HP 2133 Sub-Notebook First Review

The beautiful HP 2133 is making its way to reviewers and the first impressions are very positive, very much in line with what we expected after looking at the specifications. It’s cheap: the $550 version is substantial and the $749 one will flat out beat anything of this size. We like the high-resolution display, the comfortable and the high-quality construction in general. It is not perfect however: It runs hot and forces the cooling fans to spin frequently. Also, the display can’t be bent all the way back, making it hard for tall users to look straight at the screen. Thanks to Xavier from notebook.com for sharing his first impression with us.
