The laptops can be configured with artwork from one of three artists whom I’ve never heard of—Joseph Amedokpo, Siobhan Gunning and Bruce Mau—which probably means they’re fantastic. (My knowledge of the art scene is non-existent, in other words.) You should note that the artwork as you see it isn’t merely a sticker or decal (like Gelaskins) but part-and-parcel of the latop; it won’t be peeling off any time soon.
As for the laptops themselves, the Studio 15 comes standard with a 15.4-inch display, Pentium Dual Core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, built-in Wi-Fi, etc. Nothing out of the ordinary, but it’s only $600 so whatever. The Studio 17, which starts at $750, has the same Dual Core Pentium, 17-inch display, 2GB of RAM and 160GB HDD. Those are the starting specs, at least—you can customize them to your heart’s content.
That, and (PRODUCT) RED isn’t too bad in and of itself, if buying a laptop or other consumer product is as involved as you can get in trying help other people out.
