Top 25 design entries in Dell Design Studio's 'Make it Yours' competition

Dell's 'Make it Yours' competition gave people the chance to design a notebook lid

In a bid to bring some fresh designs to its Studio range of notebooks, Dell held a 'Make it Yours' competition, giving Aussies the chance to design a notebook lid.

The winning design will be featured on a Dell Studio notebook. After countless entries were submitted over the last four months, Dell has announced a winner and is sharing the details of the top 25 entries. We've taken a look at the shortlist of Australian finalists.

1. Robyn Gough — Not Your Ordinary Coaster

This winning design from Hodgson Vale–based artist Robyn Gough pays homage to the careless laptop users of the world, featuring several coffee mug stains on a lightly tainted silver base.

The panel of judges — which included Stephanie Watson from the Australian International Design awards — awarded it top prize, which included a Dell Studio 15 (featuring the winning design) and $5000 in cash. Gough will be presented with her prize at an awards ceremony tonight in Sydney.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
