HP Mini 1116NR: $199 at Future Shop

Now here is a brilliant deal.  The HP Mini 1116NR for $199CDN.  I just ordered one (for $229.  Grr…) and am very pleased.  It is pretty much identical to the HP Mini Mie that I reviewed earlier with three important differences:

  • It has 16GB of SSD instead of 8GB
  • It ships with XP (booo!)
  • It has a matte screen (yeah!)

You can reload HP’s Mobile Internet Experience (Mie) OS here.  This gives you a perfectly functioning Ubuntu 8.04 netbook for $200.  What an amazing deal.  Mine arrived on Friday, it’s perfect.
