The HP Magic Giveaway

This holiday season, HP and Microsoft is giving you the magic of HP and Windows. But if you're like me who likes something a little more tangible, some really cool gadgets. The magic box includes a HP TouchSmart multi-touch all-in-one desktop computer, not one but two state-of-the-art notebook PCs, a new HP Mini 1000 netbook so you too can be hip over the holiday break, a Photosmart multifunction so you can do lots of things with one device, a media server to watch all your cool "movies" on the big TV, software to make everything work, plus the kickass (no pun intended) Kung Fu Panda movie in DVD and Blu-ray. Is that enough for Christmas? I think so.

The second most important bit.

For being good sports, Windows Vista users are elibigle for a bonus entry (thus doubling your chances of winning). To claim your bonus entry, download and run the application below to verify your eligibility. If you are eligible, it will then prompt you to enter the email address you've submitted previously and add a bonus credit to your entry. If you don't use Vista, now would be a good time to check it out at a friend's house.

Competition closed.

The text you can't be stuffed reading.

Only one entry per person. Split personalities do not qualify. Anyone found submitting multiple entries will be automatically disqualified and cursed with a spell that will have little to no effect. Friends and families of HP and Microsoft are eligible to enter, but you'll probably have better chances begging such employees for freebies yourselves. If under the circumstance Long picks himself as the winner, you reserve the right to kick him and make him pick another winner.
