Following our previous announcement of this exciting competition, Neowin is proud to be setting somewhat of a creative challenge to all our members, for the chance to win the HP Pavillion HDX 9000 "Dragon" Entertainment notebook package worth over $5000.

Continuing from the dragon-themed prize, we want you to record a short audio clip, no more than one minute in length, telling us what you'd do if you had a real life dragon at your disposal. Alternative pet? Crime-fighting force to be reckoned with? Let us know your thoughts in the most creative way you can imagine. Be it a moody poetry reading, comedy skit or choral singing, entertain us here at Neowin and you could be winning this fantastic prize courtesy of HP and Buzzcorps.

Entries will close on May 27 2008 which gives you seven days from the start of the competition.

So you want a one minute audio file, with creativity and flair, based on what I would do, if the fantasy creature commonly referred to as a 'dragon', were a real life pet?

I got an idea for this, but I'm on holiday :x

I think my laptop (iBook) has a microphone though - If I can cook up a solution I may enter.
