Although technical specifications are often the first consideration when choosing a laptop, many also consider style an important element. If you want to make a statement with your laptop, there are several fashion-conscious styles on offer for 2010.
Six fashion-conscious laptops for 2010:
1.Dell design studio computers
If creative expression is important to you, the Dell design series may be right up your alley. With over 200 cover designs to choose from, you can pick your own cover for roughly $85 extra. You will find prints like multi-colored plaids, OPI nail polish swirls, sports versions like New York Yankees fan and even styles that benefit charity. For example, choose a cover from the product red designs catalog and part of the proceeds will go to the Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.
2. Dell Studio XPS 16
If you don’t want to part with an extra $85, but still want something sleek and stylish on your lap, the Dell studio XPS 16 is a nice option. It features genuine leather accents and comes in three high-gloss colors: Obsidian Black, Arctic White and Merlot Red.
3. ASUS U6V Bamboo Laptop
This laptop was designed for the user who is not only fashion conscious, but eco conscious. The front cover is constructed from natural bamboo. This is combined with brushed aluminum to create something very modern, yet organic looking.
