HP should have dubbed this beauty the mighty note. Mini doesnt even come close to describing this feature packed wonder and it doesnt really do full justice to the ultra compact size either.

Its got a full 120GB hard drive, Windows Vista onboard, a full size (92%) QWERTY keyboard and a design that makes Jessica Alba/Johnny Dep (your choice) look boring.

Unlike other notebooks in its class, its also built to last with an all-aluminium case and magnesium interior.

Good looks, top specs, rave reviews at a catch exclusive price!

    Thanks thanratty and welcome to buckscoop.

    be interesting to see how much they price this at when it comes on sale. I suspect you'll want to get in quick to get one if they come in sub 300.

    Thanks for the post Thanratt. Hard to list this in the 'hot deals' section at the moment though as we have no idea if it is actually a good deal :)
  • nod2008/07/29 09:15:33
    You have bagged your self a $5 voucher though :)

    the only UMPC from HP that I know of is the HP 2133, prices starts at $746 from Megaware Computers.

    If I remember I'll have a look at midday and see what they are offering.
  • lilpretzel2008/07/29 12:01:30
    Funny you guys have voted even without knowing the price. :cool:

    $699.00 :eek: ummmm Yes it cheaper than anywhere else that I can find online but a bit cheaper would had been nicer.


    I think it's the FREE USB Travel Size Wireless Mouse! :p

    with the cash back this is about $650 .but you can pickup better(?) for similar prices ... see the eee pc 1000H and perhaps MSI Wind

    warm vote from me

    Everything looks good except the CPU. I wouldn't buy it for this reason. Too low.
  • admin2008/07/29 17:23:30
    at $699 I'd say its reasonable value but not a blinder. COTD hype.
  • lilpretzel2008/07/29 17:26:05
    Strange no comment from the COTD rep... QQQ
  • nod2008/07/29 17:29:48
    I have to agree that the 'massive' bonus was a bit disappointing ... reminds of the duster thingy that was being passed off as a super gift too :D
  • thanratt2008/07/29 20:04:24
    Thanks Admin and Admin Monster. I wasn't sure if this deal would be allowed since there was no price in the preview info I got via email. I did think that others may want to be informed in case the deal was too good to miss as advertised, so thought I'd give it a go in the spirit of 'sharing'.

    I have now read the the info for posting deals - thanks for the gentle reminder, but I still don't understand what you mean by 'You have bagged your self a $5 voucher' though - can you explain?

    Thanks for the welcome & apologies if posted incorrectly - will try to do better next time.
