Prada ASUS S6F limited edition pink leather laptop


Almost a year ago several sites reported on a limited edition Prada notebook that was set to be released "sometime in 2006." That time is soon as Cnet Asia has the confirmation that the notebooks will be available for the Christmas season. The $2,500 Asus S6F 3.3lb ultraportable is still available with tricked out leather lid and palmrests in light and dark cowhide; but Prada has outdone themselves by speccing a pink leather for their limited release of 50 machines.

On initial release the light cowhide version of the S6F was well accepted by most, and extremely well received by some. Most reviewers admit that the $400 leather upgrade package is mainly for impressing collegues, and expressed common concerns over how the leather would weather daily wear and tear.

The hardware specs on the S6F are respectable for an ultraportable machine. The glass is an 11.1" WXGA widescreen display at 1366x768 running off an onboard Intel 950. The processor is a 1.66 GHz Core Duo with a ceiling of two gigs of DDR2 RAM. Other amenities include a 120 gig hard drive, a DVD burner, integrated wifi, gigabit ethernet, and a 4-in-1 memory card reader. The laptop weighs a little over three pounds, but the downside is that battery life is only a shade over two hours.
