Pulled the trigger on an HP mini 2140 HD. I love my Acer Aspire One, but the vertical resolution is just way too limiting. 1366x768 on a 10" screen is going to be nice. (got the 6-cell battery as well). Should arrive before the weekend.

Congrats! I should have Googled, but is that the new model with the HD video accelerator chip?

Using the HP Mini (2140) now. Absolutely LOVE the additional resolution (compared to my AAO). I believe the upcoming 2150 is the one with the video acceleration, but am not positive.

Upgraded to 2GB of ram (max). This machine is very snappy. Running the latest Ubuntu release.

Nice. I've heard about this HP mini but have never seen it in the local stores in Peterborough. My sister almost bought one, but I talked her out of buying a netbook altogether as a device for showing an internet service to clients. Her site just didn't operate nicely on such a small display.

I really liked the original HP minis that were made out of aluminum. I kinda wish they would go back ot that design, but with the Intel chips. I would also like to see them upgraded to 802.11n.

You do know that the 2140, and the upcoming 2150, is aluminum, right?

Also, the 2150 will be the same as the 2140, just with an added 3g slot, and SIM card holder.
