Starting today, September 23, 2008, HP is giving away 15 laptops through 15 websites and Cooking For Engineers is one of them! You can actually participate in all fifteen giveaways to maximize your chances of getting a laptop. Cooking For Engineers will be giving away an HP Pavilion dv4t, dv5t, or dv7t notebook computer on October 11, 2008.



We'll be announcing the specifics to our contest on October 4, 2008, so bookmark this article and check back when the contest begins. (Hint: It'll involve taking pictures, so go get a digital camera if you don't have one already.)

Starting on September 26, the first site will have one week to determine the winner of their giveaway computer. Every two days, another contest will begin on the next site in the giveaway. This gives you a decent amount of time to get the word out to your friends and to participate in as many giveaways as you can. Each site will be running a different contest (details will be announced on the day the contest begins for that site).

Here's the schedule of the other participants in "The HP Freshman 15" giveaway (go to their sites to find out how to participate in their giveaways):

Here are the three possible systems we'll be giving away:
HP Pavilion dv4t (click for details)
HP Pavilion dv5t (click for details)
HP Pavilion dv7t (click for details)

Based on the giveaway title, is this limited college freshmen? I couldn't find any rules indicating one way or the other.

I'm not allowed to post rules until the day of my giveaway, but it's not limited to college freshmen - HP just intends the laptop promotion to be oriented towards recent college grads and there are 15 units to be given away, so Freshman 15 seemed like a fun name.

So, to be clear, anyone regardless of age or country of residence will be able to participate in my giveaway. Full rules will be published on October 4th.

One more thing.
Can a person have more than one entry? I have a couple of great ideas and was having difficulty deciding which one to go for.

I just removed the floor from my moms kitchen, so I decided to cut some of it out, then decided that would take way too long, so I just burned the rest, with sparklers and a blowtorch.

Nice, I was a bit surprised at first (looked at the picture before reading the whole comment) then I realized it was a kitchen floor and it had been removed (thank goodness)!

Here is my entry into the competition. Click here for a larger view. I have a posting on my friend's blog where I go into detail about each dish, and with more pictures. Visit here for the juicy details.

I got to say, out of all the HP contests so far, this has been the most enjoyable one.

Richard.

It's not as elaborate as everyone elses, but with the minimal funds I have available, I did the best I could!

My entry (if it's allowed - I hope it's allowed!) is of a dinner I made for my wife and I. We're stationed in South Korea living off of the installation. Because of that, we don't have an oven or anything so I made do with what we have and made a pretty tasty dish.

It's Toasted Turkey and Cheese Sandwiches served with a side dish of Cream Soup with Mandarin juice.



I'd love to have made a more elaborate dish, but it was kind of impossible at the moment. It was something I made myself though. Big smile I hope this qualifies!
