The hip-e wants to get down with your children


We spotted the teaser site for this last week, now Digital Lifestyles Group is now publicly pimping the hip-e, their new PC for teenagers. Turns out this bad boy is going to cost $1,699 (which fortunately won't take most teenagers more than a few days of working at the Sunglasses Hut to save up for), which gets you a PC with a 120GB hard drive, 512MB of RAM, a built-in TV tuner, speakers that can be removed and turned into a "beatbox" (whatever the hell that is), a 1.5GHz processor, a supposedly more teen-friendly front-end for Windows XP, a 17-inch display, and a DVD/CD-RW combination drive. Should be out in November, with everyone's fave non-blonde Ashlee Simpson helping promote it at malls across America.
