Vivienne Tam Edition HP mini

Posted in Design, Fashion, Gadgets / Gear by Michelle on September 2, 2010

I went to B&H Photo and Video to do some research. Recently, I’ve been really wanting a PC netbook. I’m a MacBook user but it’s a bit  heavy. I’m too lazy to lug it around with me – to the living room that is… among other places. At the moment, Apple does not offer a cute little netbook, which is such a bummer. So, I figure that a PC netbook is my best bet. I’ve been researching for weeks on best battery life, processor speed, webcam, video quality, etc. Then, I came upon the Vivienne Tam HP mini and its’ specs sheet…

– 2 gHz… uh-huh.
– 2 Gb Ram… oooooo, nice.
– 250 Gb memory… just what I need.
– 3-cell battery… eh, I can always replace that, I guess.
– Matching Vivienne Tam sleeve… perfect!

I looked around. The specs looked great against the basic HP minis. I stood there for a very long time, playing around with it. Examining. Everytime I walked away and tried other netbooks, I always came back to the Vivienne Tam HP mini. Despite my aversion to butterflies, I was convinced that I had to buy this adorable netbook. I think it was the well-designed gold keyboard that did it for me. I’m kind’ve in love with gold machinery. Just read my previous posts. And the mini is so streamlined and pleasing to the eye, reminiscent to Apple’s product designs – something that I don’t want to give up.

I really miss the Mac OS X, though. I downloaded Safari, iTunes, and Quicktime through Apple’s website. It totally helps. I used Internet Explorer for the first 10 min and just looking at it gave me anxiety – way too much going on. I uninstalled some preloaded programs for the same reason…  But, overall I’m definitely enjoying my pretty new toy.
