Once upon a time computers and computer accessories came in two colors: beige and off-beige. Apple, of course, changed all that—but it’s still pretty limited in its white/black/silver palette (except when it comes to iPods). Credit Dell, the generally stodgy computer giant, for indulging your matchy-matchy side with, a clever shop-by-color entry point to its Website. Specify the color you want (blue, red, pink, black, green, white, yellow, or brown) and then you can find all the computer accessories (carrying cases, headphones, speakers, keyboards, digital cameras, and more) available in your choice of hue. Many of the items are compatible not only with Dells and other Windows PCs, but Macs too, like the new under-$20 Daytona 2 Wireless Mini Optical Mouse, in fire red—a totally cost effective way to make your laptop feel like it’s got a new handbag.
