The Dell Inspiron Mini 9 and Dell Inspiron Mini 12 aren’t the most unattractive netbooks around. But the fact that the mini-laptops were only available in black and white did make them feel a bit drab when compared to more colorful options from companies like Lenovo and Acer. Now it looks like Dell is ready to take the lead in the color wars. A few days ago the company added red and pink options for Japanese customers. Now those colors and 5 more dramatic designs are available in the US as well.
You’ll have to pay an extra $25 to get your Dell Inspiron Mini in “cherry red” or “pretty pink.” And designer stickers from artist Tristan Eaton will set you back $50. That’s a lot of money when you’re talking about a laptop with a starting price of $349. But Dell’s got to make money somehow, right?
