Great machine if you know the differences of netbook, laptop, desktop parts

Summary: For an atom netbook this little thing does what is expected from it. An atom 1.6ghz single core netbook processor is on par with some older intel 1.2ghz single core desktop processors so performance is what is expected and overclocking is possible with stability (if you know what youre doing) upwards of 2.0ghz and upgrading the max RAM to 3gb makes for a very powerful netbook, especially with the ION LE gpu which can be upgraded to the ION to have even a little more...
The Hewlett Packard Mini 311 is definitely worth the money!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Hewlett Packard Mini 311 is worth the money. I recently went on a trip and instead of taking my regular sized laptop which is larger, I took the mini. It was small enough to fit in my carry-on and easy to take out whenever I needed it. The keyboard is smaller, of course, but you easily adjust.
Excerpt: I have owned this computer for about 6 months and have never had problems with it. I usually run at least three programs at once, one of them being Facebook and/or my email through AOL. I am always doing internet research and am always able to access the web through this little work horse.
Excerpt: First off let me say that battery life is amazing. It can last 6+ hours of light use of just surfing the internet. The only con I can think of is that it can really sutter when it comes to streaming videos. Videos off a hard drive work fine though, it just can't handle the processing, though I think it is because Flash isn't great on mobile devices to begin with. If you upgrade the ram to three gigabytes, it helps out the performance quite a lot. If you don't good luck.
Excerpt: So ... I bought this netbook when I got a job with a 1.5 hrs (each way) train commute, thinking it would help me put the time to good use, giving me flexibility and pretty much constant Internet access. I did so with lots of warnings from techie friends, who told me the netbook would move slowly, and so on. I figured that since I would pretty much only use it for light web-browsing and email, I'd be okay.
Excerpt: I love my mini hp laptop would not change it for anything at all. I have no drive in it but i dont really need it at all. Really its awsome. Great size, sleek keyboard, its fun and great awsome sound system. I love how sound is on bottom of laptop long but yet large sound.First laptop I ever got and so in love with it. I take my mini laptop everywhere literlly. i love how the graphics are the best ever on this laptop. I can see and hear you tube which I'm a big fan of.
Excerpt: if you are looking for something that is easy to carry around, then this is the laptop for you. what is more extra nice about this hp mini laptop is that it has a wi-fi broadband installed in the laptop. which means you could be able to go to any starbucks and be able to be online. if you feel that everyone if bugging you at home and you are not able to do your homework..there are other places you could go to.
Summary: I went to JR looking for the ASUS Eee PC 1201N-PU17-BK 12.1" Seashell Netbook, but was sold out and I couldn't wait because I need it for an emergency trip to a disaster zone, so I got the HP The bad: battery life is very disappointing, no more than 3.5 hours connected to the internet (6.25 hours advertised); the speed is just fine for normal use, but it took me forever to install some software (like Office 2007 Pro); the pointing device (touchpad) is awful, sometimes...
Summary: Purchased this product for three reasons: Backup computer, 11'6 screen instead of 10", HDMI Port, Ram upgradable to 2 gigs; above all, XP OS. I am the most average of users. I do a lot of writing, surf the web for research purposes, love portabiity, and absolutely love to stream pro football off the internet onto my big screen tv. I did and do not need all of the bells and whistles offered in other more expensive computers. Nor do I require superfreak speed.
Pros: 2 GIGS ON THE RAM, Comfortable Keyboard, Compact, Fast, Good Battery Life
