{double happiness}

Just as the lines between fashion and d├ęcor are often blurred, fashion and technology are becoming fast friends with HP and Vivienne Tam's recent collaboration on the digital clutch, a beautifully designed mini laptop with a 10-inch screen and red keyboard, all wrapped up in more red and strewn with peonies, a signature staple of the designer's Fall collection. The peonies are carried inside the notebook, under the keypad, which also features a special enter key that bears the Chinese symbol for double happiness and represents Tam's aim to live well and be beautiful.

I've been on hold for a MSI Wind fora few months now, but HP might just pull me away.

Oh dear... I had just come to grips with not buying myself any new toys for awhile and now I have something new to covet... thank goodness December is on the way. I suppose they will be sold out by then though, perhaps an early gift is in order... hmmmm

Brilliant post... you deserve an award for this one :)
