Microsoft giving free acer ferrari notebooks to bloggers to review Microsoft Windows Vista operating system.
Acer ferrari 1000/500 notebook computer use - the Ferrari sports a space-age carbon-fiber cover, the same material used by Ferrari to build its prize-winning Formula One race cars. This notebook PC comes with AMD Turion processor and other high end specs.
This is not new marketing promotion, most hardware review site always get such goodies for free. But this is first time Microsoft giving goodies to bloggers.
I am not complaining anything here (Hey I have much powerful notebook PC and I do work on 2-8 way SMP servers almost everyday). I think it is a good marketing idea. Personally I would like to read a review that compare both Linux and Windows Vista side by side.
However this raises some questions such as - Integrity of bloggers. What do you think?
Update: Nokia is giving out expensive cell phones to bloggers just like Microsoft gave notebooks.
