Heading to the olympics? Be careful! A study released by the Ponenmon Institute reveals that London’s Heathrow airport is the top location for stolen laptops in Europe, with an average of 900 laptops stolen weekly! Fortunately, we’re giving away an Ultrabook that is ready to handle even that worse case scenario… That is because Ultrabooks feature Anti-Theft Technology. So if you are one of the unlucky ones to have your laptop stolen or misplaced, it keeps your personal information personal by disabling the device from anywhere in the world.
Another Intel survey has recently come out that reveals some startling stats related to traveling with tech. According to this study, 77% of travelers find losing their computer more stressful than losing a wedding ring! 49% find that other travelers peeping at their devices while traveling, is their #1 pet peeve. Meanwhile, female travelers admit greater travel anxiety than men, being significantly more likely than male travelers to report losing their mobile computing device as very stressful (82 percent vs. 73 percent).
With all of the stress involved in traveling with tech, we have teamed up with Intel to give away an Asus Zenbook Ultrabook. This super svelte Ultrabook is sure to make your summer travels that much sweeter, not too mention – less stressful. That is because it packs in all the important qualities you would want from a computer that you’re traveling with – like great battery life, instant on features, and performance on the go. It’s also perfect for slipping in to any carry-on or tote.
You can enter to win the Ultrabook below, and there are several ways to enter, but if you want the most chances to win, then go ahead and submit a photo of your current non-travel friendly computer set up. Submitting a photo counts as 25 entry points, so it will greatly increase your chance of winning the Zenbook Ultrabook!
Update 7/30/12: You can now submit a photo by attaching one in a comment below, or you can email us directly with the photo attached.
Update 8/17/12: Congratulations to Alberto R., of Puerto Rico who won the giveaway. We’re also updating this post with a gallery of some of the contest’s photo submissions. It seems like there are many PC users out there in desperate need of an Ultrabook upgrade!
