  3. Ifilled out the survey. I’m very interested in the potential of using this computer in an educational environment.

  4. The power of systems like this for the price is phenomenal, when I think of how much I’ve spent for so much less.

  5. Survey is complete! Will be waiting for the All-in-One 😉 The Gadgeteer is a favorite. Always dependable reviews and comments. (Survey real name: BJ Swanson)

    I completed the survey. I believe that this survey and results improving Gadgeteer site. So this is important for us. The Survey questions are good choise. I’m learning new thinks and I read your commments. Its funny and improving experience for me…

    With love

  9. I don’t retweet really good contests! What is wrong with you people! Keep it quiet!!! ;<)))!! Where's the coffee?

  10. Yeah, I never win anything even with 99+% odds, so I’m thinking this is not gonna happen. Oh well, I like to drive traffic to good sites, so at least it’s for a good cause.

  11. Finished the survey. I appreciate you asking for feedback and now have to start reading some more. So many great sites that it’s easy to forget about some or miss some.

  12. I found your site through geardiary via this giveaway. Filled out your questionnaire honestly; you’re a new site for me but I like what I see. Thanks!

  13. Love your reviews, especially like the way they’re structured, and the detail. Have trusted you for many years. Thanks.

  14. Ok! Come on LENOVO!

    …Seriously, my computer is dying on me… I’m using my brother’s laptop to fill this out. I’m desperate here…

  15. My wife introduced me to this site and now I visit it more than she does. Good information in a readable style. Something new each time I visit.

  16. I wanted to comment on the recent improvement and recommendations by vendors to look closely at the LENOVO products, especially notebooks and netbooks. I know they have been around for quite a long time, but it seems they have been running a close race with the other big names (like ACER, Hewlett-Packard, DELL, ASUS, and many other brands I see advertized.

    THE GADGETEER is very informative, fun, and I enjoy the professionalism it appears to convey. I would love to win this model A70z, All-in-one desktop. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

  17. Great review of product. Lenovo products are improving and they are very competitively priced. The contest is a great idea!

  18. I’ve never won any computer before. What if that is my real chance? Survey was a little strange 🙂 And funy


    I have entered.Thanks for the opportunity and for the great quick and easy review site. One of my daily reads and one of my favorites.

  20. As a first time visitor to the site, I would have loved if the survey had links to some of the items you were asking us to rate (like a video review) so that I could have provided more constructive feedback. Thanks for doing the contest…fingers crossed!!

  21. Steven Yagozinski

    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.


    I want this computer for my children and so I can do online classes from home! thanks Gadgeteer!
