On 24 April, just before the May Day holiday, a post titled "Hunting for the Red Laptop Girl for seven days without eating or drinking" was published at the Soho Digital Community.
The thread, which has accumulated 2,586 replies and 2,157,856 clicks to date, consists of candid snapshots of a pretty girl whom the photographer is stalking. Lenovo's new ideaPad U110 laptop, in a fashionable red color, appears in practically every picture.
