Vivienne Tam Digital Clutch Notebook and HP Elitebook 2530p Up Close and Personal



vivientam 300x225 Vivienne Tam Digital Clutch Notebook and HP Elitebook 2530p Up Close and Personal



Last week we were drooling over the Vivienne Tam Digital Clutch Notebook that we just couldn’t wait to get our hands on! Well we didn’t have to wait too long. We had our chance to get up close and slightly personal with it last night. The pictures don’t do it justice and it really is even more beautiful in person. The peony design is striking but Vivienne is still putting the final touches on the keyboard, that we were not allowed to see. Its anticipated release will coincide with the Chinese New Year in January ’09 and it will be affordable according to HP. We can’t wait!

Another nice treat we spotted was the HP EliteBook 2530p, An ultraportable 3lb business laptop that manages to fit in an optical drive. It’s the perfect companion for any busy executive. Some of its features included a hardy shell that could withstand drops and falls, a built in LED light above the display to illuminate the keyboard, and a business card reader that transfers the information to your computer after you insert it into the business card reader slot. Pricing begins at around $1599.
