The LaVie G Type L Basic laptop, an expansion to NEC's existing LaVie notebook range, comes with a "snow white" outer casing as standard. However, users can now customise their machine with either a red, blue or yellow front.
But we're not talking a plain old paint job. The colored casing uses a special metallic paint which, when surrounded by a magnetic field, takes on a hologram-style criss-cross diamond pattern.
While watching paint dry might not be everyone's forte, we have to give credit to NEC for this truly wacky idea that might just give the lie to the old 'as dull as watching paint dry' adage.
