For the uninitiated, wen I say bombs, I mean that in a graffiti sorta way; totally with love. I’m not the biggest PC fan (Been using MACs since the dawn of time), but these just look sweet.

Dell launched five bold and contemporary Special Art Edition designs for the Dell Studio 15 and 17 laptops, exclusively created by urban artist Mike Ming. Building off of the inaugural Ming art work for the Inspiron 1525 laptop, Dell extends its offering with new designs that showcase Ming’s fluid organic style.

New unique designs for the Dell Studio 15 and 17 laptops include “Red Swirl,” “Seaweed,” “Sunburst,” in addition to the previously released “Bunch O Surfers” and “Sea Sky.” Each piece of artwork is brought to life through Dell’s revolutionary manufacturing technique, enabling every vibrant color and individual brushstroke to be permanently “tattooed” on the laptop’s cover.

Dell’s Studio 15 and 17 laptops are highly personalized products that combine aesthetics and technology into a fresh approach for hi-def mobile lifestyles. These laptops combine sleek designs, striking visual color elements and personalization options with features such as standard built-in webcam, capacitive touch media control buttons, slot load drives, and optional mercury-free LED displays, backlit keyboards and built-in mobile broadband.

Brooklyn-based artist Mike Ming (born Michael Miyahira) blends popular culture, motion and emotion to communicate his visual world. According to Ming, “The technology behind creating Dell’s Art House series of laptops allows me to share my visual creations with people who are inspired by art and who want to express their own individually unique sense of style.”

The Special Art Edition Dell Studio laptops are available for order today, starting at US$799, at www.dell.com/art.
