Absolut artist uses laptop as canvas

Romero Britto will custom paint NVousPC notebooks.


If you're a lover of pop art and Absolut vodka (and who isn't?) you may be interested to know that an artist behind one of the Swedish libation's famous ad campaigns is now turning his talents to computers. No, Romero Britto isn't designing a new quad processor, but his work will be adorning the cases of NVousPC laptops. The first "Britto PC" will feature a custom-painted rendition of his work titled "Mia's Jungle" on the company's 15.4-inch "Ether" laptop, which has an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz processor, 2GB of memory, and a 160GB hard drive. Unfortunately, we couldn't find the Britto model on NVousPC's annoyingly heavy flash Web site. But you can fly down in Miami Beach to see the original on display at his gallery on Lincoln Road. While you're there, head out to The Deuce on Ocean Drive and order an Absolut martini. Shaken, of course.
