    Wishing everyone Merry Christmas and happy holiday.
    I have one question why this contest is only for UK. What about your international reader. I am in USA and i guess you should allow USA user too.

    Merry Christmas to you too

    I'm guessing this is a UK only competition as

    A - It's a UK spec machine with a UK spec 240v power pack
    B - The machine is in the UK and postage outside the UK via a safe method would be expensive ( £50+ )
    B Part 2 - As the machine is in the UK a reciver outside the UK would be liable for import duty which on an item of this value could be £200+ including admin charges

    Not to mention the added hassle for hexus dealing with tracking and customs forms

    the US has some weird competition laws which iirc prevent people outside the US from winning Competitions originating from the US and vice versa

    also there's the fact that postage to the US costs a couple of legs and an arm

    Does hexus publically announce a winner? Not that I'm suggesting foul play of course

    Re: News - Win an amazing Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 11 laptop

    Its entirely admin decision to decide whether its UK or UK & USA competition and i respect that. That's why I just had a simple question. If it would have been power supply issue then he would have allowed for other countries where 240V is standard and i guess lot of Asian country has that standard. But i do agree that shipping and custom could be hassle. I just wanted to ask hexus admin that whether they will have any contest for USA too in future because their International reader would have got disappointed by this. But no doubt Awesome giveaway and i wish everyone good luck.

    Seems like a direct copy and paste from your website guys, not sure if they are welcome to do that !.

    edit: better link http://laptop.firstblogfirst.com/201...dge-11-laptop/
