win a HP Pavilion dm3 laptop

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

earlier this week on twitter i mentioned that i had a giveaway as HUGE as shaq's shoes in the works, well that said giveaway starts today kids.

i'm giving away a brand new thin and light HP dm3 notebook PC to one of YOU.

shall i repeat that for you to let it sink in?


i'm giving away a brand new thin and light
HP dm3 notebook PC to one of YOU.


and it looks a little something like this...


shiny huh? and to think that sleek design all comes in a 1 inch thin package for mobility ease.

it has some awesome features too, most impressive to me being that the HP dm3 has ultra low voltage processors allowing for up to 10 hours of battery life.

this laptop also comes fully loaded with the newest Windows 7 features like snap, pin, shake and peak to make day-to-day tasks a breeze.

the dm3's HP MediaSmart along with its BrightView LED display, SRS Premium Sound and Altec Lansing speakers make the device ideal for experimenting with music and video - Windows 7 goes even further to enhancing that experience with features like Play To.

to see more on the HP Pavilion dm3 click here, and to see more Windows 7 features click here.

so you probably want to know how you can win this awesome machine now don't you?


the contest is going to run for one week from 12:01am wednesday the 18th, to 11:59pm wednesday the 25th. i'm going to choose the lucky winner of the laptop on thanksgiving, and announce the winner in a post on black friday.


to enter simply leave a comment on this post telling me something you are thankful for -
ENTER AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT.

but there's a twist - you see this isn't only a contest for you guys, it's a contest for me.

there are 8 other bloggers who are also giving away the HP dm3 and whatever blogger generates the most interaction with their contest wins their own laptop.


AND MAMMA NEEDS A NEW LAPTOP!


confession: i'm a blogger and i don't own a computer. which is a utter shame that can be resolved with your help.

  2. Holy fuck. HOW DID YOU GET IN ON THIS SWEET GIG? Who else is competing & how can I screw them over?

    Just kidding. I'll help. And, um, hopefully win. Can I still win even if I just won Starbucks? Because look, I love Starbucks, but I love free computers A LOT MORE.
