Acer has announced a Facebook campaign where users can get a free Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook. In order to join the competition, users need to like the sweepstake page and enter relevant contact information. Unfortunately, this promotion is US only, so international Facebook users cannot participate (clicking the sweepstake link leads to Acer's Facebook page). Acer will be giving away one ultrabook everyday through December 31st. The campaign started yesterday so with quick math, Acer will be giving away a total of 60 Ultrabooks during the campaign. 

We reported about Acer's S3 Ultrabook already in September, with more depth-in release coverage in October. Acer will be giving away the cheapest $899 model, which specs are listed below.

    I hate when giveaways use facebook in any way, face or shape. Luckily my wife has a crackbook account so I'll just use hers.

    Most likely to promote their social networking. It's easy to advertise to people who have Liked your page.

    I'm kind of happy I don't live in the US anyway - so I don't have to worry about finding someone with a FB account :p

    I don't have a facebook account, though my daughter has one. Is there an age minimum? I don't think I'd want to create a facebook account just to enter a contest, but it'd be great if my daughter could win one since I promised to purchase a laptop for her for Xmas, would save me some $$.

    I don't see anywhere where it says whether or not you need to re-enter everyday, or if one entry carries you until the end of the year. It does say that you can re-enter no more than once per day.

    I just went through the entry process, and it looks like you have to re-enter each day. The Acer wall has this comment, for example: "Did you enter to win an Acer Aspire S3 Ultrabook yesterday? Do it again today, and tomorrow and the day after until Dec. 31. Keep trying until you win."

    Yup, I've got a daily hobby till Dec 31. But you can't complain much about FREE!

    U.S. only....

    If you live outside of the U.S., don't bother.
