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).Â
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 theÂ 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.
