HP Mini 11.6" Mobile Broadband Netbook

Over 5 years ago, I bought a Mini 311 for a little over $300. It’s a decent little netbook, but… $180 for a refurbished laptop that was sluggish (that atom chip is no powerhouse) and not all that much more expensive 5+ years ago? Really, really struggling to see the value here…

if i could turn back time…


Found out there’s a bios hack to overclock it. Apparently that makes it fast enough to play a game like Fallout.

Does this require a contract for the broadband? If so, what’s the monthly price?

You can use it wirelessly without a data plan. If you want 3G connectivity, then you’ll need to sign-up with Verizon. You can check locally for your costs.
