You know, it's not often we actually get a little giddy around here about something new but when it comes to something (or someone) brand-spanking new like this, we just can't help our occasional over-exuberant ways.  World, say hello to HotHardware's latest addition to the family, Baby IKC with on-board TurboCute (TC) technology! 


Isabella Kathleen Chiappetta - Baby IKC Unveiled

At 8lbs 1oz, Baby IKC is just a tad heavier than your average netbook but she's most decidedly more good-looking and powerful.  Here we're observing her in full sleep mode.  Talk about impressive!  IKC runs at a tepid 98.6F and is currently a rather quiet and low-maintenance little machine.  IKC's manufacturing team is thrilled with the final product.

Congrats Adrienne and Marco!! 
(cue Stevie Wonder...)

Congratulations Marco!

I hope you got enough sleep to tide you over when you still had the chance.

 Now remember Marco you cant be modding  and Ocing the Baby!I dont think 3D Mark is going to work on it either.LOL She,s beautiful! Now we need to start a new section in the forums for family photos and such. We can call it the Hot Hardware Little Geek Squad. That way we can all keep up with each others little Rug Rats. They going to take over here one day anyway! Also as soon as they get big enough to sit up on their own and hold a screwdriver then the fun will begin! We can teach them to build their own Rigs and have contest to see who the Top Dog is of the Hot Hardware Little Geek Squad!

Hey were all like family around here anyway! LOL Keep the pictures coming of that brand new Baby!Yes
