This 1-inch thin, 5.18 lb. 2 PC is a beauty, but it’s also a beast as it takes on the most demanding tasks – from video editing to intense gaming – with the latest Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor. 3 A 15.6-inch diagonal HP Ultra BrightView widescreen display and a powerful graphics processor produce clear, breathtaking visuals for viewing Blu-ray4 and 1080p (full HD5) content.

The Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor3 lets you stream Blu-ray4 movies or play them back from the design-matched external optical drive.

Look marvelous with an HP Mini

The new HP Mini 110 by Studio Tord Boontje is the first companion PC from HP to reflect the artistic vision of the critically acclaimed Dutch designer. With a floral- and fauna-inspired design, it features the industry’s first 3-dimensional PC surface technology: HP Imprint 3D finish. Multiple layers on the top cover make the art appear to float on the surface, while casting shadows onto lower layers.

With Windows® 77 Starter, this HP Mini can be personalized with 15 wallpapers, a screen saver and a Stardock MyColors desktop theme – all unique to this product and designed by Boontje to deliver an integrated visual experience.
