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 would love to have this since my computer was stolen. I have to visit my sister, which is nice, to use her computer. This would be great for my receipes. I love HP products.

I’d use it to read books and surf the web.


From Jes G on April 26, 2010 :: 12:41 pm

I would give it to my Mom. Her computer was ruined by my Nephew when he pulled the cords in back and damaged something inside it. She works so hard and just can’t find the extra funds to buy a new one, this would totally get me out of ALL the wrongs I did as a child, lol.

Thanks for the AMAZING giveaway~ truly.


From Brigitte Walsh on April 26, 2010 :: 2:26 pm

Winning the HP TouchSmart would be a dream come true for me!  I would bring it with me on my travels and use it for on-the-spot digital photo editing.  Digital photography is a favorite hobby of mine, and I enjoy photographing interesting points in my travels.  What a pleasure it would be to have the HP TouchSmart with me on my trips for photo editing and immediate sharing with family and friends!

From Jay Norlund on April 26, 2010 :: 5:51 pm

I am an email subscriber.

I would use it in my (volunteer) calling as Young Mens President for my church. I would be able to keep track of what the boys need to do and achieve, goals, campouts and activities, awards and needs as well as keep organized in the various meetings. It would be a lifesaver.


From McDuffy on April 26, 2010 :: 5:59 pm

From Linda on April 27, 2010 :: 1:37 am

I’m a subscriber, and I’m not going to give you a sob story, be generous, or tell you I have a need for this for some worthwhile cause. I would keep this baby for myself! My daughter gets everything she needs and most everything she wants, and so does my husband. I’m not sharing. Mom gets the goods this time wink


From Hugo De La Rosa on April 27, 2010 :: 11:11 am

I would use it primarily as a work PC. I work @ a small Catholic school, and ever since I got a chance to play with one of these I’ve been lobbying to get one. As a travelling teacher, it would be great to be able to keep all of my information (Seating charts, phone call lists, lesson plans, print-outs, gradebook software, etc.) with me as I go from room to room! Our tech budget is modest, and splurging on one of these just isn’t feasible. So here’s hoping! smile

Blessings & Peace,
Hugo De La Rosa III


From les g on April 27, 2010 :: 11:14 am

I could really use this at work, as we have no modern techy stuff at the job.


From Robin Bradley on April 27, 2010 :: 11:32 am

I was recentley laid off and I am going back to college.  I need a new computer so bad.  I would use it to help me with my college classes.  I would take more online classes to be avail for my 4 boys more.


From Cheryl L on April 27, 2010 :: 11:33 am

I would let my two kids that are in high school use it for homework.

From angela alterescu on April 27, 2010 :: 12:31 pm

if i won this, i’d have something to do while i was doing laundry in my dreary, dark & boring basement!


From Deborah R on April 27, 2010 :: 1:16 pm

If I won, I’d use the TouchSmart for my volunteer work and for personal use…I’d finally have a computer I wouldn’t have to share yay!

I am disabled. I think it would be nice to win this so it would be easy for me to look recipes up in the kitchen. Rather than have to go to the desk top computer.


From Brittany on April 27, 2010 :: 6:06 pm

I would give it to my mom for mothers day. She really needs a new computer, as its not easy to get on the computer while sharing it with 5 other people.


From Crystal on April 27, 2010 :: 6:16 pm

I subscribed! and I would use the HP to get out of this dusty dark ole office when I want to use a computer and do my internet wonderings out on my back deck in the sunshine!!!


From Mark Price on April 27, 2010 :: 7:13 pm
