And the winner of the HP HDX Dragon is…

Drum roll please….

After much consideration, I’ve finally decided that the winner of the super fantastic HP HDX Dragon laptop system is:

From Ryan ‘shipwreck’ Shupe:

The reason why I picked Ryan’s entry is because he was creative and unique. He used what he had available to him and he came up with a fun slogan. Congrats Ryan!!!

I hope everyone that entered had fun even if they didn’t get chosen. I also hope that those of you that didn’t enter also had a good time looking at all the entries. I know I sure did!

Many thanks to all of you and mega thanks to HP and Buzzcorps who came up with this idea and picked The Gadgeteer to participate!

    Grats to you. I totally called that too. ^^

    I figured I wouldn’t win but it was fun anyways. Hope you enjoy your computer (Which I’m positive you will) and I am super envious now.

    I really love your picture with the Tshirts. I’m actually thinking about making a photo montage video of all the entries. :o)

    Nice job, Ryan. What a cool idea to promote the site (and not a bad promo for your school either, with that nice scenery in the background 🙂 MegaCongrats!!

    Hey all right, i didn’t know there was a postable forum for this thing. Thanks guys! It just affirms my belief that ‘disabilities’ are often gifts in disguise for the type of audience they garner (plus, with the right attitude, nothing is impossible- go Oscar!). Cheers to John, Steve, and Maciej, i was sweating bullets waiting for the outcome since yours were great!
