Win a Lenovo A70z All-in-One Desktop PC!


Starting today, 21 web sites will be giving away a brand new Lenovo A70z all in one PC exactly like the one I reviewed here a few weeks ago. The Gadgeteer is lucky enough to be the first site to start our contest! The other sites will have their own type of contest and start dates, so you’ll want to check out each one on the opening day of their contest to see what you have to do to enter. Details on our contest and a list of the other participating sites after the jump.

CONTEST CLOSED – the WINNER is entry #158 – Dennis. Dennis has 48hrs to respond to my email, or I’ll choose another winner.

Update 7/5/10 – Dennis failed to respond to my email after more than 48hrs, so I’ve chosen #32 – BJ Swanson as the winner, and he has already claimed his prize.

    Would love to have this one, maybe I could let my college daughter have it and get my pc back or visa versa. (I found it pretty comical that you were interested in the reuseable bag I visalized you opening the box, grapping the bag and throwing the computer aside.)
    I left the comment in the wrong place yesterday, I put it under the review instead of here. Sorry for the doubles.
