Top Five Pink Laptops

Updated on February 14, 2010

Are you tired of the same boring black laptops out there? Everybody has the same looking computer, they only distinguish themselves by being undistinguished. If you're looking for something that stands out, like a pink laptop, then you've come to the right place. I've looked at pink laptops for sale and their reviews and put them here all in one place. Whether you're looking for pink notebook laptops or a huge 17 inch model, hopefully you can find most of what you're looking for here. First lets take a look at some of the features you might be looking for and what distinguishes one laptop from another.

Most manufacturers have them, you can get pink HP laptops or whatever, but not all pink laptops are created equally. Some are bigger some are smaller, some have full 17 inch screens with almost as much memory and hard drive space as a desktop model. You can also find notebook or netbook models, computers that aren't as huge and as the top of the line but are small and light, perfect for web browsing, and day to day productivity. Speed on a laptop is measured in Ghz, the higher the number the faster the computer. This number can be somewhat misleading, if you're not doing any serious gaming, and you have a stripped down system, then your computer can be just as fast as one with a higher Mhz with a bloated system that has a lot of extra drivers. Memory refers to the amount of information the computer can load temporarily while using a program. Think of it as your brain, you read a phone number then quickly dial it and forget it. With more memory you could remember more phone numbers, you'd just forget them when you were done and load some more as needed. In a computer the more it can load into memory, the faster it is. Think about your brain again, the more you have in your head, the less you have to look at a reference book, you just quickly take the info loaded into your brain and use it. Hard drive space refers to the information the computer stores permanently. Going back to the brain/phone book metaphor, the hard drive is the phone book. The bigger the book the more numbers.

Now that you know what these things mean, maybe you can make some decisions and what you're looking for when you buy a pink laptop.

Samsung NC10-11GP

This is basically a net book, and like most net books it's lacking a CD/DVD drive.  It's got a 10.2 inch screen with 1024 by 600 resolution, a 160 GB hard drive and 1 GB of system memory.  It comes with Windows XP Home and a built in camera.  It's a small pink laptop and light, it weighs just under 3 pounds.  It would be good for a student that needs to do basic word processing and spreadsheets, along with browsing the web.  It claims to have an eight hour battery life which is really good and would make it good for travel.  The cost is good to making this a pretty cheap pink laptop.

Acer Aspire One AOA150-1690

Another little computer this small pink Acer laptop is even smaller than the Samsung and a little less expensive. Like most netbooks it doesn't have a CD/DVD drive. It's got built in wireless for browsing the net, a connector for an external monitor and it's 160GB hard drive and processor speed are very similar to the Samsung too although it doesn't have a built in camera. It's got 3 USB ports if you want to connect a DVD drive and headphone connectors too.  If you're looking for something small and light for basic computer productivity then check this one out.

Dell Inspiron 1525 Pink Laptop

This is the big Inspiron, the full featured model with a large 15.4 inch screen. It's got 120GB hard drive although it still has 1GB of memory. It does have a built in CD/DVD player with double write capabilites for DVD and CD burning. It's got a 1.66 Core Duo processor and built in wireless. It's got 4 USB ports, Firewire, VGA monitor and HDMI video output, and a memory card reader. It comes with Windows Vista Premium. This is a "real" computer, not just a net book, you can play games, browse the web, and run most programs that you could run on a desktop computer. It is more expensive but it's got the latest operating system and you can do so much more with it.

Dell Inspiron Mini IM10-2865

Another one of the Dell laptops in pink, the Mini is in the vein of the previous netbooks, kind of like a baby Dell. The Inspiron has a 10 inch screen 160GB hard drive and a GB of memory.  It's a little bit slower than the other two 1.3Ghz vs. 1.6Ghz.  Like the previous net books ecause they all run Windows XP home you won't notice they're slow and you shouldn't have the problems everyone has with Vista. It has a HDMI monitor output, and built in internet wireless and bluetooth.

Sony VAIO VGN-CS260J/P 14.1-Inch Laptop

Finally, just to show that all pink laptops aren't the same is the Sony VAIO.  With a 2 GHz Intel Core Duo processor this laptop is a full blown computer.  It's got 4 GB of memory and twice the hard drive space at 320 GB.  Not to mention a DVD/CD player with Bluetooth and DVD/CD burning capabilities. It has Wi-Fi built in along with Bluetooth, and 3 USB ports an ExpressCard expansion slot and a Firewire port.  It's bigger and heavier at 5.7 pounds, but it's full featured running Windows Vista.  The battery life is rated between 1.5 and 4 hours depending on usage.
