It may be time for Lenovo tosome of its designers. As much as we appreciated the way it integrated the " " Olympics theme into its red " " laptop, its latest effort is a little kooky.
The company has come up with a "Winter Edition" of its Y410 Audio DJ Series, featuring what it calls a "Snowmountain" theme on the lid of the 14.1-inch laptop. Mumbai-based TechShout says the computer, which was designed specifically for the Indian market, bears the outline of the world's five highest mountains--Makalu, Lhotse, Kanchenjunga, K2, and Mount Everest (in ascending order)--to reflect a "vertical state of mind." The interior, meanwhile, "features a vignette of a mountaineer, scaling a peak that stand for the endurance, challenges, aspirations, and the constant climb towards quality and success."
With all that lofty symbolism, you'd think they would have put a little more effort into the artwork. Looking at this picture, we first thought a kid had taken a Sharpie to his dad's computer.
