Measuring approximately 10.5″ long x 6.5″ wide x 1″ thick, this 2.5 pound gem is packed with all the features one might want in a mini laptop. No, you wouldn’t use it for massive Photoshop projects or editing movies, but it would be the perfect coffee shop companion when checking email, surfing, working on your blog, or chatting over the integrated webcam. There’s even an option to get built-in 3G Broadband through Verizon or AT&T.

The keyboard is a striking and gorgeous red with gold; this is a huge difference from the typical black and white or silver and black keys I am so used to seeing!

Included in the box you also get a silky Vivienne Tam laptop sleeve, which looks like a clutch I might carry on an evening out. To totally push the whole package over the edge of loveliness, I also received a matching Vivienne Tam wireless mouse.

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
