I am currently limboing between this model and the Hp mini 311.
Those two are the only Ion netbooks I could find available at the moment.
I noticed for the same price I could get the HP mini 311 which includes
the os(which isn't much of a sell point for me) and 1 gig ram.
the hp mini comes with the 1gig ram(DDR3) soldered on to the mobo however heard that it has a terrible CL11 or something, with the possibility of adding another 2gig ddr3 stick to make the total ram 3gig.
Is the POV ion netbook also DDR3?
I noticed that the barebone model had no ram in it as well.
Also is the ion chip inside the ION LE or full fledged ION?
