Amazon is offering the HP 8.9-inch Mini-Note PC for just $299.99 shipped, originally priced at $499.99. On the inside, you’ll find that it’s “powered by the VIA C7-M ULV processor, which provides a 1.0 GHz clock speed and excellent power management capabilities.” Product page. Video after the break.

And because it uses solid state hard drive memory instead of a spinning hard disk drive (with 4 GB of storage), the Mini-Note is optimal for weathering rough handling and sharing space in overstuffed bags.
