Dell (PRODUCT) Red Studios
Dell has taken the unusual step of announcing three new artwork options for its Studio notebooks, all under the aegis of (PRODUCT) Red. (PRODUCT) Red is a commercial initiative designed to trickle money to the Global Fund, an AIDS charity. For the purchase of each 15- or 17-inch Studio with (PRODUCT) Red artwork, Dell says it will send $20 of the money to the Global Fund.
The illustrations are by Joseph Amedokpo, Siobhan Gunning and Bruce Mau, and are "permanently infused" into each notebook's lid to prevent fading. A 15-inch Studio costs a minimum of $649, while 17-inch systems cost at least $799. Dell also sells a variety of other (PRODUCT) Red items, such as a version of its XPS One 24 desktop.
