You know how much I love to give things away. I’ll be doing it again here very soon. Instead of giving away something small, we’re giving away a bundle of hardware and software worth over $6000. We are participating in the HP Magic Giveaway! Our contest is now open!.

This holiday season, HP and Microsoft are asking you to consider giving the magic of HP and Windows. This program is being offered through 50 of the top blogs on the Internet today. Each contest will be designed and implemented by the individual sites. The one thing that remains the same is the amazing prize package being awarded to each of the fifty winners! All winners are encouraged to “pay it forward” by giving the gift of magic themselves. Why keep all of these great items under one roof? I’m sure you all know someone who could really use a notebook, or even the TouchSmart. Why not give them a helping hand if you win?

The prize package includes:

Yes, ONE winner from each site will win this amazing package. I have to thank the people at HP and Microsoft for putting together such an amazing contest. Here are the rules for our contest:

  1. Be registered on Geeks.
  2. Submit a how-to, what-is, or top-five article on ANY subject.
  3. The article must be at least 500 words long, with proper punctuation, grammar, usage, spelling. Remember your PUGS.
  4. Articles will not be accepted if they require editing, so have someone you trust proofread for you!
  5. Entries will be posted on my blog.
  6. Whichever post gets the most comments by December 10th at 10pm CST is the winner.
  7. Insipid, short, pointless comments will be deleted.
  8. Get people to comment on your article, but spamming will not be tolerated.
  9. Your article will be cross-linked with your Geeks account.
  10. Email the article to me: [email protected]

  2. Best giveaway EVER! If I won I’d probably give one of the notebooks, the printer, and MS Office to my niece. She could really use a new laptop.

  3. Its quite overwhelming when you think about what HP, Microsoft and so many sites are giving away. HP has exemplified something here, the gift of giving, so why not do the same? If I were to win all this hardware, I definitely could not keep it all. My brother would absolutely love an upgrade from his XP machine to the HP HDX 18 and my other brother would be excited about the HP Mini 1000. Why I would love to win this contest is specifically for the HP Touch Smart and media smart. The all in one printer and laptop I most likely would give away as a Christmas gift to a lucky member at the up coming Church harvest. A lot of folks are in rough economic times (world-wide)right now, giving somebody a laptop might not necessarily make ones life completely better, but its a nice gesture that will make their holidays a very special and memorable one in addition to starting off the New Year with a bang. This collection of devices is screaming, show the good in you, so why not make the ‘smart’ choice of sharing the magic too. Thanks!

  4. Theres no place like home, theres no place like home…

    sorry im just practising my ‘Oz’ Magic 🙂 so i guess i do and them prizes there certainly would make any mans/womans christmas 🙂 so i thank you for doing this chris and HP! welldone i hope who ever wins takes good care of it and follows chris till the end! 🙂

    well done who ever wins!

    God bless!

  5. Now that is a lot of stuff… Are you going to give it all away to one person or disperse it among the Geeks?

  6. Yes I do BELIEVE! And thank you doing such a great thing. Yes I would share the wealth. I would give away probably all of this. I know many who are starting a business and need new computers and my children and grand children are going to school and college and need new equipment. what a wonderful give to give. who ever wins, good luck!

  7. I can’t even find my post for the contest now… I know it is there, I saw it yesterday. If I can’t find it, how are others going to find it to comment. I really don’t like the part about “the post with the most comments wins”… oh well, I’ll just have to keep my fingers crossed.

  8. I havn’t got a clue what to write about yet but I would love to win this HP package. Give me a huint what are other people writing about.

  9. The magic of Windows?
    Is that like the magic of Herpes?
    C’mon Chris, pick up a box of Vista and rub it all over your body…you know you want to.

    By ANY you mean some, right?
    What are the chances that an article explaining why the KDE 4 infrastructure jump had to be taken would win a Microsoft sponsored contest?
