HP Mini Vivienne Tam Special Edition

HP and world-renowned fashion designer Vivienne Tam announced their partnership on a special edition HP Mini 1000 last September 2008 but that model has yet to land in the Philippines. It was out in other countries by December last year but HP will only launch it here in the Philippines this week.


The HP Mini Vivienne Tam Edition is mostly just a special paint job of the Mini 1000. The specs are still the old one — Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM, 80GB HDD, GMA950, WiFi and optional Bluetooth. The 10.1 inch screen only supports a native resolution of 1024×576 pixels. There’s a 2-in-1 card reader and the battery is just 3-cell with no upgrade options (according to the HP site). 



The price listed on the site is $700 (~Php35,000) so don’t expect this fashionable netbook to be within competition’s range. Besides, I think this one’s more like in the category of the Sony Vaio P.

HP Philippines will also be announcing two other netbooks (my hunch is the HP Mini Mi and the Mini 2140). More on this by the end of the week.

Update: Olyver Digg sent in the flyer from HP below. SRP is Php27,950.

  2. Olyver Digg says:

    it has already been introduced in our company (HP)last friday.. According to the email/poster, the SRP of the HP Mini Vivienne Tam Edition is 27,950… they are selling that netbook to HP employees with discounts…

  3. yuga says:

    @olyver – is that price the regular price or the discounted one already?

  4. Darren says:

    $35000 and $27950, there is big gap, geee~~

    BTW, I pretty agree the Vaio P like statement LOL

  5. Olyver Digg says:

    HP Philippines should have released this a few months back. Even releasing this on March would have made this competitive but right now, I am sure this product will flop big time.

    Not mentioning that it just halved its customer base with its girly design! :P

  7. oh yes, i agree with reel advice. this one has been released alongside with the mini 1000. few months after that comes mini 700(for compaq).

    what took this edition too long. it has been in the cyberpsace for 6months tapos ngayon lang dumating dito?

    if samsung would release their netbook here, cguro mas kikita yun.

    so if I sell a brand new HP mini for 25K pesos Intel Atom, 120gb harddisk, 1gb ram including Windows XP Home and External DVDRW, it will be fair enough?
