I’m going to keep this short and sweet since I have already written a bit about Ultrabooks and I’m going to be talking about them more in the coming weeks. So let’s cut to the chase…Jeff Sass (who is a partner in crime on the Cast of Dads podcast as well as a fellow Intel Advisor) and I have been testing out a new line of Windows laptop, specifically, Ultrabooks.
Well, the time has come to announce a QUICK but GREAT giveaway, courtesy of Intel, who are the thought leaders behind the Ultrabook concept. There is now a page that lists out the Official Rules which I encourage you to read. Here are the critical details on the giveaway though:
- Begins December 21, 2011 at 12:00:01 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time (“PST”)
- Ends December 23, 2011 at 11:59:59 p.m U.S. Pacific Time (“PST”)
- U.S. Residents Only
- 18 years and older
- Must have a non-private Twitter account
- You must send a Tweet with the hashtag (#) – “#UltrabookDads”
- Read the rest of the Official Rules
To make it a little more interesting, I ask that you tweet not only the hashtag listed above, but also say WHY you think Ultrabooks are so GREAT!
If you don’t have any idea as to why Ultrabooks are such a compelling new technology offering, Jeff and I have set up a few informational digital get-togethers to answer any questions that you may have about Ultrabooks and specifically about the Ultrabook that we are giving away – the ASUS Zenbook UX31E. All of the pictures that you see in this post, as well as in my previous post about Ultrabooks are of the ASUS Zenbook that is being given away (and don’t worry, it’s a new one – not the one that Jeff or I have been testing out).
To learn more about Ultrabooks or ask questions about the ASUS Zenbook, Jeff and I will be doing both a Google Hangout and a Twitter Chat. Of course, you can always ask us directly on Twitter: @sass or @hightechdad . Here is the schedule for the Hangout and Twitter Chat:
Google Hangout: Thursday, December 22 at 10pm EST / 7pm PST
Twitter Chat: Friday December 23 at 10pm EST / 7pm PST
We will announce how to access the Google Hangout shortly, so monitor Jeff and my Twitter feeds. The ASUS Zenbook UX31E currently retails on Amazon for $1099. These are very hot items and may not stay in stock so we will help one lucky winner out!

HTD says: Anyway, I had promised to keep this short. Start tweeting about Ultrabooks using the #UltrabookDads hashtags so that you are entered in the giveaway.
Incredible Beauty The ZENBOOK uses a precision-crafted design measuring only 3mm at the front and 9mm at the rear. The form features razor thin edges and a curved center section, which is both practical and attractive - while accommodating the powerful computing components within, this design also looks totally unique. It embodies beauty and strength in complete balance and harmony. Incredible Speed ASUS is proud to deliver the world's first ultrabook with SATA 6Gb/s solid state storage, making for an amazingly smooth and fast computing experience. Additionally, all ASUS ZENBOOK models ship with USB 3.0 as standard, multiplying the transfer rates of current USB 2.0 by as much as a factor of ten! Combined, SSD storage and USB 3.0 create incredible speed of data transfer rates.
