      As a hardworking student trying to come by, it's really hard to save up enough money for any kind of laptop, especially if you really need one. Honestly, It's quite difficult to keep up with all the research and work one needs to be doing without a computer in this day and age. It would immensely help out with my studies and it would mean a lot to me as well :) Thanks BD for the chance :) Hope I get lucky.

      I transform lives by making a difference using books, conversations and technology with students everyday. Using a Mac Air would allow me to move beyond boundaries in imagination and creativity in achieving my goals for 2014.

      I already own a Mac Pro, sure another Mac computer would be nice especially a laptop, but the Mac I'm currently using is Bleepin awesome! I therefore won't hesitate should I be the fortuitous contestant, to donate the winning prize to a local charitable organisation. They're darn fine computers. Good luck everyone & cheers BD!!!
