HP-Vivienne to create Eye-Catching Netbook with Beats Audio

HP and world-renowned designer Vivienne Tam announced availability of the latest in “digital clutch” chic.

The HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition made its runway design debut at New York Fashion Week as part of Tam's spring 2010 collection.

Combining Tam's stunning “Butterfly Lovers” design with premium PC technology, the HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition is poised to become the next must-have accessory. Starting at 2.7 pounds and less than 1-inch thin, it fits easily into purses or bags.

“As a fashion designer I have always found inspiration in bringing contrasting worlds together,” said Tam. “I use computers in every aspect of my life so it seemed natural to marry fashion and technology. Together with HP, we created this movement of fashionable tech accessories with the second-edition digital clutch.”

Partnering with Beats by Dr. Dre, HP has included high-performance audio software that enables listeners to experience music – through headphones or external speakers – the way artists intended. Previously Beats Audio was available only in the premium HP Envy notebook PC line.

Inspiration and design

Reflecting Tam's spring 2010 collection, the netbook design is inspired by the classic Chinese love story, “Butterfly Lovers,” a beautiful tale of freedom, romance and inspiration. Integrated directly into the netbook's lid using HP Imprint technology, the design is as durable as it is stunning.

The HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition also comes with a Butterfly Lovers desktop theme that includes an animated butterfly start menu, custom Vivienne Tam icons and three wallpapers to coordinate with the design.

HP has been at the forefront of fusing fashion and technology since unveiling the HP Mini Vivienne Tam digital clutch netbook on the catwalk of Tam's 2008 fashion show at New York Fashion Week in Bryant Park. Models walked down the runway in that show with the peony-adorned computer in hand, a first on an American runway.

What's inside

With an elegant design on the inside and out, the HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition features custom software to help fashionistas be efficient, stay connected and look their best while on the go:

The built-in webcam allows customers to create and upload videos, take snapshots and chat with friends over the web. With a click of a button, the webcam turns into an instant “mirror.”

HP QuickWeb, the company's instant-on software, lets users post to Facebook, send a tweet, listen to music, browse the web, check an appointment, send an email or chat in seconds – saving time usually spent waiting for the computer to fully boot.

Coordinated accessories that further complement the HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition include a matching microfiber suede sleeve, an optional Butterfly Lovers wireless mouse and Monster-branded in-ear headphones. The Vivienne Tam Mini comes in exclusive gift-box packaging to provide a premium experience.
