Reminisce #5 – Everyone thought this at the same time

You know it’s true. Every one of you entrantees was thinking what I was thinking on that fateful November day when the contest ended. But this also has special meaning for us. It signified the end of an award winning social media campaign, the first one that any of us had tried. So it was nice to finally kick our feet up and look at what we accomplished. Of course, the contest would have been nothing without you, the contestee! So thank you for being awesome!

I’ve also got to give props to the rest of the Laplink Marketers. While you are usually hearing from me on these posts (Andy Tolton), you unfortunately don’t get to interact with the stellar brainiacs that I get to on a daily basis, and without whom this contest would have never happened in the first place. So a shout out to Neil Minetto, Josh Conley, Ralf Bennett, Creed Cameron(the intern that is flapping his wings back at school), Evan Mann(new intern) and Brian Duimstra(the new web/design guy). Congrats on a job well done!!!

Reminisce #3 – Getting Spied on Isn’t Comfortable…

I’m still not sure how I feel about getting spied on… I still think it was rather rude. But oh well, it made for a pretty sweet pic anyway!

Why did I have to be the one to be spied on, am I the only one that can’t be trusted?? Enough venting, your turn to vent. You had to have liked this one, right?

Reminisce #2 – Charging the Car

Good thing that lappy has a strong battery. Without it we wouldn’t have been able to charge one of our team member’s car and he probably would’ve had to sleep at the office… Thanks Lappy!!!

Okay okay, you got me… It didn’t actually charge the car. But the special effects are so rad that it kinda looks like it did right? Most Laplink peeps liked this picture the best out of all our pictures from last year, you agree?

WIN WIN WIN

Guess what?? Remember that little laptop giveaway we had going a few months ago? Well… As you know it was pretty awesome and apparently you and I aren’t the only ones that think so. Some pretty cool people at the Internet Advertising Competition thought it was cool too because they awarded us with the Best Computer: Software Social Media Campaign for 2010. Isn’t that amazing?? You can see details about results and stuff here. AND, look at the press release HERE.

This contest would not have been nearly as amazing if we didn’t have awesome fans like you, so thank you thank you thank you!

More good news! We are in final preparations to run ANOTHER contest. The prize for this one will be the FAMOUS laptop from last year’s giveaway. You remember it; it was the one that was in all of those hilarious and great looking pictures we posted every day(Hint: The one in the picture over there). The chance to win it will be yours, so get your fingers warmed up and your Facebook®/Twitter® accounts ready to go. We will have a run date soon so be prepared!

Laplink Laptop Giveaway – Multi-touch Pad

This isn’t like other touch-pads. Most just let you scroll by running your finger along the right side of the pad. With this you can use simple two-finger gestures to zoom in and out, rotate images and scroll – right from the touch pad! Or just use one finger to click on things… Pretty sweet right! It’s so awesome you might even opt to use that and not use a hand-held mouse.

Level with me, wouldn’t your fingers love to touch this pad??

Laplink Laptop Giveaway – Hercules Hercules!

This is one tough laptop. ThinkPads have had a reputation of having a nearly indestructible design. Even though they have gone to a prettier look, they certainly didn’t skimp on the quality of material. If you don’t believe us, have a look at this video! We happened to walk into the fitness center at our office building and found out the secret to why this thing is so strong…

Impressive right?? Can you bench that much?

No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. And we have not altered the laptop in any way, it can actually do this! The Lenovo® ThinkPad® Edge’s monitor will lay completely flat. We put it in a limbo competition with other laptops, and the ThinkPad won in a land-slide victory!
