here is what i would love to be able to do with this if i won..

1. my son darrell and his lovely wife are starting out in their first home next week with their 6 month old little charlize mae.He and julie both enjoy a computer ,but about 7 months ago,mine crashed beyond saving,They gave me theirs!They refuse it back saying it is mine.Right now he is the only one working due to little charlie,and julie has relocated here from arizona.There is no way he can get them one now and this would be a godsend to be able to give this to them.They would get a laptop!he would get the hp hdx notebook.
3. This would be my daughter rita.She has 3 litlle kids ,6,3, and 5 months.She can not afford a good computer and billy(6) loves them already.He goes to the homework sites and the learning sites.He is top in his 1st grade and this would be a great tool for him and rita would have a computer to be able to communicate with others online after the babies are asleep.That is her 2 hours before bed.she and billy would get the touch smart pc. and the photosmart pack. grandkids-thy are the wind beneath my wings.I have some health problems but when i am with them,i remember what is most important.They are,they need me as much a s i need i stay as hopeful and optemistic as i can with things.They are my life,my earthly blessings.They get the dvd's.
4.stepson zack-his mom left him with me when he was 4.he is now 16 and has adhd.He struggles at school but really tries.He has had a lot of nerve problems and i think the hp mini would be great for him... has always helped me when i had problems and iwould love to be able to give him the entertainment pack.he is a musician.
5.last but not least my sister.She gets the rest.She has went through lots of test lately ,medical for tumors,and she would enjoy that.

What a thoughtful post. It sounds like you put a lot of thought into who you would spread the magic to.

Also, that is amazing that you received a computer in your time of need and now potentially have a chance to give back. What comes around goes around, right?

Good luck in the contest and happy holidays!
