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.
