Hands-on with HP's Computerlicious designer laptops

Evan Blass

In honor of PC Mag's 25th anniversary, HP commissioned ten well-known designers to spruce up one of four different laptop models (the Pavilions tx1000z, dv6500t, dv9500z, and HDX 9000 -- a.k.a. The Dragon). These one-of-a-kind machines made their debut last night at the magazine's rockin' quarter-century celebration hosted at the MGM Grand's Tabu Ultra Lounge -- well, almost all of them did: apparently Applebottoms by Nelly wasn't able to ship its unit out in time. The other nine notebooks from such names as James De La Vega and Paul Frank -- which will be auctioned off after making a short PR tour -- run the gamet from glitzy to understated to politically-minded. You can scope out the entire lineup in the gallery below, and catch the full listing of contributors by clicking the Read link.
