Just in case the usual laptop designs aren't for your taste, Dell will try to help and eventually sell you one of its brand new exceptional custom painted Inspiron 1525 laptops. Featuring two exclusive artworks by Mike Ming, the "Bunch O Surfers" and "Sea Sky", the Special Art Edition Inspirons are available for order today, starting at $699 for the basic 1525 configuration which gives you Intel Dual Core processor, 3GB memory, 160GB hard drive and 15.4 widescreen display. “I wanted to create a sense of energy, playfulness, sophistication and psychedelic momentum when I started this,” said Mike Ming. “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.” Find more info on Mike Ming and his work at Dell Art.

Looks like a bunch of scribbled lines.

If I want "psychedelic momentum" I'll put a bunch of sharpies and cans of various colored spray paint next to my laptop and take some LSD.

That is exactly what the Dell design team probably did. And the supervisor walked in and was like, "great idea team."
