Last Tuesday Asus launched its latest netbook incarnation - the Eee PC™ Seashell Karim Rashid Collection (1008P). It's pink, it's small, it's stylish! After that one can't really say a lot. It's got the usual specs that an average netbook has except that the latest Eee PC packs a lot of spunk in terms of design. It promises six hours of battery life, too. (Read after the cut to see the complete specs)
Karim Rashid, a world-renowned industrial designer was tapped to create the newest look of the Eee PC. The design is the realization of his vision of computing—one that is more sensual, more human, more hip. The hot pink laptop is targeted towards the younger, more mobile market. If you're not the sort who wants to get caught in tacky hot pink, never fear! There's a coffee brown version for guys and older women.

The most interesting thing during the launch was the fashion show parading R.A.F. Plains & Prints's Summer 2010 Collection. I loved most of the oufits featured! The Karim Rashid Eee PC is such a great accessory to the clothes, don't you think?
I like the structure and detailing on the clothes, but the colors are kind of too dark for summer. Still, for business functions and night events, these pieces will be great to have on.
The limited edition of Asus Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid design is priced at PHP 25,900.00 and available only in select dealer stores: Octagon - MegaMall, Complink - MOA, Villman - North Edsa and Accent Micro Park Square Makati. Accessories sold separately.
