The thin, blurry line…

Is it a netbook, or is it a laptop? The line blurs again with the upcoming HP Mini 311c. Looking at a few of the published online retailer specs, it will be a netbook-laptop with an 11.6 inch screen, and the new NVIDIA ION (LE?) chipset.

According to Notebook Italia, the laptop dimensions are  11.4″ x 8″ x 1.2″ and it will weigh in at 3.2 pounds. A 6 cell battery will be included, and the 11.6 inch display will have a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.  No cost for the machine in the US has been published yet, but European & UK pricing suggests a US retail price of about $500 (based on current currency conversion rates).  HP may well have a lower price in mind for the US market to keep it competitive.
