Toshiba has teamed up with GQ Magazine and four celebrities to create a series of customized, limited-edition laptops for charity. As part of the "Natural Selection" campaign, Steeler's Hines Ward, the Office's Rainn Wilson, Aerosmith's Joe Perry and House actor Omar Epps have all contributed to this project, with each laptop specifically designed to reflect their lifestyles and personalities. To support the four men's chosen charities, these unique collector's items will be auctioned off on eBay this holiday season.
