Woman without clothes used to sell notebook.

(click ad, via) She's imitating a notebook (*clever*). The Samsung SF notebook. Which is "revolutionary" because it is curved. Like a woman's body. Like any body, actually, thanks to the curvature of the human spine. Her hooha is the power button, I guess. Be nice if the agency, Cheil in The Netherlands, had translated the copy, so's we could see if they slipped in any awkward double entendres. Add it to the sex sells pile.

Translated as best as i could to keep the context in order, but no real double entendres as far as i can see:
Real beauty isn't straight or angular. Therefor the organically formed Samsung SF notebook has beautiful natural curves you see in very little notebooks. Its slim design and long battery life on top make it the perfect travel compagnion. It starts up in three seconds and with great ease it shares digital content with TV, telephone or camera. Advanced technology* can be beautiful sometimes.

The thing that actually bothers me most, as a Dutch speaker, is that in the small text below the computer is referred to as 'hem' and 'hij' - "him" and "he" - while the best translation is indeed 'it', in Dutch it's still weird to see this picture, with the text below reading: "he'll start up within three minutes", etc. It would be nicer to be consistent and say "she is the perfect travel companion, ..she starts up..etc. With the female picture and male description, we're just left confused.
