Intel has teamed up with Toray Ultrasuede Inc. to develop “ultrafashionable” concept laptops.
The press release reads: “The unique result of their collaboration is a laptop design that screams chic, featuring Ultrasuede® to deliver a unique and luxurious personal touch to mobile computing, along with the performance, mobility and wireless computing capabilities provided by Intel® Centrino® mobile technology.”
The PR goes on to say – “Forty percent of U.S. adult computer users find their laptop to be generic, boring, dull, sterile or lackluster, and 60 percent would like to be able to customize their laptop with options such as color, patterns and fabric. Ultrasuede, with its durability and ease-of-care, wide range of colors and textures and unique luxurious feel is an ideal candidate to transform the look and feel of laptop PCs. It has been successfully incorporated into hundreds of products from furniture to apparel to accessories.”
Fantastic. Now I can whip out the bellbottoms and deck out my laptop in brown and orange suede.
Again, these laptops are currently in the concept phase – so there is no word yet on when and if they will ever make there way onto store shelves. However, if they do, you can be sure to find them at your nearest Claires or Limited Too.
