The upcoming Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Mini notebook will apparently have at least one feature you can’t find on the Asus Eee PC, MSI Wind, or Acer Aspire One: changeable faceplates. I’m not sure how many people buy a laptop based on its ability to accessorize with different outfits. But if there’s a market for cellphone faceplates, why not laptop faceplates?

The Amilo Mini will have run Windows XP and have an Intel Atom CPU and 8.9 inch display. No word on whether the notebook will use a hard drive or solid state disk or whether it will be available outside of Europe.

One reply on “Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Mini gets changeable faceplate”

  1. I think this is a lot more valuble then the way you put it. My phone (Nokia 6230) is 3 years old, but it normally looks brand new. Why? I can buy a new faceplate every 3 months online, normally for about 10 bucks. It’s a front and back cover, a new shell for the phone. Something like a phone gets scratched to heck through everyday life, and this lets me keep it looking new all the time.

    If they made something similar, I think it would be great. Say you drop your notebook, the shell cracks. Just get a new one! no expensive repairs, no living with the damage. I think this could be taken to a higher level with aluminum shells, or something fancy and really durable.

    They probably have a different idea than I do, but I would like to see this someday.
