Netbook Review: HP Mini 311

4 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Another enjoyable feature, though not a plus-sized one, is the Mini's keyboard. A fraction smaller than desktop size -- the A through apostrophe keys span 7.5 instead of 8 inches -- it offers an intuitive layout (with Ctrl and Delete keys in their respective proper places at bottom left and top...

maximum pc
5 February 2010
  • Excerpt: To say that netbooks have historically been hobbled by Intel’s integrated graphics is to unfairly ignore their slow single-core CPUs, 1GB RAM maximum, miniscule keyboards, and awkward screen resolutions.
  • Pros: Current-gen graphics; great screen; HDMI out; 1366x768 res; good build; supports up to 3GB DDR3.
  • Cons: Mushy keyboard; still stuck with single-core Atom processor.

PC Magazine
13 January 2010
  • Conclusion: The Mini 311 offers moderate gaming and HD playback benefits, but they're not compelling enough to beat out other top netbook contenders.
  • Pros: Better graphics than Intel-based netbooks. Big 11.6-inch widescreen. Good resolution. HDMI-Out port included.
  • Cons: Keyboard is only 92 percent of full size. Mouse buttons are noisy. ION can't handle high-end games and didn't deliver on 1080p playback.

Review: HP Mini 311 netbook

4 December 2009
  • Excerpt: It shouldn’t surprise anyone that HP’s Mini 311 is an excellent netbook. For this model HP took what they learned with the very good Mini 1000/110, translated it to an 11-inch platform, and then dropped in Nvidia’s ION.

HP Mini 311

14 October 2009
  • Conclusion: The HP Mini 311 is the first netbook with the NVIDIA ION chipset and graphics, which earns it praise and a smidgen of reservation. It's a great machine for the price and the graphics performance makes video playback other than high quality Flash video pleasant and gaming is a go.
  • Pros: NVIDIA ION fast graphics., A solid machine for the money with really impressive graphics performance for a netbook. Good battery life for a machine with this kind of graphics power and an 11.6" display. Runs quiet and cool.
  • Cons: Windows 7 graphics performance better for video but a little worse for gaming., Gaming performance currently takes a small hit under Windows 7. Screen isn't terribly color-saturated nor does it have high good contrast. Screen glare is distracting. Neither a restore CD nor a restore partition come...
