31 Sites = 31 Days of the Dragon

Hewlett Packard and BuzzCorp have partnered with the blogosphere and the result is 31 chances to win what looks to be the ultimate entertainment luggable notebook: The HP Pavilion Dragon HDX Entertainment Notebook PC.


This one isn’t meant for economy class on airplanes, but it sure is one to use at home, take to grandma’s on the other side of town, bring to parties to amaze your friends.
