Worst PC in America!
Do you own a bad PC? A really, really bad one? It might be bad because it’s antiquated, in ramshackle condition, overwhelmed with a desktop full of junky software, or just plain ugly–or maybe all of the above.
Well, if you do, today might be your lucky day–they are looking for the worst computer in the country. And when they find it–or at least the worst one possessed by someone who enters their contest–they will give its owner a truly nifty new PC, the HP Envy 13, courtesy of HP.

Convince Harry that your PC is the worst PC in the U.S. & win a new laptop.
Attention, computer owners! Some of you own some really lousy PCs–either ones that were dogs in the first place, or which have gotten so roughed up over time that they're just plain sad. Maybe most of these machines aren't in active use–I sure hope not–but if they aren't, they're lurking in closets and attics across this great nation. I just know it.
And they want to hear about them, since the one type of computer more memorable than a great one is a bizarrely terrible one. Here's your incentive to spill your guts: Courtesy of HP, they will pick a winner from among all people who tells them about their bad PCs–and that person will receive HP's extremely slick, feature-laden Envy 13 notebook as a prize. (Thanks to HP for providing it.)
The Envy is less than an inch thick and weighs 3.74 pounds. It includes:
* Windows 7 Pro (64-bit)
* Intel Core 2 Duo Processor SL9600 (2.13 GHz)
* ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 Graphics
* 13.1″ HD LED Infinity WS Display (1600 by 900) with 82 percent color gamut and 8 millisecond response time
* 250 GB (5400RPM) hard drive, 5GB DDR3 SDRAM
* Blu-Ray drive
* 4-cell Li-Ion Battery
