The spec for this FREE laptop is absolutely fantastic: Intel Core Duo 1.73GHz processor, 512MB DDR RAM, 60GB Shock-mounted Hard Drive, CD-RW/DVD+RW, 14.1" TFT LCD, and a water resistant keyboard. Packed in a magnesium alloy casing (20-times-harder than a base plastic case!) to protect against vibration and drops. See more details here.
All you need to do is simply to write about it in your blog. Very generous!
Did I mention that the ONLY COMPUTER I EVER COULD AFFORD IN MY LIFE has been a 8 years' old Fujitsu desktop?!! The one I'm using right now to write these lines..
Like the proposed RuffPC, it had 3 years warranty (most producers can't guarantee more than one year of work).
But I simply couldn't afford to buy an "average" PC: At the moment of purchasing, my Fujitsu had the latest Pentium processor on the market, and was the smallest desktop in the world!
In result, it served me during last 8 years! Have you had only one computer during last 8 years?!
Mine allowed me to write a MSc. dissertation, learn advanced Internet technologies, and introduce interesting Web ideas. Even today, over ten my personal websites still remain online!
It's difficult even to imagine how the newest RuffPC Laptop can boost my activity, and shift the boundaries of what is possible!
Probably I should start from extending some of my ideas into the famous "Second Life" reality!
(Current hardware in my "first" life simply does not allow me to enter that virtual space).
But ... Harsh environment the RuffPC is built for, - it's not only a risk to spill coffee on a keyboard. Awarding me that Giveaway Laptop means I will need to pay customs duty and/or taxes, - in amount that exceeds cost of several new desktops in local Ukrainian shops! However, I currently can't buy there even the cheapest computer..
Therefore, they should NOT SEND ME THAT LAPTOP!
I've got no cash to afford that FREE Giveaway!!!
Thus, living in a cold country that has average month salary of several hundred dollars, and appreciating the sincere intentions of the successful business in sunny California,
I'm making them a generous present,
- ADVERTISING THE RuffPC FOR FREE!
