HP will be the first to break the mold with its HP Mini 311 netbook. Based on the Mini 311’s service guide, buyers will be able to upgrade their netbooks from junky to halfway decent, with up to 2 extra GB of RAM, a 320 GB hard drive, an 80 GB state drive, the full NVidia ION platform for graphics acceleration and either Windows 7 Starter, Basic, Premium of Professional. The service guide is just a manual for installing your own upgrades to an existing computer. So this news doesn’t necessarily mean HP will start selling these improvements directly. And even if they were available off the bat, there’s no word on price. [via Engadget]
