HP Mini Note 2140 Priced at Php23,950

A number of people have been asking about the HP Mini 2140 and when it will be available in the Philippines. I initially thought it will take some time since the HP Mini 1000 is already in shelves. Looks like Complink has them on stock at a retail price of Php23,950. 

Intel Atom CPU N270 1.6GHz
1 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (max 2GB)
Mobile Intel GMA 950
10.1″ display
160 GB HDD 5400 rpm SATA
Broadcom WiFi 802.11 b/g
2 USB 2.0
Integrated VGA webcam
3-cell battery

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series

hp mininote b2140

The unit weighs about 2.6 lb (1.19 kg) and runs Windows XP Home. Looks like HP realized their mistake with the HP Mini 2133 and Windows Vista. Available at CompLink since March 11 for just Php23,950. At this price point, it basically killed the old model altogether (or maybe they’ll just do a sale price on that one).

    hi. i’m thinking of getting this or the hp mini 311 to replace my msi wind(it’s really slow and takes forever to open websites).

    i’m still uncertain which to get. what i need is something small, so either a notebook or a subnotebook, and something which would work great with the net. I get easily pissed with slow computers. do you have any suggestions?

    For me, its still the 1001TU model. Sleek design since its all black, 1024 X 600 screen reso at 10.1″ widescreen.

    Im running both XP home and OS X! But I am using OS X more since I am an apple fan :)

    Sorry guys, just wanna boast about it, hehehe.

    I’m loving the 2140. The bottom gets heated up when plugged, though. It’s like touching a frying pan. I bought a cooling pad for when I have to leave it on as a download slave for long period. If I want to work with it on my lap, I need a pillow or something.

    Still, not as hot as my Thinkpad gets, though. You can fry an egg on a Thinkpad X series after 3 hours of use.

    I inquired the same thing (the VGA) with PC Live the day I was deciding between the 2140 and the 1109TU.

    5K php is just their “rough” estimate, but if it turns out that’s the SRP then that’s insane. These dealers shouldn’t be jacking up their price just because these items are hard to come by locally. The extra price might be a commission based scheme…x_x

    HP should do something to make it more affordable for people who have bought their products.

    If anyone can sell these much needed accessories/upgrades at a much more reasonable price, please do so for our sake. ^^

    I’ve called HP a while ago to inquire about the mini VGA cable. They forwarded me to PCLive instead since they don’t sell DAW to consumers directly. When I called PCLive, they told me it was freaking 5K! for a cable that costs $20 in the US!!! Sabi nila, estimated price palang naman daw. I was kinda pissed since HP told me that it would be around 3K, but still, the price difference from the US is too much. Anyway, it may be an enterprising move to order lots from the US and resell them for 2K each. hahaha. On the battery part, it’s $95 in the US right now for the 6-cell battery.

    Wow, that’s absurd… It would be much cheaper and faster importing it.

    I tried inquiring at PC Live and they said it usually takes at least 3 business days if their HP distributor his it in stock.

    I didn’t ask about the price but I doubt it would be that expensive coming from an official supplier. That price is almost double and it won’t be good news for people who would want to upgrade their battery. x_x

    Better get 1st hand info from HP… I’ve talked with a lot of sales persons and they’re usually bluffing about the things they know about the products they sell.

    Has anyone contacted HP Philippines about it?

    Complink store at Digital Exchange is already carrying this, got mine yesterday. an order for a 6 cell battery will set you back Php 11K , delivery time is 30-45 days.

    @segagiga. i see. thank you very much

    In the US it’s Sold as $191 USD.

    Here in the Philippines the HP Mini’s 6 Cell battery might be more or less expensive. You’ll just have to contact their support number. You can inquire with Complink or PC Live about it.

    I have no plans yet of upgrading my battery yet. For now it’s sufficient for the stuff I do when I’m on the go.

    They have the same resolutions 1024×576 pixels. Again, this might be a deal breaker for some. Specially those who might be using their system for photoshop.

    It was a tough choice choosing between the new 1109TU and the 2140. You just have to ask yourself which of the 2 is your preference:

    Form or Functionality.

    In this case it can’t be both. The 1109TU is sleeker but has less. The 2140 has more but it’s not as eye-catchy from the outside. What made me choose the 2140 is the VGA port, the sturdy aluminum casing, more durable keys, separate mic,headphone jacks and more storage space which makes up for the price difference. ^^

    I am using 1109 and so far no problems with it. Very snappy and very sleek. Question, how do i determine the resolution? does it have the same resolution as that of the 2140?

    Im planning to sell this 1109 thou and upgrade to 2140 and hopefully i could get a buyer for this one.. Hope its worth the upgrade..
