How many times have customers wandered into your posh cafe only to bolt with scorn when they see that you've let in a Dell, an Acer -- or worse -- an HP?

As much as you'd like to, you can't simply eject the stylishly disadvantaged -- they do help pay the bills after all. And there are just so many of them!

Wouldn't it be nice if all your clients used those ever sleek and stylish MacBooks? You'd attract the type of clients you deserve without having to exclude those less fortunate.

Well...problem solved! Simply lend your style-challenged clients one of our laptop loaner jackets and watch the trendsetters return. The thin Lycra jacket slips over the back of any ugly or poorly branded screen to display the elegant and minimalist bitten apple. Machine washable and inexpensive, laptop loaner jackets can be reused countless times and you needn't worry if any happen to go missing.

Never again will your customers' questionable taste tarnish your cafe's image.

       Hopefully this is a *tongue in cheek* idea, because I really can't stand seeing anyone in those cafes with any kind of laptop. It is so UNcool...

       [+] along the same lines as a loaner jacket/tie in a posh restaurant.

       Yes, you can.   

       // -- they do help pay the bills after all. //   

       Take their wallets before you eject* them.   

       // And there are just so many of them //   

       Thankfully, there's no bag limit.   

       // Wouldn't it be nice if all your clients used those ever sleek and stylish MacBooks? //   

       No.   

       // You'd attract the type of clients you deserve //   

       We disagree.   

       There's a very good reason why the doormen are dressed as penguins ...   

       * We mean that most sincerely, in the Martin-Baker "Zero-Zero" sense.

       This won't work. People with PCs don't leave their houses.
