Just in case the usual laptop custom design options--usually a bold primary color on the lid, or maybe a set of flaming skull stickers--aren't doing it for you anymore, the creative minds at Sony have a new way to support computer users' self-expression. The company has commissioned artist Maya Hayuk, a painter whose work has been seen on several album covers and an Absolut ad campaign, to create new designs for Vaio laptops.
The result was unveiled Tuesday night by Sony, in the form of two limited-edition 15.4-inch Sony Vaio FZ series laptops, with the new designs on the back of the lid.
The flowery "Grow" design and the angular "Never Stop" are both available only through SonyStyle retail stores and the SonyStyle Web site, starting at around $2,500. The systems also include matching desktop wallpaper, a video clip of the artist discussing her work, and a signed certificate of authenticity.
