IBM ThinkPad will go beyond its basic black attire and adopt the trendy look of brightly colored plastic.
When the series of new notebooks debuts next week, Big Blue’s new mobile offering for the consumer market will sport an array of inexpensive, snap-on covers that allow users to personalize their notebooks with seven different colors.
The covers, which cost less than $30, will fit over the part of the case that holds the screen.
The upcoming ThinkPad “i” systems will also come with 13.1- and 14.1″ screens and Celeron processors running at 466MHz and 433MHz.
