Posted by at 12:45 pm on March 4, 2010

HP and Vivienne Tam have 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 might just become the next must-have accessory. Starting at 2.7 pounds and less than 1-inch thin, it is designed to fit 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.”

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.

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.
