Even my laptop isn’t pretty enough

Apparently, anyway:

The Floral Kiss series features a unified design sensibility that has been  developed for the female consumer—from the PC’s design to accessories, such as  the mouse and case, and optional add-ons.

It even comes with nifty scrapbooking, diary, and horoscope applications standard–golly gee!

Thanks, J-Bro!
