speedy than 1.6GHz Atom, remember clock speed isn't everything), 1200x768 resolution which is more than any other netbook, 1GB RAM, 120GB hard disk, wireless B/G, bluetooth 2.0 and webcam running the slightly dated SUSE 10.1.

It's not the clock speed that would make me go "eww" but the fact it's
a Via C7-M. They're not exactly quick. Even a Celeron M wipes the
floor with the C7, let alone the Atom.

Avoid IMO.
