Speaking on the occasion Huub van den Boogaard, Founder, Tulip, said, “Tulip has identified a growing tendency towards design needs within the computer industry. The ordinary computer has evolved from a specialty product to a commodity product. Competition in the computer market is driven by specifications and price, with a growing demand of users willing to pay a premium for a personalized design computer”.

The circular shaped notebook resembles a ladies handbag, E-Go is definitely not a showpiece item, it features a an AMD Turion 64 processor, ATI Radeon Xpress 200 graphics chipset, 1GB of PC3200 DDR RAM, 100GB SATA hard disk drive, and 12.1-inch widescreen WXGA (1280×800 pixels) display.
