Medion's S1211 Hello Kitty netbook: cool, honest...

The 10in limited edition S1211 has the brand’s famous cat face emblazoned across its lid and... er... that’s pretty much the only draw for Hello Kitty fans.

Yes, it's another rebadged MSI Wind, this time with a big decal on the lid.

Under its hood, the notebook features a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of DDR 2 memory and a 160GB hard drive. Graphics are handled by the Intel GMA 950 core in the chipset.

The machine’s set-up for surfing over 802.11n Wi-Fi, and has pretty much everything you’d expect on a netbook - including an integrated webcam, USB ports and a multi-format memory card reader. Bluetooth comes courtesy of a bundled USB dongle.

The S1211 is also available in black. You can buy it now online for £330 ($468/€364). ®
