A few months ago one of my friends was purchasing a new laptop. At first she wanted to get the red Sony VAIO, but decided against it because she felt it wasn’t as professional as a typical gray or black one. I was at Best Buy a few days ago looking at some of the newer styled laptops, and was surprised to see a variety of colors: white, off white, designed, pink, green, and red.
It got me thinking again- would the majority of potential employers or clients consider it “unprofessional” or “juvenile” if i showed up for a job with a pink or green or red laptop in hand?
I personally think that it makes you stand out a little more, and may even show that you have a fun and creative site in addition to being sleek and professional.
What do you think? Please let me know, and hopefully we can get a discussion going!
