Takara has taken one step ahead in offering its military styled gadgets by announcing the new limited edition TYPE-NO1 laptop in collaboration with NEC. The military-styled laptop comes along with loads of token stickers, labels, and wallpapers to give the devilish machine a customized look. However, underneath the military rugged make, the machine is a Lavie G type L notebook rocking a 15′ display with 1280×800 resolution, AMD Mobile Sempron 3200+ or Turion 64 X2 TL-50 CPU, a Multi DVD burner, and WiFi. Sensing that AMD processor, I doubt you will need more than one machine to conquer a territory.
‘ShieldPRO’ What this new laptop by NEC presents is a rugged design that has the ability to with stand extreme abuse that you will not even think of giving to a normal laptop.

Ever thought about a pink laptop? Well, it’s here! Recently, NEC has released a very ladies friendly pink laptop: the model christened as HELLO KITTY. The KITTY model is currently being sold for 199,500 YEN in Japan which is US $1,650 or euro 1,200. Laptops have come a long ways, however, the ladies have mostly tried to stay away from the technology. I think NEC tried to make this laptop more female friendly by making it all pink. Company spokesman Shinya Hashizume agrees with this idea:PC users now tend to be men, but we’re hoping to attract women with this product HELLO KITTY range of products have been previously popular with the kids. NEC joined hands with HELLO KITTY to make this laptop. Both the companies together packed the following features with this laptop: 100 gigs of Harddrive space 1 gig of RAM The laptop uses 299 Swarovski crystals to make four hearts. I think this is a great idea and will certainly lure the geeky girls. So this summer, think pink with your pink laptop!
