HP Magic Giveaway Contest Winner!

Thanks again to HP, and Microsoft for sponsoring this contest. Special thanks to Chris Aarons and Nick White at BuzzCorps for making it possible, and inviting us to participate.

HP has left the “beige box” behind, and is doing some very creative and amazing work with hardware and software. Just take a look at their TouchSmart series, or HP 1000 mini netbook. We’ll have full reviews of these HP products and more posted soon.

If you haven’t tried Windows Vista, you really ought to. Service Pack 1 and improved driver support have made this a mature and solid operating system. The Windows Live products are some of the coolest software to ever come from Microsoft. They’re all online applications (perfect for that new netbook), and they’re free!

Thanks again to all that submitted comments. If you didn’t win here, try one or more of the other HP Magic Giveaway sites. These contests just started: Student Bloggers, Liliputing, and SDRNews.

And now, without further ado – the HP Magic Giveaway contest winner. Comment 671 belonging to Ben:

I would donate everything BUT the mini 1000 to my church. I wasnt a very religious person, but then went through a rather rough period in my life, and found comfort in the people there. As a design student, I do alot of computer work for them, and one of the computers I have used i know was donated by my family when they were members years ago. They are in need, and I would love to help them!

Thanks!

While the comment was drawn at random, it does seem fitting for the season. As soon as we hear from Ben we’ll publish more information, and we hope he’s able to share his story of sharing magic with us all.

Update: We have received a reply from him, and permission to use his full name. Congratulations Ben Beauvais of Michigan!
