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.

Nokia Booklet 3G Eh?

I know this has little to nothing at all to do with HP but there’s this news or perhaps just rumors about Nokia releasing its own iteration of a new gadget that’s definitely got the makings of a netbook.

So the question is: Will HP now make a mobile phone?

Of course I was just kidding. The real question is: Can this Nokia Booklet 3G be OSX-ified?
