Will you be writing short (or long) reviews of the units? If so, when can we be expecting to see them up on the site?

Really looking forward to it! I have to admit I have been quite lazy with entering the competitions on the other sites. I also love it how we can recieve all of it, its a pity only to recieve half of it or something like that.

Freitasm: Have you decided what you must do to enter? Will it be cool? Cool

No nothing fancy. Just a simple email drop. Otherwise things get too complicated and not everyone can enter....

After watching those 2 videos on the Touchsmart PC, I must win one! It's an amazing PC and would be perfect for media.

One thing they mentioned in the video was that it has a TV tuner. This wouldn't work in New Zealand, correct?

Only entered on one other site so far, many of them have interesting requirements, such as being a mum, or going on a treasure hunt. Often i read the comments on the ones where you say what you're going to do with it and i simply can't match what some people say in terms of their charitableness.
