DellcoverDell wants you to pick your favorite color with your next notebook PC purchase. Starting today, a new line of Inspiron home notebook computers will give you the option of selecting one of eight different colors at an attempt to boost sales.




At the very minimum, you will be able to get a new colored notebook computer for $769. It appears that when you purchase certain computers, you will be charged a $20 fee to get the color added. For other computers, the cost of the system color is included, and if you choose their standard JetBlack color, you’ll be able to subtract $20 from the price.

Colors include:

  • Standard Jet Black
  • Alpine White
  • Espresso Brown
  • Ruby Red
  • Midnight Blue
  • Spring Green
  • Flamingo Pink
  • Sunshine Yellow

If you choose to go with the more expensive XPS line, you won’t have the same color options as listed above. Instead you’ll be offered colors like Crimson Red, Tuxedo Black, or Pearl White.

Now the only real downside is that the color offerings with the Inspiron line aren’t available for any computers that are part of the business section. You’ll only find this option in the home/home office section.

As a side-note: while I was configuring a computer, there were two options I hadn’t noticed before that may interest you.  First was a blu-ray drive that can be added to a computer for $660, and secondly, I noticed that they are offering integrated web-cams.
