Fresh limited edition of the HP Mini, featuring the design of world-renowned Dutch industrial designer Tord Boontje, was launched in Singapore last week; the world’s first 3D surface technology.
Boontje turned the latest HP Mini as his white canvas, with the HP Imprint 3D technology. The result is the industry’s first 3D notebook cover that shows depth to every aspect of Boontje’s design.
Arts and crafts hobbyists might see the similarity of the HP Imprint 3D design to a popular paper craft hobby called Paper Tole or 3D Decoupage art that involves cutting, shaping, sculpturing and gluing cutouts obtained from identical lithographic prints, and building these components up using silicone, to create a 3D picture.
The HP Imprint 3D, on the other hand, is made possible by a unique in-mold decoration process.
Sharing the stage with the HP Mini by Studio Tord Boontje is the new HP Mini 311 which boasts of the largest Mini notebook high-definition display at 11.6 inches. Available in black swirl or white swirl protective HP Imprint finishes, the HP Mini 311 features NVIDIA graphics with DX10 support and Altec Lansing speakers for high-definition video and music playback. This particular model has a starting price of $499.
