With New York Fashion Week right around the corner, I’ve been busy contemplating ways to simplify the experience and definitely reduce the weight of my massive handbag! Luckily I received a Windows 7 Hot Pink Eee PC™ 1008P designed by Karim Rashid (prolific designer, of pretty much anything and everything imaginable) compliments of Windows 7, and I cannot wait to throw it in my bag! This stylish little guy come in at 2.5 lbs, only 1” thick, has a 10.1” frameless LED backlit display, and up to six hours of battery time – sweet!
Being mainly a Mac person, I was concerned whether I’d be able to adapt to the world of Windows 7 and a PC, but much to my surprise, it’s more ‘Mac’ than I thought! There’s some cool drag and drop features, plus it has Photo Gallery and Movie Marker from Windows Live — a system comparable to Adobe’s Creative Suite — which is super helpful for me when editing FPD videos and photos! So if you’re wondering how I find the time to churn out that New York Fashion Week coverage so quickly, this season it will be all thanks to this hot pink phenom in my mondo, but thankfully lighter, handbag!
