HP has updated its range of netbooks and laptops, claiming to offer business users more powerful and longer lasting devices on the move.
The redesigned HP Mini 5103 business netbook is now available with a touch screen and an Intel Atom N550 dual-core processor.
The 5103 comes with a 10.1in LED-backlit WSVGA wide-screen display. When equipped with the Broadcom HD video decoder card, the device is capable of playing high-resolution 720p and 1080p HD video content.
The optional touch screen will increase efficiency and provide easier navigation of applications and web sites by allowing users to input data through multi-touch gestures, finger taps and swipes, according to HP. A touch-screen version of the device weighs in at 1.3Kg.
HP supplies 2GB of DDR3 RAM and a 95 per cent spill resistant Qwerty keyboard, making it extra durable, the firm claimed.
Customers can choose a four-cell battery for lighter weight or a six-cell for longer running time. The 5103 delivers 10 hours and 15 minutes with the six-cell battery, HP said.
The ultra portable HP Mini 210, meanwhile, is designed to provide long life computing for those constantly on the move.
The 210 features built-in wireless LAN, webcam, microphone and a nearly full-sized, island-style keyboard. Dual-core Intel Atom processor N550, N455 or N475 processors are available, all supporting DDR3 memory.
The laptop is less than 1in thick and weighs 1.4Kg. It comes with an inline six-cell battery as standard that provides up to 11 hours and 15 minutes hours of battery life, HP claimed.
