November 15, 2006 We’ve written previously about the EGO luxury laptop from Dutch company Tulip and its interchangeable skins and the good news is that the highly fashionable laptop which launched during Milan’s 2006 Fashion Week is now available on both sides of the Atlantic. The elegant design of the Tulip Ego laptop with its round shapes and fashionable, interchangeable skins is a milestone in computer design – at least for the PC – it’s not hard to imagine something like this from Apple. The Tulip Ego is easily carried either on the shoulder or by hand with its rounded chrome handle and with its interchangeable skin system, it doesn’t just come in designer fabrics, finishes and colors, the skins can be changed anytime, anywhere using a customized USB-stick cap that comes with the laptop. So you can mix and match to suit your dress, surroundings or mood. Retail pricing starts at US$5,000 and stretches into the six figure range for the diamond encrusted version.

Tulip Ego features an AMD Turion 64 Mobile Technology, has an integrated webcam, a keyboard with 15 dedicated keys, providing direct access to e-mail, IM, web browser, media-center, speech recognition, web cam, virus scan, and data back-up; and a state-of-the-art audio system with two microphones.

“We are very pleased that the Tulip Ego laptop will be introduced to the U.S. market through Barneys New York,” said Ego Lifestyle Managing Director, Jeroen de Punder. The four stores where shoppers can try out the new Tulip Ego laptop, are Barneys New York, Beverly Hills, Chicago and Dallas.
