RANDOM WINNERS: Jamie (Blonde Mom Blog) who left a comment on Unconditional Mom | Andrea H (Moody Mama Says) who left a comment on Pegs Play | Lydia who left a comment on Maria's Space
We’re all busy moms. Balancing kids, work, blogs and a social life can make for a hectic existence. HP and five-time Olympian Dara Torres want you to imagine how an HP Mini with Windows® 7 Starter could simplify your everyday tasks, work the way you want, and make new things possible.

Check out the videos of Dara below for inspiration. She uses the 3.22 lb HP Mini 311 with its full-size keyboard and 11.6” HD screen to balance a grueling training schedule with her family life and work on her upcoming fitness book. She also uses Windows® 7 features like Jumplists, Shake, Snap, and Pin to help her manage all her digital content.

Want to win a HP Mini of your own? Blog about how you’d use one to smooth the bumps in your crazy day and then tweet the link using the hashtags #HP and #Win7. The three most creative entries will win a Tord Mini of their own.

There is also a chance for your readers to win prizes. See below for more detailed information. Learn more about HP Minis and Windows 7. Also, check out product reviews from Christine Koh of Boston Mamas and Felicia Carter from Go Graham Go.

To be a "Simplify My Life" winner, write a blog post about how an HP Mini 110 with Windows 7 will simplify your life.

Encourage your readers to write a comment on your post because we will randomly give away three (3) HP Mini 110-1100 by Studio Tord Boontje PCs to readers who leave a comment on entrants' sweepstakes posts.

Your post must be a minimum of 150 words and a maximum of 1,000 words, and must include at least two of the provided images or embed one of the Dara Torres videos above.

Your post must be announced on Twitter with the hashtags #HP and #Win7. That’s how we’ll know you have entered.

By participating in the promotion, you certify that no intellectual property rights were violated, with the exception of verbatim inclusion of the provided messaging, photos, or video. All content must be owned by you.

Only one entry per blog.

You must be a member of the Mom Bloggers Club, at least 18 years of age, and a resident of the US or Canada to enter.

Deadline for entries is January 20, 2010 at midnight ET.

Entries will be judged by an esteemed panel of four judges starting on January 21. The grand prize winner will be announced on Friday, January 29, 2010.

Reader winners will be randomly drawn using and will be based on the order in which bloggers enter the sweepstakes and post on Twitter. Winners will be announced on Friday, January 29, 2010.

Christine Koh

I’ve heard a lot about netbooks this year, but hearsay has been the limit of my exposure. A netbook could provide a budget-friendly central solution for those who simply need writing and internet tools, or offer someone like me a compact way to blog and surf remotely while not needing to haul around my life’s work. The Mini 110 also appeals to my design sensibilities (via modern nature inspired motifs) and my commitment to eco-living (via a mercury-free LED backlit display for increased energy efficiency, as well as packaging and user guides made from recycled materials and printed with soy based inks). Read more.
Felicia Carter

First of all, this netbook is unlike any other you have seen. Because it was designed by Studio Tord Boontje, it has a one of a kind design that features 3D endangered animals overlaying a gorgeous flower and lace design. It is actually a brand new process called "HP Imprint 3D." Even certain visual settings contain the design ("loading bar," screen saver, wallpaper, and more). You can find Tord Boontje's work from the museums in London to your local Target store, bringing sophisticated art work into the average consumers home. Green mamas will love the fact that this computer has a 10.1 inch mercury free LED backlit display for increased efficiency. Read more.
