HP “Spread Joy” Google Chrome Book Giveaway

Filed Under > Uncategorized

A few weeks ago my friends over at HP embarked on their Joy Caravan.  A 8 city tour across the states to spread joy, and technology, this Holiday season.  And lucky me they happened to stop in the A.  So on a rainy, and unseasonably hot day, I headed down to Centennial Park to check out all the new gadgets and spread some joy of my own.

HP isn’t playing this season.  Between the tablets, home systems, audio, and of course the Chrome Book there’s literally something for everyone on your list.  Personally I’m obsessed with the Google Chrome Book.  It’s perfect for my crazy, travel filled life.  With it’s ability to be online all of the time and ease of use I just throw it in my bag and go.  And because I was so in love HP gave me a Chrome Book ($299 value) to gift one of you this Holiday season!  So…you get a Chrome Book, you get a Chrome Book, you get a Chrome Book.  Okay well really only one lucky reader will get a Chrome Book but shouldn’t everyone feel like Oprah even for only a brief moment?  Legal mumbo jumbo below and Happy Monday Loves!  truly, MKR

P.S. Congrats to the winner, Taunya, of our VIETRI giveaway!

The legal mumbo jumbo...this giveaway is open to US residents and will run through Sunday the 15th with our winner announced Monday the 16th.  We’ll be running this all through Rafflecopter (below) which allows you to earn points for each item completed with a simple click of the button.  The more points you earn the more likely you are to win (and remember you probably already have entry points if you’re a regular reader of the blog).  This post and giveaway is sponsored by HP, but my thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

I’m 42 and going back to school in January and really need something portable for class that has a good battery life. Would like to have this for note taking and studying. I’ve heard the chromebooks don’t get viruses! Pretty sweet and I could totally get used to Google Docs, since you can’t download software like MS. I think a chromebook is just what I need. 😀
