Netbook Review: HP Mini 311

4 March 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.

  • 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.

  • Summary: You'll notice that the specifications here are somewhat more advanced than on the Mini 311 that shipped back before Windows 7 was out; the 2GB of RAM is a welcome addition, as is the Ion GPU and spacious 11.6" display.

  • Cons: 1.6GHz Atom N270 Is Aged, 5400RPM HDD Is Sluggish, Preinstalled Bloatware, Lackluster Trackpad, Very Glossy Display, Pricey
