CES2008 DAY 2: Designer Windows Laptops at the Microsoft booth

One of the odder things we did at the Microsoft boot was highlight some of the more fashionable designs that our OEM partners have been building for Windows laptops.  Check out some of these ‘elite’ and ‘sleek’ portable beauties.

A SonyStyle Vaio design, this is the VAIO LT Series desktop computer for the home, with a framed monitor with a straight-lined keyboard and oval mouse makes for a very modern set up. 

And it’s not that expensive either.  Something one could have in their living room for under $1999 with a Intel Core2Duo processor, 2GB of RAM and Windows Vista Home Premium.

Equally famous for being the creators of both the Lamborghini & Ferrari licensed designs, the Asus designer laptops feature some of the biggest names is design

There’s no question that the Ego collection of laptops are the most fashionable computers on the market.  These folks know how to design great looking laptops.

Heck – maybe they should talk to HP, because my Compaq nc8430 is ugly as all hell.
