German electronics vendor Medion has always been a good bet when it comes to hardware on a budget but without diverting from its strength the company has decided to put a neat twist on things.

Pentium M 1.7GHz CPU, 15.4in WXGA display, Intel 900 onboard graphics, g wireless, 40GB HDD, 256MB DDR2 RAM upgradeable to one gig, 3x USB2.0 ports, FireWire, Ethernet, VGA/TV Out, dual layer DVD rewriter.
Laptop comes equipped with a customisable cover that can be used to display anything from personal photographs to designs and logos. An owner simply visits where they can choose from a gallery shot or upload an image of their choice and the company will produce the cover and send it to you for 45 (includes VAT and delivery). For businesses looking to outfit their workers with a distinctive machine or even parents wanting to get their children setup with something fun at little cost this could well be the answer.

The MIM 2220 will be available exclusively from Woolies (yes, that does mean Woolworths Steven!?!) from 1 August and comes with a 12 month warranty which includes telephone and email technical support. Ultimately, even if the customisable cover doesnt appeal you could do a lot worse than save some cash with this.
