There is very little interesting industrial design-wise about almost any Dell notebook I would care to look at. They are almost with exception utterly generic machines in terms of design. Even the colors they try to use are like putting lipstick on a pig.
Sony has units with sleek a Mac-like design, HP is trying all sorts of media-centric designs and textures and even 18 and 21 inch units, HDMI out etc. You’d think Dell would be a little more creative.
