    And on to the ‘First Place’ prize, the HP Mini 311 Netbook…

    Maybe because I’m usually more rooted to one place, and enjoy a spacious 22″ screen, I’d be tempted to pass the Mini 311 to my second daughter. She’s certainly more mobile and would appreciate the size and power of the 311. (And I’d get some respite from demands for a new PC!)

    Of course, this would be linked in to the HP Data Vault, where she could create her own music and video library and have it all backed up, too. This is perhaps the more important aspect of the Data Vault and her own digital world — because she uses her PC to create original artwork. She’s good! And I’d want to know that we’d have all the originals locked down safely, but ready to share and enjoy.
