Hello Kitty Laptop, the Cuter Computer
With kids glomming onto computers and the Internet at ever-younger ages, the line between toys and practical electronics continues to blur. Case in point: the new 'Hello Kitty EPSON wide note' laptop computer, due to be released on May 28. Whether you're 5, 15, 25 or older, this feature-packed laptop has enough bells & whistles to make even the most techno-savvy kitty freak geek purr with joy!
Epson already markets a similar laptop, the Endeavor NH2100. Their collaboration with Sanrio will match the NH2100's impressive specs with the a kit & caboodle of Hello Kitty eye candy to ensure the requisite quota of oohs & ahhs from Japan's legion of cute-loving females.
The Hello Kitty EPSON wide note may be used by kids, but it's anything but child's play. Check out these impressive specs:
Intel Celeron 540 (1.86GHz) CPU
DVD-ROM/CD-RW compo driveIEEE 802.11b/g wireless LAN
It comes pre-loaded with Windows Vista® Home Premium Service Pack 1 and Norton Internet Security 2008OEM. There's nothing toy-like about the price, either - 147,000 yen or $1,410 at the latest exchange rate.
You can also opt for extra-cost accessories such as a couple of Hello Kitty mouse & mousepad combos, and a USB memory cellphone strap with connector. Available at the usual Japanese electronics stores or online at the Sanrio website.
