It rarely snows in my part of Texas so we have nothing in the way of winter sports here. For the most part, we stay in the 50-degree range during the winter with sub-freezing temperatures only at nights and during the day for a few days. That means we aren't familiar with companies that make skis and such for the most part. If you live where it gets cold and snows or if you like to travel where you can ski you probably know the Rossignol name.
Rossignol makes skis and other winter sports gear. It and HP have teamed up for some special edition notebooks that have artwork that are featured on some of its cool ski gear. The ladies can get the Attraxion design and the guys get the S7 design. Under the hood, both of the machines are your average Pavilion DV6 notebooks.
The notebooks have Intel Core i5 CPUs, Windows 7 Home Premium OS, a 15.6-inch HD screen, and run Photoshop Elements and Premier Elements for editing photos and video. The machine has 500GB of storage and a webcam as well. The machines will hit Europe in mid-January for 699 eur starting.
