  • Hard Drive is 250GB
  • 10.1″ Screen
  • 92% Full-Sized Keyboard

    My wife won’t let me buy one, so the only way I’ll ever get one is to win it.

    A harley robe. big n comfy

  3. Lisa says:

    Since my dad has most everything that I could afford to give him, he asks for the standard: socks, underware, wallet, and jeans. Nothing very exiting. My dad has been a truck driver most my life, this would be a great way for him to keep in touch on a more personal level. It would blow his mind to have his own laptop in the truck.

  6. Jody says:

    I baked my Dad a cake. I do not know how to cook, so this was quite a challenge; besides I don’t earn enough money for gifts with all my bills. This was my special gift for Dad.

  7. Jan Sheldon says:

    My dad is gone now, but every gift I gave him, he would say that he loved it. :) He was a great guy. I miss him a lot. If I had to pick one gift it would be a tie. I know, I know, it’s cliche, but he always liked the ties I gave him.

    This may be a little late, but I hope it’s okay. This year I got my dad some Kenneth Cole shoes and a Hugo Boss Belts. He wears Hugo Boss jeans all the time, but with any old belt so I got him a belt to match, his shoes were a must because he only wears one type and rebuys them again and again everytime they wear out. haha. Hope Shoplet had a great wknd as well! <3

    That would be sooooo great!!!

  19. Judith Rabinsky says:

    He’s been a good father to four and loves to keep in contact via Skype. He uses the yard tools from last year, but having a newer computer would be great!

    When I was in middle school (dinosaurs roamed according to my youngest)… We had a school fair, for which I saved my money to go. Well, it was during school and the science teacher did engraving, I got a necklace engraved for him. Unfortunately- then I wasn’t one to complain but the engraving may have been better if I’d have done it with hammer & nails myself. It was pretty ugly. He’s still got it in his jewelry box tho!

    My own Dad has been gone since I was 15. but when I got married almost 34 years ago, one of the best gifts I got was my husband family- I got a new set of Grandparents and a Dad!
    We have always givin him a card and the best gift of all-time- we buy huge staks, and we spend the day grilling and hanging out with him :)

  103. Henley says:

    I’ve given my dad a nice jacket in the past for Christmas & I have made him somewhat proud that I’ve completed some part of schooling.

  104. Jill H says:

    I’ve given my Dad cologne, tools and taken him out to dinner in the past.

  105. Sarina says:

    We once took our dad to Vegas for the weekend! He had a blast!

  106. Kirsty says:

    My dad gets the same thing every year lately: a box of chocolate from See’s. I’ve tried giving him sentimental things but he never appreciates them, and he has everything else, so chocolate’s really all that’s left to give him!

  107. Cindy says:

    A couple of shirts, a coffee mug, and I took him out to dinner.

  110. Jerome says:

    One year I gave my father a sweat suit. He was so happy (I didn’t give him cologne) he started running up and down the hallway getting a workout. Maybe this time he’ll actually use a computer.

  111. Shannon says:

    Last year he go a new barbeque grill and the year before a hammock!

  118. Y Smith says:

    I just get cards for father’s day :)

  119. Vikki says:

    My son, is the pastor of our church. He is a dad who has been denied the possibility of being with his daughter Mahalia because she lives in California and we live in Ohio. He is always on the go as his passion and calling mandates his constant availability. His daughter sent me, the grandmother a video of her song she created for her dad for father’s day. He had to come to my house to view it and it was very touching. A new laptop would make their connection more frequent and they can always be in touch even when he is away helping others through the power of God.

  120. Annie P. says:

    A Card.

  121. Juan Haugaard says:

    I gave him a 250GB USB drive for his backups.

  122. Rhonda says:

    I got him a restored vintage WW1 watch.

  123. NancyC says:

    I usually give my Dad a card and candy. He has a sweet
    tooth! He’s never been big on the usual Father’s Day
    gifts and is hard to buy for. I know he would love surfing the web as he’s not able to do the things he used to enjoy.

  124. Khrysse says:

    I got him shorts and t-shirts. And I always take him out for dinner.
    In the past given him, cases of beer, wallets, candy and power tools.

    Things I’ve given my father for Father’s Day. Hmmm. Insomnia, headaches, charcoal shoe liners, ulcers, back pain, grief, nose trimmer, heart palpitations, stress, chef’s hat, sass, worry, anguish, bag o’ rags, numerous reasons to disown me, negative cash flow, and pumpkin bread. (I love you daddy.)

  134. Hratch says:

    Last year I overheated his car engine, so I gave him my car to

  135. Jerry Janow says:

    Among his hundreds of tools I try and find a tool he doesn’t have,Whew!! what a job.

  136. David Mock says:


  137. Rob from Whittier says:

    Golf balls…as it will probably be again this year! My dad is very low key & undemanding. Unlike his children (myself included!), I don’t know that he has EVER made a birthday or Christmas “list”. So we guess….& buy him movie passes, shirts that we HOPE he’ll like, and….golf balls.

  138. Harold Walker says:

    Last year for Fathers Day I gave want my Dad always wants and that is free maintenance on his computer. I updated and repaired several problems for him.

  139. Marlo says:

    Last year, I gave dad Crown Royal, or was it Jack Daniels, or was it Hennesy. Aw shucks, he got booze. Hey, it’s what he likes :-) Did I really just make my dad sound like a boozer?? He’s not. Love you Pops!!

  140. Katherine Smith says:

    Last year, I gave my dad a box of candy – before that a shirt – and a hat – laptop would be a much better gift

  141. Susan Baca says:

    A chicken.

  142. Barry says:

    Tools, clothes, stuff like that, but the other day he told me he wished he had a computer and new how to use it so he could email his grandchildren that live far away.

  143. Jules says:

    Last year I was still i nursing school, so all I could afford to get him was a card… :( But if I won this–it would DEFINITELY make up for last Father’s day! :D

  144. Mike says:

    I gave my Dad a break from being Dad by staying out of his hair and trying not to do anything stupid.

  145. James says:

    My dad has received every kind of gift known to mankind, but has told me the one he appreciates most is the gift of time, time with me, and time with my family. Happy Father’s Day to All!

  146. Carol says:

    clothes :(

  147. Sharon says:

    I generally give my dad some yummy snacks; jelly beans, chocolate covered peanuts, snack mix, etc. I like Shoplet on Facebook… I shared this on Facebook with comments… Happy Father’s Day to all fathers! :O]

  148. Christie says:

    Last year, all Dad got was a homemade cardboard cutout of a tie my toddler decorated with stickers, pom poms and glitter!

  149. Gilad says:

    I am shoplet email subscriber too..

  150. Jay says:

    Cash & flowers

  151. Megan says:

    A card. We were on vacation and well, it sort of just ‘popped up’ while we were there! Oh, we let him haul the chairs and beach umbrellas too!

  152. Steve says:

    Cards :) That and I take him out to dinner.

  153. george says:

    My father is extremely well groomed and loves clothes. His favorites are the classics, a fine navy blazer, cashmere sweaters, wool slacks. One time we found a pair of vintage tiffany cufflinks which he loved. this year he decided to go back to work and had to learn how to use email and the internet; he really gets off on emailing his grankids. I would love to get him the notebook because it would knock his socks off thinking he is hi-tech.

  154. Anna Bogier says:

    I’ve adopted my cousin’s husband as my dad since my father passed away and I just love surprising him with things he’s never seen or done before, such as Dinner at Pegasus in the Meadowlands in New Jersey along with money to bet on the horses, (he’d never been to the race track), seeing a live play, getting tickets for one of his favorite artists, Tina Turner, having him walk me down the aisle two years ago, clothing, making some of his favorite dishes unexpectedly, so that for him, any day can be Father’s Day.

  155. Fran V. says:

    Last year I got him shower curtains..we were just moving and I thought it was a funny gift. This year, I’m sure he’d like something more personal like the computer.

  156. Barbara says:

    My father lives 1200 miles away, so we celebrated Father’s Day a week early as he and my mother were in town. The gift our family gave him was time spent. That is his love language. We set aside time from our busy schedules and spent time with him watching the game on TV, eating meals together and just sharing special times. I will also send a card telling him that he is the King of my world.

  157. Kim Kenty says:

    My email address if I win is below.

  158. Kim Kenty says:

    I used to try to find different gifts for my dad like a new food to try or some new tool he didn’t have.

  159. Patti K says:

    My Dad is the hardest person to get a gift for that is within my budget. A netbook is out of my budget but he would love it! I usually get him MEAT! That’s right….prime steaks and burgers.

  160. Vivian C says:

    I give my father DVD every year because he likes to look at a lot of movies.

  163. Bill P says:

    More…Last year I got him a large LED flashlight with about 200 LEDs on it. Its state of the art and throws lots of light!

  164. Bill P says:

    My birth father died when I was just 13 but I was fortunate enough for my mother to remarry 4 years later to a great guy who was always generous with me and taught me many handy auto and home improvement skills. For years, I have tried to recognize his generosity by buying him unique gifts on Father’s Day, be it the latest and unique tool and or a new state of the art computer or electronic accessory. His face has consistently shown his excitement and delight to receive these gifts from me through the years.

    Sometimes it’s a gift card to one of his favorite fishing equipment or hardware stores or things for his salad garden. Mostly it’s just showing him that he’s very loved and appreciated.

    I gave Dad a tablet input device for handwriting. I’m also thinking of giving him a laser printer…I think this netbook might be a bit small for his older eyes….but still….

  225. Jolene says:

    My Dad died from cancer in 2008. In the past his favorite Father’s Day present was for me to make him a lemon pie and lima beans with ham. He was easy to please and I miss him terribly.

  226. Pat Hepler says:

    I have given my dad problems and lots of love and care. As far as gifts go, he has received trees, clothes, watches, and numerous tools over the years.

  227. Lisa K says:

    I’ve given my dad all kinds of things in the past – books, videos, shirts, taken him out to dinner, etc. A few years ago, my dad didn’t want anything to do with a computer because he thought he’d break something. Now that my mom got him interested in being on the computer, he loves to play games and even has a facebook account! Unfortunately, he has to compete for use of the computer with my mom and two teenage siblings! I would love to be able to give him something like this.

  228. Dennis says:

    Last Father’s Day gift to my dad was one where we both benefitted. My planned gift to him was a pill cutter, so I went to the pharmacy with him to pick up his prescription which he paid for with a check. I had placed the pill cutter on the counter too and it got rang up at the same time as his prescription. The check total was for the prescription and my Father’s Day gift – the pill cutter which he did not notice. Though somewhat “devilish”, to make amends I took him out for dinner. It sure was a good gift though, he still is using it!

  229. Suzieq says:

    magazine subscriptions; national geographic, gift cards, Bass Pro and Restaurants, Fishing trip, shirts, ties, wallets, pictures, etc. But, a laptop would be absolutely awesome

  230. Laureen says:

    Mostly I’ve given my dad high blood pressure. Actually, I think I’ve only given him one thing in the 52 years he’s been a dad. That was a rose bush (it died) that was a combination Father’s Day & birthday present (May).

    He needs a puter!

  231. Adriane says:

    I gave him a picture of the fam framed last year w/ a card

  232. Kristy Schwab says:

    My dad is 1/2 way accross the country so I send him gift cards to his favorite restaurant (Red Lobster) and for his fishing & boating (Bas Pro). This would be the ultimate gift he would then be able to skip his great grand children.

  233. Cindy says:

    Last year Dad in our house got a regulator for the gas grill. My dad got movie tickets…and we always do a picnic which is the best part of spending Father’s Day with all the father’s in our family.

  234. Lisa S. says:

    Dad died from pancreatic cancer in July 2006. I am looking forward to seeing him again, as we both put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

    I have always given something from the heart. Why you ask my father always gave the best he could to his children. Even if it meant he went without. He always liked gifts that we made for him as kids. Things like drawings, pottry, and I once made him a pencil holder for his desk out of a soup can and paper and its still on his desk and he uses to this day. Im 41 years old. LOL funny but cute huh. Now today the end is almost here! My father was diognosed with small cell cancer 3 years ago and he has been beating it up till about a month ago he now has a hard time getting around and spends alot of time in his recliner. He loves to talk to his ex army friends and play computer games. But says that it hurts to sit at his desk and talk and play I believe this would be a great gift for me to give him….

    I don’t set aside a particular day to show my love and appreciation for my father. Rather, I try to do that on regular basis. Life is too short to wait for one day each year. Some of my fondest memories are the fishing/camping trips we would take together when I was younger. I am planning a fishing/camping trip with my father and son. To me, spending time together on a regular basis is the ultimate gift. Of course, that will include a fishing license and other fishing related gifts too.

  245. Kristy says:

    My dad has gotten home accessories, hunting equipment, gift cards, clothes. However, my sons gave their dad a camera a few years ago that was stolen out of our vehicle parked in the driveway at our house. Last year my husband sacrificed and give up fathers day so my oldest could play in a baseball tournament. He is now a stay-at-home dad and this notebook would be a wonderful gift for him.

  246. pauline says:

    I always gave my Dad silly little things like lottery tickets, a talking fish. One year I bought him his fishing license. My Dad passed away this March and this will be my first Fathers Day with out him. But the love I gave him year after year is the best present any daughter could give

  247. Elizabeth Dominguez says:

    We got our dad a gift certificate to go sailing on the beach. He has yet to use it because he is waiting for my sister or I to come down and sail with him, but we can never come with enough time in the summer. We’ve also gotten him the “usual” man stuff but I think his favorite gifts are always polos from our colleges. He has one from University of Florida and one from University of Wisconsin-Madison that he wears a lot! It would be awesome to win this because he is always complaining about computer problems. He calls us all the time with questions on how to fix the bugs on his ooooold computer.

  248. Leesa says:

    We got dad a gift certificate for the golf course. The netbook would be an amazing gift this year!

    A Poem:

    You have your club, you have your boat,
    For which you rightfully can gloat.
    You have a Volvo, big and blue,
    You have a new CD-drive too.
    You have 5 grandkids, how ’bout that,
    You wear their pictures in your hat.
    You wish your kids would be like you,
    And keep traditions as a Jew.
    You miss your wife, but love to dance,
    Which often leads to new romance.
    You’re easy and you’re difficult,
    You play your trumpet with a mute,
    You sit, play Freecell, and compute,
    At night you eat a piece of fruit.
    You sometimes yell vs. consult.
    Except on Mondays you exult,
    When demonstrating your ‘tumult’.
    “What kind of soup?”, they may request,
    “Good soup”, you answer, half in jest.
    But when your kids have needed you,
    You’ve always been there, coming through.
    And that’s one reason why it’s true,
    That RAM LIM LAM appreciate you.

    My dad has Alzheimer’s disease, so he can no longer use most of the “usual” gifts anymore. Even though he was a computer engineer, he now can not even turn on a TV. So, for the past couple of years, I’ve given him a coupon good for an evening at the local baseball park. We’re lucky enough to have a Single-A team and a beautiful new baseball stadium here in our hometown, so there’s no long driving involved. I purchase four handicap access seats right behind home plate and my parents, my hubby & I make an evening of it. Hot dogs, peanuts and Cracker Jacks are all on the “dinner” menu. He loves it!

  376. Anne M. says:

    o gosh, ties, lol! But what he liked most was what I gave to him when I was 20- I wrote a long note, basically a letter, telling him how thankful I was to have him as a Dad, and reminicised about some of the memories we had together. He kept it in his wallet until he passed away, for 26 years. <3 I would love to win this netbook, for my dh, who is a wonderful father to our children–he complains everyone has a computer except for him, lol!
