More or less about new technology, science and innovations. With digressions

OK, it’s not a big secret that I am quite girly about gadgets. Of course, they mus be functional, user friendly and reasonably equipped but they also must be pretty. And I admit that sometimes that last factor can be most important. For example – when it comes to the new HP MiniNote 1000, designed by Vivienne Tam. The new “digital clutch” has been presented during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Bryant Park last weekend.

As you probably remember this is the second product of HP created by Tam. The previous one was red and painted in floral-like patterns. I have opportunity to play with it for some time and it was quite nice experience.

The new edition of girly MiniNote is golden and instead of flowers you will find nice butterflies on the cover. Tam has proved that there is no need  to use huge amounts of pink/red and flowers to make some gadget attractive to women . IMHO the new design is really good, more calm and delicate than the previous vibrant and energetic proposition.
Although the specs of the computer haven’t been revealed yet, you should expect a typical netbook stuff and Intel Atom inside.
