Business appilance maker Sharp Systems of America has allied with Laptop Design USA, to offer users and businesses the ability to customize the paint jobs on their laptops.
Through the alliance, Sharp customers ordering new notebooks will have the option of adding graphic design customizations to the lids of their laptops through the services of Laptop Design USA.
"From a company's logo to your favorite NASCAR racing colors, Sharp will offer personalized computers and personalized service, to a very personal purchase," said Mark Romano, marketing director at Sharp Systems of America. "Our alliance with Laptop Design USA offers our customers customization options that are only limited by their imaginations."
As part of the alliance, Sharp is participating in Laptop Design's "Pimp The Laptop" Contest, where users are encouraged to submit their own original designs as entry into both the contest and the sweepstakes. The contest, which is accepting entries until June 15, 2006, includes 30 days of online voting. Winners of the contest and the sweepstakes will be awarded one of several laptops, including Sharp's Actius MC24, a compact and sleek notebook that lends itself to customization, with their design painted on the lid.
"With their clean designs and outstanding performance, Sharp's notebooks provide a great platform for customization," said Peder Blohm, President and CEO of Laptop Design USA. "Demand is rising for notebook computers, and with that rising demand comes the demand for customization options."
