Dell dons beret, gets artsy with laptops

Following HP and others, Inspiron gets two designs from artist Mike Ming.

Dell

We're not sure whether it's a good or bad thing, but Dell has decided to join the trend of designer laptops. The reason for the uncertainty? It has something to do with the last artistically inspired laptop we saw, from HP, which drew decidedly mixed reactions among Crave readers.

Dell's entry is an admittedly unorthodox "Special Art Edition" of its Inspiron 1525, which is adorned with exclusive designs by artist Mike Ming. There are two choices--"Bunch O Surfers" and "Sea Sky," according to CrunchGear, both of which have Intel Dual Core Pentium chips, a 160GB hard drive, and 3GB of memory, for $699.

Dell boasts a new manufacturing technique that creates "a fluid, graffiti-inspired tattoo effect." We could say more, but we'll let you be the judge.
