Wow; what contest to run, Hmmmmmm, I am gonna agree on the desktop system. I don't know though maybe a grand Prix with several things would work to. You gave away multiple slate devices so why not just multiple devices. One thing as well is this is a hardware site so what about hardware such as GPU's CPU's MB's Memory SSD's.

OS:Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit
MB:ASUS Z87C
CPU:Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 4770 ***
GPU:Geforce GTX 770 4GB
Mem:***ingston 16384MB RAM

The Hopper!

Great show as always guys. I think Marco hit the nail on the head, in a year it will be very interesting to see where Microsoft is at with platform integration.

I know no one has seen a Surface tablet, but any predictions, based on what we know, as to how Surface will compare to the Transformer and iPad?

As far as contests go, a lot of cool notebooks have come out recently, one of the gaming notebooks would make an awesome prize.

Hmm.. components... Maybe we can work something up there.  Keep the ideas flowing!

I like the components idea a lot. You guys always test the very best gear and a chance to win any of that would be epic!

I think that it's cool that you're even asking this question too!

Your "HH home office makeover" contest a few years ago was cool too.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Lol, i like realneils idea of bring that makeover back, back sadly that's not possible i would guess.

I wouldn't mind another tablet sweep, laptops work too, basically anything works xD

As an outsider looking in, I'd go for the hardware/components suggestions. And if HH could be prevailed upon to let even those of us who don't reside in the US or Canada join the competition, my cup would runneth over....

Nice webcast, by the way ; valuable comments by all participants....

I have a hankering for a notebook computer. I've actually never owned one. And if I were to actually buy one, it would have to be comparable to a desktop PC in terms of it's performance.
