  1. Personally I think it’s *really* poor form to open a prize giveaway.

    You want to keep it nice and pristine for the winner? Easy, leave it un-opened.

    It ain’t yours!

  2. @nick HP are happy to for bloggers to review it, that is the point of it. They have been very open with us to do that.
    I would be happy to get a free laptop and software even if the box had been opened

  3. I most certainly agree with Ian on this one. These hard working folks are blogging for our sake, so I’d be most willing to give them this great opportunity to try out the best of the technical world. After all, they’re not getting to keep it, so this is the least we could do.

    Give the guy some slack, will ya? 🙂

  4. @Michell thanks, and my reason for wanting to look at it is that it makes a great Media Center machine and I should at least review it

  5. Definitely 🙂 I would personally have no problems with receiving a “used prize”, if I were to win anything of this kind. Surely, nobody in their right mind would turn down a $5,000+ prize, simply because the giver (well, partly :-)) has used it for a few days.

    It’s a great competition, and you’ve got a great site here, Ian, which I am happy that I’ve found after seeing the competition. It has opened up an entirely new world for me in terms of new blogs to keep an eye out for 🙂
