CES 2010: HP Mini 5102 is HP’s First Touch-enabled Netbook

The HP Mini 5102 is aimed at students for good reason – it’s HP’s first touch-enabled netbook. A touchscreen doesn’t come standard on the 5102, but it is optionally available with a capacitive multi-touch display. The netbook measures .91 inches thin and weighs just 2.64 lb., it sports Intel’s Atom Processor, has a 95 percent of full-size, spill-resistant QWERTY keyboard and large touchpad, and it comes preloaded with Corel Home Office suite, and HP student edition featuring Adobe Digital School collection. The system, which is made of aluminum and magnesium, promises to be very rugged and kid proof, and it also optionally comes with a handle to make it easier for kids to lug around. Pricing begins at $399 and the system comes in a choice of kid-friendly red, blue, or black.
