HP Mini 5101 in the flesh

HP Mini 5101 in the flesh

First time I saw the HP Mini 5101 was earlier this week during the Windows 7 Enterprise Launch. I only had a short video clip of it. Fortunately, I had another chance to use it again today. Check out the video and photos after the jump.

As mentioned in earlier posts, the HP Mini 5101 is powered by an Intel atom N280 @ 1.66GHz, GMA 950, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, WiFi and Bluetooth in a 10.1″ screen @ 1024×600 resolution — almost similar in specs with the HP Mini 2140 with some upgrades. The 6-cell battery protrudes at bit at the bottom end and gets me about 5 hours of power.


It feels a little thick though from the side compared to the other HP Minis they’ve released earlier. The chicklet-type keys are also smaller but are more spaced apart.

The unit has Windows 7 Professional pre-installed and Windows Experience Index gave it a score of 2.1. An HP exec told me they introduced this earlier to their corporate clients but the units are also being sold by distributors for Php23,995. I have yet to see these in stores though.

    the front cover seems to be a fingerprint magnet =).

    this is probably wishful thinking but it doesn’t hurt to ask.. does the 23K include the Windows 7 OS?

  2. yuga says:

    @iamupset – it has a brushed-metal finish so not much of a finger-print magnet. However, if you have sweaty or oily hands, that could easily get transferred.

    Yes, Windows 7 Pro is included in the price.

    ok nga ito. nung nakita ko ito i guess talagang feasible na ang mga netbooks for business people.

    lolz @ fingerprint. I though the lower right was a reflection of the one holding the laptop

    The Windows Experience Index low score was probably due to the Intel 950’s performance (with a X3100 aka GMA 965 I got 2.4), which begs the question why they are shipping an older chipset when Intel 4500/4500HD are now available?

    I’m choosing between HP Mini 5101 and HP Mini 311. Any thoughts? Anong mas “sulit”? Pareho naman kaya ang Windows 7, right?

  13. Graci says:
