Morristown, New Jersey (PRWEB) August 21, 2009
In what promises to be its most exciting National video competition yet, Acer is inviting consumers to illustrate, through their own original short film entries, what they'd do with the creativity, versatility and freedom the new Acer Aspire Timeline Notebook gives them with its unparalleled eight-plus hours of power from a single charge.
What makes Acer's newest video competition even more enticing than the one it so successfully launched in 2008 mainly the fact that there will be two phases of this contest in which entrants are eligible to win fabulous prizes, including a trip for two to Las Vegas to attend CES, the hottest electronics show on earth and much more.
The winner of the First Phase of Acer's Eight-Hour Video Contest will receive a trip for two to Las Vegas during the CES show, three nights at one of Las Vegas's top luxury hotel, Lucian Piccard designer watch, $1,000 in spending money and an Acer Aspire Timeline laptop.
But, as they say, that's not all. Because everyone who enters--including the First Prize Winner of the First Phase--will then be eligible for the Second Phase of the contest, in which winners will be judged in categories including Most Viewed on YouTube; Most Promoted; Most Viewer Comments; and Most Favorites. The overall winner (first phase winner), will be based on which video receives the highest ratings based on all categories total responses. Each category winner will also receive major prizes, including Acer Aspire Timeline laptops, X-Box 360, Xbox Games and 120Gig Zune MP3 Players, along with additional cash awards.
The judges of the Acer's Phase Two contest will be the Internet audience, the same audience which was so wildly receptive of Acer's 2008 Video Contest promoting its incredibly popular - and affordable - Aspire One netbooks.

Now, as Acer launches the Aspire Timeline Notebook, the slim (less than one inch thick), coolest (an actual five degrees cooler than any other notebook available), and most liberating (with its eight-plus hours of battery life), it can't wait to see the creative, innovative and amazing ways in which the contestants will demonstrate the versatility of their newest notebook in 2009, and which videos the public chooses to win.
