HP's exclusive Star Wars laptop is everything we want
It's covered head-to-toe in movie imagery and comes with perks.
HP had a couple of big announcements yesterday, including a
gorgeously curved 34in all-in-one PC and a new Surface-like
convertible with a metal kickstand. But there was one more
revelation that'll be of interest to Star Wars die-hards.
And we really, really mean die-hards. The HP Star Wars Special
Edition notebook covers nearly every inch of the laptop with
imagery from the beloved sci-fi film franchise, with an
emphasis on the dark side of The Force. One exception: the
trackpad design of a Death Star corridor, which recalls its
explosive defeat... but it looks very cool, all the same.
Even the glowing red light from beneath the keys matches the
theme well, but the Star Wars branding goes beyond the
hardware. You'll also find a treasure trove of Star Wars
content on the hard drive, including wallpapers, 1,100+ pieces
of concept art, storyboard images, and R2-D2 and
lightsaber-themed sound schemes for notifications and the
In other words, it really is that nerdy. But hey, no judgments:
if you love Star Wars and want to show it, go ahead and revel
in this all-over tribute in the form of a Windows 10 laptop.
It's slated to go on sale on 8 November, at least in the
States, and starts at US$700 - although it's not clear yet
what you'll get for that price. You can choose from Core i5
and i7 processors, up to 12GB RAM and 2TB of storage, and
optional touch functionality on the 15in 1080p screen. Sadly,
there's no option to add the original trilogy without George
Lucas' later tweaks.
