Toshiba teams with GQ on limited notebook auction

Toshiba has teamed up with GQ magazine on auctioning off notebooks designed by four famous men. The 'artists' include Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward, actor and writer Rainn Wilson, rock musician Joe Perry and actor and producer Omar Epps, with each designing the exterior and interior look of four different Toshiba Satellite notebooks.

Ward's design includes a rendition of him as a football player on the outside lid of the 18.4-inch Satellite P505 multimedia notebook. Rain Wilson chose illustrator Mike Mitchell to design the look of the 14-inch Toshiba Satellite M505. Joe Perry chose a classic black and white image for the exterior of the 18.4-inch Qosmio X505, while Omar Epps shows off Brooklyn Bridge on the 16-inch A505 to pay homage to his hometown.

The auction starts on November 27th. Proceeds from the sale of the limited-edition notebooks will go to each designer's chosen charity, including the Hines Ward Helping Hands Foundation, MONA Foundation, Project AWARE and the Mount Calvary AME Church.
