After months underground, during which time she released only a pixellated propaganda video, the felicitous feline has surfaced once again, bent on pursuing her plan for world domination. As evidence, I present to you the Hello Kitty Netbook.
Compared with, the Hello Kitty C1's design is downright subdued, with the text "Hello Kitty" repeated across the lid and a single impression of the evil mastermind's image in one corner. Otherwise, the 2.6-pound mini laptop looks like nearly every other all-white Netbook.
Its specs are fairly typical as well: a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive, and a 10.1-inch display. There are also two USB ports, a 1.3-megapixel Webcam, and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. It runs on Windows XP Home in your choice of five languages.
But, fellow citizens, do not be fooled by the cuteness! This product is all part of a pernicious plot to attack your wallet: whereas most Netbooks are priced in the $350-$500 range, the Hello Kitty C1 costs a ridiculous $890.
You have been warned.
