Enter to Win a $400 Newegg Card or Eee PC

Which Internet browser you use is a personal choice. Some people use one just because it best supports the websites that he or she frequents most often, while others just use whatever most convenient to hover over and click.

Earlier this month we started a contest together with Newegg that required entrants to download and try Internet Explorer 8 for a chance to win a $400 Newegg gift card or an Asus Eee PC valued at $429.99.

Today we’re proud to announce our first winner: Greg Grotyohann from Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, who selected an Eee PC for his prize.

Fear not, the contest is still going! Just to be clear, you don’t have to be an Internet Explorer 8 user to enter or win, but you do have to give it a shot. Visit the contest page by clicking here and the rest easy. We’d advise interested parties to get their entries in quick. The contest is only open to 10,000 people and will operate on a first come, first served basis. 

So what are you waiting for? CLICK HERE to enter!

The fine print:

As with all contests, there are rules: The Giveaway is open only to legal residents of the 50 United States and District of Columbia ("U.S.") who are 18 years of age or older as of date of entry, possess a valid U.S. driver’s license, and can provide proof of legal residency ("Entrant"). The closing date for entries is 11:59 PM Eastern Time on June 30th, 2009. Only ONE entry per person will be considered a valid entry. For a full list of contest rules, we encourage you to click HERE.

You must download Internet Explorer 8 to be eligible for the contest. If you entered the contest but did not download IE8, you can download it here. There is no need to re-enter the contest.
