HP buys Via nano processors, but for which laptop?

Despite Intel's barrage with its Atom architecture, Via has managed to land a contract with HP for its nano low-power CPU. To be fair, the Via nano is actually good and has surpassed Intel's Atom in many performance benchmarks, even if Atom is lower power. Now, we don't yet know what HP will do with these CPUs. Is it for a successor of the HP mini-note 2133? Only time will tell.
