Netbook review: HP Mini 311 with NVIDIA ION accelerated graphics

The HP Mini 311 is the first US netbook to feature NVIDIA ION graphics. That means accelerated 3D graphics and video which translates to a netbook than can finally handle iTunes video playback, DVD quality movie playback and even HD video. Not only that, it's a decent gamer if you can live without Crysis and make do with F.E.A.R. 2. The Mini 311 comes with Windows XP (Windows 7 will be available come Oct. 22), an 11.6" LED display, the usual Intel Atom N270 1.66GHz CPU, an HDMI port, a 160 gig hard drive and a gig of DDR3 RAM that's upgradable to 3 gigs.

This full review includes a video of the Mini 311 playing F.E.A.R. 2 and another video demonstrating iTunes SD/HD video playback, YouTube HQ playback and ripped DVD playback.
