So I Have Named the Netbook ...

Tamaki the Toshiba Netbook, named after Kawazoe Tamaki, the petite kendo powerhouse in Bamboo Blade. Tamaki in BB is very shy and is a complete fangirl of a TV anime series called "Blade Braver," which makes the whole thing even more appropriate from my viewpoint.

I think I need to decorate her case with stickers or something. Windows 7 Starter won't even let you change the screen background image without restoring to some 3rd-party product, so I have been unable to make her mine the way I usually do with new devices.

Netbooks do just beg to have stickers attached to them, don't they?

(Sadly, Autor won't let me do anything CUTE to him. It's what I get for naming him after a slightly grandiose grump.)

There are a ton of sites that'll let you print customized removable skins -- I've used both Skinit and Schtickers, but there are others out there too. Since your netbook is a current model, a lot of those sites will probably offer stuff already cut-to-fit (although the one time I did order a presized skin, I actually wound up trimming it down because I didn't like the way it extended over bits where the lit wasn't currently flat -- I was happier with stuff from Schtickers where you have the option of specifying the exact size you want the skin to be during the customization process.

P.S., one other thing to look for Just In Case, since it's kind of non-intuitive -- I see from Googling that M$ very deliberately left the desktop customization ability out of Starter, but from the conversations I'm seeing about it online it looks like *some* netbook/laptop manufacturers make up for it by including their own desktop customization utility. Look through all the random preinstalled apps or your netbook's documentation, if you haven't checked already, or do a search specifying your make and model number.
