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]


LandofMinos: ...sent down to strike the unroadworthy!

Bentley PC based notebook? Bentley might as well go the whole hog and use Lucas electrics in their cars and British Leyland engines. Then they'll have a car that's as reliable as their notebook computer.
