Electronics maker NEC said on Wednesday that it will begin selling a new notebook computer adorned with the Hello Kitty character.
The company said its â€œLavie G Hello Kitty modelâ€ will sell for 199,500 yen ($1,680). The new laptop can be ordered through NECâ€™s online shop, with customers receiving the new unit by June 19.
The laptop is targeted to young and middle-aged women who love the character. It is rose-pink and showcases the Hello Kitty face at the center of the back panel, surrounded by four decorations in the shape of a heart. It looks so much like a jewelry box, that Japanese jewelry fans are also included in its sales target.
The laptop uses a mobile AMD 3400+ Sempron processor and runs Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium.
