As little as five years ago, workstations were beyond the reach of general consumers. Now, not only is hardware more affordable but workstations have applications not just for work but for play. To stand a chance of winning an HP xw4600 Workstation with Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 processor, NVIDIA Quadro FX1700 512MB PCIe Graphics, 2GB DDR2 ECC RAM and Genuine Windows® Vista™ Business (64-bit), worth over $2,000, we want you to impress us with how you would creatively use the workstation.
Details on the giveaway after the cut
Over the next three weeks we'd like you to submit your proposals as to what interesting project you envisage using the xw4600 for - your entry could be a video mock up, photos or a written brief - and on December 10th we'll pick the one that we feel best demonstrates the potential of the HP workstation. That person gets the opportunity to create their project for real. Entries should be submitted in this forum thread.
DreamWorks used HP's workstations to produce the animated film Kung Fu Panda, so there's massive potential for what the winner could do. So think creatively and try to make your entry eye-catching and persuasive. Good Luck!
