Nissan, NEC are of the same stripe in laptops

PC designed to match the colorful design of the Nissan March.

NEC

We've got to hand it to NEC and Nissan. As silly as we found the their SUV-inspired laptop , there's something admirably cheeky about their special edition that's supposed to match Nissan's March mini-car (aka the Micra in Japan), in all its striped insanity.

The pattern looks as if it was lifted from a drawer liner created by an overcaffienated interior designer of the '60s. It even comes with a slip cover made of the same material used for the car's seat upholstery, according to Digital World Tokyo.

We really shouldn't be surprised by any of this, considering that the laptop is NEC's LaVie G. As noted before, once it went down the Sanrio road to hell , all bets were off.
