Vivian Tam has company. HP has just introduced a brand new fashion netbook, this time designed by Studio Tord Boontje. The pattern is applied in multiple layers – the more you look, the more you see. HP calls it “HP Imprint 3D” and the “industry’s first three-dimensional surface technology.” It’s actually a pretty cool effect. Think of the old Apple iBooks with the clear shell with a pattern on the case, a pattern on the inside of the plastic, and a pattern on the front of the plastic shell and you can sort of picture the HP Imprint 3D. What’s the pattern? A design of of plant life and endangered animals is on this white-on-white artwork. There are also 15 wallpapers included designed by Tord Boontje. The Vivian Tam HP was criticized for a high price tag. That won’t happen here. The HP Mini 110 by Studio Tord Boontje will start at $399. There will also be a line of companion mice and bags to match the design.
