    as long as they dont actively censor or punish people expressing anti-china opinions or sentiments i dont see the harm, im pretty sure everyone here on gbatemp are currently using something made in china, i doubt anyone is going to the shops and saying "hmmmm nope i don't need that because it was made in china" (let face it, you would pretty much have to abandon any hopes of owning anything technical) its enough to just not bow to the demands for censorship, not to respond to censorship with more censorship

    Anyways: let try keep things on topic, the laptops look pretty cool, hopefully the codes go to someone who will use them :) good luck interested parties

    You can't avoid china. Either you move on avoiding the companies with shitty practices or you stop using all electronics right now which surely no one wants.

    This is just a company based in China, it doesn't necessarily mean that you're supporting the government's decisions.

    Seems like anything China related, Blizzard will be also be heard. Now I would like to enter the giveaway, but :D even with the coupons, the devices are still expensive in my currency. Good luck (hopefully someone enters) to everyone.

    Like I said to @linuxares, If I had a bit more money to spare I would've insta bought the cheapest laptop they have with the coupons.
    Anything they have is way fucking better then what I currently have!

    This giveaway has very bad timing, and it's just coupons as well. I guess there may be some who would still want them, there always is apparently. But before it's too late, I suggest everyone not to turn this into a political thread, it's on the front page and let's not make GBAtemp that.

    Sorry to be pessimist, but why do they give Gbatemp these coupons? I mean sure free advertisement is free advertisement, but do you really want to be intermingling with a site that's favorite pass time is hacking, or bickering about hacking. Emulation handhelds I can see being fine with this site, but Win10 Laptops? Is it just me? It's great that you guys got people who want to advertise, and I don't mean to downplay this, it's just, seems a lil weird. Is it just me?

    Do these coupons have an expiration date?
    I'm inclined towards the 2 in 1, since it's useful for work related things for me, but at the moment I really can't afford anything.


    Nintendo seems to send review codes to the temp, the temp also has a presence in several gaming events. Most members of the forum don't do any hacking anyway.
    What's wrong with Window 10 laptops? Most people need to use windows, whether they like it or not.

    Emphasis on the word you used "favourite". This site's slogan was once something along the lines of "Underground Hacking Community" iirc, now it's "Independent Gaming Community". Laptops/PC's are closely related to that, so yeah. I don't see it as weird, at least since the news shift on the front page, it's not all about hacking now.

    With the amount of sway that the Chinese government has in its businesses, supporting Chinese businesses is effectively supporting the Chinese government. Increasing the market share of Chinese companies increases Chinese soft influence and the government knows this. Avoiding Chinese made products is basically impossible, but avoiding Chinese designed products is currently much easier. That doesn't mean that buying Chinese products means that you agree with their government, but it absolutely does bolster it. If economically interacting with the companies of a country didn't bolster it, then sanctions wouldn't exist. I'm sure there exist people who try to avoid doing business with US companies for similar reasons. They know that by doing business with them, they're indirectly aiding the U.S. government.

    The words "coupon" and "giveaway" must never exist in the same sentence.
