HP $6000 Magic Giveaway; yet again!

Posted by 26 November, 2008 (0) Comment

Some of you might remember that HP had a big giveaway arranged through different blogs of a very expensive desktop replacement laptop and some softwares with it. It was a joint initiative of Microsoft, HP & BuzzCorp.

I am not sure if it’s being handled through BuzzCorp again but Microsoft & HP are surely together in this one too. I participated in almost every blog the last time, lol, and I hope I can do the same again. Everyone can join in this time too I think, it’s not just a US only competition :D which is excellent.

So what does $6000 get you?

* HP TouchSmart IQ816 PC (infamously used in Windows 7 multi-touch demoes)
* HP HDX 18 series Premium Notebook PC
* HP MediaSmart Connect digital media receiver
* HP Pavilion dv4 series Entertainment Notebook PC
* HP Mini 1000
* HP Photosmart C6380 Wireless AIO multifunction
* HP 564 Photo Value Pak
* Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate and Home Premium preinstalled
* Microsoft Office 2007 Home and Student Edition
* Corel VideoStudio X2
* Kung Fu Panda (DVD & Blu-ray)

The competition starts soon and more details on how you can enter at this site will follow, but I just want to say for today I have the utmost respect for HP and Microsoft, who under less than ideal economic situations is going to make this holiday season a memorable one for at least 50 people, their friends and family.


Make sure you participate!

You better hurry check their Guide here and grab a few keys (yes, you can get multiple keys, their subscription time begins when you first use them so they will be good for a later date as well) because ESET and the forum will notice this sooner or later and it will be removed.
