Influencing the influencers?

Microsoft has given out free Acer Ferrari-styled PCs to a number of tech bloggers. Long Zheng blogs about the giveaways. The discussion thread following Zheng's blog works over the issue of influence and these valuable gifts.

Apparently, two models were selected for the Microsoft giveaway: the Ferrari 1000 and the Acer Ferrari 5000. The prices: the 1000 lists under $2,000, while the 5000 lists under $2,400.
