The meetup is only four days away — and we’re getting excited. We can’t tell you all of the reasons why we’re jazzed, but we can tell you that we’ve got four of the coolest sponsors in Web Television helping us to make the meetup a night to remember. Not only are they throwing their support behind the content community, but they’re also giving away tons of really cool stuff! So, acquaint yourself with the sponsors who are making all of this possible, find out more about the cool stuff you could could walk away with at the end of the night, and discover a little more about our mystery Monday announcement:
1. AMD Vision — See, Share, Create.
- HP Pavillion dv2z Notebook, an AMD-powered ultra portable notebook PC weighing just 3 lbs. 13 oz. and sporting AMD’s Neo dual core mobile processor.
- ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card
Not only will AMD be onsite to demo brand new computing technologies that you have to see to believe, they are also giving away notebook computers and their newly released high-end ATI graphics cards. Remember to check for VISION technology from AMD before purchasing a new computer to ensure that you’re getting the PC that best meets your needs by being optimized for video, digital media and content creation. Satisfy your curiosity: amd.com/VISION or @AMD_Unprocessed.
