Doesn't bode well

The 2133 was too slow to begin with. Let's hope they don't scale back the performance even more in the cost-cutting process.

2133 is barely in the budget category

Not a bad thing - mind you - but the 2133 sports pretty much everything required to make it a full ultra portable notebook sans decent CPU.

If there were a (slightly) pimped version of the 2133 with an SSD, max 4GB Ram option and a C2D T8xxx or T9xxx it would be a killer in the ultraportable space and still be much more affordable than Sony, Lenovo or any other players - completely disruptive strategy.

Meanwhile, this is actually the problem with this notebook - its TOO GOOD for the market which it targets. HP realize this partof the equation and will now manufacture a 2033 (or 2132 or somesuch variation) out or recycled garbage and the like.

Meanwhile - HP are still sitting on a cult-maker of a machine with the 2133, akin to the TC1100 series of tablets which STILL TODAY has a cult following of loyal users (actually, HP can thank Compaq for that - but all the same...). So expect interesting things once the 2133 baby brother is released because it will probably mean a change for the next rev of the 2133 also.

Via Nano

If they dropped in the Via Nano processor (directly compatible with the crappy C7 used), either of these siblings could be a killer. Here's hoping...
