Last night, contestants on the show were required to use HP's Touchsmart PC to create and edit their fabric designs. The Touchsmart line is by far the top-selling touch-screen desktop computer designed for private and small-business use.
Among the judges for the show was designer Vivienne Tam, who uses a Touchsmart computer when creating her own fabrics, and collaborated with HP to create her own line HP computer.
HP even sent out a press release about the show, including a quote from Lance Still, executive VP at The Weinstein Company, which produces Project Runway.
"We’ve had a great collaboration between ‘Project Runway’ and HP this year that was exemplified by the HP design challenge episode," said Still.
Project Runway is also running a contest wherein fans of the show can enter to win an HP Envy 15 notebook, which was one of our holiday gift picks for 2009.
