Sometimes we wish HP would just give us all the gear for us to keep.Hello everybody! So we’re really excited to be working Hewlett Packard and the NBA in promoting HP’s newest student-friendly laptop, the HP dv2.

To kick things off, HP and the NBA are running 2 contests.

The first contest is a doozy, the winner will get to travel with the Kevin Garnett as he plays a game at home in Boston and on the West coast. Oh, and some goodies from HP. You can sign up for that one by entering at a landing page that they’ve set up:

The second contest is exclusive only to the HackCollege loyal and other blog readers. You’ve got the possibility of winning either

  • A signed basketball by an active player of your choosing
  • OR a trip to the 2010 NBA All Star game with one of the HackCollege staff

To win this second one, you just have to spam your friends on Twitter. (That link will fill out a pre-made tweet with some default text.) To be entered, all you have to do is mention @HackCollege, @NBA and HP in a tweet. We’ll randomly select a winner from our Twittarmy.

Thanks for entering and this is only part one of this promotion… stay tuned for more.
