Threadless x Dell

There isn’t much left out thete that can’t be customized with a whimsical little decal these days. Dell Computers is collaborating with T-shirt design company Threadless on a series of laptop cover designs, infusing the notebooks with a much needed artistic angle. The partnership is another example of Threadless’ success through crowdsourcing. They’ve accepted submissions from thousands of artists and users narrowed them down to 11 designs that will adorn the lids of the Dell Mini or Dell Studio laptop PC.

We’re sure Dell is thinking Threadless designs will give PCs the cool they require to compete with Apple’s cult following, and we wholeheartedly support any collaboration that stands the chance of bringing up and coming artists into the mainstream. Updated designs will be available two to four times a year. Considering we spend enough time deciding if a humorous tee is worth the price, we can’t imagine the time it spent choosing one of Threadless’ eclectic offerings. After all, you can always toss the T-shirt.
