Most netbooks on the market today have the same specs: 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, Windows 7 Starter, and you probably know the rest. So how do you make a netbook stand out from the crowd? Sure, you could buck the trend and go with a faster processor or higher resolution display. But those features will inevitably drive up the price. A much more popular approach seems to be to throw a custom design on the lid. And theme du jour seems to be World Cup soccer.

Yesterday we spotted LG and Samsung netbook models adorned with sports-themed covers. Now it looks like UK PC vendor Hi-Grade is getting on the action, with the Notino mL815E netbook.

As you’d expect, this model has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail processor, 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, Windows 7 Starter Edition, 1GB of RAM, and 250GB hard drive. It also has an “England Red” lid designed to let the world know that you’re a fan of England’s soccer team.

The Hi-Grade Notino mL815E goes for about £311 ($447 US), although Hi-Grade also sells a few cheaper models such as the mL100E, which comes with a VIA C7-M processor.
