HP Envy Me Contest

When I retired from my office job earlier this year to work on HUG and start my own advertising company, Adfluent Media Inc., I had to return my very corporate Lenova Thinkpad and find a laptop that was going to be suitable for my "new lifestyle".

This baby was going to be an extension of me and go where I go... South America, Western Europe and the US (it was in for a real adventure)! Since my laptop is also my money making machine I needed powerful hardware that was fast and reliable with an enhanced Windows 7 experience. And of course, I love my tunes so streaming music/videos and sound quality are all important to me.

So here I am in the Sacred Valley, Peru with my HP ENVY 14. At 1.1" thin and less than 6 pounds, this laptop travels extremely light for the jet-setter and business woman on the go. I have everything I need to run an efficient office away from home including managing my e-banking, day trading, shopping online, blogging and keeping in touch with family and friends. Thanks to the Beats Audio Console, I'm rocking it out like a superstar and totally looking like one with HP's show-stopping design, brush aluminum finishes and backlit keyboard!


Are you Envious yet?

Well you don't have to be because we'll love to share our HP experience with you by giving away this HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition laptop to one lucky hip + urban girl or guy.

  1. I don't really want to be "the envy" of all my friends but sometimes it would be nice to wallow in all the amazing glory if and when I win this amazing laptop! Having to share a laptop with my hubby is starting to be such a pain especially since I work from home.
    Thanks for hosting this great giveaway!

  2. Not gonna lie and make up something that I don't really mean... sooo.. I want to win because I want a new laptop.. simple! :)

  3. As a technie nerd who regularly uses 3 monitors at work, I'm drooling over the laptop. I love my friends, but it's always fun to have them a bit envious of me once in a while. Not to worry, I'll share ...maybe. ;)

  4. Because while I love my workhorse laptop I use on my day-to-day it is getting on in age and it is bulky to bring around to places where something like a tablet just doesn't cut it (which is most places).

    Also, it would be fun to write a blog post/tweet/FB status update to everyone and get em REAL envious of me with my HP Envy 14 Beats Edition.

  10. I so could so use a laptop, after losing my job in April I am trying to get myself back on track looking for a job, my laptop is so dying, it makes it impossible to get things done. With a new laptop I can work on the go! This would be the best christmas gift ever and the fact that I could win it would make everyone envious and very happy for me!

    I am still using my desktop from university - 8 years ago, so no one is envious of me now. In fact, it's a source of scorn. I'd love a new laptop so I could do work and stay connected on the go... and tell everyone I won a laptop from HUG!

  15. I too am a world traveller. To have such a portable device will aid in my quest to conquer the world.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Seeing as my current laptop is a tad old (i.e. prehistoric), an upgrade would be oh so appreciated! @elleveetee

    ReplyDelete
  17. If I win, I wouldn't rub it in my friends' faces, but I sure will show them what a great giveaway this is! :P This small and lightweight laptop would be perfect for a traveller like myself. I always take my laptop with me. This is also just perfect to replace my current laptop which is on the verge of retiring.
    Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

  18. I wish I had this when I went to Peru, instead I had a not-so-cool HP Touch :(

    And since I can't afford to replace my old Lenovo Thinkpad with a Macbook Air, an HP Envy will be awesome. Plus my cat would be very envious.

  20. I would love to win this laptop... I'd have a hard time deciding if it was going to be for me (I'm a jetsetter like Wendy) or if I would be super generous and give it to my boyfriend who jetsets along with me - both of us need to be connected to the net almost all the time. It is a sexy little laptop, though! That's for sure!

  23. After years of lugging around my current HP laptop (17" so much heavier!) I think this laptop would be much more practical for me to have. My current laptop has taken a serious beating over the years and has gone with me on most of my trips. On the last trip to Montreal for my friend's bachelor party I cracked the plastic holding the monitor in so it can't be long before it stops working. I need a much lighter sleaker upgrade :)

  24. I so want to win this laptop because I only am able to use two fingers to type on my old one.. and although I'm a fast 2-finger typist.. it's really holding my production back. Please please please pick me.. (and I travel between two countries all the time and the lightweight laptop means that I can take more funky shoes in my bag)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would love to get back to design work and this would be a huge help in making that dream come true (hopefully before my current laptop dies on me).

  29. I don't want my friends to "envy " me because I would definitely share. So why do I want to win this. Well currently my laptop fried and I have borrowed my bro-in-laws (he's so sweet). That's how I tweet and check emails. I plan on starting my masters soon so I would definitely need this envious laptop :) and above all, I have never owned an HP so this wuld definitely be a treat.

    Thank you so much for giving us all a chance to win this! You guys ROCK!

OMG would I love a laptop so I can get away from my PC and desk, everyday it's the same, after a few hours I start gettin all stabby and honestly may take out my aggression on this boat anchor of a computer that I bought in 2004, which I can't because I just don't have the extra funds as I live in a really old house that sucks the cash out of my wallet. Wow was that all one sentence??woohoo!!
    I posted on my FB wall (Debbie Bashford) and tweeted too @skeetersden

  43. I am crossing my fingers, toes, arms, legs, and etecetera in hopes that I win this laptop. Not for me, but for my Mum. She learned to use a computer only a few years ago, and now relies on it for aspects of her home business and to keep in touch with long-distance friends and family - like me! Never one to buy things for herself, she's currently using a bulky old laptop that is painfully slow and not at all suited to her needs. As a student, I can't afford to buy her a new one so winning this laptop and giving it to her on Christmas morning would be amazing! Thanks for the chance!

  46. I would love to be the envy of my friends, just for a minute or two as currently, I envy all of them. All of my friends have laptops while I have none. Desktop computers are wonderful when at home and work but I really need something portable that I can take where ever I go so that I can stay connected to my world...

    ReplyDelete
  47. I tweeted and shared on FB!

    The reason I want the HP Envy laptop: my Dell laptop is ancient - 6 years old! It's so slow at this point that I barely use it at all. I want to be able to do much more with a laptop and my current one is just not cutting it!

  60. I am typically a kind hearted loving person but ever so often i like to unleash my "Green Power". Green power is the ability to turn mere mortals into Fuzzy Little(green with envy)Monsters, but don't worry the effect is harmless and only causes temporary mild sweating, eye brow raising, nose flaring and a short but sudden feeling of wishing they were you instead of them. My surplus of Green Power is very low and this will bring it back to normal levels. I also just purchased the Black Dr. Dre Solo Beats headphones and they would go perfect together! It's like the perfect pair of shoes to go with the even more perfect handbag!!!!

  77. Ok so I don't really want to be the envy of my friends. What I really want is for my daughter to stop paying my son off so she can use his laptop. Paying him off you ask- well she sends him so the store on average of three times aday. She's doesn't need anything she just needs him out of the house so she can use his laptop (which is an hp by the way). He has aspergers and needed a good laptop for school hence his new computer. A new computer for her would also save my sanity. Please, please, please bless us with a new computer I just can't take the bickering anymore.

  83. I am working on an ancient looking HP, never should have bought it, from the day I got it trouble and problems - too many to share.. I have been using it for just over 2 years and right now, totally not financially feasible for me to purchase another one.. I want to be the envy of not only my friends but work colleagues and not be embarrassed pulling out at Starbucks or while traveling.. I kind of look like I am bringing a antique with me.. I feel like when I pull out my current laptop, ENVY is the last thing anyone thinks, everyone pretty much crack up, thinking what is this girl using? Please choose me so I can be the ENVY of everyone and SHINE in 2012! Thank you for your consideration!

  84. I don't want this laptop to be the envy of all my friends. I NEED this lap top so my parents can be the envy of all their friends. My parents computer is probably the first computer ever made and with three kids using it all through high school, the keyboard is full of crumbs and stickiness that unfortunately hasn't worn off over the years (sorry mom). I can't afford to buy them a new computer, or I would - they deserve the world. Please help me give them the best Christmas present ever!

    I know my girls envy me my stretch marks, yoga pants and rug rats. It's time to show them I am so much more with a fabulous, sexy, slim laptop because Lord knows after 5 kids I'll never be slim again.

  100. Lost my job end of October and found myself sans laptop. Being lucky enough to win the HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition would make me the envy of all the other job-seeking, pretend-they-are-busy-working-on-their-laptops folks at Starbucks where I frequently meet business contacts. (And the Starbucks laptop folks envy will pale in comparison to the collective envy of the twitterverse when I post pics of my new, no-one-can-take-this-beauty-away-from-me HP treasure!!)

    I tweeted and posted to facebook too. Nothing left to do but cross my fingers!!

  101. I would love to win this awesome laptop because I would love to be the envy of my friends for once instead of me always envying them. And I've never won anything of significance in my life.

    I would give this laptop to my hubby as he deserves a little treat for all he does for us. He works, cooks, supports and loves us all so much. This would be a great THANK YOU present for him.

  107. Since I have the worst luck with laptops (i.e. got my laptop stolen from the library during exams), it would be a privilege to win this ENVY HP laptop to make whoever stole my computer envy the fact that I rebounded that hiccup in my life like a CHAMP! And besides, this computer is way more sleek and sexy making any thief envy of this prized possession! (FYI: a laptop lock is my next calling :D )

    I am coming up to a huge change in my life!! I am having a baby in the next couple of weeks. I have been in desperate need of a new computer for a while but it has been put on the back burner. I am also a blogger and a new computer would be totally awesome. The light weight will be helpful as I will be carrying around a little being in the next little while and it looks like it would fit perfectly in my diaper bag. I would love to be the envy of all the moms at our upcoming playdates!

  109. My friends would be envious of me winning this because 1. I am already so awesome so having a HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition would clearly make me even MORE awesome - I didn't even know that was possible.
    2. It's sleek and black like a ninja & I'm one awesome ninja.
    3. I don't even own a laptop & I am heading back to school in Jan for Creative Writing and showing up with paper & pen would just not flow.

    Thanks a bunch!

  112. I think my friends are envious of me living overseas already, but I am envious of them because I want to be able to see their faces everyday! Some pretty shoddy luck has left me with a slow brick of a machine that has no camera and virtually no microphone which makes me eat my headphones in attempt to get them to hear me. All I want to do is skype and see them and make movies to make them smile. :)

If I won this super cool HP ENVY Beats edition, I would surely be the ENVY of all my friends-the perfect laptop for a super nerd by day and a beats lover by night!

  114. Having a laptop would help me enormously with work! My child is in school part time, I work full-time hours but also take care of my child when she is home.

  116. Why do I want to be the envy of my friends and win this laptop?...

    It started many years ago. At first a laptop was just a portal to the Internet. It was a way to procrastinate from doing the schoolwork that I was paying tens of thousands of dollars to get assigned to me. In other words, it was my crutch.

    Over time my interests shifted and the stars aligned. All that Internet time paid off and I started to realize that I'm pretty good at...the Internet. In the real world working for the Internet became a thing and I realized that with a few tweaks I could actually make a career out of this.

    I looked at my laptop and instead I saw a magic carpet. One that would take me wherever I wanted to go in the world and in life. In my excitement I did the one thing that could crush my dreams...I sat on my magic carpet laptop.

    Now, my poor laptop is looking a little worse for wear and rarely gets out of the house. I would love to donate her in exchange for that sexy HP Envy that I swear I will never sit on!

  120. I'm a 4 10", female-webdesigner on the go... I have always been known as the girl who carries such big laptop and backpack - All throughout college, postgrad, and even work! Not only did my laptops I've owned were half my size but they were also heavy. My elders have warned me carrying such a heavy laptop/bag would not be good on my back... but I take it as that saying "having my whole life on my shoulders". Having my laptop on my back is life.

    For once I'd like something light to continue my journeys of learning... and to "grow" ;)

    This laptop would offer me such independance and organization for all the volunteer work that I do with my sons hockey league, (it's so lightweight I can bring it to the link)
    and my daytime job working for a charity.

    My mission is to inspire and I am certain the HP ENVY 14 Beats Edition will definitely help me do that...whoooo!

  125. This HP will not make me the envy of my friends, it will make me an inspiration.

    Very lightweight and fast, so I can get a lot of work done:

    When I am at the hockey rink, where I volunteer for the free league for children.

    When I travel. Jamaica baby!

    When I work for the charity Literature for Life. That requires me to travel to the various reading circles we provide in the city of Toronto.

    Love it!

    That computer is beautiful. Im just gonna ke ep it real with you guys I want to be the ENVY of all my friends because my close girlfriends, (including me) have all been complaining about our laptops that we've had for over 3 years. My friend Crystal complains that her computer is constantly over heating, my other friend Tenielle's laptop is always shutting down, and my other friends Lindsay and Sarahs computers wont even start. Then we have me, whose computer is on the brink of breaking down, AGAIN. A couple months ago my computer crashed and best buy kept telling me different diagnoses. So finally my dads friend at work did some magic on it but added when he finished " it could be a day, 3 months, or a year, but this computer is ready to breakdown again, youre gonna need a new one". Heartbroken. Its still working, but im afraid its dying a slow death by the weird noises and 10 minute start up time.
    So, if i win this computer and tell my friends they are definitely gonna be envious, but be happy for me and congradulate me at the same time knowing that I needed this laptop desperately! I love those girls!!!

  130. I want to be the ENVY of all my nursing friends as I make the most of my breaks on night shifts at the hospital surfing the web in style while making it through my 12 hour shifts. Then, since we nurses work hard AND play hard, I can be the ENVY of all my friends when I blast my extensive music collection at my house parties on my brand new ENVY laptop. And when I just gotta get away from it all, I can take that envy and make it global, as everyone around me on the plane drools at my super portable powerhouse of a laptop.

    Reading hot blogs, eatin’ hot dogs I spent most of my days
    Pointin’ N Clickin’ N surfin’ all mellow
    ‘Til everything froze and smoke started to billow

    I thought a couple of days
    Then it’d be all good
    But it seems my old faithful was dead under the hood
    So I yelled and I cried and I pulled out my hair
    I said 'Life without Wendy and Lisa? No way! That’s not fair!”

    I pulled up to the library and on an ancient PC
    Looked up my fave girl’s guide and this contest struck me!
    If anything I thought that my odds were rare
    But I thought “Woman forget it—I’ll rap—take the dare”

    Now ladies you know the story can’t end here,
    Cuz if I win I’ll record this track for all H.U.G.s to hear!
    I’ll use my new Envy so you’ll know it’s OG

    I would dearly love to be the envy of my children and grandchildren. For many years now, they have repeatedly told me how antiquated my computer is and how I dearly need to upgrade. However, they feel I wouldn't know which was the best laptop to buy on my own and would definitely need their assistance in purchasing one. Would it ever be sweet revenge to own one which is more than comparable to theirs.

  140. With 4 rambunctious (sp?) Boys, I am not the envy of anyone! This laptop would finally make me the envy of my wonderful friends for the simple fact that I have a new computer that has never been touched by children's hands! No sticky mouse, no milk smeared keys, no fingerprinted screen! Can you even imagine?? We all share one computer right now and Angry Birds and TVO Kids seem to have taken over my right to read grown up content or answer emails! Bottom line...I want a shiney, pretty new laptop that I actually get to use! PLEEEEEAAAASE!!!

The battery has never held much of a charge. Would love it for visiting family and friends and we could show them the coupon sites and contests we have always been talking about. We could relegate that other laptop for levelling the table. :)

It may be 2 years old, but it's infinitely quieter than his existing comp which squeals with the furor of a pied piper led horde of rats who have been evicted from their basement dwellings to make room for a hamster house.

    It's loud, it hurts to be in the living room.

    And I'd be the envy of all my friends to be able to say I live with a boy in a quiet house.

  146. I'm a Mom... I always said I would NEVER be one of those Moms who never takes time for herself and always buys things for her kids before she buys what she needs for herself... and now I feel myself slipping into that blah stereotype! I need something (like a new laptop) that spoils me and also makes me look kinda cool again. I'm a manager at a woman's clothing store, I work with a lot of younger women and I'm starting to get vibes that they think I'm a dork... I guess the tipping point was I was grooving to the music playing, shaking my booty, and one of them put her hand on my shoulder and requested I "just stop". Ahh I am a sad little person now aren't I? Make me look cool, send me a laptop so I can show it off and maybe decal it up with some glitter. yeehaw!
