The Hello Kitty Laptop

The Associated Press reports that NEC Corporation, a Japan based Information Technologies Company, has decorated a pink laptop with Hello Kitty, Japan's famous cat.

This was done in an effort to attract more working women. Shinya Hashizume, the company's spokesman, said that they are hoping to attract women with the product since PC users are mostly men.

The Laptop was developed with the help of Sanrio Co., the creator of Hello Kitty. Dubbed as the La Vie G Hello Kitty Model, the laptop features Hello Kitty with a pink bow and crown in the middle, surrounded by four hearts on top of the notebook, all decorated with 299 Swarovski crystals from Austria.

The La Vie G Hello Kitty has a Windows Vista operating system, 100 GB hard disk drive, 1 GB of memory, and is powered with a 1.4 GHZ AMD Mobile Sempron 3400 processor. It also has ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 graphics, DVD super drive, a card reader, and a 1280 x 800 WXGA display. It weighs around 3.3 kg and measures 360×260×36.6~48mm. The La Vie G went on sale last Wednesday with a price tag of $1,650. It is only available through internet order in Japan.
