Laptops have undergone a lot of development over the years. The “rebranding” and relaunching” of the tech, no greater than within the last half a decade or so, which has seen a transformation from “tool” to “cool”. Whilst many suggest the Apple Mac is the height of design; some PC makers would have us think differently.
Heading this list; and really specializing in the design of laptops as an accessory are Tulip Computers from The Netherlands. Their range is extensive; whether your want is a crocodile skin handbag, or something in leather, with luxury car brand Bentley’s logo adorning it.
However, the real pinnacle of Tulip design is probably the Tulip E-Go Diamond, complete with solid palladium white gold plates, set into which are brilliant cut diamonds. Such is the decadence of the piece, the total weight is a rather mind boggling eighty carats!
If that is still not enough for you, the Tulip logos being set with a square cut ruby What Other Jobs Can Electricians Do is the final self-indulgent flourish to this piece of lusted for mobile gadgetry.
More mainstream companies are getting in on the act too, notably Hewlett Packard. The powerhouse has, in association with Vivienne Tam, designed a line of notebook laptops with the Chinese fashion designer’s signature peony designs upon them. Styled much like clutch handbags, it is very “Sex in the City”.
The designer has also designed accessories; such as matching sleeves for the notebook laptops, and it looks set to be a partnership that HP will build upon, and possibly open up to other designers for men as well as women.
If however this all seems small beer, then perhaps the latest limited edition laptops being designed by Luvaglio would be to your liking. Unlikely to be available to most however, it is set to be priced at the rather exclusive price of a cool million dollars.
For that, you can expect to get a self cleaning seventeen inch widescreen display, Blu-Ray and 128GB solid state hard disk. No other details have been released to the public; with the Italian luxury house only selling to invited clientele.
Of course, these are only a selection of designer laptops available and, you can expect more affordable and accessible options to be appearing in stores over the next few years. Indeed, Wiring Wire it surely will not be too long before all mainstream retailers and manufacturers are hooking up with designers to present their own alternatives, as being pioneered by Acer and Dell.
