We've always enjoyed the chance to give back to the community with giveaways, and we certainly wished we could have them more often. So when the opportunity arose to combine tech content that most of you will enjoy with an open giveaway of PC upgrade kits, we got to the task of making it happen. After months of planning, we're happy to announce the debut of a new video series we are calling "Upgrade My PC Please!"
What is Upgrade My PC Please?
Part video content, part community interaction, part open giveaway, Upgrade My PC Please! is a new collaboration between TechSpot and Hardware Unboxed.
Each week we'll look at 5 PCs from users (your submissions) who are in need of an upgrade. We'll discuss their current hardware configuration and then propose the upgrades we think should be made to improve the systems. For the upgrades we have allocated a budget of $500 per episode during the first season. The idea is to help PC enthusiasts who are struggling to keep their system up to date and hopefully we can do that in an entertaining and educational fashion.
The 5 computers will no doubt all differ, at least to a degree, and therefore so too will the upgrade options. Once we propose the upgrades, it’ll be up to you, the community, to decide which one of the 5 systems deserves to win the upgrade package by voting for the PC you want to see upgraded the most.
Starting today we're open to your PC submissions so you can actively participate by sending in your full computer specs.
Come next Tuesday (in exactly one week), we'll present the first 5 PCs and the upgrade winner will be announced on the following episode. We’ll purchase the hardware from their local computer store and have it delivered, so they can carry out the upgrades.
For the first season of Upgrade My PC Please! we're only able to cover a select few regions, but we do hope to expand as the series develops. People located in United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom are eligible to enter and win.
