"Compared to the HP Mini 1000 with MIE introduced last October, HP's Mini 110 with Mi offers a larger, faster hard drive, a VGA port, and a third USB port, says HP. The Mini 110, which is also available in a Windows XP version, is closely based on the Mini 1000. The biggest difference is the price, which has been slashed from $380 to $280. The "Mi Edition" of the Mini 110 is pre-installed with HP's Ubuntu-based, media-centric Linux distro, called Mobile Internet (Mi).

"Like the Mini 1000, the Mini 110 offers a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, and up to 2GB of DDR2 memory, but instead of supplying separate 8.9-inch or 10.2-inch display options, the Mini 110 provides a 10.1-inch display as standard, with the same 1024 x 576 resolution. A 1080p HD-ready model is expected to ship this summer. In place of the optional 60GB drive supplied on the Mini 1000, the Mini 110 provides a faster 5400RPM HDD with 250GB capacity as standard, with a 32GB solid-state drive (SSD) offered as an option."
