Ego Introduces $20,000 Bentley Notebook Computer; Still Uses Vista

Ego, Dutch maker of "luxury notebooks," displayed their $20,000 Bentley laptop at the British Motor Show this week. The computer features color schemes taken directly from Bentley automobiles, and each unit is hand-built and wrapped in custom-stitched leather. Actual computing is handled by a 64-bit processor with 160GB hard drive, running Microsoft Windows Vista. Additionally, the company says the carrying handle was inspired by the door handle on Bentley cars, but a quick peek at Ego's website shows pretty much the same handle design used on all their notebooks. Oh well. For $20k they must be telling the truth. [eGMCartech]
