Win An Intel-Powered Laptop!

Dave Zatz —  December 9, 2016

TL;DR Watch the following sponsored video for the opportunity to win a brand-spanking-new Intel-powered laptop for you and a friend.

‘Tis the season… to cash in on some amazing technological values. And I’ve been on the lookout for an economical “gaming” laptop, like this $699 HP Pavillion at Walmart, to upgrade my wife’s aging rig. She’s pretty much the furthest thing from a gamer. Yet, I’ve learned these designations represent tricked out hardware with additional memory, higher-end video cards and processors (6th gen Core i7, in this case). I briefly contemplated a flippy hybrid laptop/tablet, like this Dell Inspiron 2-in-1, which seems to be all the rage, but we’re old and set in our ways.

Of course, “free” is even better than “economical” and Intel will once again gift laptops upon one worthy individual, as last year’s winner describes in the video. While I’m not entering the contest and don’t have the most inspiring story to share, my wife has run our household and her business exclusively from several generations of Windows laptops. And she’s due for an upgrade — modern specs and a touchscreen will absolutely increase her productivity and, just as importantly, her day-to-day comfort.

I suspect most of you know someone in your lives with even more compelling stories. By nominating them to win a PC powered by Intel at the conclusion of the video, you, too, will also pick up a computer should your 300 word narrative be selected.

  1. An experiment, our first sponsored post. I’m pitched several times a month but my editorial control extends to advertisers I choose to work with. Intel and Walmart represent brands I use and endorse, this is the sort of promotion I’d bring to your attention without a partnership, and I have freedom in my writing — so we’re giving it a shot. Also, as long as this post is pinned to top, I’m removing some advertising units to further make it worth your while whether or not you win a laptop. Please let me know what you think (after you enter the contest;).
