Unfortunately, the free HP laptop deal I was originally posting about has expired. Yet that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other ways to find a free laptop for college!
If you haven’t already, you should sign up immediately for Fastweb and keep an ear out toward the local news. Since a lot of free laptop offerings are local and temporary, these are a great source of keeping up to date on these contests and awards that you’re specifically eligible for.
As the costs of technology are rapidly declining, more and more schools and districts are providing free laptops to high school students. The same phenomenon is occurring in more colleges and universities as well. As of mid-January I don’t see any large nation-wide programs being offered at the moment, but I’ll be sure to keep this updated as I come across more awards, contests, or promotions that provide free computers for college students.
OK, so its Friday night at midnight and maybe I should be doing something more interesting than blogging about free stuff for college students.
Well, 15 free HP Laptop Computers for college freshman is kind of exciting, isn’t it?
Just by answering 10 questions that can be found throughout the blog, a college student can apply to win one of these free laptops. If you complete the contest held at each site, you can have up to 15 chances to win!
Now obviously, free laptops are going to bring out a lot of interest. You can expect thousands of people to register. The odds might not be great, but they are certainly better than zero if you just keep up with the promotion and check out each site as the contest rolls out.
Ok, I’m going to keep this short because I don’t have all the details – and the details for later websites haven’t even been fully released yet.
Here are the education blogs that have been invited to participate, and you’ll be able to find more information about signing up at he following links during the time-frames listed.
