I have seen some really strange computers in my day, but Samsung has just unveiled one of the oddest branded machines ever. The new Samsung X170 is branded with the line of dolls for kids known the world over as Barbie.

The machine is a bright pink color and has the silhouette of Barbie in black on the front lid. A Barbie doll is also available that has its own tiny version of the notebook. The specs of the machine include a Core 2 Duo CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB HDD.

This machine seems like it would be more suited to use by kids, but the hardware inside the machine is more powerful than a kid would need. This would have made more sense as a netbook that you could buy for a little girl's first computer. Pricing is unknown at this time.
