Why are laptops usually so plain? (On the outside at least.)

Unlike things like guitar and other musical instrument cases – and even briefcases – I rarely see laptops that are decorated with stickers. I found the following image via the iGoogle gadget 'Notebook Photos'. That gadget puts a picture of a different notebook onto your iGoogle home page at regular intervals. One day this appeared. It is by Karin Lizana and originally comes from Flickr where the Laptop Stickers group can also be found. It appealed to my sense of geekie-ness. It seems that there are people out there who like to decorate their laptops, after all.
