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!

I’d use it for work when I’m home.


From Edi Jenkins on April 24, 2010 :: 9:56 am

I would have a blast working with all the photos I have taken of friends and family over the past years. It would make it easier to share them, too.  I can’t wait!


From david basile on April 24, 2010 :: 9:56 am

i could get rid of my older pc its a tank this sleek nice and would be oh so useful


From amber on April 24, 2010 :: 10:31 am

This notebook is beautiful, I love the sleek design and all of the features. As much as I’d like to keep it, I would give it to my mom, she’s disabled ans has problems using her arms for long periods of time. So the Touchsmart capability would be awesome for her! She could use the Touchscreen with ease, and not have to worry about using her arms for long periods of time by using a mouse to do everything. Also, the swiveling neck of the screen means she can use it in any way that would be comfortable for her. I’d be so thrilled to win this! Thanks so much.


From jeanne on April 24, 2010 :: 10:31 am

I have a small home business and this be wonderful for that.

Am an ardent sweepstaker and use email a lot to communicate with my 4 granddaughters so would definately use this. But besides that I am assisting my youngest son in getting his own business up and running and know this would be a super computer for that purpose as he will be going out to customers unstead of having them come into the shop and this would be a great travel companion.  Leave it to HP to come up with something so fine as this.  Fingers crossed here in the Poconos.

From C. S. on April 24, 2010 :: 3:32 pm

I’m an injured seamen, living on an extremely limited income.
When I shipped out, I placed all of my belongings in storage.  When I shipped home, I discovered that almost everything had been damaged by water via a flood and a leaky roof.
I was able to salvage some items and managed to piece together a few old components to make the computer I’m on now. It’s slow as a snail;  on it’s last wired leg and even that is spliced. LOL

I can’t and won’t be able to afford to buy a new one. Every cent goes towards medical expenses.

What would I do if I won the Touchsmart?


Thank you for your consideration.


From Theresa Jenkins on April 24, 2010 :: 3:54 pm
