A laptop dedicated to an SUV?

NEC co-brands with Nissan X-Trail.

Speaking of co-branding mania: It's one thing for a company to seek out a racing dynasty such as Ferrari or Bugatti to boost sales, but the Nissan X-Trail?

The laptop in question is an NEC LaVie G that's been outfitted with a contoured lid and rust paint job that's supposed to look like the body of the SUV, according to Gizmodo, as well as some assorted logos. Again: Why a Nissan X-Trail? We don't know either, but earlier this year this same laptop took on a hideous (redundant) Hello Kitty persona . So the bar, it seems, isn't exactly sky-high.
