HP’s latest designer edition netbook is scheduled to ship on March 19th, with pre-orders starting today. The netbook features a butterfly motif which was designed by Vivienne Tam, the same fashion designer that partnered with HP on one of the first ever designer edition netbooks.
HP has been teasing us with the new new “Butterfly Lovers” design since September, long before the HP Mini 210 was officially launched.
In addition t o the designer lid, desktop wallpaper and optional matching wireless mouse, the new HP Mini 210 “Butterfly Lovers” has a few other perks. It has 2GB of RAM, a 320G hard drive, and runs Windows 7 Home Premium rather than the Windows 7 Starter Edition that normally hobbles 10 inch netbooks.
But those extra features are going to cost you. While a standard HP Mini 210 starts at just $280, the Butterfly version will run you about $600.
The netbook has a 1024 x 600 pixel display and a battery which HP claims is good for up to 5.5 hours of run time.
There’s no mention of the new Vivienne Tam netbook on the HP website yet, but you can pr-order one from Amazon for $599.99.
