Hardware, Embedded Systems ColorWare, a company which offers pre-coloured (my apologies for using that abomination of an English word) notebooks and desktops using a special coating process, has added the MacBook Pro to their product line up. If you find Apple's standard grey too boring, maybe a red or a black MacBook Pro is your game. They also offer coloured Mac Minis, iBooks, iMacs, Alienware computers, and more. You can also send in hardware you already own. They say they have some magical Wonderland procedure to paint the computers, but whether or not the process creates a tough layer of paint remains to be seen from customer testimonies.

"Coloured" is British spelling. Weren't you made aware of that fact in school?

I prefer the British spelling. I think it looks better, and it also helps I study the RP version of English as university.

I do mix up every now and then though.

I know, Thom - the comment was not for you. I also think British spelling looks better. Most, if not all, people in Europe learn British English at school.

But considering the brandname is "Colorware" and not "Colourware", I think the non-British version would've been more applicable. ;)

And http://www.colourwarepc.com is an icky advertising redirect. ;)

I'd like to think that us Americans would just chalk it up to this being an international website. Heck, I'm in the US and I've occasionally spelt it 'coloured' or 'flavoured' or 'realise'

Anyway, this phenomenon has always amused me. I'm not interested in buying colored palmrests, I don't think I'd get a fashionable cell-phone faceplate to replace the one it came with, and the whole colored ipod case thing has kinda baffled me. Case? Yeah. Designer case? I doubt it.

But I'm a technical kind of guy; I purchase things based on what they can do, and (if it comes down to a really ugly layout/design) how they already look. Go figure.
