M.I.S.S. Techcessories: HP Mini 110 by Studio Tord Boontje


HP and designer laptops go together like Mork and Mindy, Laverne and Shirley, or Thelma and Louis.  This time they’ve paired up with Studio Tord Boontje on a limited edition HP Mini 110.  This HP Mini 110 features all the standards fixings, including an Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM, Windows 7, and a 160GB 5,400rpm hard drive, but you and I both know the real reason to buy this is because it ups the Mini 110s pretty factor a bajillion fold.  Gone is the boring, standard black case, in its place a gleaming white one that would almost have you thinking you were carrying around a Windows equipped MacBook.  The lid is the real showstopper, though, sporting an intricate 3D plants and animals pattern from the aforementioned Studio Tord Boontje.  Featuring the debut of HP’s new Imprint 3D surface technology, at first glance it looks just like any other run-of-the-mill intricate design.  Look a little bit closer, however,  and you’ll see that multiple layers on the top are used to bring unprecedented depth to the art, making it look like its floating on the surface and casting shadows onto lower layers.  Best of all, unlike the Vivienne Tam netbooks launched earlier this year, the Tord Boontje doesn’t command a premium and costs a mere $399.  Might be a good post holiday gift for yourself or someone who you know hasn’t filled their fashionable laptop quota this year.
