As part of its campaign in which it's trying to prove that Windows PCs are cheaper than Macintoshes, Microsoft is teaming up with Nova FM to giveaway AU$1300 a day for people to buy a Windows laptop.
Quite savvy, really, when the cheapest MacBook comes in at AU$1599. Arguments aside on included value of software and OS religious wars, your chance to win the cash is there — in typical radio competition style.
You'll need to find the "Laptop Hunter" (or "Fugitive", or "Deep Throat", or "Suspect" or whatever else the horribly unimaginative re-branded radio competition is this month) in Melbourne, Brisbane or Sydney CBDs in order to claim your cash, and then be taken on a PC buying frenzy.
The competition starts today in Melbourne and Sydney and runs until Friday 12 June, whereas Brisbanites will need to wait until 16-20 June for their go. Listen in to Nova breakfast at around 8.30am for clues on how to find the perp who could be holding your cash.
