I’m still super jealous that Ashley was able to go to the movie screening for The Hunger Games and I wasn’t. And I’m not about to wait in line with hundreds of teenagers to see the movie at midnight tonight so I’m just going to have to arrange a date night later this month to see it with my hubby. Since she’s had behind the scenes of The Hunger Games already, she wanted to do the write up for this giveaway. I just felt like I had to add my two scents because I’m equally excited about the movie as she is and I love Microsoft, in partnership with Lionsgate, they launched a Hunger Games movie companion site: The Capitol Tour, letting you experience the movie online with exclusive, behind-the-scenes content that brings the world of Panem to life. If you’re like me and not going to see the movie right away then you can visit The Capitol Tour to unlock never before movie scenes. You may recognize that exact scene from the trailer – many of the places you’ll experience on the Capitol Tour are pulled directly from the movie, giving you early access to the land of Panem.
HUNGER GAMES Special Edition Laptop GIVEAWAY – Are the Odds in Your Favor?
Yep. You read that right. We are giving away a special edition Hunger Games HP Folio 13. This isn’t just any ordinary computer. This is a quick, sleek, lightweight, fully loaded, business class PC… complete with customized lid. This is not just a decorative skin, but an actual engraving of The Hunger Games movie title and the District 12 logo. This computer is exactly what you need to boast your District pride when visiting the Capitol.
What do I think is most impressive about the HP Folio 13? It is completely portable. When you’re traveling from district to district, running from a flaming fireball, or maybe even a genetically engineered monster, this computer is only 3.3 pounds, has a rubbery grip bottom, and 9 hours of battery life! Lightweight and a strong battery? That’s what every tribute needs!
SUPER fast start up time is also a great feature of this PC. My home district wasn’t big on technology, so when I read that the HP Folio 13 had a 128 GB solid state drive, I didn’t realize that meant lightning-fast bootup, shut down, and sleep-resume times. Now I know that the 128 GB solid state drive outperforms standard hard drives.
Maybe you’re more in the mood for some entertainment. Well the HP Folio 13 can handle that, too. The Intel HD Graphics 3000 with shared graphics memory and the Dolby Advanced Audio built in speakers will fill whatever arena you’re in.
