Laptop love…

Just catching up on a few of my favorite blogs and I came across the new Dell partnership with OPI on Vex in the City and I think it’s love.
I am planning to buy a new laptop in the new year and was considering going for a mac book. I wont lie, a large part of the reason I want a mac book is because they look extremely cool (yes, I am that shallow)… But now, having seen pictures of the new Dell with OPI laptops I may have to change my mind. I was *slightly* struggling to justify the extra cost of the mac book based purely on the fact that I think it looks pretty, so perhaps the Dell is the perfect solution – it looks gorgeous and is a bit more affordable than the mac option.
In my predictable fashion, my favorite shades are the dirty purples (You don’t know Jaques and Parlez Vous OPI to be specific).

Which are your favorites? Or do you think it’s going to far to match my laptop to my nail colour?

    I am *totally* not seeing a problem with matching your laptop to nails. Be glad you didn’t see my pink Dell on Friday!

    Naah, you might as well! It can be worth some extra pennies just to be extra pleased with the laptop.
    I do however think you should go for a Macbook instead. Not because it’s prettier (and it is), but because Macs are so much more easy and reliable than PCs are. Everything just works on it. No viruses, never crashes, everything is just smooth, fast and easy. I own an iMac myself, and I can’t ever imagine going back to PCs. Have had it for about three years, and it’s still as good and smooth running as it was when I first bought it. Worth all of the money.

    I think matching laptops to nails/make-up in general is the way forward for us beauty bloggers. Is there any better combination of interests – technology and slap all in one pretty combination!


    It’s such a tough choice between a PC or a MAC – every MAC user I know has said that ‘once you go MAC you wont go back!’ and raves about how amazing they are. They do look fab and by all accounts work amazingly too, but I’m just not convinced I can justify spending twice as much when I don’t really do much more than browse the internet and blog. I think if I ever branch into You Tube videos then a mac would have to be the preference though for video editing. It’s a tough choice – especially for someone who struggles with decisions at the best of times! 🙂

    I always thought that you should be able to change the laptop colour via a setting in the machine. There are some gaming laptops (dell alienware) that have lights in them where you can change the colours of keyboard and things like that.
    You CAN get ‘skins’ for your laptop though, that are like big repositionable stickers which fit on your laptop, so you really could change the colour every time you change your nails!
