The HP Magic giveaway has kicked off, your chance to win big

I’ve been a bit slow on posting this as I was on the road traveling. The HP Magic giveaway has officially kicked off, with the first bunch of sites — there are 50 participating in total — launching their individual competitions to give away $6,000 worth of HP gear, including the new HP netbook, a touchscreen desktop, and a neat looking media extender (and a few other non-HP bits and pieces). Currently running are contests from Bleeping Computer, Gear Live, Windows Connected, Morningside Mom, Thoughts on poetics & tech, MediaBlab, Neowin, BostonPocketPC, HackCollege, The Gadgeteer, Gotta Be Mobile, and I Started Something. Our own contest will open on the 16th of December.

    I would love to win this giveaway. I want to donate a pc, printer and kung fu blue ray and 1 dvd to the Childrens Hospital.

    This is an awesome giveaway. I would give one to my son who is in the USAF, one to my daughter who’s in college and one for my kids who are still here at home. That leaves another to give to someone that I think could really use it. There are so many families that are in need of a new computer that it would really be hard to choose. Probably I would give it to a single mom of 3 that is trying to put herself through college.
