Red Robot Leaving The City

Have I shown you my laptop? It’s a Lenovo 3000 C100. Nothing wonderfully spectacular about it.

Until you turn it around:

How cool is that?!

It’s a GelaSkin that I got from Urban Retro. It’s called “Red Robot Leaving The City” by Exploding Dog.

GelaSkins are artistic, protective skins that are easy to both apply (with no annoying bubbles) and remove. There are loads of different designs available. Check them out.

Only I got the wrong size, which is why it doesn’t reach the bottom of the lid where the Ubuntu sticker is. I got the 15″ sticker (because I have a 15″ laptop) and then discovered that I’d ordered the 15″ widescreen sticker. For my 15″ non-widescreen model I should have ordered the 14″ sticker. Of course!

You can check out the proper dimensions here:

I still think that it’s pretty cool.

Probably because I’m a boy. And boys like red robots. That’s official.

(According to the comments, it would appear that girls like red robots too.)
