HP Mini 5101 Price: Php23,995

First announced last June, the HP Mini 5101 is a 10-inch netbook aimed towards the business class. I think I’ve correctly predicted the retail price to just shy of 5 pesos.

It has the same form factor as the HP Mini Note 2140 only in black, brushed-metallic finish.

    1024 x 576 pixels? Tama ito?

  2. Wow!!!
    I’ve been waiting for this!
    This is the netbook I’ll be buying this Christmas.

    Can’t wait to see a display model.

    the resolution doesn’t look good. those few missing pixels are most important when browsing websites.

  4. a.cantos says:

    btw, i thought 5101 will have a choice between 1024 x 600 and 1366 x 768 only…

  5. so that’s P24,000. Hmmm, for an HP, its good. But I think there are other alternatives price-wise =D specs are good though :-)

  6. Anonymous says:

    The spec is good as it 802.11n ready, but only if the resolution is higher than this is a good buy.

  7. Jonarx says:

    Sir Abe,

    Tong model na to may 3g card slot bah?
    At this price range?

    Thanks. :)

  8. other review sites said it is just practically abnout 6hours of battery life, at an average. was supposed to get this but the Toshiba’s real 9hours of battery life really captured my heart.

  9. BluBlue says:

    Hi Sir,
    Isn’t the resolution of this is at 1024 x 600? :O

  10. Ferdie says:

    I’ve heard HP’s mobos are made of VIA chipsets which made the price of it real cheap. I’m not sure about this though.

  11. Mukhang tagilid sa resolution boss Abe.

  12. Bon says:

    Hmm – according to laptopmag.com, the 5101 has a minimum resolution of 1024×600: http://www.laptopmag.com/review/laptop/hp-mini-5101.aspx

  13. Ernie says:

    It is less than 500 Us so it’s cheap. Nice with 2mp webcam.

    CoD on a netbook?

    Play it on a machine that can handle the game so you can appreciate it more. CoD is a great game that is just wasted on a mediocre processor, integrated graphics and a tiny screen.

    Wala pa sa Asianic na ganyang model, my bro just ask all the personnel in Megamall. Post lang daw yun, as in wala pa dito sa pinas. Ewan ko ba sa kanila bat naglalagay pa sila ng ganung post.


  18. lyn says:

    I inquired about this yesterday. was informed by the Asianic personnel that I would have to wait for 2-3 weeks before I can get my hands on it. I also have to pay half right away…regarding the resolution, I specifically asked for the model with the HD resolution (1366×768). they told me they can arrange it naman daw. i dunno lang kung i would have to shell out extra moolah for the upgrade. it also ships with windows xp, not windows 7 kasi yun daw ang package for philippine consumers.

  19. jim says:

    I really like the HP mini 5101, the problem is asianic guys….. ewan ko ba, mali kase yung encoder nila, 4 cell battery lang ang kasama sa package nila. now i decided to buy hp mini 311. its cool… hehehh.
