    Voted for monitor, only because it's so freaking hard (or expensive via Dell) to get bigger than 24 inch and 1080p. :(

    I think this is second or third competition I've seen here, but first I've joined. Nice one TS. :)

    Count me in for this contest please!

    I'm hoping for the CPU/mobo/memory combo. I'm running one of the first 939 Athlon x2 procs (3800+) that AMD made, with an Abit Av8 mobo, and DDR-400 memory... boo! I'm in definite need of an upgrade!! Oh, and my GPU is a Radeon AGP 9600xt :-( ...my rig is fine for surfing the net, but forget about an modern gaming!

    Thank you!

    I voted for the Geforce GTX 460. I'm building a custom PC in my workshop for myself for gaming and have made a list of my specifications and this is the graphics card I chose. It would be awesome to get it.

    I voted for the iPad. I live in Botswana and they haven't released it here yet. Some people do get it through grey importers but it costs a lot. I really like portable technology as it allows me to work and play on the road. I travel often during the weekend with my parents to visit my grandparents and the drive is quite monotonous.

    I have never owned a tablet, but I think it should be great. I can't afford to buy apple products (even if it were available) here where I live as it is always beyond the budget my parents give me. I have a sylvania 7-in netbook, but it's performance is sad :<. I have read and seen so much about the iPad that I really wish I had it. One person at our school had bought one when he went on holiday to USA, and now he is like *GOD*. I really likethe idea on which the iPad is based on.

    I was also thinking about voting for the monitor. I really need to upgrade my samsung 920nw as it is getting old and and it only accepts D-Sub (the usually blue plug, I think it is also called VGA/RGB) connection. My graphics card supports HDMI but my monitor doesn't. It is an nVidia GF GT210, and it lets me play NFS Shift and some other games at low-medium settings with playable framerates. THe 27-inch would be great for watching movies. The reason I didn't choose it is because, it is something that is available here and I know that I might be able to eventually get it, but the iPad is not so likely.

    I really really want this iPad but I don't usually have luck to win stuff for free. I have never in my life won something "for free". May the force be with me...

    I picked the Budget laptop or netbook. It would be for my wife as she is always sharing her PC with her kids and she needs something of her own.

    CPU/mobo/memory - Graphics Card seems easier to fit with the family budget for the holiday season :)
    27" - soo tempting...

    Yah, I ended up having to flip a coin between the cpu/mobo/memory and SSD, with the SSD winning... Building a new Win7 computer this winter anyhow, so either of those 2 options would be a great.

    It seems that the budget netbook isn't as popular as I had hoped, but I can keep my fingers crossed. My poor netbook has certainly seen better days.

    I voted for the Ipad because it is totally unlike anything that I already have.

    I voted for the CPU/Motherboard/Memory combo because I 'worke4d it out' that the Core i7 alone is about the same value or more than any of the other prizes... and you win a motherboard and memory supporting that CPU? if so that's brilliant.

    And I've been wanting to build a intel based gaming PC since I finished my AMD one but I just haven't saved the money to do it yet(buying games etc =P) winning these components will be a great 'head start' to that PC build =)

    i dont think anyone can beat a brand new spanking 27" LG monitor. We look at the monitor DAILY, and our eyes will certainly thank us for having a nice monitor. peace!
