Intel this week said it is offering as much as US$1 million in prizes to the PC designer and maker that builds the most stylish small computer optimized for multimedia use at home.
“Our intent with the Intel Core Processor Challenge is to think outside of the box — think sexy, small and sleek PCs optimized for multimedia entertainment — and we’re putting our money where our mouth is,” said Eric Kim, vice president and general manager for Intel’s Digital Home Group, in a statement.
The contest will include payouts for the mass production and marketing of the winning design. The judges will include Intel CEO Paul Otellini and GQ magazine’s associate editor.
The winner is expected to be announced at the Intel Developer Forum in March in San Francisco.
