Digicamhelp has written quite good tips on shooting electronic products over digitalcamerareview.
Here are some tips on photographing a notebook:
“Take most shots on the same level as the notebook. Photograph it at different angles that will illustrate various sections of the notebook. Make sure to capture detail. Take several photos of the same area, and then use only the best shots.
Don’t completely fill the viewfinder when framing shots. You’ll need the extra area to work with if you must crop or straighten an image. Also watch horizontal lines so the sides of the notebook are parallel to the edges of the photo. If you don’t get it just right, you can straighten the image when editing.”
