Happy Birthday TMA! – Dell XPS 13 Giveaway
The TMA Dell XPS 13 Giveaway
In honour of our 100th post on Too Many Adapters, we’re celebrating with a contest. We’re giving away a Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook stuffed with a Core i5, 128GB SSD, 4GB DDR3 memory. You can read more about this notebook (Part 1 / Part 2) that we gave a score of 8/10 and recommended for travelers.
In case you’re new to TMA, we talk about Technology for Travelers. So that iPhone or Android smartphone sitting beside that laptop you’re typing on. That GPS that helps you with your geocaching hobby. The iPad or tablet you’re packing on weekend trips. Those apps you can’t travel without. The camera gear you so badly want to buy but haven’t yet…
We’re the guys to keep you in the know, (and justify buying it when it’s awesome)
We also like to keep it light with opinion pieces where we cut through the fluff marketing, and BS practices in the tech and travel industries.
So Here’s the Deal
We’re holding this contest through Rafflecopter, which will randomly select the winner(s) from the entries we receive before the contest closes on Aug 10th. You can increase your chances of winning with multiple entries, and some creativity.

1. The most creative tweet (decided by the brilliant staff at TMA) will receive 15 bonus entries. The Tweet must include the hashtag “#XPS” & a link to this page. Use our handy button below and insert your own creativity.
2. Send us a photo of your best sad face beside your big/heavy/slow/broken laptop. The sadder the better. You can enter one photo (uploaded to the TMA Facebook page), and you’ll receive 5 bonus entries. Note: we may post your photo on the TMA website
We will add the bonus entries for you before the final drawing
