Pink is the hottest trend in fashion and on the runway. In fact, many authorities in the world of fashion expect the color to continue dominating the clothing and accessory markets for years to come.
While the color has long been associated with women due to its soft appearance, more and more men are beginning to embrace the color as well with dress shirts for the working environment and casual shirts for the home. Apart from the influence the color has had within fashion, the color is also recognized worldwide as being associated with breast cancer awareness.
A wide range of corporations have embraced this concept by selling pink products during the month of October, which has been universally accepted as breast cancer awareness month. Among the many pink items that consumers have access to, perhaps none is more appealing than hot pink computers.
Recently both Dell and Sony have offered to donate money to help fight breast cancer for each pink dell laptop or pink VAIO laptop that is sold. Most of Dell’s complete line of laptops is available in the color pink, including Inspiron Studios and Minis, the XPS m1330 and m1530 and the Latitude E4200.
For their part, Dell has committed to raising at least $250,000 through the program – $5 for each pink laptop sold. In the past Sony has joined in on the action by offering to donate $100,000 from the proceeds of a limited edition pink Sony VAIO bundle that included a pink mouse and carrying case.
Toshiba has also released a special pink edition of their Portege laptop, partnering with Best Buy Canada to donate $40 from each unit sold to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. The laptops were offered during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
It is not surprising that companies have marketed products that help to support a good cause. After all, people like to display their beliefs, whether religious, political or otherwise.
Purchasing a pink notebook is the perfect way for someone to support the fight against breast cancer while also getting something that is appealing and functional. I’m certain that men everywhere are waiting for the day when Dell, Sony or HP puts together a prostate cancer bundle, including a bright blue laptop and like accessories.
Until that day comes why not go pink? If you’re looking to get noticed for your fashion sense or just looking to help a great cause then pink laptops are for you.

Cute Pink Laptops Combine Function and Fashion
Recent offerings from some of the world’s top laptop producers have merged fashion with functionality by offering pink laptops to the eager masses. Demand for pink laptops is strong and for good reason.
After all, the color pink was recently identified as one of the top 10 fashion colors of the spring. The ability for the consumer to express themselves through current fashion trends while also taking care of their computing needs has helped to propel computer manufacturers to market toward this end.
Laptops remain the computer of choice for those looking for portability due to their small form factor, with most weighing in somewhere between just 4 and 10 pounds. Laptop computers afford their owners the opportunity to take their computer to work, to school, on an airplane or just about anywhere else.
Thanks to the advent of wireless technology, laptops can now connect to the outside world in a multitude of locations. Imagine having all of the capabilities of a modern laptop contained within a beautiful pink exterior.
More and more people are accessorizing with their electronic devices – digital music players, digital cameras, PDAs and cell phones are available in a multitude of colors include your favorite color pink. After all, what better way to make a statement while equipping oneself with the best of what technology has to offer?
Now that pink notebooks are readily available from a wide range of respectable companies the decision on which laptop to buy rests on several factors. Many people ask the basic question – what is the best laptop?
The answer to this question, of course, depends on what you intend to use your laptop for. Important considerations include laptop screen size, laptop weight, laptop battery life, laptop processor, laptop memory and laptop price.
The next question might be – who makes the best pink laptops? The answer to this question is essentially impossible to answer, since brand preference is highly dependent on past experiences.
For example, someone that has had a positive experience with Hewlett Packard (HP) desktop computers might say that HP makes the best laptops, while someone else may lean toward Dell for similar reasons. Fortunately, there are many reputable companies from which to choose your new pink laptop, with most offering solid warranty plans and top notch technical service.
While it’s true that laptop computers demand a higher price than a desktop computer of a similar configuration, nothing beats the freedom that comes from portability. And why not choose a pink laptop for the ultimate vehicle of self expression.
Pink Netbooks/Mini Laptops
What’s the best pink netbook? There is quite a demand for pink laptops/notebooks or netbooks and far be it from me to suggest who is buying them all, these are not just laptops for women.
What ever the reason you want one is, pink netbooks, and other colored laptops, will stand out from the mass of boring black and white ones out there and will mark you as someone with style and taste, or possibly just someone who likes this color.
Back to the question I started with. Most, if not all, pink mini laptops are just standard models with a new paint job. So the best one is going to be the one that fits your budget/size requirements and usage best and then also comes in that perfect shade of pink.
Check out the reviews of the standard models at the bottom of the page and check the pricing when you come to buy as often there is a premium for non black/white models and whether you want to pay it is down to how much you really ‘have’ to have pink.

The Best & Hot Pink Laptop & Netbook Computers of 2018
Acer Aspire One A110/A150
Looking for pink Acer laptop? This ACER mini laptop is one of the best choices in the market today. Good value, 9 inch screen Netbook. Available in Pink-Edition but its only the top of the case and keyboard surround that’s pink. The rest is standard white. Still as with all Asus Netbooks, it’s good looking and well spaced for the price.
Acer Aspire One D150
Again Acer doesn’t let us down when it comes to value in the 10 inch size Netbook. The only problem with the D150 in this list is that it doesn’t really have a pink-Edition/ model. The closest is it’s red version but it’s not that pink. However if your prepared to be flexible on your shade of pink and budget is important then you should at least check it out.
Asus Eee PC 901
Looking for Pink ASUS Laptops, Our all time favourite 9 inch netbook and still the one that sees the roughest daily use. As with the Acer the actual color is Sakura red but does look like a very bright shocking pink so sunglasses may be required. It seems there are proper pink 901’s around but we can’t pin down what markets they are in so look around and you might find one in ‘Fucshia’ as pictured.
Asus Eee PC 1008HA
10 inches of proper pink from the Asus 1008HA. 10.1 inch screen in the new SeaShell case design make for a pretty good looking machine. It’s very thin so will slip in anywhere but the thinness is at the expense of a non user replaceable battery which could be a hindrance if you need long life when away from mains power. Red and Pink-versions are available but we can’t find a picture of the pink-version anywhere on the net so the standard model will have to do.
Asus Eee PC 1005HA
Essentailly the same as the 1008HA but with a user replaceable battery. The increases the thickness but it’s still notecably thinner then many netbooks and certainaly thinner than almost any laptop. The added flexibility of the replacable battery wins it for us when compared to the 1008HA.
HP Mini 1000 : Vivienne Tam Edition
HP have teamed up with Vivienne Tam to produce this version of the Mini 1000 Netbook. Inspired by traditional Chinese design and modern fashion this special edition netbook features a rose red chassis with flower motifs all over. With the HP’s full width keyboard and 10 inch screen it’s a Netbook any of you with a desire for pink-color should seriously consider.
Essentially a reworked MSI Wind the LG X110 wouldn’t seem to have a huge amount going for it on first looks. When you look closer you find out you were right. It’s not to say it’s terrible, far from it, it is solid has a good keyboard and has built in 3g connectivity but the touchpad is very close tho the keyboard, the built in mobile broadband software is not the best and the battery life is poor. It does have a pink- version so here it is.
MSI Wind U100 – Special Valentine Edition
The MSI Wind is available in pink-edition. The Wind itself is a middle of the road Netbook. It’s let down by poor battery life as standard and a small touchpad which can make browsing a bit more of a chore than it should be. However don’t write it off. With a larger 6 cell battery it can compete on value with the other 10 inchers and if this color of love is what you need then no other manufacturer offers so many choices.
Possibly the best 10 inch mini notebook on the market at the moment the NC10 also has it’s pink-flavour. It doesn’t really have the best of any particular feature but the all round package is well spaced with every aspect of it’s design and features set level with or close to it’s competitors and all at a competitive price. A must look at option.
Sony VAIO P Series
Ok this is not a pink laptop (again) but it is red and if you want something small that can fit in a handbag or possibly even a pocket if the pictures are to be believed then this is ideal. No compromise on functionality either as the Sony does everything you expect of a Netbook and more than many. You will have to compromise on price as the Sony VAIO P Series is not cheap.
Sony VAIO W Series
So at last Sony has succumbed and launched a genuine netbook but somehow we feel slightly let down. Yes it’s pretty and pink and has a hi-res 1366 x 786 screen but the poor battery life and lack of innovation anywhere else and the normal exclusive pricing mean that there is far better value to be had elsewhere.
A great pink netbook from Toshiba. Good nearly full width keyboard allowing impressive touch typing speed and a screen that has the shinyness just about right. Seemingly very good battery life and generally nice design but I think the rear looks a bit clunky. The top end model has the metallic look and the metal keyboard while the cheaper models sport the more standard plastic keyboard and it’s these versions that are available in pink-version. Also the pink-color is limited to the upper case/screen which is a bit of a shame.
Pink Laptop Bags and Accessories
Once you’ve gone through the many different options and have chosen your perfect pink laptop, it’s time to pick out some matching pink laptop or tablet accessories. After all, your purchase wouldn’t be complete without that new bright pink laptop sleeve or bag. Besides just looking good, your new sleeve will serve to protect your valuable investment from scratches, abrasions and water damage.
When shopping for a case or sleeve the options can seem overwhelming. There are soft cases, hard cases, backpacks and a relatively new category that is gaining popularity – neoprene laptop sleeves.
While school and college backpacks are available in different size, Neoprene sleeves are lightweight and relatively inexpensive. They are available in various shades of pink. Another inherent bonus with many neoprene sleeves is that they stretch to conform perfectly to the shape of your laptop.
Others of the non-stretchable variety can be purchased specifically for a brand or type of laptop or netbook. One model that is particularly popular with the netbook crowd is the Pink-Kroo Retro Sleeve.
Designed to fit netbooks measuring 10-inches or less, the Kroo is a durable option that is also capable of holding a wireless mouse, AC adaptor cord, a set of headphones and other miscellaneous cables inside its two pockets (one zippered and the other a Velcro snap) on the outside of the sleeve.
Inside the sleeve is a neoprene flap that prevents the zipper from contacting the outer case of your netbook. Users report that the Kroo fits a 10-inch netbook perfectly, without being too loose or too snug. The Kroo can be had for under $15 through Amazon – a bargain for a cool, well reviewed pink-sleeve.
For more traditionally sized laptops there is Pacific Design Nucleus Sleeve in “Pretty Pink.” Made to fit laptops measuring around 15-inches (15.4-inches to be exact), the nucleus is described by its manufacturer as “a case within a case,” since it’s designed to fit perfectly inside a larger line of Pacific Design cases.
The case is a semi-hard shell construction that is extremely slim and lightweight and includes a built-in organizer panel and detachable shoulder strap. Despite being lightweight the case has plenty of room to hold additional gear such as AC adaptors, mice, cables, etc.
The Pretty-Pink sleeve is available through Amazon for $25, which alone qualifies for their free super saver shipping option. Purchasing a sleeve or case for your pink computer is cheap insurance against scratches and water damage and should be at the top of your accessory list.
Remember to purchase a sleeve that best fits your individual laptop of choice without leaving too much additional room for the laptop to slide around in. Other important considerations are zippered or Velcro straps to securely contain your contents, as well as storage compartments for miscellaneous gear.
