It's better to pass United States this year. It looks girlish in this color. I would be more interested in 10 hour battery.

the colors are similar to chemically treated topaz gemstones, usually referred as mystic topaz.

It actually should be Qosmio and not Qosimo. Qosmio means "My Universe". Qos from Cosmos while Mio which means mine.

Looks really nice. I wish they used better material such as carbon fiber or aluminum, and finish it off with that cool painting.

What's with that crappy low resolution screen on a 15" laptop?

I bought 2 new laptops in the past 3 years with the money I saved NOT buying a macbook. ;) 

Agreed however, they do use quality materials for their cases.

Any more detail?... Last semester at Cornell I was introduced to quantum dots which you grow so that the band gap is the wavelength of the light you want the photon to emit. Is this the same sort of thing?

nano tech is just a publicity stunt, the paint is already been used in automotive long before the nano tech boom.

It's spelled QOSMIO - the article misspelled it twice.

Color changing has been around since at least the 80's (when i first saw it, likely much earlier it was invented...) A guy on our street had a black/purple custom painted truck depending on the angle you see it the color is different... Because this paint has the word "nano" in it makes it special?

This does sound a little different in application than the vehicle paint people have mentioned. It uses laminate layers rather than paint.
But yeah, it's generally referred to as chameleon paint.

The trademark name is ChromaFlair

This type of paint has been available for quite a few years now. What makes this coating any different?
