So I'm in the market for a new net book. There are so many cute ones out now but this one literally takes the biscuit for the prettiest computer I have ever seen!(Palpitating!!) I have a bit of a thing for butterfly's, and I cannot think of anything better than having them on my net book! Seriously though imagine toting this under your arm! Eh DREAM!! It's so beautiful! I think I am going to have to start saving my pennies now for it! I've always been a Dell girl, but I am dying to try this one out and would love to give it a whirl! Here is some of the press release I received with a bit more info for you techno lovers....
Combining Tam’s stunning “Butterfly Lovers” design (it is stunning!!) with premium PC technology, the HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition is poised to become the next must-have accessory. Starting at 1.22 kilograms and less than 3.0 cm, it fits easily into purses or bags.“As a fashion designer I have always found inspiration in bringing contrasting worlds together,” said Tam. “I use computers in every aspect of my life so it seemed natural to marry fashion and technology. Together with HP, we created this movement of fashionable tech accessories with the second-edition digital clutch.” Partnering with Beats™ by Dr. Dre™, HP has included high-performance audio software that enables listeners to experience music – through headphones or external speakers – the way artists intended. Reflecting Tam’s spring 2010 collection, the netbook design is inspired by the classic Chinese love story, “Butterfly Lovers,” a beautiful tale of freedom, romance and inspiration. Integrated directly into the netbook’s lid using HP Imprint technology, the design is as durable as it is stunning. The HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition also comes with a Butterfly Lovers desktop theme that includes an animated butterfly start menu, custom Vivienne Tam icons and three wallpapers to coordinate with the design. HP has been at the forefront of fusing fashion and technology since unveiling the HP Mini Vivienne Tam digital clutch netbook on the catwalk of Tam’s 2008 fashion show at New York Fashion Week in Bryant Park. Models walked down the runway in that show with the peony-adorned computer in hand, a first on an American runway.
With an elegant design on the inside and out, the HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition features custom software to help fashionistas be efficient, stay connected and look their best while on the go:
— The built-in webcam allows customers to create and upload videos, take snapshots and chat with friends over the web. With a click of a button, the webcam turns into an instant “mirror.”
— HP QuickWeb, the company’s instant-on software, lets users post to Facebook, send a tweet, listen to music, browse the web, check an appointment, send an email or chat in seconds – saving time usually spent waiting for the computer to fully boot.
Coordinated accessories that further complement the HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition include a matching microfiber suede sleeve and an optional Butterfly Lovers wireless mouse. The Vivienne Tam Mini comes in exclusive gift-box packaging to provide a premium experience.
The HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition is the ideal companion PC for the highly mobile, internet-centric fashionista (ME!!), providing freedom and fun with up to 5.5 hours of battery time. It has a 25.65 cm diagonal LED Brightview infinity display and a keyboard that is 93 percent of the size of a standard notebook PC keyboard. The HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition comes with two gigabytes (GB) of memory and large hard-drive options up to 320 GB, automatic backup software and Microsoft Windows® 7 Premium.
The HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition will also be available at retail stores across EMEA. The HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition is expected to be available at the end of March with a starting price of £449. The Butterfly Lovers themed HP Wireless Mouse is expected to be available at the end of March priced at £34.99.
