Samsung Special Edition Series 9 Laptop Packed

The luxury versions of its Series 9 ultraportables come in two new color options: 'Moonlight Blue' and 'Luxury Rose Gold.'

If run-of-the-mill laptops -- or even the shapely Samsung Series 9 introduced earlier this year -- just aren't dazzling enough for your tastes, Samsung's special edition luxury versions of its Series 9 ultraportables may be the solution for you.

Samsung's Tomorrow site is simply teasing with two photos and a video for each of the two new color options: "Moonlight Blue" and "Luxury Rose Gold."

I'm sure there's a market for these laptops, with their "fancy and elegant feel" and crystal-encrusted covers. After all, someone made a solid gold, diamond-encrusted iPad and other extravagant tech products have hit the market.

The Series 9, moreover, is a really well-designed laptop that PCWorld laptop editor Jason Cross found "a joy to use."

The thing is, the Series 9 already has a premium price tag, with a starting price of $1,649. While there's no word on pricing and availability on these special edition models, you can bet having a more fashionable shell will cost quite a bit more.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
