Microsoft got on board with the whole ‘artist’ thing, and although I have no evidence of it proving positive I most certainly fine the always second to the iPod device (i.e. Zune) far more attractive as a result. Today, Dell introduced a new artist series for the Mini 9 and 12 laptops from Tristan Eaton. Specs for the devices (here and here) remain largely the same, and expect to drop $50 of your hard earn money for some hard earned individualism.
