IBM Joins Apple and Others in Adding Color to its Hardware Palette
Color is the key with IBM ThinkPad I-Series 1400 notebooks. Purchasers will soon have a choice between seven covers that snap on to the notebook computers. Colors range from a metallic green to the corporate "big blue."
This particular line of notebook computers is only 12 months old, but IBM believes the color choices add to the personalization associated with today's computing needs. The new covers also mimic the hot market established by Apple with its I-Mac line of notebook computers. Also in the game is Dell and Hewlett-Packard.
According to IBM sources, the company also may introduce other new colorful covers, including university or college logo covers.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
