When the Asus Eee PC 900 landed in the TechRadar office a month ago, there was an air of excitement.
The buzz was apparent even amongst those behind the scenes-types who wouldn't normally get excited about what is essentially just a new PC.
And yet when we actually saw the Eee PC 900, the atmosphere fell flat. It looked exactly the same as the original apart form a bigger screen. And a bit of extra storage and memory wasn't really enough to get anyone excited.
One month on, in comes the HP 2133 Mini-Note. It's the latest sub-notebook that's come to take a slice of Eee PC pie - and it looks like it might have a good chance to grab a lion's share.
Because while the Eee PC 900 fell down on price - £100 more expensive for only a few extra features - the Mini-Note adds a raft of features for only a little more cash.
Think the HP Mini-Note sounds interesting?
