While tablets and smartphones continue to eat into the portable computing market share, laptops and Ultrabooks are still considered to be the most practical option when it comes to productivity. There is just so much more that you can do on a laptop, and with Ultrabooks coming into their own and dropping in prices, people are starting to realize just how much fun productivity can be on a much lighter device.
Now, Intel is giving everyone the chance to win an Ultrabook of their own. To register, you need to install the Pocket Intel app on your iOS, Android or Blackberry device, and then enter your contact information. Obviously, they’ll need this to get in touch with you should you win. The app is actually an augmented reality based game, and to start it, you need to scan a marker at a participating retail store or event. You’ll need to be quick because as soon as the marker is scanned, Ultrabooks will start flying out and you’ll need to capture the Golden Ultrabook in the shortest time possible so you can answer the trivia question and post your time on the leaderboard.
Users will be battling against each other to catch the golden Ultrabook and post the shortest times on the leaderboard, and you can even lower your time even more by asking a representative from a participating store to enter their Retail Salesperson code. The promo is already on its last cycle (December 17-30), so you have until the end of the month to try and get the lowest score possible. This contest is in participation with Intel’s retail partners in Alabang Town Center, Festival Mall, Parqsquare/Glorietta, Robinsons Place Manila, SM Mall of Asia Cyberzone, SM Megamall Cyberzone, and SM North Edsa Cyberzone.
Prizes at the End of the Cycle:
- 1 Intel Core i3 powered Ultrabook
- 4 winners of discount vouchers worth Php20,000
- 4 winners of discount vouchers worth Php8,000
- 10 winners of discount vouchers worth Php4,000
