HP Mini 311 to get full Ion chip, 80GB SSD

HP Mini 311 docs show Ion, storage boosts

HP's Mini 311 is already slated to get a performance upgrade if the company's own service manual reflects the real product. The current version is limited to the lower-power Ion LE graphics core as well as 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive, but myHPMini has discovered that the manual references the full-power Ion chip as well as configurations with 2GB or 3GB of RAM. Storage would likewise get a boost with an option of a much faster 80GB SSD as well as 250GB or 320GB hard drives.

With the exception of the SSD, all of the features are contingent on having a system equipped with Windows 7, which itself will come in 32-bit Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium or Professional editions. The warning suggests HP plans to significantly expand the Mini 311's options sometime after October 22nd, when 7 will likely replace Windows XP as the default OS on the netbook. [via Netbooked]

    Now if they would just get rid of the reflective black bezel and glossy screen, it could be a great netbook!
