We’re Giving Away an Acer Aspire One Netbook!!

We’re Giving Away an Acer Aspire One Netbook!!

By David Ponce

That’s right guys! With the help of Staples, we’re spreading the Holiday cheers by giving one lucky OhGizmo! reader an Acer Aspire One Netbook, a value of $349.98. Since this is sponsored by Staples, below is a little bit of info on a promotion they’ve got going.

Staples wants to make this Holiday shopping season EASY by giving 10,000 customers a chance to win their holiday gifts for free through our Gift It For Free sweepstakes. From November 16, 2008 to December 24, 2008, 10,000 lucky Staples customers will win their entire purchase (up to $5,000) for FREE! Great news, right? Well, not everyone thinks so, but we do! To prove how easy winning can be, Staples wants to make one lucky OhGizmo! reader a winner, with an Acer Aspire One Netbook (a $349.98 value!)

The Netbook itself has gotten rave reviews all around, and has the following specs:

    Intel® Atom™ Processor N270 (1.60GHz, 533MHz FSB, 512KB L2 cache)
    1GB installed memory
    120GB hard drive
    8.9″ WSVGA Acer CrystalBrite™ TFT LCD (1024 x 600)
    Multi-in-1 Digital Media Card Reader
    Acer InviLink™ 802.11b/g Wi-Fi CERTIFIED®
    Acer Crystal Eye Webcam
    # Microsoft Windows XP® Home

So… Here’s the (not so) fineprint:

How to win? We’re not going to make you jump through hoops. Leave a comment on this post and we’ll pick a winner at random. If you spam us with multiple entries, we’ll block you.

Who can enter? We’re sad to say this one is US only.

When does it end?: Comments will close on Sunday December 21st, 2008 at midnight EST, and the winner announced on Monday.

Happy Holidays folks!

  34. Derek Benner says:

    Okay, I'd *LOVE* an Acer Aspire One. I'm in somewhat of a bind (who isn't right now?) and I can barely afford the monthly internet access fees and other living expenses, so if I win this I'll treasure it greatly!

  164. Scott says:

    I really need this laptop. I have been looking for laptops for the past year or so on craigslist in the $200 to $300 range but I have unfortunately not been able to afford one and I don’t think I will be able to any time soon. I have 2 kids (1 being a baby) and my wife doesn’t work, so we are just barely making it by. The current laptop I have is a Pentium 100 (seriously) and I just need something with a decent processor so I can work on my music on the go when I get a few minutes at work, or in the living room while I am watching the kids. If you choose me, I guarantee I will appreciate this laptop more than anyone else could.
