Geekzone HP Magic Giveaway competition (with video)
Posted on 14-Dec-2008 00:00. | Tags Filed under: Promotions.

Welcome to our Geekzone competition, part of the HP Magic Giveaway, a promotion between 50 participating web sites, with the sponsorship of HP and Microsoft. There are 50 prize packages to be won, and you can enter in as many competitions you want - each has its own rules and dates so to maximise your chances to win, visit each of the sites during the competition.

This is the prize package we have for the Geekzone winner:

Hardware (four PCs and one media extender)
- HP TouchSmart IQ816 PC (specs pdf)
- HP HDX 18 series Premium Notebook PC (specs pdf)
- HP MediaSmart Connect (specs pdf)
- HP Pavilion dv4 series Entertainment Notebook PC (specs pdf)
- HP Mini 1000 (specs pdf)

- HP Photosmart C6380 Wireless AIO (printer)
- HP 564 Photo Value Pak

- Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate/Home Premium or Microsoft Windows XP pre-installed on all units (Mini 1000 runs XP)
- Microsoft Office Home and Student Edition 2007 (Student-Teacher Edition) 1 DVD with 3 licenses
- Microsoft Windows Live
- Corel VideoStudio X2

- Kung Fu Panda (2 widescreen DVDs; 1 widescreen Blu-ray disc)

The total retail value of this prize pack would be over US$6,000!

A Magic Giveaway
This is a "Magic Giveaway" so we would like the winner to share the luck - and happiness - with someone special. You are not required to do this, but if you want to send one of the prize items to someone else - a relative who would benefit from a new PC at school or university, a neighbour in need, a school or doctor - we can ship that on your behalf, with a card and all expenses paid.

How to enter
This competition is now closed.

We have a discussion about the HP Magic Giveaway going on here. You don't have to but it would be great if you posted a reply in that discussion telling us about you and if you are to share the prize with anyone tell us why. Posting will not increase your chances, and not posting won't reduce your chances.

Good luck!
