Outline

It was designed to deliver a soft image and simplicity based on the smoothly connected curves. The smooth change from the side to the rounded area delivers a sense of familiarity, rather than the cold feel of electronic devices.

Evaluation

These days so much notebook PC design has a cold, inhuman feel, but we liked this one for its all-over curvy styling and unified design achieved through a sense of softness that extends even to the tiniest details. The result is a product that is nice to handle and easy to get used to. Another outstanding feature is the contrast between the polished white exterior and the semi-matte black of the other parts of the unit.
