Companies claim that soon enough our kids will be taking their tablets to school with them. For that to happen the tablet price has to drop and manufacturers have to find a more comfortable way for them to take notes on tablets.
For now, HP thinks that their new netbook could offer a solution for those looking for a convinient option to do their homework. Netbooks seemed to disappear into oblivion for a while, but now HP has decided to launch a new product dedicated mostly to school work – the HP Mini 1104.
The HP Mini 1104 comes with a 10.1-inch display and a 1024×600 resolution and running on a dual-core Intel Atom processor, aided by 2GB of RAM. The graphics will be handled by a GMA 3600 graphics card which will lead to pretty decent performance and a light-weight for any school boy or girl.
Other features of the HP Mini 1104 include USB 2.0 ports, VGA, Ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS which is pretty much all you could ever hope for from a light-weight netbook like this one.
You’ll also get enough storage space from the 320GB HDD and a USB DVD burner as well. HP has reportedly equipped the Mini 1104 netbook with a spill-resistant keyboard, so if you spill your coffee on it in the morning, it won’t be such a big deal. You’ll have to choose between Windows 7 and FreeDOS when you purchase the HP Mini 1104, which will cost $399.
