Do you think you have what it takes to be a hero in just 10 seconds? Or do you know one? Lenovo wants to know! Starting today, Lenovo, in conjunction with Microsoft Corporation, is launching the EExtraordinary 10-Second Hero Contest in recognition of its Enhanced Experience 2.0 (EE 2.0) for Windows 7 program, which allows select Lenovo PCs to boot up in as little as 10 seconds. The contest calls on “doers” in countries around the world to submit 150 words explaining a good deed they or an organization they know of accomplished in 10 seconds. Lenovo will award $50,000 to a charity of choice based upon the person or organization who made the most significant impact in the same amount of time it takes to boot up a Lenovo PC with Enhanced Experience 2.0.
“At Lenovo, we understand every second can have a big impact on our customers, which is why we created Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience 2.0 for Windows 7. Our proprietary RapidBoot technology allows Lenovo PCs to boot up 20 seconds faster than any other Windows 7 PC on the market today—a small feat that makes a big difference to users every day,” said Vicky Agorrilla, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines. “Through the EExtraordinary contest, we are excited to uncover how others are making a difference by helping their communities in the same amount of time.”
