    Dell, Microsoft and Bono = (RED) kit

    • 7 Comments

    Okay, I know Apple has already fine work with Sir Bono and the RED campaign but that doesn't mean this isn't very cool and great work by Dell, Apple and Bono's gang.

    From Reuters today:

    Dell Inc and Microsoft Corp are teaming up to release a Product Red computer, donating up to $80 for every one sold to fund AIDS-fighting drugs in Africa.

    Dell will start selling two (Red) laptops and one desktop running Microsoft Windows Vista on Friday. The two companies will donate $50 for a laptop and $80 for a desktop to the Global Fund, which finances health programs in Africa.

     

    Bono says - "My job is to put some poetry in the machine, put some funk in the machines," 

     

    Bill added - "I guess you can criticize even life-saving activities. I don't know how, but if somebody has a better idea than (Red) to save more lives, we are all ears," said Gates in an interview. "I put it in the category of a creative use of capitalism."

    Dell plans to offer the uber cool XPS One, XPS M1330 and M1530 laptop computers under the product (RED) brand and they'll sell for the same price as the regular Dell models. On sale from Jan 25th in the U.S. and in 30 countries from Jan 31st. They'll come with lots of red branding and a special edition of Vista Ultimate.

    I'm looking forward to hearing more and I'm very tempted to get an XPS One for my desk at home.

    Check out www.joinred.com and more info from Nick on the Windows Vista blog and of course, Long Zheng.

    Brilliant. Thanks David and James.

    btw, this holds true for many more careers than marketing.

    I came across the little product whilst watching Jeff Sandquist show us around his home and was delighted to find it was a free download on the Stardock site. It does one job and does it well so I now have a dark aurora as the background my logon screen on Vista which suits by black Vaio nicely!

    Download for XP or Vista

    Well, not really….it was just a joke in my earlier post and I wanted to be the first to announce a Cloud Computing Conference as it’ll be all the rage next year. Consider that term copyrighted kids, along with the C3PO acronym :) O’Reilly, you can have it for £100!
