Ugly White, Silver and Grey Laptop Rant

2

I hate White, Silver, Grey and Black PC’s (and cars). I want a PC’s in blue, red, green, etc. Even “Apple Gold” is better than the same old silver. I recently bought a small cheap portable Dell in “Apple Gold”. Wallmart.com was the only web site that even had it in that color! Gold is the new “in style” color right now thanks to Apple’s gold iphone and Trump’s gold toilet! HeHeHe…

I’m now looking for a higher end ultra book. I like the new 20106 HP Specture x360 that Paul recently gave a good review of. However, it’s Silver only! Yuck! There is a 2015 model in tan/gold. I like that laptop color but I would prefer the 2016 model. Does anyone know if HP plans to make a colored Specture x360 later this year? That would be worth waiting for! HP, if you are listening, might I suggest Tardis Blue!

    Charcoal grey for me, please.

    FWIW, Dell used to have a line of netbooks which came in a spectrum of colors, but they must not have sold well or not been profitable.

    Anyway, you could take a lesson from my mother: use contact paper. Like many other naughty children in the 1970s, I covered my notebooks with stickers in questionable taste. I made the mistake of letting my mother see some, and she made me cover then with a subdued plaid contact paper. [Only half joking.]

      They do make custom sized stickers for laptops. So that's an option. There used to be a company called Skin It. I don't know if they still exist. Dell does make a series of Blue and Red netbooks in 2016. However, you want the 2015 model witch is what It got in Apple Gold. The 2016 model is inferior to the 2015 model. Dell downgraded the screen, ports and upgrade ability.
