HP Mini 5102

The HP Mini 5102, dubbed the 'Mini Executive,' is HP's smallest and lightest companion PC. It is housed in a durable, yet lightweight all-metal case and available in three colors. Its depth is .91 inches and it weighs 2.64 lbs. The HP Mini 5102 offers touch capabilities for easier navigation, face recognition for easy log-in, and Corel Home Office. It includes a 10.1-inch diagonal LED-backlit display, Intel Atom processor, wireless connectivity and the integrated 2MP webcam. The QWERTY keyboard is 95 percent of the size of a desktop keyboard.

The netbook has not yet fully emerged as a separate and distinct business device category. But, like smartphones, Wi-Fi and other technologies before it, the consumer device is being used by people at work. IT Business Edge takes a look at devices vendors suggest are the most valuable in a work environment.

The definition of non-phone mobile devices is still a bit fuzzy. At the same time, experts are saying that the netbook – also known as the mini-notebook – has peaked. It will be interesting to see if vendors see the business world, or specific verticals such as health care, as a way to reinvigorate the category.
