Some Quick Updates, Mini 311 and More

 Some Quick Updates, Mini 311 and MoreFirst of all I want to say thank-you to everyone that has come to the site, and used our Mac OS X guides as well as to those that have donated to MyMacBookMini. This past month has brought quite a bit of news.

The HP Mini 311 series was announced in back in September, released mid-September and did not ship out until earlier this month.

It comes with an NVidia ION graphics platform, which has raised a whole lot of questions about whether or not Mac OS X will be operable.

Good news is that the Mac OS X will work on the HP Mini 311 series. There has been a whole lot of testing and “hacking” going on at InsanelyMac and MyHPMini forums. At MyHPMini, forum member superviza has almost every feature working except for sound.

We are trying to find some HP Mini 311 users to help us put together a guide for everyone to you. If you have installed Mac OS X, please contact us and let us know!

Other ways that you can help:

We are on twitter at @mymacbookmini, so check us out and follow us there.

Donate to MyMacBookMini by clicking the “ChipIn” widget to the right side. All donations will go towards guides, support and hosting. One possible goal is to raise enough to get an HP Mini 311 or other add-ons such as OS X compatible WiFi modules for testing.

Here’s an unboxing video for those who speak French and also for those who don’t as you can also get a lot of info of what the machine feels like in this. Courtesy of blogeee.net.

New HP Mini’s Coming Soon?

According to articles at Liliputing and MyHPMini, there might be new HP Mini models in the makings…the HP Mini 210 and 311, as well as Compaq 210 and 311. Its not for sure if there will be new models, but chances are very good.

Little information is actually know right now and nothing will be official until it comes from HP themselves…

The real question is: what will the “insides” be like and how will that affect installing Mac OS X? Will it be easier to install? Will it even install?
