This is a laptop from HP?

The normally button-down computer maker breaks out of its mold with a design from the winner of a contest held jointly with MTV.


If we didn't know better, we might think that some of the marketing people at Hewlett-Packard had discovered some new recreational activities. It started off simple enough, with a mildly interesting design for a new Bluetooth mouse. Then the "Clay" laptop was a little weird, but we thought it just wasn't our taste.

But its latest offering is about as subtle as a Peter Max litho. The "HP Pavilion dv2800t Artist Edition" laptop bears the work of a Portuguese artist who won a global design competition held jointly by MTV and the traditionally staid computer maker, ChipChick says.

The specs of this 14.1-inch are fairly standard, but that's obviously not the selling point. What's probably just as important to potential buyers is that it comes with a matching messenger bag--because if you're drawn to a design like this, the last thing you want to do is hide it.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
