Want to score a really cool, original laptop? Then get your checkbooks ready. On Monday, May 12, PC Magazine is launching an online charity auction (on eBay) of nine custom HP laptops lovingly embellished by famous U.S. artists.

de la Vega Custom Laptop

Other designs include a vibrant blue portable featuring the iconic graphical imagery of Paul Frank Industries, and a hip stylized graffiti design by Manhattan street artist James De La Vega.

Shepard Fairey Obey Laptop

I really love the bold stencil work from Obey’s Shepard Fairey — the same guy who brought us those inimitable Obey Andre the Giant posters you see all over big cities.

Custom Laptop by DDCLABS

Other artists represented in the collection include fashion label DDCLAB (pictured directly above), Soho shoemaker Matt Bernson Design, Epiphany Media’s Coltrane Curtis, sculptor Peter Harper and handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff. Under the hood, the computers include HP tx1000z, dv6500t, dv9500z and HP Dragon notebook PC models.

All proceeds of the auction will go to benefit the National Cristina Foundation, a not-for-profit organization who matches donated computers and technology with schools, charities and public agencies around the globe.

For more details on the artists and updates on the auction, be sure to check out PC Magazine’s Computerlicious site.
