If there's one thing we love, it's giving away free stuff to SlashGear readers, and Lenovo have stepped in to help us do just that. They've given us a Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z all-in-one desktop PC to give away, the 19-inch slimline computer we reviewed back in April, and we've come up with a super-simple way for you to stand a chance of putting it on your desk.
Lenovo reckon the ThinkCentre A70z takes up around a third of the space of a regular desktop computer, by squeezing display, processor, hard-drive and the rest into one compact chassis. In keeping with this minimal footprint, we're asking for your best suggestions on how to save desk space. Perhaps you rely on the cloud rather than stacks of optical media, or maybe you replaced your pot-plant with an animated wallpaper; we want to hear your best suggestions.
Head down to the comments section to tell us about your best desk-saving ideas, and we'll pick one at random to take away the ThinkCentre A70z. Entries will be accepted until midnight PST on July 3rd 2010 - good luck!
