We've got a beast of a laptop to give away for free as part of our Reg Hardware competition. If you're looking for something that packs a punch and half, this should be just the fillip.

No.

If you've got a UK address, you're golden. Your problem is that you're entering a compo with thousands of other people for one prize. The same reason you've never won the lottery either.

Re: Intrigued

Was that you in the car park the other day in car number 9?

Selling 'Samsung laptops' that turned out to be potatoes in laptop bags?

No not me M`Lud, If anyone says it was, they can expect a visit from Doug and Dinsdale (Pirahna) who will nail their heads to the floor...

Lottery tickets

Everyone buys what they think is the winning ticket.

The trick is to buy what you think is the losing ticket.

I'm not a UK resident but I'm entering anyway. Screw the Terms and Conditions

Since you obviously accept posts and advertising from people worldwide, your contest must be open to all as well.

I'll be glad to pay any shipping/customs costs.

A 17" laptop with a 900 pixel display is a paper weight.

Aha! The first to fall foul of dogged's eminently sensible rule for disqualification.

Done...

I already have the previous build of the 711, but I entered anyway; this really is a beast of a lappy, makes my work desk-top machine feel like a Complete Steamer!

why would I need a computer if I cannot change the refresh rate to more than 60 Hz and the video connector cannot be secured...?

WTF?

I dunno. Why would I need a horse, if I couldn't fit it with three extra legs and teach it the cha-cha-cha?

Well, fcukity, fcuk, fcuk.

Confined to UK again. Last time I wona prize here as a non-UK resident was when I won a Duron 12 years ago.

Looks like I'm losing again.

Bollix.

Beast, really?

It's got a 2 GHz current gen i-7, so nothing special there, 6 GiB of DDR3 is admittedly a lot of RAM (though probably not that useful, in truth) and 900 pixels for the height is indeed FAIL on the screen (that's why people keep saying so) of a "17 inch" format laptop. Even the graphics is pretty mediocre, really, for the term 'beast'. Not to be a git about this but I'm typing from an M18X with 2x HD 6990M in Crossfire and a considerably faster i-7 and I'm still not close to the 'maxed' builds possible for the line. These machines and their competitors are "Beasts of a laptop" not this nice executive toy.

Needless to say, I entered anyway :-P
