As you may have read, Neowin covered the HP Discover conference in Las Vegas and came away with a lot of good information. What we didn’t mention was the fact that HP was having a contest in which some bloggers at the event would be given prizes to give to their readers. Thanks to the comments made on our posts, HP decided to award Neowin with an HP Microserver and one of you are guaranteed to win!
This could be yours!
The server has been upgraded from its base configuration to include 2G of RAM (593921-B21), a SATA DVD-ROM drive (447326-B21), and three years of 13x5, four hour response time hardware support (UR483E).
There are three ways to enter this contest:
- Reply to this post. While nothing specific is required, we’d like you to explain why you think you should be the one to win this server. Sob stories about using soldering irons and duct tape to keep your current rig running may win you brownie points;
- Use the Twitter link to retweet this article and put the hashtag #HP at the end;
- Click the “like” button on this article and/or our Facebook page.
You can enter once per day per method and a winner will be randomly selected and contacted via private message within Neowin. The contest will close on Sunday, June 26th at 11:59pm EST.
While not required, it might also be a nice gesture to follow @HPDiscover on Twitter in order to show HP that we appreciate their partnership with Neowin. In addition, there were many great bloggers at the event and a collection of all of the various articles, videos, interviews, and the like can be found at DiscoveringHP.com.
Now for the fine print:
The contest is open to everyone in the world, assuming you can accept a FedEx shipment from the United States. Winners must provide their full name, email address, shipping address, and phone number. In addition, winners in the United States must complete a W9 form.
[UPDATE]: The winner of the drawing is Brent3000! Congratulations, Brent! Also, thank you to everyone who participated in both this thread as well as the various HP Discover posts that helped convince HP to award us the server! And of course, thank you to HP for providing Neowin with the opportunity to reward our loyal readers!
