I won two netbooks- do you need one? UN-SPONSORED GIVEAWAY

acer2

I won a mini laptop a couple years ago at a time I really needed one. My PC was on its deathbed and I didn't own any kind of laptop. So I entered to win an HP mini and won and that was awesome. It's what I'm typing on right now! I am so thankful for this prize.

And this past weekend I won two Acer Aspire One Netbooks via a Windows giveaway. TWO!

Technically my HP mini is not living up to its full potential with a few issues, but it still works for now. I am really hoping to save up for a full-size laptop. In the meantime, my mom doesn't have a laptop and has to share her computer with my dad who keeps quite busy with his inspiring and funny email FWDs and youtube watching.

I wanted to give her one of the netbooks. And then, I am thinking, I really want to give the other one to someone else that could really use it, just like I was in need a couple years ago.

And this brings me to the giveaway: if you need a brand new, never-opened Aspire One Netbook (the opened one in the photos with Ivy is the one I'm giving to my mom), or know someone that needs one and want to give it to them, or maybe you want to give it to your Mom for Mother's Day or if you just want one for yourself or are going to sell it if you win (how am I to know anyway?) leave one comment* on this post to enter.

Subscribe to my blog, follow me on twitter, and like this post at the bottom down there. None of these things will help your chances of winning, but it's just nice if you're into that sort of thing.

*Entry guidelines: when filling out the comment form please include your email address or blog address so I have a way to contact you. Or leave something in the body of your comment like your twitter handle or what-not.

Open to U.S. winners only since I'm going to be mailing this all by myself.

This giveaway is not sponsored. I won both of the netbooks and want to give one away to a fabulous reader, hopefully someone that can really use it!

Comments on this post will close 4/26 sometime after 11:59 PM (CST). I'll choose one comment at random and contact the winner/announce on Wednesday 4/27.

  2. What an awesome giveaway! If I win...it will be a mother's day present. :)

  3. Good luck to me! My lap top is about 6 years old! Ancient in computer terms.

  4. Mine isn't an entry either. I just wanted to say that you are such a generous person. You could sell it yourself as you save up but you choose to bless someone else.
    May blessings come back to you and your family one hundred-fold!

  5. I feel a little guilty for doing this, we have plenty, a roof over our heads, food on the table, lots of love to go around so if there is someone else that needs this more than us, obviously, pick them!

    My boyfriend is moving halfway across the world for me, and it is big and huge and it makes my heart dance and do crazy things. He's sold his house, cashed out his savings, quit his job, and it's enough for him to live comfortably but it's also a big sacrifice from what he knows.

    He's looking for a netbook, and this, would be so perfect. He won't let me just buy him one, so if I win this, it's guilt-free, win-win, no payback needed.

    :)

  6. another non-entry. I almost entered because my old laptop is basically trash, but I'm sitting here typing on a perfectly wonderful desktop. I hope this can bless someone who really needs it! I'm very inspired by your generosity.

  7. How kind of you! I would love to give my mom this notebook if I won. I'd even gladly pay the shipping. We just welcomed our first baby, Greta, into our family on Feb 17th. I am back at work now and my mom is watching her everyday. I would love for her to have a laptop to take back and forth and use when baby is napping. She would be over the moon with her own notebook. She's the most gracious, selfless, amazing woman I know. Aren't moms the best?! :)

  8. This is beyond a generous giveaway. My husband and I were just talking about replacing our desktop (which I'm typing from now) - its five years old and starting to give us problems. Our verdict was to wait until it officially "dies". So I'm crossing my fingers and would totally be willing to pay for shipping too.

  11. Oh Steph I so need this! My desktop computer is dying and since we co-sleep baby girl insists I go to bed with her at 7, making getting anything done impossible and I would love to have something to take to Relevant.

    Also, I love how easy you made the entry, you are simply the best :-)

  13. I was so excited for you when I saw that you won, and when I saw it was two I just knew that somehow or other you'd give one of them away. :) But you're giving BOTH of them away! You are too, too generous. My netbook just died unexpectedly, I'm hoping they can still get my files off of it. :(

    ReplyDelete
  14. I would LOVE to give this to my mom so that she can see pictures of the kids. She doesn't have a computer and I'd love to be able to give this to her for mothers day!!! She would love to be able to keep up with us via internet time.

  15. You are so very sweet. Tommy broke my laptop months ago, so that when I try to plug it in, it SPARKS. I've been making do on my phone, but I miss Pinterest!

  16. Our old PC has struggled along - and been taken over by my 6 year old! A netbook would be a wonderful tool to get Mommy's work done!

  17. This is so great, I would love to win this. I have a dell insiron and after having it worked on 5 times and putting more money into it then its worth, its breaking down again. I so can't afford a new one.

    I would keep this for myself

  18. Such a precious gift for someone.

    Thank you.

    Our laptop is TRULY in & out, alive somedays, others not, if I were to win, this would be a gift to my sweet husband, graduating from graduate school in a few short weeks.

  19. Steph, you rock. ;) We could really use this at our house. My very old laptop is on its last legs. I've already replaced the hard drive once, we had to wipe everything again a few months ago, and I just moved everything to backup again last night. I fear it is not long for this world. Winning your overflow would be very lucky indeed! :)

    Hugs to you all.

  20. That is so nice of you. If I won, I'd be donating it to the animal shelter I volunteer at - so they could use it at events for credit card processing or onsite online registration collection.

  21. You are one awesome mama! I have never had a laptop. Nope. When I had Piper almost 6 years ago we bought our iMac and it is what I still use today. I am not sure what I would do with all that freedom of being able to walk into a different room and still have a computer :)
    Thanks Steph!

  22. You are very, very kind! I would love to win ... I guess i would not say that it is a necessity because i believe our electronics are a luxury but I would use it for my oldest daughters. I homeschool my 6 children and we all share my old desk top ... my two oldest have been asking for something they could take to the library to work on. So this would be perfect.

    Thank you for being so kind!

  28. This is such an awesome giveaway. My netbook just broke. I don't know why. It won't stay on for more than 15 seconds though. I think my 2 year old daughter has something to do with it because my laptop is pink and she's super fascinated with anything pink right now. It's just really crappy because I have awesomely cute pictures of my daughter on there that I can't get off now. I also have all of my blogging stuff on there. Now I gotta share a computer with my husband again and he gets really picky when he's not signed into all of his stuff automatically anymore.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  31. Wow! Thank you for being so generous! This is a great give away. I already follow your blog (have for a while) but don't do twitter. :(

    Winning this would be great! Our home computer is a loaned one from my eldest daughter's school (online school) and she's gradutating in June so it will have to be returned then. Our family will be completely out of the computer zone then and buying another? well won't happen not enough of a priority for a family of 9. I'd love to win so I can continue my blogging and following those I love!

  34. So generous of you to give when you get!

    My daughter has type 1 diabetes and her insulin pump and glucose meter are only compatible with Windows. I spend so much extra time writing down her daily blood sugar readings so that I can look at trends and try to see areas where her care needs improved.

    If I had a netbook, I could literally plug in our medical devices and let them download. I could print out the tables to send to our endocrinologist.

    Diabetes is a very time consuming disease and this would be so helpful to cut down on some of the time it takes me to manage her care.

  35. I would love to win this for my daughter. She is a single mom with two sons (8months & 2yo). Dad is no where to be found :-( She is also helping to raise her sister's little boy (4yo) after she walked off and left him 2 years ago. Heather has made the decision to go back to school. She starts this fall and the last thing on her list of 'stuff I need for school' is a laptop. Lord knows I can't afford to buy one and it's taking every penny we can scrape up to get the other supplies she will need. Winning this would be an awesome gift for her and one she would definitely appreciate.

  36. My dad needs this so bad! He pretty much can never use the computer with my two sisters and their school work & social networking. He's been through a lot in the past year and would so appreciate this!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ok, I would love to enter this giveaway for one reason... I just got a new job (after my husband was laid off) and I now work for a photographer! I am incredibly thankful for this new job BUT the one issue we are having is that we have one computer for 6 people! Normally that is great and we are simple people but man oh man, when you are trying to edit photos and have a husband wanting to network and kids fighting over turns.. well, you know! Thanks for being so generous to one of us!

  41. that is so generous of you to do!

    i would actually use it for myself, it sounds selfish but my computer is on the brink of disaster and I am in my final years of school so it is much needed! it would be a mothers day gift for sure!

    I follow your blog!

  43. Stephanie - why am I not surprised you are doing this? You are absolutely one of the most generous people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

    I would love to win this because our laptop is on it's last leg. It has been dropped on the ceramic tile and had smoothie spilled on it and, oh yeah, is 7 years old. This would be super helpful over here.

    Love you babe.

  44. You are so generous!!!

    I would love to win and give the computer to my mama! I am fortunate to have a shiny, new laptop and my mama's computer is the worst. Its dying a very slow death!

    PS I love Ivy with those glasses. Way too cute

  45. My husband could definitely use this. Thank you so much for your generous heart!

  46. Seriously these are the cutest pictures! Love Ivy wearing the glasses!
    I would love it if I won this prize. My computer is super old and was a hand me down from an uncle. It works though and you won't find me complaining, it is better than nothing!

  47. wow Stephanie. something tells me you were one of those kids that gave away half her cookie in her lunch. this is fantastic that you are giving one away.

  48. Awesome! Our desktop is declining rapidly and my husband's laptop is not doing very well either. Not to mention he uses it all the time, so my time on the home computer is very limited.

She's also hearing impaired and trying to learn sign-language - she's overwhelmed and makes less than 20k/yr! It would be a perfect mother's day gift for her!

  52. How wonderful to see such generosity! And what luck you must have! Crazy!

    Anyway we have a wonderful desktop, but with homeschooling four kids one computer often isn't enough to go around. It would be wonderful to have laptop for the kids to research, read, or type with.

    thanks for the chance. our hard drive crashed recently & my hubby uses our other computer a ton.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Wow. Just wow. Your generosity is just inspiring.

    My husband lost his job almost 2 months ago. We'd been hoping for him to find a "better" job for almost 2 years, he got it, and then, well, the job was no longer there. We had big plans for all that extra income - new doors for the house, windows, and a trip to the zoo this summer. I'd even started a "rainy day" money envelope. But, now, we have gone back to living on one income. Don't get me wrong, we manage (though not very well at times) and are thankful for the roof over our heads, food in the fridge and each other.

    This lap top would be wonderful - it would make job hunting for the Hubs much easier (we currently have a dinosaur of a desktop that moves slower than molasses in January) and I'd like to get my baking business off the ground and start selling my goods at local businesses. It would just help. Maybe make things easier.

    We are no more deserving than anyone one else - but it would just be nice. And, in the back of my mind, I hope to someday have the same kind of opportunity and be able to pay it forward.

  56. My laptop {and only computer} must go in for repairs *again!* arghhh...I do have a little perspective and know it's not the worst problem to have. But I could use a new netbook to get me through. Many blessings!

  61. How sweet you are!! My laptop has finally given up its will to live and I'm not really in the position to buy a new one right now (and apparently trying to fix my old one is hopeless). A netbook would be a wonderful solution.

If I won I'd give it to the in-laws, they only get to see their grandkids 3-4 times per year & use an old desktop at the library to view pictures & keep in touch online. I'd even foot the internet bill. Thank you again, so generous!

    So happy for whoever wins. I feel like anyone who reads this blog on a regular basis must be someone I would like :)

  65. My laptop crashed on me right after we moved. Since then, I've had to 'share' the desktop computer with my husband. It's not that bad, really, but it would be nice to have a laptop in the house! Especially since we don't have cable, and could easily watch tv shows downstairs!!

  72. My HP mini was stolen 2 years ago while at Disney, so I'd love to be back in the mini game. My current laptop is too clunky to travel with and I've considered and lusted after an iPad just so I'd be able to work while traveling. Winning this would be a huge help!

    ReplyDelete
  73. You are an awesome lady! I've been coveting an iPad... mostly because my laptop is getting old and I use it for work and I'm trying to baby it along and if I could let it rest from the personal internet stuff I do I could probably make it last until later this year when I can afford to replace it. So a netbook would certainly work for what I need... If I win I'd gladly pay shipping, if someone else needs it more - let them win.

    You are a sweet and generous lady!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Wow. It's amazing that you won them and awesome that you are passing one on! Well...I happen to really need a laptop. I've been using my husbands mini mac for too long It's supposed to be for his recording studio, but he has let me use it for the past year because he knows how much I love to blog. Anyway, we've been looking to buy one, but haven't felt like it was the right decision yet. Maybe I'll win this one! Thanks for the chance!

  89. If i win, I will give this to my sister, her hubby is in a masters program... sharing is hard right now. I also started following your blog :)

  90. Oh my, how generous! I don't have a laptop, and my desktop that has served us so well for so long is starting to dislike us a bit (after several moves, I don't blame her, poor thing). A laptop would certainly help, as I'm a college student and half my classes are online! I hate leaving the room when the babies are playing to go to the desktop. I love the idea of sitting down on the couch with a laptop, doing my homework, and enjoying the babies playing around me. Thanks for this opportunity!

    (and also? What awesome winning luck you've been having with computers! Love it!) :)

  92. If I won, this would be a wonderful gift to my husband who works so hard and is always out and about - Having a laptop would make his life a little bit easier!

    ReplyDelete
  93. I will agree with everyone else, you are amazing to be giving them both away! I, too, am at the point with the antiquated desktop on it's last leg. And been wishing for a laptop or netbook for our homeschooling. This would be a great blessing if we won! I subscribe to your blog and follow on facebook. Love it every day!

  94. My husband opened a business last November - with a used laptop. It is quickly becoming too slow and ancient for the amount of business that he is now getting. It takes too long to load, and he is needing a new one more and more. This would be such a blessing! You are so generous for doing this Steph!

  98. So nice of you to share your winnings!!! I would have to say... if I won, I would keep it for myself. My laptop is on it's deathbead... every morning I hold my breath to see if it's going to boot up... Ha!

  99. Ok- for real, it's like you read my mind. My laptop got me through grad-school, but is now on it's last legs. As I went TV-less this year, my laptop is my source of news, entertainment, etc. Not to mention I use it to run my etsy store. Since the economy reeked havoc on my career, buying a new one isn't in the cards for me now or anytime soon. Winning one? That would be amazing. Thanks so much for doing this give away! Even if I don't win, I love that you are doing it!

  102. you are the bomb. does anyone even say that anymore? no matter, you really are.

    this would be SO AWESOME for our upcoming trips to ethiopia...we're trying to find a good way to keep in touch with the little people back home and be able to send them pics of their little bro in real time...plus i'd love to be able to journal the trip. crossing all cross-able parts (though i promise to be giddy for whoever wins!). :)

  113. Oh goodness Steph! You're so generous! My sis is needing (for financial reasons) to sell her macbook, and we were going to buy it from her, and if I won, I'd totally just give this to her so she wouldn't need to buy a less expensive replacement.

    You really are such a generous person- it shows in so many ways. :)

  114. Oh my goodness this would be the perfect mother's day gift for my mom. She is constantly complaining how he's always on their computer and she never gets to play on it. She even has mentioned to me how she wishes she could get a lap top but my dad is too cheap to buy one :-)

  115. It would be a gift to my mom. She really needs one of her own. It's my b-day this weekend, so it'd be nice to give to her as a "birth" day present. :)

    ReplyDelete
  116. what an amazingly thoughtful giveaway.... I am sure there are far more deserving and in-need entries out there, but I'll throw my hat in the ring... I'm a single mom, running my own business, and sadly my computer just died this weekend. I am blessed to have a loaner for now - but will soon need a replacement, that I can't really afford right now!
    Thanks - and many Blessings!

  117. I don't need one myself-- but my mom has been in need/want of a computer for a long time, and as a grad-student I just don't have the money to buy her one. But I would LOVE to give her this one if I were lucky enough to win it! :-)

    Thanks for the chance! It's so generous of you to share your prizes like this!

    I think my email shares when I post w/ my good account, but just in case it does not, I'm akseabird on twitter. :-)

  119. steph, this is so neat! thank you for the opportunity.
    so funny, your dad busy forwarding emails and watching youtube. so funny. have him check out the calvary men's ballet on youtube. funny.
    we have one of those (borrowed) laptops that doesn't work super well, takes 10 min to do a 5 minute task...
    would like to have something to store/share pics efficiently. especially for my hair and jewelry products which at the moment do not promote online. too time consuming and hard to work with large files on this. :)

  120. Wow--thanks for sharing your good luck! Our laptop just about died this morning (my husband was trying to boot it up this morning and it "got stuck," according to him, so he quickly backed everything up and is just waiting for the inevitable slow and painful death. So yes, a computer would be good! :)

  130. i know a stay-at-home mom who is looking to get back into the workforce and could really use a laptop.

    ReplyDelete
  131. wow! What a generous gift to bless another out of your blessings. I am in desperate need of a new computer! My desktop now about 7 yrs old is unbearable to use! I spend about a third of my part time hours working from home to try and maintain not only a home and 4 small children and a marriage but also a job. Logging in to do that work though never takes less than 10 minutes! I've often told my husband my next computer needs to be a netbook since they are more affordable yet offer same freedom of moving my work station around the house with me not strapped to a desk! Although with my husband on disability affording anything is a stretch. What a blessing this would be! Carma111803@yahoo.com

  133. You are so very awesome for giving this away! If I win, I will be giving it to my mother. She can't afford so many things that we all take for granted. She has done without TV and cable for years and I know that this would be something she would find quite useful!

    My email address is in my blogger profile. <3

  134. What a nice thing for you to do. I would love the chance to win a notebook. I have a cousin who is starting college in the fall (she wants to be a nurse) and her family doesn't have much money. Her parents make just enough that she hardly gets any federal aid, and with two older brothers also in college, and they're having a hard time trying to figure out how to pay for her school and books and everything. I would love to give it to her and give her a useful tool that will help her not only with her studies, but also to feel like a normal college student--let her forget about money troubles a little bit!

    Email is ohogue@gmail.com. Thanks for the opportunity!

  135. This is so awesome! My laptop is about 4 years old and is dying on me. We have so many medical bills from my daughter's chronic health problems and me having to have surgery in December that we really can't afford a new one now. If I win, this would be beautiful timing for us!! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  136. You are so lovely. Truly. I would freak if I won because our laptop flipped us the peace sign and went to sleep two years ago. katiemayesATgmailDOTcom

  142. I'd love to get back into blogging full time, but since I nurse my little one I can't always be at our desk top. My laptop's health problems are not getting better.....it's OLD and it's only a matter of time until I have to say goodbye to it. (Sniffle, whimper.....) I could really use something to cheer me up out of these postpartum blues and shoot me back into the blogosphere!

    I'd like to win it for my cousin who will be starting college in the Fall. His dad has been out of work for a while and they only have one computer for the whole family.

  170. How amazingly awesome are you! If by some chance I won, I would gift it to my lovely cousin who is about to embark on college in San Francisco.

  196. I would really love to win this. See for the past few years my husband has been out of work and only I work to support our family of three. I don't make much money. And, barely keep our heads above water. Times have been really tough. My boss gave me an old laptop a few years ago and it just recently stopped working. I think the memory was just too full. It also won't access the internet anymore. My son is 10 and just now having to use the internet to complete homework assignments. It would be great for us to be able to finish homework projects, etc. without having to leave the house. My son just recently got a wonderful report card and really deserves something like this to help keeps his grades up. Thank you!
