Now that the computer's transitioned from unsightly office machine to fashion accessory, it seems we're inundated with new designs every week. The limited edition Sony VAIO Signature Collection W Series Holiday Sparkle netbook ($500) -- that just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it? -- goes all-out with the winter motif. When you hold the case at different angles, you see a different snowflake design. Pop open the lid, and you'll find an all-season netbook under all the sparkle: a 10.1" LED-backlit display, Wireless-N, Bluetooth, and Windows 7. Or throw some tinsel on it, and you've got yourself a $500 Christmas ornament.
