November Contest #1: AOpen 1558J Notebook Chassis

Post by Apoptosis » Sat Oct 01, 2005 4:56 pm

I think we have really lost our minds, but we are giving away a brand new AOpen 1558 Notebook Chassis to one lucky forum member who wants to build their own notebook. I personally own one of these notebooks and use it when I travel as it has 4.5 hours of battery life when using the Centrino Hardware Control Utility and undervolting my Intel 770 Processor.

The Winner Will Get:

One AOpen 1558J Notebook Chassis
- Current Value: $500
- Product Link: My AOpen

One AOpen Combo Drive 24x8x8x24
- Current Value: $80

Total Prize Value: $580

Due to shipping costs this contest will be limited to our forum members in the United States. The winner will have to purchase a processor, memory, hard drive, and a wifi card to be able to use the notebook. The winner of the notebook is also required to post photos of the notebook once it is built or Legit Reviews will never do a contest like this again. The winner of this notebook will love it!

The requirements of this contest is that one must be an active member of the forums to enter (Free Registration) and have 15 posts during the month of October. Please not that 15 forum posts in one day and no other posts for the rest of the month does not make you an active member. The contest ends on October 31st, but due to Halloween the winner will be named on November 1st. Simply reply to this post if you'd like to be entered.

I hope this months contests of the Pentium M processor and AOpen notebook chassis show our members that we are striving to bring in new members and are trying to give back to our growing community. Most sites just sell their extra hardware and review samples, but why do that when we can give it to you guys/gals.

Cheers :drinkers:

I've shipped stuff to new york to be picked up by people from Canada before.. the paperwork for hardware going international is no fun at times. You are in the contest so no worries.

no, he said to be OK picking up stuff in new york where my family lives.
also it's not just the money issue but also complicated paperwork if I got it right.
