HP Notebooks Giveaway

  • 873 comments

This dad blogger is giving away two HP notebooks. Today is the start of the HP Back to School: Better Together Giveaway on my dad blog. Thanks to Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, and Timbuk2, Daddy Forever is giving away a HP DV6 Laptop, a HP Mini 110 Netbook, and a Timbuk2 notebook bag to one lucky winner. If the winner is located outside of the USA, a HPShopping.com credit will be given for the value of the notebooks companion bundle. My contest runs September 2nd through September 6th (Pacific time: UTC-7 time zone). The winner will be announced on Monday, September 7th. The winner will have 48 hours to claim the prizes (be sure to look for the winner announcement on Monday).

HP Laptop Giveaway - 25 notebooks and netbooks

How to Enter
There are four ways to enter the HP Notebooks Giveaway. You can enter up to four times, but only once in each category. No sad stories, bribes, or blood sacrifices please (the winner will be randomly selected). Below are the four ways you can enter:

  1. Select Your Own HP Companions
    HP is giving away the DV6 laptop and the Mini 110 netbook as a companion set. In other words, the DV6 is your main computer and the Mini 110 is your computer on the go. If you could pick your own companion set, which computers would you select from the HP web site? Let me know by leaving a comment. You can select the DV6 OR the Mini 110 as part of your combo, but you can’t select the DV6 and Mini 110 together (ie: DV6 and xyz OR Mini 110 and abc, but NOT DV6 and Mini 110 — that would be too easy). You can select two HP notebooks or a HP notebook and a HP desktop computer as your companion bundle.

  2. Suggest a Mom or Dad Blog
    In the comments area, recommend a dad or mom blog. List the title of the blog and the web address. To prevent copying, you can’t suggest a mom or dad blogger that someone else has already recommended. You also can’t suggest Daddy Forever or your own blog. By mom or dad blog, I’m going to define it as a blog written by a father or mother. (Note: Some comments are held in moderation for various reasons and will be inserted in the appropriate time slot once the comment has been approved. If this results in a duplicate of your suggestion, you may recommend another mom or dad blog. It’s your responsibility to check before the deadline.)

  3. Tweet or Retweet About the Laptop Giveaway
    You can enter by tweeting about the HP Notebooks Giveaway. Use this retweet link (you need to be logged into Twitter) or write your own tweet. Be sure to include the url to this post (http://daddyforever.com/2009/09/02/hp-laptops-notebook/ or the tiny url version) and the hash text (#HPBTS) so I can find it. It would be a good idea to let me know about your tweet in the comments area or via the contact form (just in case I missed the tweet).

  4. Write About the Laptops Giveaway
    If you have a blog or web site, write about my HP notebooks giveway and link to this post (http://daddyforever.com/2009/09/02/hp-laptops-notebook/). Let me know the URL of your post in the comments area or via the contact form (in case the trackback doesn’t show up).

  • HP DV6 Laptop (Intel Core 2 Duo P7350, 4GB RAM, 16″ screen (1366 x 768 pixels), 500GB SATA HDD, BluRay LightScribe DVD drive – specs may be different than the one I reviewed)
  • HP Mini 110 Netbook (Intel Atom 270, 1GB RAM, 10.1″ display (1024 x 576 pixels), 160GB SATA HDD, 6 cell battery – specs may be different than the one I reviewed)

  14. HP Pavilion Elite e9180t for Desktop PC (High Performance) & HP Pavilion dv3t for Notebook (Portability & performance)

  15. If I had to pick two HP products, I would pick the HP TouchSmart IQ500t series desktop, as well as the HP TouchSmart tx2z series laptop. If you havent noticed, like touch screens ;)

  16. As far as an HP companion set, I would pair an HP Pavilion Elite 9110 with the Mini 110. That would be a sweet combo.

  17. The bundle I would pick would be the IQ800t all in one desktop and the dv4t laptop. They would probably work the best for me. But I’d love the bundle you are giving away too!

  18. hello!
    my picks for a hp bundle hould be a hp pavilion slimline s5150t as a main computer and the hp touchsmart tx2z as my portable device. That would work just great for me.

  19. My best companion bundle will be the HP Pavillion DV7T series with its 17.3 inch widescreen display and maxed out specs, and the HP Touchsmart TX2Z series with its 12 inch multi-touch tablet display.. The HP DV7T will be my main PC and the HP TX2Z will me my mobile PC.

  20. My HP Companions:

    HP TouchSmart IQ800t for my home computing n’ entertainment needs…

    HP TouchSmart tx2z as my mobile companion.

    (yes, i’m a ‘touch’y guy!) The concept of touch computing has amazed me since a while…

  21. My bundle would be:
    - HP Pavilion Elite e9110t desktop
    - HP Pavilion dv6t laptop

    The specs and the prices seem ok for me.

  22. I’d take the HP HDX 16t Premium series and the HP TouchSmart tx2z series which seems like a sweet combo to me.

  23. My fave mommy/daddy blog is: http://millionairemommynextdoor.com/

    And my bundle would include an amazing laptop to get me past college: HP HDX 16T Premium and a secondary place to backup my work to (I’m a photographer and live in constant fear that my current POS laptop is about to kick the can and I’d lose all my work!!): HP Pavilion Elite e9105z series

    Thanks for running this contest!!
    .-= Lisa´s last blog ..5 Celebrity-Inspired Back to School Beauty Ideas =-.

  24. My companion bundle would be the HP TouchSmart IQ800t series for my office and the HP HDX 18t Premium series for travel

  25. HP TouchSmart IQ800t series desktop and the HP HDX 16t Premium series laptop would be my companion package. I love the all in one desktop. It is awesome and the lappy is an entertainment dream.

  26. TouchSmart tx2z and mini 10 – both light and ready to go, but one for heavy work/design and one that you feel comfortable taking everywhere

  27. My HP companions would be the HP TouchSmart IQ800t series my main computer and the HP HDX 18t Premium series my computer on the go

  28. 1. I would choose the HP Mini 110 XP and the HP TouchSmart IQ500t. The TouchSmart would be a great base computer to use along with the very portable Mini 110

  29. my ultimate netbook notebook combo would be:

    HP HDX 18t performance notebook

    and

    HP Mini 110 XP netbook with more ram and ubuntu remix

    now i just need to find a bag of free cash.

  30. My companion bundle of choice would be the HP Touchsmart IQ800t (giant screen, a million features) and the HP Mini 110XP (for my retro style of computing).

  31. The HP Mini 1120NR Netbook is much like the 110 Mini in its portable size and mobile Internet capabilities but with increased processing power it is a perfect match for the DV6. The 1120NR Netbook combined with the DV6 allow you to complete crucial work on the tightest deadline,either at home or on the road.

  32. HP Mini 110 XP & HP HDX 18t Premium series – the first for on the go needs & the second because I need a premium monitor to work intensively with product photography & spend so much time editing photos.

  33. I love DKMommySpot.com for a mommy blog – natural wisdom, eco-friendly & great giveaways plus tons of personality.

  34. Hey, I just tweeted, but thought I might as well include my “Entry #1″ – my HP companions.

    I’d choose the “HP EliteBook 8730w Mobile Workstation (FZ632PA)” for myself, and the DV6 for my wife. I’m a bit of a gamer, so being able to do that, plus surf the web wirelessly, watch DVDs, etc… that’s what I’d like, if I had a massive budget to spend! My wife, on the other hand, mostly just surfs the net, and watches the occasional DVD, which is why the DV6 would be good for her.

    Both of these are available on the HP New Zealand website, which is where I live. :)
    .-= Jason´s last blog ..bassmanjase: RT @daddyforever Win 2 HP notebooks and a Timbuk2 laptop bag http://bit.ly/10Wh6E #HPBTS =-.

  35. My companion bundle would be:
    The HP Pavilion dv6z Artist Edition 2 series laptop and the HP TouchSmart IQ500t series desktop. I love the touch screen concept!

  36. Well, to be honest, that’s the combo I probably would choose! I currently have a Pavilion 1000 and it’s been great – for the last four years! Time to upgrade! But, if I have to choose a different one, let’s go all out and go with the HDX 18t – http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/shopping/computer_can_series.do?storeName=computer_store&category=notebooks&a1=Category&v1=Performance+and+entertainment&series_name=HDX18t_series Oh, and I would definitely get the optional built-in TV tuner! For the netbook I would go great with the HP Mini 110.

  37. I have GeekDad on my RSS. If Jason were my neighbor, our wives would NEVER see us or their kids. We’d always be gone firing 2L water bottle rockets, geocaching, etc. Of course, my wife would probably join in the fun too!

    http://www.wired.com/geekdad/

  38. Contest Entry:
    I’d get the Mini 110 and the other would be the HP HDX18t Premium Series Notebook PC – 2.53Ghz Cache, 400GB Dual HD – Solid State Drive 80GB + 320GB, 3GB RAM, BluRay ROM + DVD+/-RW Dual Layer (would never have the money to afford this one, UNLESS I WIN IT IN A CONTEST??)

  39. the combo I would choose HP TouchSmart IQ800t and HP Mini 110 XP but then even just 1 of these would be better than using internet cafes and any computer i can find to use as I don’t own one myself at all at moment.

  40. The dv3t series for travel, and the HDX 18t Premium for the software I use for work, which takes a lot of resources.

  41. My dream HP combo:- the TouchSmart tx2z with touch-screen function and the Elite e9180t for home gaming and entertainment. Of course, with Syncables to ensure the two are always in sync!

    As for the hardware choice, that was tough but I think I would pick the HP HDX 16T with the HP Mini 110 XP. I think that would give me all that I need.

  45. I’m liking the look of the HP touchsmart tx2z–it would be super nice for easy transport–car/plane rides, watching movies, fun stuff with the HP Pavillion dv7t for my at home work zone.

  46. I posted about this offer on my facebook but I don’t have a twitter account. However, the following would be life changing for me in a very good way!

    HP Pavilion Elite e9180t series desktop

    And…

    HP HDX 18t Premium series laptop

  47. I would pair the HP Pavilion Elite e9180t as the computer for home use and the HP Pavilion dv6z as the computer on the go.

  48. I’d pick the HP DV6 and an HP Pavilion Elite e9180t desktop. It would be nice to have a high-performance desktop computer.

  49. I think the HP Pavilion dv7-2000 Entertainment Notebook PC would be great for home and has a huge screen which is perfect for watching my movies. For travelling and school purposes, I love the Compaq Presario CQ50-200 Notebook PC.

    Thanks!!

  78. For my Own HP Companions I would choose HP Pavilion Elite e9110t series so i can do my uni work on fast computer as i got a slow computer :( and HP Pavilion dv7t series

  79. I think I would choose the HP HDX 18t and the HP Mini 110 XP Edition (because my wife would use the Mini, and doesn’t like Linux).

  80. Easy enough, would select the HP TouchSmart IQ800t all in one and the HP HDX 16t Premium for my Notebook. Two excellent products to meet anyone’s needs.

  81. My kids were in awe at the sight of the HP TouchSmart, so I would pair the HP TouchSmart IQ800t all in one desktop for my family with The HP Mini 1099er Vivienne Tam Special Edition notebook for me, since I am a girly girl. I think that would make for a cute and highly functional companion bundle! ((wishful thinking))

  82. I follow and enjoy reading so many blogs but one of my very favorites is http://mommydaddyblog.com/, which follows the lives of Sheena, Greg and their infant son Jayden. Its pretty neat to read their updates and the baby’s milestones, photos and they have great family related reviews, too.

  83. 1. If price was not concern, I would probably stick with the mini 110 but opt for the HDX 18t as the main computer since it has full 1080p resolution.

    2. There is an indie music blog I visit at least once a day called http://www.Hearya.com. It’s written by a few guys, at least two of whom I think are fathers. There have been several occasions where they have written about taking their kids to concerts and meeting the bands they have in for sessions.

    3. Following you as @Trav_D and RT’ed about the contest.

    Thanks!!!

  84. Well, if I had all the money in the world… I’d choose the HP Touchsmart IQ800t and the HP Mini 110 XP for on the go.

  85. HP TouchSmart tx2z series and the HP Mini 110
    The mini looks great and easy to use, plus really light which counts alot to me.

  86. If I could pick my own companion set, I would select the HP Pavilion dv2z (I love how light & thin it is!) and the HP Mini 110 (which is even lighter!) as my computer on the go.

  87. This would be amazing! I just started my own small business *and* enrolled in college for the first time…and I’m 26 years old. So I’m super nervous about both things, but also really excited. This package would be a HUGE help. Thanks so much for hosting the giveaway!

    Bundle I would love from HP: HP TouchSmart tx2z series, HP Mini 110 XP edition series.

  88. My alternative combination would be the HP TouchSmart tx2z for mobile computing and note-taking, and the HP HDX 16t for high-performance and at-home computing.

  89. I tweeted!
    I would choose the HP Pavilion Elite e9180t desktop computer, and the HP HDX 18t Premium Laptop to be my companions.

  90. I would pick HP touchsmart IQ 800t HP mini110XP

    mom blog site: mommaven on Twitter or themommaven.com on web

    I follow you on twitter & tweeted the contest twitter name is jbafaith

    Thanks!

  91. Along with the HP Mini 110 Netbook, I would pick an HP Pavilion Elite e9180t with a 25″ Diagonal 16:9 Full HD Widescreen Monitor.

  92. I recommend http://mooshinindy.com/ blog.

    From her About page: “I like to write about motherhood, food, photography, humor, serious stuff, infertility, strong feelings towards my vacuum, my religion, working through depression and life in Indiana.”

  93. 1) My HP companions:
    I’d love the HP Pavilion dv6z Artist Edition 2 series since I don’t own a laptop and normally have to borrow one for a class I teach a few times a year. I’d pair that with the HP Pavilion p6180t series desktop computer which would make the perfect computer the entire family could use. I like that it has the ability to watch Blu-Ray discs; when the rest of the family hogs the tv here I usually pop a movie into our ancient desktop, hook up my headphones and watch a movie on my PC.

  94. Regarding the bundle my two picks would be:

    HP Mini 110 XP Edition (I have a soft spot for XP, and would thoroughly enjoy having it as part of my portable netbook. I would use this extensively for around campus note-taking, researching, etc…)

    and

    HP HDX 18t Premium (with a 4gb upgrade) (My laptop is probably 5-6 years old now, and has served its purpose well, and I’ve loved it… but honestly, it’s time to upgrade, and I’d like to get a top of the line machine to serve me another 5-6 years. I would use this extensively for schoolwork, music composition, and probably gaming since I’d then have the ability to do so ;) )

  95. I’d Pick the Hp HDX 18t as the big mothership computer & Have the Hp tx2 Touchsmart as the Portable Companion =D

  96. I’d go all out with the HP Pavilion Elite e9180t series as my desktop headquarters and would use the HP Mini 110 XP for classes and assignments on the go.

  97. If I’m putting together my dream system, the one I can’t begin to afford, I’d choose the HP HDX 18t Premium with 8GB DDR3 System Memory and the 660GB hard drive. The speed and power would enable my husband or I to use it for graphic design, plus we don’t have a blu-ray player, so it’d be awesome to have one in the computer.

    For the partner, I’d like the HP Mini 110 XP edition in Pink Chic or White Swirl. The portability would make it awesome for carrying on routine shopping expeditions so we can comparison shop while on the go.
    .-= Auriette´s last blog ..Goodbye, Magnolia =-.

  98. I travel quite a bit and I am addicted to the internet. I hate having to carry my personal laptop because it also contains personal info I wouldn’t want to love. I would love to have the HP Mini 110 to be able to have my fix of email and twitter without worrying about losing my big laptop. THe companion would be the HP Pavilion p6180t series desktop computer. I like having a desktop in the house especially for guests who need to acces the internet.

  99. I can recommend a blog? Yay! My favorite dad blogger wouldn’t call himself that, but he blogs, and it usually involves his daughter, fatherhood, and products. In fact, I’d say he is the ultimate dad blogger, and he doesn’t even know it! James Lileks is an outstanding writer. Check him out here:

    .-= Spoodles´s last blog ..YoBaby Giveaway =-.

  100. I would choose the HP TouchSmart tx2z series for my travels, and for home the HP Pavilion Elite e9180t series, since I love to play games online and watch movies.

  101. My preferred combo would be two laptops with accelerated graphics capabilities. Luckily, the HP offers some great laptops:

    HP HDX 16t Platinum
    HP HDX 18t Platinum

    Both of these offer NVIDIA GeForce cards, which is crucial for my family, because we’re all gamers!

  102. My choice for a pair if the HP Touchsmart , that is just so cool, and so much more than a computer! And I would need something mobile so I would choose the HP Pavilion dv7t series. It has so much and can entertain you too.

    The blog I would choose (I checked and I didn’t see it mentioned here yet)
    http://blog.thescienceofbeingdad.com/
    The Science of Being Dad! by Adam Cashman. I am subscribed to his and his wifes blogs. His wifes is The Art of Being Mom just to let you know about it too.

    I tweeted: http://twitter.com/jenni104/status/3786157258

  103. #1 – my companions would be the HP TouchsmartIQ800t for home and an HP dv4t to be mobile. Thanks

  104. I like mochadad.blospot.com. He’s a really awesome guy. mochadad.com is also his website.

    If I could choose my HP computer “companions” I would choose HP HDX 18t Premium as my entertainment and home laptop (because of it’s large screen size, great designs and features) and for my travel laptop I would choose HP TouchSmart tx2z series because it’s quite compact, light and does everything a travel laptop needs. They’re both rather expensive but hey, it’s an “if” question!!

    @skuboi (for my tweet)

    I don’t have a blog… =[

    Thanks!

  105. awesome giveaway! my picks —

    The HP HDX 18t series notebook looks & sounds great !

    companion —-

    HP Mini 110 XP edition in Pink Chic 9 yep ,that would make sure my Dear Hubby wouldnt steal it from me … lol :)

  106. I would select the HP HCX 16t Premium Series Notebook and the HP Pavilion Elite e9110t series Desk Top.

  107. I would choose the HP Touchsmart tx22 Series laptop and pair it with the HP Touchsmart 1Q500 t series desktop computer. Sounds like the perfect pair to me.

  108. I suggest the HP TouchSmart tx2z as the travel notebook and the HP Pavilion Elite e9180t computer for at home. The Hp touchsmart tx2z is an awesome computer, and the touchscreen would be great for note taking. And man, the power of the elite 9190t, I could render videos all day long with that. And probably play games at the same time too.
    To bad ill never be able to afford that, oh well, I guess i can dream.

  109. Hi

    I just think we need two mini HP units, we both do work on the go, that is my husband and myself and it all intenet related. A small agile device is where it’s at.

    Thanks

    Marilyn

  110. For my dream choices I would get an HP TouchSmart tx2z for a laptop, because it has a pivoting screen, for taking to the coffee shop. I always like to have a desktop too, so I’d choose the HP TouchSmart IQ800t with the largest monitor screen I could get!

  111. With this super giveaway I hope my little comment doesn’t get lost. We don’t have a laptop just a shared stand alone PC. We like the HP Mini 110XP & the HP Touch Smart IQ500t. Thanks for a super opportunity! senekers@comcast.net

  112. I think I would combine the HP TouchSmart tx2z series- because I like the look and screen size and the configurations on this one-with the mini 110 offered which would be great for taking my work everywhere I go.

  113. I would love to have HP HDX 18t premium series notebook & the HP Mini 110 xp edition series. Power & Portable. :)

  114. Need a computer to go and that would be the
    HP Mini 110 Netbook (Intel Atom 270, 1GB RAM, 10.1? display (1024 x 576 pixels), 160GB SATA HDD, 6 cell battery.

    Light and portable, powerful enough and practical.

  115. 1) I would have to pick:
    HP HDX 18t Premium series (laptop) b/c it has everything I need in the performance and entertainment sections. I need a laptop that can go the distance and with the HD screen/Blu-Ray player even my husband would be happy.
    HP TouchSmart IQ800t series (desktop) b/c it is slim and eye-catching. I am all about looks when it comes to a desktop and this has it. Everything is in the monitor which would free up a lot of desk space, which is what I need when working on school work and having lots of room when I have to bring things home from the office to work on.

  116. Entry 1:

    HP offers so many really state of the art desktop computers and laptops I can honestly say I would be thrilled with any one or two of them! Since our children are at the age where they are wanting to use the computers I find that HP offers such a wonderful selection for people of all ages and skill levels. After browsing around the HP sites and reading the features and specs of the computers here are my choices:

    1. The HP TouchSmart IQ800t – This is the creme de la creme of a desktop computer that the entire family can benefit from using and can serve a multitude of purposes for our children as well as my husband and I. It offers all the features and bells and whistles that we could possibly wish for and dream of!

    2. Oooh, the TouchSmart tx2z Ultra-Portable is just genius! This truly is a dream machine and the most efficient and versatile laptop I have seen to date. It offers so many unique features that are the latest and greatest in innovation and I would love, love to own this.

    I want to thank you so much for the wonderful chance to enter.

  117. I would go with the Mini 110XP for its larger hard drive and for the TouchSmart IQ800t for its multi-functional capabilities and large screen size when used as a TV monitor

  118. I would choose the HP TouchSmart IQ800t and also the HP Mini 110 xp edition series. These are just amazing.
