mbagiveaway   Celebrate Our 100,000 Facebook Fans With Us And Win A Free MacBook AirWe’re closing in on gathering 100,000 fans on Facebook and to celebrate the achievement, we’ll be giving away a free MacBook Air! Once we have 100,000 fans, we’ll randomly select one MakeUseOf reader as the winner!

It can’t be that simple, can it?

UPDATE: The winner has been picked. Congratulations, Taylor Rapids!

Of course it can. Besides liking our Facebook page, you could help us to spread the word about the $999 MacBook Air giveaway. Naturally, the faster we get 100,000 fans, the faster a winner is chosen. So it wouldn’t hurt to tell your friends and family about the giveaway and suggest that they should join our Facebook page as well.

Send out a status update on Facebook, send them an email, tweet this post — you can do just about anything to spread the word and help us reach the 100K mark.

Let’s see what we’re giving away.

Up for grabs is a $999 eleven inch MacBook Air with a 1.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2 GB of memory, 64 GB of flash storage and a NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics card. The MacBook Air also comes with a 5-hour battery which can stay on standby for up to 30 days on a single charge. By sporting Flash storage, it turns on and off instantly. The 11″ MacBook Air is also equipped with a multi-touch glass trackpad, 2 USB 2.0 ports, one MiniDisplay port, AirPort Extreme Wi-Fi wireless networking which is IEEE 802.11 a/b/g compatible; and it weighs just 2.3 pounds.

@Jackson, what exactly do you have to do? just be a fan on Facebook (I already am btw)?


Yeap. Just be a fan. You could spread the word but that’s not a requirement. It’s just the faster we reach 100K, the earlier we pick a winner.

@Makeuseof is awesome


So, sell my Facebook soul and info for a laptop…pass.

Facebook and competitions – yes, you probably violates guidelines

Everyone has the desire to have some form of competition on Facebook, we really want to reward our fans, get more of them, get into great pictures, nice stories, give away a great prize. This is my interpretation of the rules: Unless you have written permission from Facebook and will hold the competition in a proprietary third-party application then it is not allowed.

“You will not offer any contest, giveaway, or sweepstakes (“promotion”) on Facebook without our prior written consent. If we consent, you take full responsibility for the promotion, and will follow our Promotions Guidelines and all applicable laws.”

Hafiz Kalandar

Let’s say I will get it… :)

Lord I would be in heaven I am terminally ill housebound on oxygen. The oxygen is 500 dollars a month, I take, no kidding over 30 pills a day since I was in my 30s to stay alive. I call it existing no oh poor me but no disability and my illness has eaten away our money and even to charge a computer, I’d feel so guilty, and when they say day to day,ouch This would be heaven after this piece of garbage which won’t even type right I see, would be heaven on earth! What a NICE giveaway Blessings.


BTW is there something you can do when you click something and have to wait 2 minutes for whatever you are trying to do, or even type faster? I’ve reformatted etc, disk checked, I can’t find anything wrong. It SHOULD work, oh and yes I’ve checked for viruses etc. Thanks Donna
