We're pretty accustomed by now to the habit of "fashionable
" device manufacturers leaving out all the snazzy specs for the sake of looks -- or sometimes, it seems, just to spite us. Not so with these new limited edition "Arttops" from Cenio, which probably wouldn't make it to the top of the heap in any sort of benchmark bakeoff, but at least manage not to be total slouchers. The 15.4-inch M1550 "King" laptop and 14.1-inch M1410 "Queen" laptop each sport Core 2 Duo 1.86GHz processors and 1GB of DDR2 RAM, with the King running a 120GB HDD and the Queen settling for 100 gigs. Both computers include built-in 1.3 megapixel webcams, DVD / CD-RW combo drives, 7-in-1 card readers and Intel 950 graphics. Nothing too astounding, and of course the $2,986 and $2,915 pricetags are a tad outlandish, but each laptop is hand signed by the artist Selwyn Senatori, and only 100 of them will be built.
Cenio Arttops don't leave their specs at home
