by Ostatic Staff - Feb. 04, 2009

The $379.99 Hewlett-Packard Mini 1000 MI netbook is a new Linux-based offering with a customized user interface shell dubbed MI for Mobile Internet. JKOnTheRun has been putting one of the first units through the paces, and offers up a photo tour. These guys try netbooks by the truckload, and they say that this new unit is the smallest and lightest one with a comfortable 10-inch display that they've used. It ships with Ubuntu, a 1.6-GHz Atom N270 processor, 1GB of memory, a multi-format card reader, HD audio and 16 GB of SSD storage. The built-in browser is a variant of Firefox, and it looks like it supports extensions. Check the svelte system out here, and check HP's site out for more.
