CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA – November 09, 2009 – MSI Computer, a leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, is excited to announce the Think! Outside the “Box” Laptop Design Contest. Contestants will submit original skin design ideas for the MSI Wind12 U210. Submissions will be accepted until December 7, 2009 with the winners announced on December 15th, 2009. The winner will be decided by voters at today through December 13th, 2009.

The artist that submits the winning design will receive an MSI U210 custom painted with their design and a new Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch input tablet.  The first and second runner-up will receive a black or white U210 and a new Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch input tablet.  Additionally, three lucky voters will be selected at random to win a U210.

“We have some very creative customers and wanted to reward that creativity with our new Wind12 U210 notebook,” said Andy Tung, Director of Sales for MSI US.  “Furthermore, partnering with Wacom was a natural fit as their products meet the very specific needs of those creative customers.”

Yup. Six free units just like that. By the way, the Wind12 U210 are not going for $500+. On the MSImobile website, it's only going for $470 something. And I'm sure the prices can't go higher than that. I've never heard of Wacom before, but I'm sure they're legit. It's pretty cool how some of the winners get a stencil and digital drawing pad too. You should post some of the submitted designs. Some are pretty awesome. Not many people have voted yet though. I don't think many people know about the contest. Spread the wooooorddd!
