Was checking out the specs on the first ion netbook to hit the market, the hp mini 311. Base configuration is the standard n270 atom chip, 1 gig of ram, windows xp and 160 gig hard drive, but it can take up to 3 gigs of ddr3 ram, run windows 7 adequately, and has nvidia 9400 graphics. Comes standard with a 6 cell battery for extended battery life, hd screen, hdmi output and usable keyboard. Pictures of it don't look too bad. Folks in the osx86 community have reported that they've gotten it to run os x. At a starting price of $399, I'm tempted. I'm also wondering how close this is to the 12" ibook/powerbook form factor that I've always loved. I'd like to seek the consensus of the collective on this one. Thanks.
