    1. What a great way to build buss then to give away from free product. When people get free gear, they tell all!! I love this!!!

      I would use the M90z for me so I can give the kiddies my old PC for homework. I can't have them bothering me and taking up my good social media time just to do homework..now can I?

    2. I'd use it to organize/make presentations for my chief residency year; also, it would free up my old computer so that our household can finally have two (somewhat) working computers!

    3. I would use it to improve my medical transcription and I love the fact that Shelancers have tweeted this and that is a great recommendation for me.

      I would look forward to creating fantastic presentations as well showing the benefits of using facebook to share medical technological terminology and associated resources.

      My name is Tiffany Trevenen and I work for Moffat County Public Schools on Colorado's beautiful western slope.
      Five PC's become a collaborative pod in our classroom to allow us to interact globally with our friends on the Isle of Mann, in Canada, Australia, and the East Coast while using Google Earth to learn about the world beyond our town borders.
      Thanks for the chance!

    7. Thanks for providing us with an opportunity to win the M90z!

      I own my own company and have been using an HP computer that is almost 10 years old (it definitely qualifies as a dinosaur). I have been good about "reviving" this computer, but was recently told by my technician that I need to let the computer die and buy a new one (he's told me this in the past but he was definitely more stern this time-LOL). Therefore, if I were to win the M90z I would definitely use it for business purposes such as preparing presentations, interacting with clients, etc.

      I would LOVE to win this computer and save myself the expense of having to buy a new computer.

      Thanks!

    9. Laura Kennedy - I would take the M90z down to our local Veteran Services Office to replace their dinosaur so that we could influence them to use new media techniques to better connect with our local veterans and their families.

      Awesome promotion and I know that the winner will be very appreciative regardless of whom they are!!!

      A brief explanation about how you'd like to use the M90z. I'd like to use the M90z to wind down after a long day at work (I work as a clerk at a home health agency here in Las Vegas). I would also like to brush up on my graphic design skills some day.

    16. Thank you for the opportunity to win a M90z. I'm Kim Deck Grant. Our household computers are aging fast! The software we want to use has quickly out-paced our computers' abilities. Even the kids' homework software could us a boosted platform. So, we'd use it so the family could still surf and be productive!

      I would use this computer for my 14 year old son who lost his vision due to a brain tumor. He has trouble manipulating a mouse to the correct position, and would find a touch screen much easier to use. He is a straight A student with lofty goals, this computer would help him reach.

      I would like to nominate Donna Penny, head of the South Coast ESD Vision Department to receive the set of 5 computers for her students. Their funding is severely limited and they must pick and choose what equipment to buy the children. Touch screen computers would be a dream come true for them, as many of the visually impaired students cannot manipulate a mouse and are all using outdated computers now.

    19. Regenstrief is a not-for-profit medical informatics research organization. We have the largest health information exchange in the country (55% of all US HIE data exchange traffic is ours) with 30+ member hospitals.

      We write order entry software (among other things) for clinicians for our local community hospital network. "Touch" is a great interface for clinicians, but proving the benefit is difficult without the hardware. Having 5 machines would allow for engineers to develop the solution as well as have machines for the pilot.

    20. Hello!
      My name is Sue Maurer MD. I am a disabled MD on the ticket to work program who owns a home care agency, but thanks to the postings by Dr. Kim on the non-clinical web site for docs, I have an interview lined up with EHR and a chance to become a physician advisor via the internet at home for 24 hours a week. This will allow me to use my medical knowledge and make me feel more like a doctor again! I would use this really cool puter to replace my old one and increase my chance for success as an EHR physician advisor. Yeah for Dr. Kim!

      I would love to win the M90z. I have three kids (with one on the way) and the computer in my den is responsible for managing all of our family's digital content (photos, music, video). My current desktop is on its last legs and replacing it with a touch screen would make computer time quicker to boot!

    29. My name is Steven Yagozinski and I would like to nominate St. Marys Prep, a nonprofit K-8 school for the five M90z computers. As a volunteer member of the school's Technology Committee I know the five M90z computers would go a long way to enhancing our children's education experience.

      We have been working on upgrading the technology in the school. One of the projects is to update the library to a media center. The M90z would be perfect in that role, especially having the touchscreen present to allow even the preschool students to quickly and easily access the video and electronic book content.

    37. My name is "Gaurav Rajasekar" , yes that's the name on my facebook account too and I'm following ALL the facebook pages you mentioned.

      I would use it for my Dad to store his medical records and medical software. He's a doctor and he finds it useful to have his own PC to install medical software onto that he can then use to explain to people what procedures will need to be done and why on some specific part of the body. And I can bet that would greatly be enhanced by a professional looking PC with a large screeb on his desk. It would also be useful for maintaining accounts and the odd bit of video and music on it.

    38. I would use this to replace the behemoth I currently use.

Frankly, I'm growing tired of it's senile ramblings, I'm ready for a healthier and fresher member of it's technological offspring...preferably one that won't need a number of surgical operations for the next few years.

      My choice is Conrad Schools of Science. My name is Lisa Carr.
      Conrad Schools of Science is a Red Clay Consolidated District Magnet School program designed to serve students from sixth through twelfth grade. The concept for the Schools of Science grew out of Red Clay’s vision of a school that offers a rigorous curriculum focused on the areas of biotechnology and allied health.
      The goal of the school is to prepare students for the workplace or for higher education at the college level. The curricular strands (Biotechnology & Allied Health) were chosen based on data derived from the Delaware Department of Labor Occupation and Industry Projections and the Delaware business community. Students attending Conrad will have the opportunity to earn college credit as part of their high school experience.

      We would use the Touchscreens to track student competencies as they participate in lab and discussion sessions -- part of the AVMA Council of Education requirements for Accreditation. This, in place of students running around with a paper notebook asking for their instructors to sign off on their required competencies.

      Both the MA's and the Physicians/Providers would use these Touchscreens in each of our exam rooms to enter patient info in the EHR. This means we will not have to lug laptops from one room to the next.

      As an extra, these are a work of art!
