The many lids of the Dell Inspiron R (photos)

Dell's new Inspiron R line has swappable lids in a wide range of colors and styles. How wild and weird do they get? We try on some on a 15R.

The Dell Inspiron 15R's lid removes with the press of a rear button and some gentle but firm sliding. It took us quite a few times to figure it out. When on, the lid feels solid and doesn't slide. You can see, though, that even with the lid off, the rear of the Inspiron 15R is still enclosed.

Horizonte del Infinto--Green

This might be our favorite. Green coffee-shop vibe.

La-Pazitively Hot!

Flaring pink is a design that won't work for everyone. Also, never tell anyone what this lid's design name is.

Viva Africa

The Product (Red) design featuring cute hearts and a little cow might be a tad too cuddly, unless you like your Dell to look like a greeting card.

SeaSky

Perfect for surfers, graffiti artists, or those who don't mind a laptop as busy as a tie-dye T-shirt.

The plain old dark grey cover that comes with the Inspiron 15R. Now, where's the fun in that?
