HP Mini 110 by Studio Tord Boontje pairs high design with the same old same old

The Mini 110 isn't quite the cutting edge of the netbook space at this point, but HP's found a pretty enticing way to refresh it: a new designer version by Tord Boontje. At first glance it looks like just another intricate pattern printed on the lid, but it's actually a brand new process called "HP Imprint 3D" which adds layers and depth to the design -- you'll have to see it in person to really get a vibe for it, though you probably know right now if you're the sort of person to be swayed by high-end lid etching in your netbook purchases. The good news is that unlike the large premium HP commanded for the original Vivienne Tam model, the Tord Boontje is a mere $399. %Gallery-72823% %Gallery-72826%
