You can order the HP mini 311 right now.

------------------

I would also like to know if the ion platform is linux compatible.

I'm really interested in the "netbooks" that come with a SU4100 intel processor and 4500HD intel graphics. From what I can gather the ion is much better than the 4500HD graphics wise, but the SU4100 is much better than the atom processor.

There's a thread here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1321076) about the HP mini 311.

Looks promising for people planning to squeeze more video power out of a netbook. Still, if the graphics run anywhere nearly as smooth as the integrated video on this Dell Mini 10v, then I think people will be satisfied. Anything better would surely make this a worthwhile upgrade for gamers or video-processing junkies.

I'm also very curious as to how these run. I might swap my mini for it if they sell it with a version of Linux on it, then tell you guys. However, I suspect there will be a reasonable Linux review of it by the time I get that done.

I've replaced my desktop system with an Acer Aspire Revo r3610 which is the 64bit capable dual core ATOM 330 chip with SMT combined with the nvidia ION platform.

It is a beautiful system in use, it always seems to have a little extra to give - except when playing HD content as I still haven't worked out how to get VDPAU working and frankly I am happy waiting for it to just work as time goes by.

Dual core atom? That's hot.
Are you able to run any 3D games? On the EEE forums, users have apparently managed to get quite a few 3D games up and running in linux, but of course that's intel and not nvidia.
