Knew I'd get your attention with that title.
This post is an exercise in personal transparency...transparency in the hopes that if you know I have three of these Dell XPS M1710 powerhouses to award as prizes, you'll bombard me with e-mail until I get off my butt and launch the contest they relate to! A contest, you say!? Yep...you heard me right. Only the hax0r with l337 skillz need apply. I'll share more details when I launch the thing, but in the meantime, it's worth spending some time learning XAML. I've probably said too much already. 🙂
To whet your insatiable geek appetite, here are some of the machine specs:
- Dell XPS M1710 with Intel 2GHz Dual Core processor
- 17-inch UltraSharp widescreen WUXGA display (that's 1920 x 1200, if you're counting...perfect for some cool wallpaper)
- 512MB...wow, I need to say that again...512MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX! Ouch!
- 80GB 7200RPM SATA hard drive (had to watch the budget somewhere)
- Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005
- Built-in 10/100/1000 network card and 802.11a/g wireless
- 8X DVD+/-RW drive
- Ready, willing, and oh-so able for Windows Vista
Anyway, keep me honest. Send me e-mail. Subscribe to my RSS feed so you'll hear the contest announcement when it happens. Expect something in the next couple of weeks. There...I've committed. There's no turning back now. 🙂
Oh...and who wouldn't want to do this with their brand spanking new XPS machine!?
