Two ways to enter:

  1. No purchase is necessary to enter the contest. To enter just send your creative photo entry in .jpg format, no larger than 200kb in size, to  In the email you must list your full name, address, phone number and email address.
  2. If you purchase any system from PROPortable during the contest period you will automatically have your name entered into the Grand Prize random drawing portion of the contest.  Customers who make backorders, advanced orders, or purchase discounted systems will automatically get two entries to the random drawing.  Customers that buy a system from PROPortable may also submit a creative photo entry for another chance to win.

Creative Photo Contest Entry Instructions:

The concept of this contest is to be creative with photography and product placement. PROPortable wants you to use their logo and/or one of their computers to be represented in a fashion of your choice.  Whether that be on an overhead during a college lecture, or on a banner on the side of a building, it’s up to you.  Just please don’t break any laws in the process.  You do not need to own an Asus or PROPortable product to participate, but their inclusion will help the judged part of the contest.   Photos can be touched up, but the point of this exercise is not to simply add a PROPortable logo to the side of a building using Photoshop, however those that are tastefully executed will not be disqualified.

For the purposes of this contest a copy of the PROPortable logo can be found at the following link: PROPortable "Quality Mobile Computing" Logo in .psd format. A full list of rules are available here.


The Grand Prize of a customized Asus R2h UMPC is open to everyone who either submits a photo entry or purchases a PROPortable system. It is a random drawing, so everyone has equal opportunity to win, judging of the photo entry quality is not considered for this portion of the contest.

  • Grand Prize: The grand prize is an Asus R2H UMPC customized with a Cinnamon Anodized Brushed Aluminum face and also a custom dark charcoal painted chassis. The winner of this Asus R2h will be selected randomly from all entrants names (from both the pool of photo entry submissions and those that purchased PROPortable systems).
