Limited edition design laptops are becoming all the rage these days. Trust Sony to raise the bar and actually give an artist their laptop as a canvas to do work on.

Sony today unveiled the VAIO Graphic Splash Maya Hayuk Edition notebook. The VAIO FZ190 has been given a new paint job in the form of two different art designs by New York City based artist Maya Hayuk. The two designs are called "Grow" and "Never Stop", you can see these rather funky designs below:
