The formerly buttoned-up, conservative Dell is clearly still exploring its creative side. First, it started wearing a beret, next we can expect it to grow a beard, start wearing all black, and hit open-mic night at the local cafe twice a week at this rate.
After its first go-round allowing Brooklyn, N.Y.-based urban artist Mike Ming to decorate its Inspiron 1525 laptop, the PC maker has come back for more.
This time, Dell has slathered Ming's tattoo-like designs on its Dell Studio 15-inch and 17-inch notebooks. There's the "Seaweed" design, pictured above, as well as "Sunburst," and "Red Swirl."
Both the Studio 15 and 17 come in Standard and Extreme editions--Extreme gets you 3GB of memory and a 320GB hard drive, while Standard means 2GB of memory and a 250GB hard drive.
The 15-inch starts at $799, the 17-inch at $999, and they are available for order now on Dell's Web site.
