Hello Kitty isn't synonymous with power tools, but this chainsaw is an exception, as it was created for the upcoming fan movie "The Hello Kitty Chainsaw Massacre". No word yet on if this custom creation will go into production.

Sotec's latest netbook may be Hello Kitty-branded, but it's definitely no slouch when it comes to performance. Powered by an Intel Atom N270 1.60-GHZ processor and 1GB of RAM, it runs Windows 7 with ease, as you'll see after the break.

The netbook was able to provide decent performance, from normal web surfing while data was being transferred in the background, as well as opening 400 pictures in Bridge, and even editing in Photoshop CS3.

The Sanrio charmer isn't the only new mod he's got, we also spotted consoles adorned with Halo Wars, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Chocobos (of Final Fantasy fame).
