Pink netbooks are nothing new. MSI, Acer, Dell, and Asus have all released mini-laptops with pink lids and/or bodies as part of their netbook lineups. And if you like a pink laptop, or somehow believe that the color makes your notebook less likely to be stolen, good for you.
But the thing I don’t get it companies trying to tie pink laptops into Valentine’s Day. Because really, who gives their loved one a computer as a Valentine’s Day present? Look, I’m not saying that computers can’t be romantic gifts. I gave my wife a printer one year because she needed a new one but it hadn’t really occured to her to buy one herself. She appreciated the thought I put into the gift. But she thought the MSI Wind Valentine Edition was one of the stupidest things she’d ever seen.
Anyway, Samsung is launching a new pink model of its NC10 netbook, which should ship on February 9th, just in time for Valentine’s Day. If you plan on buying one, do me a favor and wait until March? We can’t encourage this kind of behavior by netbook makers.
