Sony Vaio Laptop and Microsoft Office {giveaway}

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.
