Reviews for the HP Compaq Mini 311c

76% HP Mini 311
Source: Computer Shopper English
Based on Nvidia’s Ion graphics technology and featuring a nice 11.6-inch high-resolution display, the HP Mini 311 ($494.99 direct, at the time of our review) touts superior graphics performance and full high-definition display capabilities, a combination not usually associated with netbooks. While its graphics performance is certainly better than the average netbook's, it struggles to play 1080p-resolution content smoothly, and its keyboard, though spacious, could use an upgrade, as well. This stylish netbook, the first we've seen with Nvidia's Ion graphics, delivers better-than-average graphics speed and a swell screen. We'd like to see an improved keyboard and longer battery life, however.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


N270:

Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.

77.4%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
