Blog Giveaway: Win a Windows 8 Intel Tablet!.

By Posted in - Travel Blog & Travel Giveaway on March 18th, 2013 Samsung Intel-based tablet.


I recently wrote about putting a Windows 8 Atom tablet to the test as part of SocialChorus’ #TabletCrew, and now they have asked us to help promote it further by putting a brand new Intel tablet into one of our fan’s hands.

You can enter to win a Samsung ATIV Smart PC tablet valued at $649. The contest will run from today through 11:59 PDT on Saturday, March 23. We’ll randomly select a winner on Sunday, March 24, and put you in contact with SocialChorus to claim the grand prize. (Unfortunately, this giveaway is only for U.S. based fans.)

Seriously, you’re giving away a Windows 8 tablet?

Samsung ATIV Smart PC XE500T1C-A04US

Yep! We’re really excited to be able to offer this fantastic prize to one of our readers. I’ve been using my Acer tablet for nearly two months, and I am proud to say I am a PC again. What I dig about Intel’s new Atom tablets is that they can run Windows 8 store apps as well as legacy programs, like iTunes and Microsoft Office. Not only that, the new Atom processors offer outstanding battery life, which makes them ideal for travel. In fact, I recently coupled mine with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and will be taking it to the Galapagos Islands with us this week.

Here’s a few details about the Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T you can win:

  • Intel Atom Z2760 1.8GHz processor; experience seamless computing
  • 2GB of DDR2L memory; delivers fast, consistent data throughput
  • 64GB eMMC; saves all your files and other data
  • 11.6″ LED HD Display; provides a smooth and intuitive touch navigation
  • Windows 8 32-Bit OS; includes the latest Windows operating system

 How do you enter?

It’s simple! You can earn up to 3 entries. We will give you one entry for each of these actions that you complete.

1. You can post a comment in this blog post telling us the first place you’d take the tablet if you won.

2. You can enter on our Facebook page. Just follow this LINK and then place your vote in our reader’s poll.

3. You can enter through twitter. Follow @BeersandBeans, and then tweet out this message:

“I just entered to win a Samsung Tablet from @beersandbeans! #inteltablets #tabletcrew”

That’s it! If you have any questions, just let us know!

Good Luck!

Beth & Randy

The Rules:

The winner must be U.S. based, and agree that they are receiving a Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T with no service or customer support attached. If they have problems with their tablet, they must contact Samsung directly. SocialChorus will ship the tablet within four weeks from the date that we notify them of the winner.

    The first place I’d take it is to the park near my house in San Francisco. It always feels so obvious and risky to have a laptop out at the park — my New York paranoia is still strong after 15 years in San Francisco. But sometimes I just want to read things I have on my computer but sit in the sunshine while doing it!
