We all agree that the aluminum enclosure of the MacBook Pro looks great, but sometimes you really want to stand out from the crowd. Laptops are now judged heavily on their aesthetic characteristics, which reflect the tastes and values of their owners. Designed with the fashion-conscious consumer in mind, the HP mini 1000 Vivienne Tam Edition represents the first partnership between a computer company and a world-renowned fashion designer to personalize a product for the fashion-forward, trendsetting digital diva. Famous New York designer Vivienne Tam has put her artistic stamp of traditional Chinese art on this mini PC which integrates the latest in fashion and technology. Red, shiny, with a lively design of peony blooms that signify good fortune and prosperity, this laptop is sure to attract the tech-savvy fashionistas. The flowers are printed only on the top cover and have pink, lavender, purple and yellow shades, while the rest of the notebook, including the keyboard, is glossy red. With 10.1-inch high definition display, less than 1-inch thick, and weighing just 1.1 kg., the HP Mini 1000 Vivienne Tam Edition is both lightweight and ultra-portable. It's loaded with tech goodies such as mini webcam and built-in microphone, bluetooth and wireless networking, and a 60 GB hard drive which runs on Windows XP Home operating system powered by Intel Atom N270 (1.6 Hz) processor. There are also coordinated wallpaper graphics and accessories, including a matching protective sleeve. The HP Mini 1000 Vivienne Tam Edition comes with a matching embroidered storage sleeve that protects it as you carry it. At NIS 2,850 it's a bit pricy, but if you're into cool gadgets and fashion, this is the ultimate thing to impress your friends. ofer@jpost.com
