Some people might recall the Sony artist edition laptop featuring Maya Hayuk or the HP Pavilion dv2800t artist edition notebook. Not to be outdone, Dell has chosen a trendy artist to have their work featured on a laptop. Mike Ming is a Brooklyn, New York based artist who has created two works, “Sea Sky” and “Bunch o’ Surfers”, to be featured on the Inspiron 1525. Ming comments that:

“I wanted to create a sense of energy, playfulness, sophistication and psychedelic momentum when I started this. This new technique from Dell brings my inspiration-water and the energy it produces-to life and gives computer aficionados their own display of style.”

Dell has used a manufacturing technique that ensures the art work will not wear off over time, the design is inlaid and the colors look true to the original piece created by Ming.

The design does not carry across the case like the HP dv2800t artist edition laptop does, so in that sense the Inspiron 1525 artist design does not feel as complete or entirely special, but then again there isn’t a $100 premium that HP charges on the special edition version designs of its laptops. Pricing for the Dell artist edition Inspiron 1525 will start at $699 and can be found here:

The days of grey and black stock laptops are obviously over, any manufacturer that doesn’t have some type of pattern, artwork or snazzy color offering is clearly stuck in the year circa 2006.
