Hey everyone,

I am wanting to purchase a netbook and have been looking at the HP Mini 311 series and the Lenovo S12. I like them both since they both have slightly larger screens and resolutions and the dedicated graphic chips.

The HP does not specify if the ION chip is ION LE or the full blown ION on the hp.com site, compared to the Lenovo which says it is the NVIDIA ION with 256mb dedicated video memory. Also I am wondering how the keyboard and trackpad are for both. This is a pretty big deal I think on some of the netbooks and on alot of netbooks quality in trackpad and keyboard is overlooked.

So basically I want to try and get some opinions which netbook is better and higher quality.

There is a deal right now for the Lenovo S12 (link below) making it about 50 bucks cheaper than the HP Mini 311 with the same stuff.

Thanks!!!

PS, I need this very soon so I cannot wait for any other models or releases.

Im in the same situation.

Researched everything, waiting for benchmarks on 311 vs s12.

Looks like Samsung is dropping the ball on the n510 - havent seen any information on that since September.

Another person in the same situation, trying to decide between the 2, most important factors for me are video playback (HD 720p mainly) and battery life
