Quote

Paul Moore, Senior Director of Mobile Product Management, Fujitsu Computer Systems:

"With existing color notebooks, you're stuck with that color for the life of the notebook. Swappable Fujitsu covers allow you to not only express yourself, but to change the expression. Like a chameleon, you tailor your computer color to your environment. Fujitsu is the first to offer covers you can change, and has engineered the lids so they easily snap on and snap off the LCD cover. With PCs now being a personal expression of the individual, and in many instances a fashion accessory, accessorizing the PC was a logical step."
