HP Blackbird PC Giveaway
« on: September 24, 2007, 04:04:04 PM »
if you haven't see the new offerings from HP, you should check this thing out. It is the result of the HP Voodoo merger.

The guys over at Revision 3 are giving one away too!

head on over and enter to win!

I think if you win it would only be fair to let BCC get their hands on it for a week or so in the review labs!

Oh! That computer is very pretty. The base looks sort of impracticle and weak though.
The contest is as simple as registering and writing an article. I might give it a shot on the weekend. Thanks!

Late Addition: HP gave us Blackbirds. We decided the best thing to do is pass them along to you. To be considered, register, go to your profile, click edit your profile, check the box under "Enter to Win," and write an article here. Please make sure to read the rules there too!

well the case will be anything but weak, it is made of solid aluminum. It is basically a big heatsink, and with no components inside weighs 70Lbs. It will support up to 600Lbs sitting on top of it. They are only making 518 of the units, and retail is around $5000 USD each if you get a chance to purchase one. Probably the highest end PC you could build/buy today, bar none.

Well worth the 10 mins it takes to enter.

Oh... I guess I'll have to forward this competition to my relatives in the United States so they can enter for themselves, or for me.  ::)

I wonder why HP hates Canadians?

There are plenty of US only contests, just as there are plenty of Canada only.
