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!

From Kathy on April 26, 2010 :: 6:06 am

I have four kids and a husband that I’m sharing this computer that I’m writing to you on. It is on its last leg.
This computer would be such an amazing win for us !
I would use it for Music and watching DVD’s. My recipe collection would also finally find a home.
My kids constantly fight over who gets the computer due to school work that needs to be done online. There is always one of them that has to get to the library to get it done because there is just so much work to be done, and never enough time.
This computer has so many features that I love. The sketchpad would also come in handy with all the creative kids I live with !


From Tia Carter on April 26, 2010 :: 6:45 am
