Congratulations to our HP TouchSmart winner, Dot S. from Oakham, MA!

HP TouchSmart tm2 tablet PCIf you're a Project Runway fan, you have seen the contestants using HP TouchSmart notebooks to design their fashion creations. The unique, convertible design offers a full-size keyboard and can also be used in slate mode as a sketchpad with a digital pen.

And even if you're not a fashion designer, the versatile HP TouchSmart offers many more uses than a standard laptop:

HP TouchSmart tm2 tablet PC

Display: 12.1-inch LED BrightView touchscreen
Processor: Intel Pentium with integrated graphics
Memory: 3GB DDR3 RAM
Hard drive: 320GB
Wi-Fi: Wireless N
Battery life: 9.75 hours
Software: Bumptop, DigiFish Dolphin, Corel Paint it!,
Microsoft Works 9.0 and Megatouch Games

  • Stay connected even as you cook up culinary delights in your kitchen. The touchscreen gives you quick access to recipes, demonstration videos and photos without the need for a keyboard or mouse.
  • Use your TouchSmart in the family room as a media server. Scroll through music, videos and photos with a flick of your finger, and then send them to your TV using the built-in HDMI port.
  • Turn the touchscreen into a canvas and bring out your artistic side with the included Corel Paint It! software.
  • Rotate the touchscreen and fold it flat to turn your TouchSmart into an eReader using eBooks from Kindle, Barnes & Noble and others.

With all these uses, the HP TouchSmart would make a great gift for Mother's Day or for a new graduate! So in honor of mothers and grads, HP is giving away a TouchSmart tm2 tablet PC (MSRP $899.99) to one lucky entrant!

We travel a lot, so I would use the eBook feature to read while on the road.

If I won, I would give it to my daughter.  Her laptop recently died (4 months out of warranty), and she is starting medical school this fall; this would be a huge help to her.  She also loves to read and has been dying for an e-reader and that function would make her happy, even without all the other benefits.


From Mark/CharmCity on April 23, 2010 :: 4:33 pm

From Carolyn Barnett on April 23, 2010 :: 5:14 pm

I follow on twitter as @carolynishis and i tweeted here.


From Torin Weatherbee on April 23, 2010 :: 5:32 pm

Since i am a fairly avid tech guy, i would use it to type up/edit projects and my homework for school, use it for photo editing as well as just lounge time when i get the opportunity. Ive never had a laptop so i have to borrow my dads or sit on the desktop which is out of the way of everything so it is hard to multitask while using a computer. Plus my birthday is on the 25th so this would be an excellent present!


From Valerie C. on April 23, 2010 :: 5:39 pm

I’m a subscriber who could really use this. I’m a mom, real estate broker, student, and I use the computer a lot. I currently use the desktop, but, this would be perfect for me! Thanks smile


From Jessica on April 23, 2010 :: 5:41 pm

I am a subscriber.

I would love to use this laptop towards my design passion! Its become more than a hobby, so it would be great for my computing needs and then some. I would be able to design gardens and event color scemes using this great machine!
Above all that, it would be a great machine to full fill my business needs and maybe help me be more efficient!
