Ubuntu'd HP Mini 1000 Mi Launched

We don't know if Verne Troyer's into the whole netbook scene or the open source movement, but if he is, he can now order HP's shagadelic Mini 1000 Mi. Sporting a 9-inch screen, the pint sized mobile PC gets randy with the Linux community by trading in Microsoft's Windows XP for a customized version of Ubuntu.

A baseline configuration starts at $330 and includes an Intel Atom N270 (1.6GHz) processor, 512MB of DDR2 RAM, 8GB SSD drive, and HP's Mobile internet (Mi) software. But if baseline's not your bag, the Mini 1000 Mi's mojo allows for custom configurations, something not common in the netbook sector. Upgrade options include a 10.1-inch display, 1GB DDR2 RAM (currently a free upgrade), 16GB SSD or 60GB 4200 RPM hard drive, and Bluetooth.
