colorful notebook lineup lacks the class demonstrated on the wooden laptop we've seen, the personalized approach is in full effect with the FJ290 series. The laptop comes with one of five different lids -- Pink Feather, Orange Flower, Green Flower, Orange Burst, and Blue Burst -- reportedly designed to "reflect an individual's personality." Sony also allows you to engrave up to two lines of text just above the keyboard on the inner casing, just in case you really want to destroy any and all hope for resale. While we know the bright colors are the real draw here, the FJ290 rocks a modest 14.1-inch WXGA display, Intel Pentium Celeron (or M) processor, 512MB of RAM, 40GB hard drive, DVD+R dual-layer burner, built-in webcam, and 802.11b/g, but since the specs are as customizable as the paintjob, you can mix and match the innards to fit your needs (and budget). The oh-so-vivid base configurations are available now for around $1,449.
