Toshiba dips into custom laptop skins

Toshiba custom laptop skin

Typically known as a straight-forward, often business-oriented computer maker, Toshiba has taken the unusual turn of starting LapJacks, a service that creates custom skins for laptop lids. The skins are made of removable vinyl, and can be ordered to fit any size of laptop, regardless of whether or not the computer is made by Toshiba.

Buyers can upload a custom picture or pick from a variety of stock images, under categories such as Abstract, Photography, Sports or Machinery. Toshiba is particularly targeting LapJacks at schools and businesses, who can opt for permanent glue to ensure that a system remains branded property. The skins are currently available only in the UK; a stock image costs 15 ($30), while a custom one is 30 ($59).
