Did you somehow forget to buy a laptop for college? Did you somehow forget to buy a backpack? Did you somehow forget to find an apartment? Well, we’re furnishing one lucky student with one brand new notebook, a kickass Timbuk2 bookbag and a… second brand new notebook, which will make up for you not having a home. All you have to do is be a dilligent Twitter follower for the next few days.

The Package

The notebooks are a “companion” set, meant to work well for a student geeky enough to have two separate computers: a netbook for taking notes, a larger notebook for heavier tasks and a bag that holds both. Reviews on both units to come in the next few days.
