Crave giveaway of the day: HP Mini 311 Netbook

From now until Christmas, we'll be giving away a prize a day on Crave (expect for weekends and holidays). Today's prize: An HP Mini 311 Netbook.

Win an HP Mini 311 Netbook!

We're quickly heading toward the finish line of our daily Crave holiday giveaway extravaganza and to kick off the week we have a nice prize courtesy of the folks at HP: The HP Mini 311 Netbook.

I've personally had my eye on this one because it has Nvidia's Ion graphics, which give you HD video and basic gaming capabilities. And laptop guru Dan Ackerman says in his four-star review, "HP's Mini 311 adds a larger, high-definition display and advanced graphics to a basic Netbook, while keeping the price very appealing." (Read the full review).

We'd like to thank HP for offering up this prize and also want to give a shout out to Shopper.com for helping out with the Crave giveaway. Shopper.com powers CNET's price-comparison engine and it's a great site for finding the best prices on products. (See all of Shopper's deals, coupon codes, and rebates).

Normally, the HP Mini 311 would cost you about $399, but you have the chance to get it gratis.

So, how do you try to win this Mini 311 Netbook? Let me enumerate the basic rules. Please read them carefully; there will be a test.
