Happy Holidays to ALL...
When I received an invite to the Dell Urban Meet Up at Hang Art Gallery in San Francisco, I did not realize that the art would not only be on the walls, but ON THE COMPUTERS.
Let me start by saying I was on the hunt for holiday gift suggestions, and personalizing computers is a hot trend. I was also on the hunt for myself, I need a Mini laptop for computing on the go. When I do get a new laptop (other then the one I currently share with my kids), I will want it to have color or personalization. With a house of three boys to deal with, having some pink or red on my computer will help it stand out as "moms computer". Dads, kids, teens or even college students also seem to prefer personalization.
At the event I found out that the Dell Art House has designs from artists including Tristan Eaton, Mike Ming, Joseph Amedokpo, Siobhan Gunning and Bruce Mau. Along with having lots of models, Dell also has 100+ designs and one click easy access movie bundles (through Dell CinemaNow). There was also information available for some recent Dell GREEN initiatives: Dell and Staples launch free recycling for Dell Customers nationwide, and Dell and Goodwill launch Reconnect Texas (Reconnect Partnership website).
**Contest is now closed..Winner announced 12/24.
Dell has generously offered a $100 Dell gift certificate for me to giveaway. But I decided to ask for something in return, to enter the giveaway please comment on this post with what type of Dell design would fit you - as a Mom, Dad, Man, Women, for your kids, college student or for your family. For example, as a Mom I would prefer to pink Dell Mini Laptop (hint to any family members reading this and wondering what gift to get me...). Do you prefer basic black or silver? Do you like one of the artists designs in particular? Do you want a laptop or a desktop? This will help me understand what designs fit different people for my Holiday Gift Guide.
As always with my giveaways, those that post or discuss via their social networks details about this giveaway get another entry in the Random.org list.
Listed below are press releases and pictures of some of the computers I saw at the event. Contest is open as of today (Dec. 20) and will be open until 9pm pst Dec. 23. I will use Random.org to pick a winner on Dec. 23. Please don't put an email in the comment, just put a "valid" email in the email field not displayed.
