Everyone knows the downside to buying consumer electronics in Europe: you pay outrageous premiums for everything and put up with customer service right out of Are you being served? Oftentimes they do, however, get better stuff earlier. Take, for example, Britain’s Compaq’s Mini 700, to be sold there with an optional HSDPA modem and a 10-inch display. It’s clearly a cut of HP’s Mini 1000–and one they don’t seem to have plans to offer stateside.

Even the price is right, this time, at least by European standards: £299, or about $500.
