The 10″ HP netbook will be powered by an industry-standard 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, and have 1 GB of RAM and a 250 GB hard drive. Verizon’s HP Mini 210 will also have a 5-in-1 card reader, an external VGA port, Windows 7 Starter, and a webcam. The battery life on this little powerhouse is an expected 8.8 hours — not bad at all.
After a $100 mail-in-rebate from Verizon for signing a two-year data contract, the price for the HP Mini 210 netbook will be a cool $249.
Hewlett-Packard has tried different designs with their netbooks before, and wanting to spice up the color palette even more for their netbooks, the company has recently come out with two new color schemes for the HP Mini 210 netbook in particular, White Crystal and Preppy Pink. The Preppy Pink design pictured below is created using HP Imprint 3D, which produces a layered three-dimensional visual effect of the plaid on the exterior of the netbook. Both the White and Pink netbooks will be available starting on June 15th for $349 each.
Besides the new colors, the netbooks themselves have not observed any changes in the equipment or otherwise. To learn more about the HP Mini 210 netbook, check out one of our previous articles.

It seems like netbook manufacturers are giving into peer pressure and are simultaneously upgrading their models with the Intel Atom N450 CPU. Dell and Fujitsu were the first to announce the switch to the improved CPU, now it is HP’s turn to join in on the fun.
HP has announced that its Mini 210 netbook, revealed a couple of months back, will be using the N450 processor. The new model is set out to replace the company’s HP Mini 110.
Standard features include:
- 1 GB of RAM
- 160 GB-250 GB HDD
- Windows 7
The Mini 210 will be sold for around $321, and the release date for the netbook is still unknown. The device should experiemce stiff competition in the netbook market, which has shown tremendous growth over the past year.
