Sony Vaio Laptop and Microsoft Office {giveaway}

sony laptop with tastespotting

The entry period for this giveaway is now closed, but check out this section for open Giveaways!

It’s summer!

You should be outside, sitting in a lounge chair on a shaded patio with your feet up, sipping on a cold cocktail and doing absolutely nothing

But we know you. You’re a workaholic. Or a blogaholic. Or a surfaholic (the web kind, not the wave kind).

So we understand that it’s not all that easy to just “be outside.” Sure your iDroidberry is good enough for a quick 140-character update or posting photos to facestagram, but when you have to send a 4-page email to your boss, or compose that brilliant return-to-blogging blog post (*ahem*), or just cruise through TasteSpotting in all its full-size glory while you’re eating some fish tacos by the pool…

You need a laptop to take it to go.

So thanks to our friends at Microsoft Windows we’re giving away a summery silver Sony Vaio ‘Y’ series laptop, which comes loaded with Microsoft Office Professional 2010, to our favorite (totally randomly chosen) TasteSpotting community member!!

And hey, even if you already have one or don’t need one, surely you know someone who would love a laptop for a birthday, graduation, or Father’s Day.

How to Enter this Laptop Giveaway:

Please make sure you follow the directions!

  1. Pin, or post to facebook, or tweet this giveaway post and please say something along the lines of “Laptop giveaway from @TasteSpotting and @Office. Enter here: http://is.gd/TasteSpottingLaptopGiveaway #TasteSpottingToGo” (don’t worry, we set up the link for you. http://is.gd/TasteSpottingLaptopGiveaway links to this post.)
  2. Come back here to this post and comment:
  • with a link to your pin, facebook status, or tweet (so we know you did it) and
  • tell us what you’re going to do with your new laptop if you get it!

That’s it! You have until next Friday June 8 to enter.

(This giveaway is only open to US residents, sorry non-US friends! We’ll work on the next one for you!)

If you have questions, drop us a line at contact@tastespotting.com

If I had a new laptop? I would enter into grad school this fall with a confidence and drive which is currently faltering right now as I am completing my undergrad. Symbolically, my 2008 black macbook I bought Fresgman year is dying, so I am ready for Tastespotting to provide me with the most valuable school supply! Also I’m a huge fan!!! I tell everyone abt ur amazing “food porn” website. Keep up the goodwork and please consider this poor college student foodie :D

Hi! I currently have a Dell laptop that enjoys lighting itself on fire. I’ve had to replace the battery twice and the power cord three times! I’d love to have a new laptop that doesn’t smoke and overheat for no apparent reason. I also LOVE Tastespotting, I’ve discovered so many amazing bloggers and tasty recipes!
Plus, as an expectant first-time mom, I’d love to be able to share pictures and videos of the baby with friends and family!

My current laptop doesn’t support a lot of programs so it’d be very useful to have this one. I’d use this laptop for work on the food magazine I’m starting at my college in the fall! And work on my photo editing and design skills, and of course my food blog :). In addition to the usual laptop pursuits like watching movies and shows online ^^;

I don’t have an I Pad, an I Pod or anything quick that I can take with me. I do have a old time sit on desk computer. When I’m in the kitchen, I have to print out recipes from online and it would save on time and paper, to have a laptop. Also, when visiting my daughter in Missouri, I can just bring my laptop so I don’t have to ask to use her computer to do work.

I need a new laptop to save myself and my family (and my dog) from the wretched “wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeee” sound my current laptop makes. Plus, this laptop has helped us return from the red zone grad school put us in, and makes sure we pay our bills on time and heck, we’ve even kept track enough that we’re *ahead* on payments (much thanks to Microsoft Word, Excel and OneNote, btw). I’m afraid that once this thing croaks – which it is currently *not* workable without being plugged in, and has given me not only the blue screen of death, but a grey screen, gold screen, red screen, and green screen (yeah, I have no idea…) – we’ll surely miss a payment of two and *definitely* not be able to afford a new laptop until…tax returns? idk.

So…yeah…I’d use the laptop to keep us on track. :-)

I pinned this to my “Wishlist Board”. I seriously need a new laptop and would love to add Lightroom to my programs but I am out of room on my old clunker so I need to win this :) http://pinterest.com/pin/249598004318601063/

If I won this laptop I would use it for:
1. Celebrating that I own a laptop and can now take my work to cafes!
2. Recipe testing without having to print all those pages!
3. Basically anything food-related, but mostly keeping the inspiration alive for my cooking classes and brand new Etsy bakeshop!

Wheee! Thanks! :)

I haven’t had a laptop in years and have often thought how convenient it’d be to have one again! I could surf Tastespotting in bed, set it up in the kitchen to watch “how to” videos on cooking techniques and read recipes off a full screen instead of constantly scrolling back and forth on my blackberry. Fingers crossed!

I would absolutely love this laptop to use for college! My current laptop is quite old and slowly dying off so this would be an absolute great money-saver.

With this Lap Top I would provide my chilren with endless amounts of entertainment (my 2 year old daughter always announces that she loves the “peter” everytime someone has a laptop around, her mispronouncation is both hilarious and disturbing). I would also use the lap top as a means to continue my education. I dream of one day growing into a position of leadership within the organization i currently work. I also would blog, browse pinterest endlessly and update my facebook status every 2 hours. When my kids arent playing games on it. =)
