(Ended) My Desperate Plea for an HP mini 110 (leave a comment for your shot to win too)



To many eyes the video above was just the lovely Dara Torres talking about the HP mini. But this mom of four, wife, homeschooler, blogger saw more. Look again. Look beyond. Dara at the pool, Dara at the gym. That's multi-tasking and let me add with class.

This little pretty comes loaded with Windows 7 and all that it has to offer. And as if that weren't plenty, the computer itself weighs in at just 3.22 lbs and has a full-size keyboard and an 11.6” HD screen.

Obviously I can't carry around our desktop, and while I do have an ipod touch, it's way to small for blogging. This HP would be perfect for me. A perfect fit for my very involved lifestyle. Something dependable with lovely extras that would allow me to easily do what comes almost as a second nature that's suitable for at home and on the go use.

Now for any of you who have followed my blog for about the past 6 months, you've no doubt seen my desperation for a new laptop. Post after post for contest after contest. Complaints about my laptop that I currently have. I mean, right now, I am using someone else's computer because I am still out of town. I could have brought my own, but the operating system on it is acting wacky, sometimes working, other times not. What good is it if it's not dependable, right? Almost useless.

So here, i'll stop just short of begging and give you more info on how you can get a chance to win one for yourself. All you need to do is simply leave a comment on this blog post. 3 will be given away to random commentors on participating blogs.

*Just added in a last ditch effort....S-Sang for it


*By way of disclosure I was not compensated in any way for this post. It is, again, my desperate attempt at winning one and was prompted by this post over at MomBloggersClub.

  3. I would love to win too. It would be perfect for on-the-go computing. I would also be able to easily take it around the house and out to the back yard.

    I don't believe comments on your own post count.

  5. I have to do a lot of traveling and I use a friend's extra laptop while I'm on the road. It would be great if I didn't have to use his and didn't have to carry such a big thing through airport security!

  6. Would love to see us both win an HP Mini. Been nice to take with me on the go and catch up letters to family and the kids teachers.

  7. Something this small would be really convenient for me since I need a computer for work and it is light enough to take on the bus which I use to commute every day. I could check e-mails & bills on my commute. My old laptop was actually stolen recently so I would love a new one! Good luck!

  9. This would help so much. All we have is a desktop. This way I could use the mini anytime I wanted and the kids could use the desktop.

  14. Man my life could use some simplifying! I would love to be able to write my blog posts on the go or during lunch breaks. Now if the HP Mini 110 could help me get my daughter to sleep through the night, I would be in LOVE (even more!)

  25. I am in the process of trying to start my own business and I currently work from home...but I rarely stay in one place with my laptop. As I suffer from degenerative disc disease in my cervical spine - coupled with a heavy laptop - changing my "workspace" throughout the day is NOT an easy task.

    The HP Mini would simplify my life by allowing me to move my computer from place to place on my own...no more bothering the rest of the family! This netbook would be a true lifesaver!

    Thanks so much!
