As for "gender equality", I believe that the subject is more or less pointless outside third-world countries where women are genuinely discriminated against. Ironically the most vocal sources of feminism today are from first-world countries where 99% of females are living happy, fullfilling lives, free to pursue whatever they like...and are only complaining for the sake of complaining. But I won't go too far into that.
A female point of view:
I think it is stereotypical to market something like that to the female gender, but it's so silly, so I don't understand how somebody could possibly be offended. It's not like the laptop comes with a hand mixer and some measuring cups.
And I totally agree, feminists in first-world countries have nothing to complain about, us ladies, we have it pretty darn good. There will always be stereotypes, always, BUT I'm thinking making a laptop marketed towards women is not the biggest one. Kudos to them if they can sell them, they're doing something right.
