We love a good brand gimmick-pastiche: take one part logo that looks NOTHING like Amp'd
's branding, copious amounts of the Spider-man font, mix with skinned / colored laptop lids á la Sony
or Dell, and you've got the oh so cleverly
named NVousPC, a new portable computer business founded by a former Alienware employee. Out the door NVousPC's pushing what looks to be your run of the mill crappy Chinese 14.1-inch ("Mercury") and 15.4-inch ("Ether") models with 1GB+ RAM, Core 2 Duo, Vista, and custom paint jobs. Just be sure you choose it like you would a tat -- frozen bleeding ice-babies don't exactly scream "boyfriend material".
