HP announces $399 Mini 1000 netbook and MIE Linux

Today HP officially announced something we all saw coming… another netbook. The new Mini 1000 is the company’s second netbook, the first being the Mini-Note 2133, but it is the first aimed at consumers as the 2133 was designed for the education market. The Mini 1000 is notable not only because the 2133 was a big hit after being released, but also because HP has moved from using a VIA processor to Intel’s Atom. If that isn’t enough to get you interested the Mini 1000 will be available with HP’s Mobile Internet Experience (MIE), an attractive and intuitive user interface built on top of Ubuntu Linux.
