We understand it's a tough economy. Not everyone can afford to buy the latest and greatest. For the holidays, AMD, maker of computer processors and chips, is giving away a laptop to one of our readers. The HP Pavilion dm1z is a 11.6-inch laptop that always keeps its cool, running 9.6 degrees cooler than body temperature for eight hours on a single charge. While the laptop weighs in at a mere 3.52 pounds, it boasts big sound with integration of Beats audio. Here's how to participate in the giveaway: Tweet @AMDNotebook and let us know why you want this laptop, including the hastag #discoverygiveaway. We'll cut the contest off at Wednesday, Dec. 22, 5 p.m. PST, and I'll update this post with the winner's tweet. Also, while you're at it, keep up with Discovery, AMD and me on Twitter.
Update: And the winner is @emmalow, of San Francisco. AMD has selected her as the #discoverygiveaway winner. Emma tells me her only computer is her MacBook from freshman year of college - seven years old at this point - and primarily works from her iPad these days. Below is her winning tweet.
