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!

My medical practice is going electronic and this would be a huge upgrade over the basic laptops we are going with to start. Very cool!!!


From Kathryn Martinez on April 24, 2010 :: 9:02 pm

If I won the HP TouchSmart, I would use it to design my lesson plans and graphic organizers I would use in my classroom.  It would certainly give me more flexibility than using a word processing program!

I may also gift it to my son for his high school graduation.  He’s achieved so much that this gift would be a fitting reward.

From Ellen Beck on April 25, 2010 :: 2:53 am

I have had the same computer since 2004. Our very first computer was a 1998 HP and we used that until it turned upside down and died.(that was when I got the current one) It was then we realize just what kind of computers HP made-reliable and dependable.
I would use this for everything. My husband has a small business, it would be used for that-I prefer desktops due to medical reasons and this would be a dream come true.My computer is my link to the outside world, and wouldnt it be nice to reach out and touch the world….
I subscribed and am also following you on twitter.
Thanks so much for a chance at a dream!
