In Living Color

If you want to place blame on someone, kittens, by all means, please let it be on Elle Woods. After all, she’s the one I hold responsible for the entire debacle. If not for seeing her purchase a tantalizing tangerine hued Apple iBook computer in the film Legally Blonde I probably would have been completely content with a plain black or silver one; something extremely bland, but undoubtedly functional. After I was exposed to color, however, it was impossible to go back to blah when I could have beautiful. I’ll tell it to you straight loves; I searched high and low for that pumpkin-colored pretty. I scoured websites and browsed stores for ages, eager to make it mine; but when I finally found it, it was out of my price range, and soon after, it was gone altogether. Never again have I seen a laptop that tickled my fancy in such a way; until now. The Mini 10 NetbooksDell coupons – are the new apple of my technology-loving eye.

Now I know what you’re thinking; you are under the impression that I selected this particular piece to fancy all because I can have my pick of any color in the rainbow (red, pink, green, blue…) but that’s simply not the truth at all; or at least not the whole truth. Yes, I am convinced that everyone is more creative when color is involved; but I truly do adore the Mini 10 Netbooks because they put the world at my fingertips at a price that doesn’t knock the wind out of me. And, you know, they are quite pretty. But, I suppose, that’s beside the point.

With the Mini 10 Netbook I can fulfill my dreams of blogging from anywhere and everywhere. Today I may be boasting about a new pair of boots while flying over Brazil; tomorrow I may be chattering on about the newest addition to my cocktail ring collection from some secluded sidewalk café in New York City’s Chinatown. The truth of the matter is, darlings, with the Mini 10, I could be talking to you from locations where you’d least expect me to pop up. The only identifier of my…character? My bubblegum pink computer, of course; oui, if I have concluded anything during all this it’s that my computer, like myself, must be pretty in pink.

Which color catches your eye, dolls?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Dell for the pictures.

Leah said...

Absolutely pink... did you get your Mini 10 netbook? I'm totally envious. I can't justify the purchase because I'm forever complaining about small screens. But I wish I can have a pink Mini 10 too.

Couture Carrie said...

Ooooooh they are all so fabulous, but I think if I had to choose just one, it would be the blue!

the apple green!

dot said...

Pink. Absolutely. I'm usually a blue girl but for a laptop, if mine wasn't silver (powerbook: I have to use mac for my work and also, I'm a mac girl tried & true) but if I could pick a colour, it would have to be bubblegum pink.

So psychic: I was just tagging you for a style inspiration award you commented! Thank you! It's on my side bar.

Eva Internazionale said...

All of them! They're gorgeous.

Dina's Days said...

I don't care if I'm 25, I'd still pick pink. Perhaps red also. HP also has some very cute colorful laptops with prints and florals on them also. I ended up getting a bronze

Femke said...

Well, I´d go for the pink one... That one is soo adorable. But the blue one is also nice! :)

meraldia said...

I love the idea of buying a 'colorful' netbook! I currently use a booooooring laptop and it's difficult for me to blog when I am out of town. I would choose the green one!

Jaime said...

These are so cute! I love the green :)

All Women Stalker said...

Oh choosing a color was my BIGGEST problem when I was buying a netbook earlier this year. I wanted pink (yes, blame Elle Woods) but the there was a dark red one that was also great. I ended up with white a white Asus Eee 1000H. :D

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I've had my eye on these for a while...the pink one is my favorite, of course. :)

I've also been dreaming about this laptop as well. http://www.designboom.com/weblog/cat/8/view/3891/hp-special-edition-laptop-by-vivienne-tam.html
But I'm not sure if I can afford it right now...sigh.

The Anthology said...

You're torturing me! I need a new computer but I'm desperately trying to postpone buying one. And this isn't helping at all.

rachel said...

Looove the pink. And I'm not even a pink kinda girl.

Fashion Court said...

OMG i LOVE elle woods! i neeeeed that laptop...

Sherin said...

Very few things in life beat a coloured laptop! I'm liking the red one.

Emily said...

they came out with the colored ones right after I got my silver laptop! I would probably go with the blue or green :] And of course the pink is nice too!

Luinae said...

Pink is the best in my opinion- and it would really match my room, it's yellow.

Patty Ann said...

I'm one for classics I have to say. Black just seems so nice and clean. But if I HAD to pick a "colour" colour, I'd go with the green. Apparently, Dell's hinges break really easily, and it costs a crap-load of money to replace them. I re-searched for a while before I bought my laptop.
Anywho, lovely post! :)
Yeah, Azura Skye was perfect in Buffy I think. :)
