“Education shouldn’t end at the bell,” said Jeri Callaway, vice president and general manager, Personal Systems Group – Americas, HP. “HP believes providing each student with an affordable, creative multimedia tool like the HP Mini will better prepare them to live, learn and work in an information-rich society.”
The company state that it also plans to launch a 2133 Mini-Note packed with Windows Vista Business. As expected, this model will be more expensive: $599.
At present time all eyes are on Dell, who is expected to come up with a similar announcement. Still, one question remains: isn’t $499 a bit too much for a notebook targeted at this specific market?
