HP has upgraded its Linux-ready "Mini" netbooks, offering its new "HP Mini 110 with Mi" at a much lower $280 pricetag than the previous Mini 1000. Meanwhile, Shuttle switched from an Intel Atom to Via's 1.0GHz Nano U1700 processor for its latest, low-power Shuttle XS29F nettop.

Compared to the HP Mini 1000 with MIE introduced last October, HP's Mini 110 with Mi offers a larger, faster hard drive, a VGA port, and a third USB port, says HP. The Mini 110, which is also available in a Windows XP version, is closely based on the Mini 1000. The biggest difference is the price, which has been slashed from $380 to $280. The "Mi Edition" of the Mini 110 is pre-installed with HP's Ubuntu-based, media-centric Linux distro, called Mobile Internet (Mi).
