It is clear that people want to express themselves and show their uniqueness. This competition has created some very interesting designs and we're proud to be supporting HP with initiatives like this," Mr. Buss continues.

The winning design and sample skins from the runners-up will be showcased at HP's 17,000 square foot booth at CES 2008.
