My HP 311 went back in the mail today!

Well, it could've been a nice machine except for:
  • Suspend would reboot the machine.
  • USB Whitelist - Only HP Approved devices can be used. This prevents my pl2303 usb serial adapter from working, as well as any wireless 3g modems.
  • Nvidia Ion LE - The Mini 311 is marketed with Nvidia Ion, but comes with the less capable Ion LE.
So back it went to HP. HP does not refund the original shipping (to you), but in this case it all worked out because they offered free shipping right before Christmas.
