Competition now closed!
The very nice folks at Lenovo have just released some new ideapads into the Australian wild and I’ve managed to track down two of them!
I’m using one of them, the IdeaPad Y560, to write this very post and run some other tests on it; a sort of product test, if you will, which I will duly report back on.
But the other one deserves to find a good home somewhere here in Australia. Is your home a loving home? Could you find it in your heart to love a Lenovo? I know from just two days of testing I could!
They are fun-loving laptops – full of creative ideas, they make plenty of noise and do so with full-on colour and crisp realism.
They look sharp and even have cool features like ‘Face Scan’ security. How this works is that, first time around, it scans your face and registers it with ASIO (I could be making that bit up), then next time you restart your ideapad it uses the inbuilt camera to scan your face and, once recognised, you can ‘access all areas’. Yes, it has an easy work-around if you happen to have had a glass or two too many of the Adelaide Hills finest wines; your entry is password-protected (you set the password) and you get in that boring old way.
Here’s the spec on the freedom-loving, fun-loving ideapad that I have here at BetterComms Towers – remember, this baby can be yours!
|CPU||Intel ARD 2.26G|
|OS||Windows 7 Home Premium|

How to enter
So no doubt the question on your lips is, “Lee – how do I give a wild child, freedom-loving, fun-loving Lenovo IdeaPad Y560 a good home; mine, preferably?”
The answer is disarmingly simple:
Tell me, in 25 words or less, why you deserve to have one.
Leave your entry in the comments to this post, and you can also enter as many times as you like.
Additionally, you can leave comments about other people’s entries, too! So if you really like someone’s entry, or really dislike it, you can tell me/them/the world. Total transparency is a beautiful thing
UPDATE: Runner up prize
I’ve been given an Altec Lansing Octiv mini speaker/charger box for your iPhone and iPod to review. I love it so much I’m keeping my review copy instead of sending it back I’m forcing Altec Lansing to give me another so I can add it as an additional prize in this competition. Watch my video to find out why I am so in love with the Octiv (hint: the sound is brilliant). The runner up in the competition gets the Octiv.
