I Have a Brand New Laptop For One Of You! WOOT! - Sarah Mae
Hi, I'm Sarah.
Join me in keeping on and beginning again!

I Have a Brand New Laptop For One Of You! WOOT!


In this box is a brand new laptop from Staples for one of YOU!

Well, wouldn’t you know that the nice folks at Staples emailed me and asked if I’d like to share a laptop with you in honor of all our babes going back to school.

For real. And, for free.

Along with a wireless router, anti-virus software, and a backpack of choice to boot!


Yes please.

The best part? I’m going to give the stuff to YOU! Except for the backpack, the 7-year-old totally claimed that. Her choice, by the way. And there were plenty of styles to choose from.


Why would a homeschooler need a backpack you ask? Co-op of course! And you know, because it’s all pink pansy safari, and what girl doesn’t want a pink pansy safari backpack?!

I digress.



Specifically, this Toshiba 15.6″ laptop from Staples. It’s got all the goods: HD webcam, Windows 8, intel HD graphics, 6 GB RAM, and a whole bunch of other stuff you can read about here.

I may have booted it up for you…and created a user name…

awesomewinnerYes, I played with your computer, but only slightly, and I promise I didn’t mess anything up! And I’ve already packaged it all back up all nice and safe to send to you.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, if you win, I’ll send you a library of all my eBooks (plus a paperback copy of Desperate). WOOT!


This is so fun.

Enter the Giveaway!

The giveaway includes the Toshiba laptop, a wireless router and anti-virus software. All from Staples. So seriously, you all should go there and support them with your back-to-school purchases, because they rock. In fact, let’s tweet that shall we?

To enter, just fill out the form at the end of this post!

Oh, and…

That was easy.

Yes, that’s my hubs!

Giveaway ends Friday, September 13th at 11:59pm EST!

Love, SM
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Disclosure: Staples sent me the laptop you see in the pictures, the backpack of my daughter’s choice, the wireless router, and the anti-virus software. All but the backpack is going to one of you.

Giveaway open to the continental U.S. only.

  • http://lmbartelt.wordpress.com/ Lisa Bartelt

    I could use a laptop. My husband bought the last one five years ago, and it’s on the verge of death. I’m a writer, and I want to write more. And I want something reliable. (And all that sounds sorta selfish!)

    This would be so useful! I’m an amateur writer and my laptop turns into an inferno after about ten minutes…

  • sharminJ

    I love Staples! I’m a teacher and have the really-awesome-you-spend-lots-of-money-with-us-every-year Teacher Rewards card. I have a senior this year (gasp!) who will be going off to college soon and now he is required to have a laptop AND an iPad, neither of which he has at this moment, this would help us immensely!

  • Amy

    What a great give away! Thanks for sharing the goods with us, and your daughter picked out a GREAT back pack 😀

  • shannonwallace

    My very wonderful hubby NEEDS a laptop! He is deploying very soon, and is able to have a laptop with him. This would be a blessing for him to have a reliable way to possibly Skype with us. Thank you! And thank you Staples!

  • Dena

    I would love to win for our homeschool!!!

  • Anna Zirbel Case

    I would love a laptop. My husband bought me a chromebook early this year, so that I could work on school stuff while being near my children. My kiddos have taken it over, so this mama could use a new laptop.

    Both my husband and I could use a new computer…especially my husband who is working on his Master’s degree! Our computer is really old.

  • Emily

    Wowzers! Quite the giveaway!

  • Thia

    What a great event!

  • Chelsea Farnsworth

    Oh my goodness I could use it!! Mine is literally on it’s last leg and can’t work unless it’s plugged in at all times, which defeats the purpose of a laptop. I actually got this inferior laptop from a class action settlement because my original laptop that I dropped nearly 1k for (almost a decade ago) went to the dreaded blue screen less six months after I bought and wouldn’t boot back up and they sent me this chinzy $150 laptop as a replacement! I guess I shouldn’t complain…all this to say, I would really love this. I use my laptop for blogging, homeschool, paying bills…EVERYTHING!

  • Markand Nancy Radich

    Who could use a laptop in my family? Well, we are a family of 6. I’m the only girl (with the exception of our 7th furry member who joined us when her home burned down in the Waldo Canyon Fire) and I homeschool. So yes, I am the queen of my house of blue. Honestly any and all of us could use it, especially since I love photography!

  • Laurie

    My hubby who is taking online college courses could use this laptop! Thanks for this opportunity to win!

  • wendy

    WOW, how great it would be to win, ours is on it’s last leg and my hubby says he can do no more, and this year we are taking an online curr click science class for the first time so it would be great to have something that won’t die in the middle of class =0) Best of luck to everyone, I know who ever wins will be greatly blessed with such a great gift and library of wonderful books.

  • Shantelle Stately

    My fiance. We are now both in college with one laptop. It is getting difficult to get all of our work done at the same time.

  • http://crystalstine.me/ Crystal

    I would pretend someone else in my family needs it, but mama needs a new laptop. The one I’m on has a mic that works…ish….a battery that dies in less than two hours and it’s currently missing the “a” key. Not only that…um…I kind of make my living online so it’s pretty helpful to have a laptop that works 😉 Also…you’re amazing and this is super fun!

  • Keri


  • Heather Sauerbrey

    Oh yeah and why we could use a laptop … ummm… 6 kids (5 in school) and only one laptop in the house

  • Cheryl Verver

    I could use my laptop to write my lesson plans on, it would be so helpful!

    How great! I was just at Staples today buying paper and envelopes for our adoption fundraiser. We are traveling to Eastern Europe in November (Lord willing) to adopt an older special needs girl. A laptop would be so helpful to keep our blog updated and to be able to Skype with family while we are away for 6-8 weeks.

  • April E.

    My daughter’s laptop totally died last month. She really could use another one for her spanish and typing curriculum!

    My PC is on its last legs, so I would probably adopt the new one if I were to win.

  • Megan H

    What an awesome prize! We could totally use it for our homeschool as we don’t have one for the kids to use yet.

  • http://www.girlwithblog.com/ Anna R

    Oh my goodness. We have one computer for our family, and my entire job is done online. I manage social media for a ministry resource company, and coach congregations on social media use and practices. Our rusty old laptop (one of our only ‘Black Friday’ purchases) is dying a slow death – it doesn’t run unless it’s plugged in, taking away from the portable factor. We – I – could SO use a shiny new one!!!

    My mom really could use one!

    My husband just started school again and could def use this!

  • Amy Gildenzoph

    I would love to win this for my daughter, she loves math games!

  • Bobbi Beeson

    WooHoo! Way to make friends with the right people! Thanks for blessing someone. 🙂

  • Darrell

    My son who is 18 months old and SUPER smart. It would help him learn even more!

  • Elizabeth

    I would use it for crafting and (eventually) homeschooling!

  • Stacey

    I could use a laptop for school as lots of our curriculum (books) are on the app we use and we sit in my bedroom where our PC is to read. We don’t have a lap top and I’m sure there are others who need one more than us; however we’d be very thankful for it if we were given one. Thanks for the chance 🙂

  • Mary Blakely

    Would love to win this laptop. (My first comment looks like it didn’t go through.Hope I didn’t just “double comment”)

  • Leigh

    My laptop is on its last leg! I could really use a new one! Thanks for the fun opportunity!

  • Beth

    My husband in order to be able to work from home more.

  • Patricia W Hunter

    Oh, thank you Staples and Sarah Mae for this opportunity. My son and his wife could use a new computer. They have struggled financially for so long and are limping along on an old and barely functioning laptop. Does the “That was easy” button come with it, too? I’d love to drive my family crazy. =)

  • Lindsay S.

    What a generous give away from Staples. I could use a new one.

    My laptop has been rebuilt twice already and is totally crashing 10xs daily. this would definitely be for momma!!

  • Mary Hampton

    I could soooo use a new computer! I’ve been using a 5 year old netbook–which gives me the blue screen of death at least once a day since I downloaded my ISP’s anti-virus software. It’s hard to write a book (and do other projects) on a 10 inch screen with freezing problems! (And I love Staples. They totally hooked me up with the back to school necessities for my kiddos.)

    This would be great our computer is starting to wear out!

    Several of our boys are taking their classes online this year. It is becoming apparent that we need upgraded computers to handle the technology requirements. My eldest could most use it, as he goes off to college next year. Thanks!

SIGN ME UP! thanks =) (i’ll stop excitedly shouting now) =) katie

  • Kristi

    The laptop could actually be used by the whole family. Having an extra for my 4 school aged kids would be a help, as one just entered high school and will be needing use of one more. So, I can have mine back, or maybe I would use the new one and they could take over my current one. The battery goes low fast on mine right now, so winning one would be useful!

  • handfulofblessings

    How cool! Both of our laptops and the iPad were rendered inoperable this summer. We’d love to win one! What a blessing that would be!

  • http://www.chrismorriswrites.com/ Chris Morris

We do it all right now with 1 15+year old desktop computer and 1 Mac lapbook that only has the basics given to us by my almost 90yo gramma. This would be such a blessing. Thanks for the chance.

  • Lillian

    My daughter who just started 2nd grade homeschooling and we are doing this year virtual school online. She does not have a computer to use both my children have to use the same computer so it is very tough throughout the day, school is twice as long because they have to share. We are unable to buy one because our finances are very low. My husband lost his job and was not able to get unemployment so we had no income coming in for over 6 months and finally he got a job but not a high salary, so we are living paycheck to paycheck….it is rough. It would be an answer from God to be able to win this computer for our homeschool. Thank you for the opportunity.

  • Jennifer

    The whole family would use the laptop. With 4 kids, the one computer we have is always in demand!

  • Amy K.

    We could replace our desktop that has been acting up. The kids all share it to do some school on it. They do Spanish, typing and the littles like abc mouse.com

    Oh wow! Great giveaway! We could definitely use a laptop. We’ve been laptop-less for about 4 years… when my very pregnant belly decided to literally push mine out of my lap onto the floor. I tried to catch it…but that belly just kept pushing it away from me! Thereby breaking ours and rendering us laptop-less. Love your blog!

  • Eowyn

    Would love to win! A laptop would be so wonderful.

  • Jennifer Wiltrout

  • Jen B

    My kids. The oldest is in 9th grade, and highschool has become more demanding with the necessity of technology. We “de-teched” this summer – no TV, no Cable, no Internet (with the exception of my job), only one smart phone, and the old laptop no longer usable. I couldn’t have had a better summer with my family. Now that school has started again, we find ourselves in a frantic search for an affordable “New-to-us-but-works-like-new” laptop. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Susan C

    This would be great for my son. Thank you Staples!

Thanks for the opportunity to win! Blessings.

    I totally need a laptop for myself. Sent my oldest to his freshman year of college with a new laptop and a tablet both, but as you know – my needs are only met after my kids. 😉 I work from home and get tired of sitting in front of the desktop. I have a stand-up desk, but sadly no laptop. Winning would be so awesome for my health as I would be able to stand for some of my workday (my butt thanks you in advance)!

    I could use a laptop in our family. We are a one computer house and when my husband gets home, he takes over the computer so anything I need to get done happens in the middle of the day, it would be nice to be able to do the things I need at night after the kids are in bed so that I wasn’t taking those precious moments from them during the day.

  • Jennifer

    Ohhh Windows 8 you say…..

  • Cassie DeLapp

    My daughter and I could use a laptop to work on all kinds of things. Like printing out pictures for her to work on a life notebook. Our computer is ancient and slow and takes forever to do anything on so we rarely even turn it on. But I take lots of pics of her use doing life but never see, to get them printed out because of the slow poky computer. Thank you for this opportunity.

    Who could use it? Well, everyone naturally! However, it would be fantastic for my homeschooled 5th grade daughter… we have moved to the computer for both her math (Teaching Textbooks) as well as language (Rosetta Stone). A laptop to bring into a quiet room to work would be ideal! Thanks for the giveaway.

We have bought extra batteries and power plugs for it over time but it is dying on us.

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.

Mine has been banged around one too many times by persons who shall not be named 🙂 It’s on it’s last leg, but despite a power cord that must be inserted at a weird angle and the bottom corner of the keypad which cracked and is about to fall off, I’m trying to work every last mile out of it, lol!

  • Amy

    Our whole family uses the laptop. Thanks! I would read the books. 🙂

  • http://www.sharppaynes.com/ Tresta Payne

    We’re homeschooling 4 kids – 1 high school, 2 middle school, 1 in 3rd grade. It seems everyone *needs* the computer at the same time nowadays! Thank you Staples and Sarah Mae!

  • Monica4

    In a family with a high schooler and a middle schooler and two younger ones who keep trying to steal it…with only one laptop between us it is a struggle in timing to get papers and work accomplished!! We could really use another to help us out…..

  • Heather

    Um… Yes. Please. and Thank You.

  • http://www.celebratethegoodness.com/ Kristin @ CelebratetheGoodness

    My laptop is dead, so I mooch off my husband’s when I get the chance. Having a new one would allow me to pursue my dream of writing an ebook!

  • Stacey

    I saw this post, and I know I don’t comment over here very much but I knew exactly who needs this laptop. I’ll be giving it away as well if I do win. Thank you for the opportunity!

    I love contests!

    Would like to use this laptop to teach our daughter, who is homeschooling to properly TYPE instead of TEXTING being her first form of communication! And we could also use the webcam to keep up with family overseas.

  • Jill Massey Gattuso

    Thanks, Staples. 🙂

  • Melissa T

    We are desperate for a new computer. All of ours are over 10 years old. This would be a total blessing!!!

    My friend needs a new laptop–hers was stolen when her apartment was broken into earlier this spring. Scary!!!

  • Tracey M.

    The entire family could use a laptop. My hubby needs one for work. He works two jobs and we’d take turns using it. My daughter and I would like to use one while traveling for school work and my work. We would love to win it! I am also super excited about the collection of books Included in the giveaway too. I have been wanting to read Desperate since I first heard about it. Thank you for the chance!

  • C Reeves

    I could use a new laptop mine isn’t working 🙁

  • VeronicaS

    Hmm, should I be selfish and say it’d be for me, or should I let my husband have it?

  • Jennifer

    Wow! This would come in handy for my 3 homeschoolers and their online classes. Scheduling “computer time” has been tricky this year.

  • JF

    You are such an inspiration!

  • Jenny

    This would be SO helpful!!

  • Martha

    Me! The rest of my family took my laptop away from me. Between my hubby doing his online classes and my children hogging it, I never have any time with what used to be my laptop. I would love a new one anyway. The one I have is ancient in terms of technology.

  • Terry

    We would all use it!!!

  • Kathy J. McNiel

    I would give it to my sweet preacher hubby. His tablet just died (when he dropped in the rock garden during our family devotional!) and his laptop is not in great shape either, and he really uses them in his work.

  • Melissa Horton

    Oh what a wonderful giveaway!!! We are in need of all these things!

  • Eve

    would love to win a new laptop!:)

    How fun!! I need a laptop so I can build my new Etsy printables business wherever I am, esp as my girls are more involved in activities and starting preschool…and our computer is nearing the end of it’s life, and it’s is our TV as well (so I have to figure out how to share it while working on detailed things despite my daughters’ desire to sit on my lap, repeatedly elbow me in the stomach because they aren’t close enough and need to be 1″ closer to me, and lean on my mouse-controlling arm).

  • Mary Beth Elderton

    My daughter! She is a Sophomore/Junior at university and could really use a new computer.

  • Jennifer

    All of us 🙂

  • ashleyK

    My laptop has so many broken letter! (SEE?!) 😉 But seriously, the “s” & a few others require a serious t-TAP… a new one would be a homeschool mommy’s lifesaver 😀

  • Laurie Morton

    I could really use a new laptop. Every time I want to use mine, someone else in the house is already using it! Help!

  • tammy cordery

    my lovely daughter she has been on her old stationary computer that she got from me because I need a new one. I keep on telling her we will get her one but we haven’t the money. she says that’s okay.

  • julianneh

    I could really use a laptop!

  • Cecilia

    We have a large family and one computer, so it would come in handy for lots of things, such as typing, or Spanish, or looking up ants, when someone else is on the other computer. 🙂

  • Susan

    I would love to have a new laptop! My computer died about a year ago and I had to get a laptop from my granddaughter! If I won this one I could give hers back!

They say..Silence is Golden. .but Duct tape is Silver! Btw..your daughter makes that backpack look ..AMAZING! Cheers to you and to Staples!

  • LynnE

    This would be awesome! We are still using our very first laptop that we bought in 06 and to use it now, you can’t open it all the way or the screen will mess up so we have to sit it on stacked books to see it while we do our school work.

  • Alana

    Everyone in our home could use this laptop, our desktop died the first day of school

I have been without one for almost a year and have been researching affordable quality laptops for the last month or so. I would love to be able to start on the path I’m feeling called to with my writing with this laptop and my 6 year old probably wouldn’t mind having one around the house again too 🙂 It would be such a tremedous help with homework as well! 🙂 EEE! Possibilities! I no longer have social media so I’m going to go pray for favor for my one little entry. heehee 😉 Fingers crossed!

Thanks for the chance!

That would be me! 🙂 I got mine (refurbished) about 5 years ago, and now… Well, let’s just say it doesn’t play videos anymore, I can’t load Farmville (not that I ever played that *cough cough*), and sometimes even Pinterest has issues. It would be SO nice to see the world on a nice new laptop (especially after the kids just saved up to buy *themselves* a new computer, and I don’t really have access to it *grump*). 🙂

  • Heather

    This is such good timing! My son is on the autism spectrum and his doctors have advised that using a computer to do his schoolwork would be incredibly helpful for him. But I can’t afford to go out and buy one for him. I am a single parent and I’m trying to home school him and his sister. One computer is just not enough for everyone to use effectively. Winning this would be an incredible blessing for my family – thank you for the opportunity!

    Fun! We would love this!

  • SDMommy

    Woo-hoo! I am on the market for a new laptop but totally don’t have the money for one yet. Hubs and I are really committed to paying off debt so a laptop purchase just isn’t in our near future. In the future, mine is physically falling apart and randomly shuts itself down sometimes. Not good. I use the computer for business and personal, and it’s the only one I have, so if it dies I am in trouble. A new laptop would be a huge blessing to our household. Thanks!

  • Annie

    We could use a new laptop at our house… we are starting to see the dreaded “blue screen of death!”

    I definitely could use this. I have three teens in the house and they all have some portion of their school work on the computer.

  • Mayank Bhasin

    Well to be honest, I certainly need a laptop as I am now moving up to the professional gaming scene, and what I need is a good laptop that can handle games without any lag, and as everybody knows, Toshiba has been one of the leading Laptop giants so winning this one would certainly serve as a big help for me.

  • Laurajj Jacobson

    Oh I would love one! I have an old desktop and have such problems trying to print coupons to help us save some money. I would love a laptop that I could move around and Carter could use to work on his learning!

  • Melissa Moore

  • Barbara Keding

    My hubs could use a new laptop for his work! thanks for the giveaway!

    I would love for my kids to have this laptop for homeschool.

  • Margaret

  • Kimberly

    God has led us to bring our 8th grade daughter home for schooling this year. She’s a prolific writer and is doing her best to save for a laptop of her own. She’s our eldest child and out of all 5 of our kids, she’s our only girl! I would love to be able to surprise our beautiful daughter with her very own laptop. Seriously, what a gift that would be to all of us!

  • Julie

    This looks great! We really could use a new laptop!

  • Joy Geek

    My Mom could really use a laptop, because she runs our multiple family ventures, on our old family computer.

  • Cheryl

    Yes please! I would actually donate this to my child’s teacher – our small school can’t afford to keep up with technology. 🙂

  • http://prairiefrogs.wordpress.com/ Dell T

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • http://beautifulinhistime.com/ Aprille {beautifulinhistime.co

    So I know I barely have a shot at winning with so many entries, but just this morning I was thinking about Allume and how I want to take my laptop – but we only have one computer and it would leave my husband computerless (read: bored out of his freaking mind) for four days. And so I’m sitting there at breakfast reading comments in the Allume newbies group about how some gals have gotten new laptops in time for the conference, and I may have whispered a silent prayer something like “God, it would be so cool if someone would give me a free laptop.”

    So, maybe it’s coincidence, maybe it’s God – or maybe it’s nothing and I won’t win. But if I did…


  • Mitzi

    We need a laptop desperately! We are operating with one computer for 2 college students, 1 high school senior, and one nine year old who loves computer games!! I would love to win this for our family!

  • Danielle Rogers

    Would love to have a laptop for ‘blog work’.

  • Kim Hansen

    My husband sure could use a new laptop! Would it be selfish to take the winnings and give him my laptop instead?!

  • marlen816

    What a blessing it would be to have a new laptop! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

  • http://realinginlife.com/ Cheryl Simpson

    I just got back to homeschooling this year. We have two faltering computers for school. One of them decided to stop working–yesterday. It is stuck in “repairing” mode. So, it would be great to get something that would work.

  • Karen

    My oldest is writing a novel and would love this!

  • LLMom

    I could (babies have ripped buttons off mine) use a new laptop but would probably save it for when my younger ones are older.

  • Brenda Todd

    This would be wonderful for my granddaughter. She has an ancient, very slow computer now and becomes so frustrated she doesn’t use it. She is missing out on many learning opportunities that would help her move ahead in class work. I just found your blog and love it!

  • Debbie

    Super excited! We need a laptop for homeschool!

  • Noelle Cagle

    My hubby who still has 2.5 years of school left for THIS degree…. who knows how many for his next two… =)

  • Jessica

    My kids desperately need one for their online schoolwork, and my husband could use one for college so…pretty much everyone in our house could use a laptop. Ha!

  • Heidi

    We would probably end up sharing the laptop!! My kids would probably use it more than me! 🙂

  • acombs

    My whole family could benefit from a laptop. With homeschooling and other activities we do, it sure would make a lot things easier!

  • Whitney

    I would actually like to win the books more than the laptop.

  • John Hirst

    It would be exciting to win a laptop that my family could use. The possibilities of education, exploration, creating, and just relaxation are endless. We do have a laptop that is showing it’s age, and a desktop filled with cobwebs and cat and dog hairs. It would be received into a good home that would take care of it for a long time.

  • Beth Wlliams

    I would love to win a laptop. That would give hubby a laptop along with myself. I truly think it is super nice of staples to give away all these items. My laptop is aging some, I use it all the time!

  • Elizabeth

    Wow! Would love to win one! 🙂 Would definitely use it in our homeschool!

  • Ally

  • Dianna Raquel Hudson

    Yes, Please! I’m a home schooled 14 year old girl. My mother always very kindly lets me use her laptop but unfortunately that means she often doesn’t get to use it often. A laptop would be amazing!

    My kids just earned some extra money to each get a google nexus 7 tablet so I would let their “teacher” have this one! 😉

  • Melissa

    Would love to win this! Could definitely be put to use in our homeschool!!!

  • Amy

    Would love to win this, thanks so much for your generosity! My whole family would use this!

  • Betty’s Blog

    Oh it would be great to have a laptop! Our youngest son has told us for years that is what we need to get but it just has not worked out in our budget. So, yes, I would love to win one! So thankful to have found your website. It has blessed me greatly already.

I’d love to go to a blogging conference nearby–even California would be great if it wasn’t too crowded (ha, ha).

    I could really use a new laptop! Mine quit working over a year ago.

  • Abbe

    This would go to my husband! He currently is the Director of Children’s ministry at our church and his computer is awful…no enter key, takes 20 minutes to turn on and shut down, and he is so patient with the whole situation. Would love to take that stress off of him 🙂

    We are missionaries overseas and after a difficult year in national school, we feel we need to give our oldest daughter a different option. We are leaning towards online schooling and need to purchase a laptop for her – so she’s the one if we were to win. Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  • Whitney C

    I could definitely use a laptop that doesn’t have keys about to break off.

  • TanyaThom

    Oh what a HUGE blessing this would be!! We have been surviving on our 2006 PC for a long time, and to say it is on its ‘last leg’ would be an understatement to say the least! 😉 It runs like dial-up, and freezes up all the time. Not bad considering its outdated age, but I pray all the time that it will hang on until we can budget a new one… this would be a true answer to prayer! And BONUS, the ebooks would be amazing!! :)) Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Valerie Almquist

    I would love to win! Thanks!

  • Janine

    We’d all share!

  • Megan

    So cool! Would love this!

  • Becky Bierbrodt

    I could use a new laptop as I’m currently going back to school via online courses through our local community college. Our current laptop we have had for nearly 6 years and it is beginning to fall apart, literally. The CD compartment literally slides out if you bump it in just the wrong way!

  • jennifer

    I would love the laptop for my son! He is so good with computers, I would love him to have one of his own

    My teenage son could definitely use a laptop. He’d be thrilled. Thanks.

  • April Dangerfield

    Both of my kids could really use a laptop. The one we had is old and finally gave up the ghost after nearly 7 years of heavy use.

  • Jerry Guerra

    I can use the laptop for myself because I come from a low income family as well as being the first generation to attend college and pursue my education at a higher level. I am currently attending Washington State University and would appreciate the award of a new laptop because I have worked had to get where I’m at now with the very little that I have. #ThanksStaples ! (:

  • Rose Nilson

    my church could use one to help out with their services especially for powerpoint. I am the youth leader as well as a full time college student. There is a lot to do to help out the community and providing meals five nights a week does not give much room for extra money to buy a computer.

  • Christine

    Our homeschool program does not have enough laptops for their enrichment classes, so I would love to have one to bring to classes so more kids could enjoy it! My kids would love to use it as well during the off days.

    My kids would so love to have this for our homeschool.

  • Jennifer

    A laptop would be wonderful for our family as well! With my own laptop being equivalent to a dinosaur…I think being able to do what I need to do would benefit our family most. Of course that means the 3 boys would also have access for their stuff as well. 🙂

  • Kim Monaco

    I could totally use a laptop computer, but I’d actually gift it to my almost 16 yr old – early birthday gift, maybe.
