Bar the odd Apple-esque flirtation with all-white cases, laptops have remained stubbornly black or grey, but Toshiba’s had enough – it's launched its LapJacks service. Furnish Tosh with a digital photo and three crisp ten pound notes, and two weeks later it'll shove a fully customised laptop skin through your letterbox – with a little help from the postman, of course. Then just slap it on your lappy's lid and, hey presto, laptop bore is no more.And there’s no need to fret if your photography skills sit at the ‘finger over the lens’ level. There's a fine selection of digital shots online for your perusal, from Ferrari's F1 motors (very Acer) to purely abstract splodge, all at the knock down price of £15.For the ultimate in custom coordination though we're waiting for the mobile phone skins promised as coming soon.
