The Asus F6V is a $1,300 Intel Core 2 Duo notebook that comes in a choice of four colors and an accompanying scent. This ebony version emits a “Musky Black” cologne imbued into the clear plastic film wrapped around the laptop case. Other scents are “Floral Blossom,” “Aqua Ocean” and “Morning Dew.” Scents last from three to six months. (Photo courtesy of Microsoft Corp.)
The Ego Orphine is for the woman who has everything — except a laptop computer disguised as a Swarovski crystal-encrusted Italian leather purse. This AMD Turion 64-bit laptop also has a bass reflex stereo system. Not that that’s why you would buy the Orphine, made by Netherlands-based Ego, which hasn’t disclosed a price yet. But as the saying goes, if you have to ask, then you probably can’t afford it.
