HP Mini-Note + SuSE Linux = Eee PC killer?

Filed under
Hardware
SUSE

HP's amazing 2133 Mini-Note is let down by a mediocre processor, but could SuSE Linux turn it into the ultimate travelling companion?

The Mini-Note features an 8.9 inch, 1280x768 widescreen display. Beneath it lies the biggest keyboard we've ever seen on a notebook of this size, taking up the full width of the unit. HP claims it's 92 per cent the size of a standard keyboard and, comparing it to our 13.3 inch MacBook, we'd say this is a fair call.

The Mini-Note's humble 1.6 GHz Via processor groans under the weight of Vista Business, but HP has promised a cheaper version with SuSE Linux Enterprise pre-installed. Considering the Vista-based Mini-Note is only $AU899, a cheaper SuSE-based Mini-Note could blow the new 8.9 inch, $AU599 Eee PC out of the water.

And the fact that Freya is still very much in beta makes the whole affair all the more interesting. A list of reasons why I prefer elementary OS Freya over Ubuntu 14.10 at the moment. Read more
