Dell Inspiron Towers Are Like Skittles: Cheap, Tiny and Rainbow-y

Dell's Inspiron towers are what cheap computers should be—uh, cheap, customizable and colorful. They start at $300, but are oddly stopping over in China first before coming to the US "this spring."

Yes, I do believe all cheap consumer electronics should signify their cheapness with tons of color, but you know, nice-looking color. Pay more, get less (color). It makes sense, right?

FASHION MEETS FUNCTION WITH NEW INSPIRON FAMILY, DELL MAKES IT EASY TO CUSTOMIZE LIFESTYLE AND DÉCOR

ROUND ROCK, Texas, March 30, 2009 – Style-minded families, students and teens want to personalize their PCs to meet their performance and lifestyle needs – blogging, chatting, sending photos or running a media center. Highly-stylized products, like Dell's new Inspiron slim and mini-tower desktops, deliver on design and customization, transforming the brand from the "built- for-me" model, into "made-for-me."

Dell's new Inspiron slim and mini-towers expand the design and personalization possibilities for consumers.
