hip-eRecognizing the influence teens have over the purchases that parents make on their behalf, an enterprising company has introduced the Hip-e computer. Sporting customizable color skins, the computer has a decent feature set. A 17″ LCD screen is coupled with a dock that includes a wireless keyboard and mouse, and the dock has slots to plug in the MP3 player and cell phone the company also offers. There’s an 8 in 1 card reader built into the dock and a DVD/CD combo drive included. It’s a little expensive at $1699 but it’s a one stop purchase for parents who want to give a “cool” computer to their child.Hip-e also has a notebook computer and matching electronic gizmos on their web site.

  5. Their web site just states “coming soon” with no specs nor information about pricing.

  6. The website does state the prices you have to go to the “buy it ” button to see the prices. The website does not say coming soon because it has all of the information on the computer.It even has an demo!

  7. They were asking about the notebook computer which still says “coming soon” on their web site with no further information.

  8. who moved my cheese? Monday, November 1, 2004

    I think that the computer is super nifty, but I’m somewhat concerned about the price. I’m a bargain hunter, but I’m also very gadget oriented, so, you can imagine my predicament! I’m just wondering if there’s a discount or if there’s some way I could get it cheaper?

  9. Where can I get one and how much will it cost including everything like the cell and stuff?

  10. If you ask me, its just another gizmo coming out just in time for christmas so that every teen can pressure their parents into getting them one. With all the holiday pressure and all…
