Vivienne Tam for HP Digital Clutch Spring 2010

Hot off the runway from Vivienne Tam's Spring 2010 collection comes the designers latest collaboration with HP. The mini notebook PC or "digital clutch" is a match made in heaven for anyone who wants to pair sleek style with technology on the go. You might remember that Tam did a similar collaboration back in 2008 with a Peony design netbook but as technology and fashion both move forward, here is a brand new design and a more powerful little notebook.

“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.”

Not only is the netbook beautiful but the it boasts a 5.5 hr battery life and super portable design at just 2.7 lbs and under 1" thick. It may be tiny, but it manages to have a 10.1" LED widescreen display and a keyboard that is 93% of the size of a standard notebook PC keyboard!

The HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition comes with 2GB of memory and large hard-drive options up to 320 GB, automatic backup software and Microsoft Windows 7 Premium. It also features a built-in webcam that converts to a mirror, HP QuickWeb, which 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. Finally, this laptop also features Beats by Dr. Dre, a high-performance audio software that enables listeners to experience the way music the sounds in a professional recording studio.
This notebook was designed at the same time as Tam's Spring 2010 collection and the butterfly motifs and gold tones perfectly match the prints and fabrication from the very 70s inspired collection. Also available for purchase are matching microfiber suede sleeve, an optional Butterfly Lovers wireless mouse and Monster-branded headphones.
