Not sure if serious...

Anyway, I know Sony does their entire(?) Vaio range in white, black, green and pink. Noel Lemming stocks them. Or you could buy one of those god awful Dell's with the switchable lid things. Some netbooks come in pink as well (acer aspire one iirc).

Of course I'm serious, I even used the word seriously.

Seriously serious.

Took the wife laptop shopping today, She told the "sales person" she wanted to know what was available in pink.

He was lost for words, I wandered off and looked at the mp3 players.

It has come to the point where she needs a laptop for all her work orders and work photos, (as per my getting fed up with it all over my desktop pc)

Ideally as light-weight as possible.

Asus have some pink ones:

It's the chic range:

Pink is on the webpage but not the direct link to the page.

Have you got any pink paint?

That Asus would fit the bill, pity it doesn't seem to be readily available.

A graphic overlay or skin is an option, an option that I haven't yet suggested.

She would probably then want a pink laptop plus a graphic overlay.....

Sorry, was looking around at some others and saw this (above link), a bit pricey, you might be able to get a better price somewhere, but not bad specs. Thought it might be a starting point anyway. Cheers.

I saw a great sony in their store. 13.3 inch screen, 1080p display, 2.8ghz i7, 4gb ram, either 1gb or 2gb graphics card.

Oh yes, it also cost $5000. Still, it might come in pink :D

I'd rather get her something that suits her wants.

All in all it would probably take less effort then peeling some spuds.

Got something similar for my old boy, he broke the screen within about 3 months by forcing his briefcase closed while it was inside it.

Though his one isn't pink.

I'll get her the Sony.

Asus would have been preferred but can't see anyone that sells it.

Was going to say Sony as well, we got one a while ago that came in blue, pink and lime green as well as black or white.

http://www.sony.co.nz/product/vpceh37fg/sku/vpceh37fg_p+e1I got one of those for a client not so long ago I think. Is that the one with the plactic shell? While it performed well, I found it to be pretty light-weight and all a bit to flexable to me, I was scared I was going to break it picking it up or opening/closing the screen.

A bit pricey though, seems to be about 100 dearer than other places I have seen, but all the others have been out of stock.

Pretty sure it was an EB25, or something like that. I found the same thing, compared to a Tosh, it just didn't feel as strong - I wouldn't buy one for myself.

Who's paying? Pink tinted specs might be a cheaper option. Good luck.
