London IT Solution provides a range of IT support services for businesses and home users – and also offers PC hardware, including custom-built desktop and laptop computers.

Most conspicuous among these bespoke systems are custom-paint finish laptops such as the LITS-L15 seen here. In terms of specification it’s no cutting-edge notebook – but then neither is its price in that realm.

At heart the LITS-L15 is a generic Clevo M660SR chassis with 15in screen, running an Intel Core 2 Duo processor at 1.5GHz, with 2GB of RAM and 120GB hard drive. Only the supporting Northbridge/Southbridge chips and graphics processor stand out as a little unusual, since these are provided by VIA rather than the usual suspects of Intel and ATI or nVidia.

Externally we have quite a different story. Our LITS-L15 was provided in a creamy-white colour with a glossy metallic finish, but it’s possible to specify any colour you like at the time of purchase. The spray paint finish extends to the lid top, screen bezel and main body, and appears to be quite durable.

In the Worldbench 6 real-world benchmark test the LITS-L15 scored 56, about right for a laptop using a dual-core Intel processor of that speed. As you would expect from a portable without a dedicated graphics card, its graphics performance excludes it from modern 3D games, although unlike the usual on-board Intel graphics we see on lower-cost laptops, the L15’s VIA Chrome9 graphics were struggling to achieve even 1 frame per second in our standard FEAR test. Battery life was also underwhelming, with 2 hours 6 minutes recorded in a productivity test.

The LITS-L15 is a competent if unexciting 15in widescreen laptop, but what sets it apart is its colour options. In a market that still comprises mostly plain or dark coloured notebooks, LITS makes an attractive proposition to customise your laptop’s colour to create something truly personal.

    AVADirect’s kitchen-sink Clevo X8100 laptop aims to replace desktop gaming PCs for LAN parties. The system falls just a bit short.

  • HP ProBook 4520s review

    HP ProBook 4520s

    The HP ProBook 4520s is a stylish 15-inch business laptop. It is based on the Intel Core i3-350M processor, offers very good performance, and marries one-of-a-kind looks and design with adequate business features without upsetting your budget overmuch.

  • Toshiba Satellite A660-15T review

    Toshiba Satellite A660-15T

    At first glance, the Toshiba Satellite A660-15T looks like a one of Toshiba's typical business laptops. It's not shiny, pretty or finished with silver trim – it's matt black on matt black with a bit of subtle texturing, which we suspect is there more for grip than appearance.
