One of the things that sat Dell apart from its peers in its early days of operation was that you could choose the hardware inside the machine rather than simply taking what HP or other makers thought you would want. Later Dell began allowing users to choose the color of their notebooks allowing for options other than black or silver.
Dell has now announced that it will be allowing users to choose the color on two of its new Inspiron desktop computers. The two machines are the new Inspiron Slim and mini-towers. Both machines can be clad in suitably bright hues including Piano Black, Pure White, True Blue, Formula Red, Tangerine Orange, Spring Green, Plum Purple, and Promise Pink.
Under that colorful exterior buyers can choose from an array of Intel and AMD CPUs, up to 8GB of RAM, up to 750GB of storage, and either integrated graphics or ATI discrete graphics cards. The mini-tower also has a Blu-ray drive as an option. The machines are available in China now and will be offered worldwide sometime this spring at prices starting at $299.
