  1. My mom needs a tech overhaul… not just a makeover. She has a nice computer at work, but when she comes home..she has nothing. She always has to email or check the grandkids pictures at work…if she has time. I would like for her to be able to come home and eat dinner and then relax infront of the computer. She took in my niece and nephew when their mom died in a car crash at the ages of 7 and 10 and helped to raise them into the great kids they are today. Now 18 and 15. This was after we (her own children) had all grown and left the nest. She is the best mom ever. She really deserves it. Thank you for the chance. Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Awesome Moms out there!!

  5. My mom needs a tech make over to support her new Skype habit and to update off of Vista which I’m very tired of supporting remotely. She and my dad are also in a new house with the perfect place for the HP TouchSmart 320 in the kitchen so mom can keep working her way through the Epicurious recipe collection.

  43. My mom needs a tech makeover because she is always asking me how to use the computer and how she can find information faster online! I always tell her, you need some new tech gadgets! She also deserves it because she is the best mom! I am one of us 5 siblings that she has raised. Three of them are still 8 and under and she homeschools. She hardly has time for herself. Plus, homeschooling requires a lot of research and work on a computer, so this would be perfect for her!

  65. My Mother needs a Tech-Makeover because she has recently started working out of her home and has only an old model laptop at her disposal. She is currently awaiting surgery to repair four ruptured disc in lower back. She has been in a lot of pain and discomfort for the last year. Not too mention how much $$ she is forking out for Dr and etc. This would be a HUGE surprise for her, one that she deserves. She is the type of person who will surprise ppl who are in checkout line behind her at store, by paying for their items. Even though she may not really have it. I would love to see her get something in return for all her generosity and compassion. Thank you for the chance.

  74. My mom needs a tech overhaul because she still has her old gateway with a huge monitor that either works or doesn’t. Because it still works some of the time she refrains from buying a new one on account of she doesn’t know exactly what she needs or wants and makes the process long and complicated for anyone that has tried taking her shopping for one. ON the days her computer won’t boot she will stop by to borrow my laptop, which I don’t mind, but then I am left without mine and some days I need it.

  90. My mom needs a tech makeover because like most moms she puts herself last. Poor mom doesn’t even have her own computer. She rarely has the opportunity to use one. I’ve seen her look enviously at others using them but she’s afraid to use anyone elses because she’s “afraid she’ll break it”. I think she’d have a lot more confidence using one if she had one of her own. It would be aweome for her because she’d have access to the social media sites & email so she could get & stay in touch with friends and relatives she rarely gets to see. She’s a caregiver for my dad who’s blind so is isolated in a lot of ways due to his not being able to stay home alone. This would be an amazing Mothers Day gift, if I was lucky enough to win it!

  108. I’m a mom and I totally need an overhaul. My kids have taken over the “main” computer and I feel that its going to be worse as they get older. I am also “plugged in” all the time and I think its high-time that this mom gets her own computer so I can “plug in” and work, blog, tweet, instagram, pinterest anytime that I want! Plus, I’m more of PC person…just grew up with PC’s and would rather do all my work on it!

  109. Her computer is over several years old and is sluggish and she needs something new and fast.

  130. My mom needs a tech makeover because she has only learned how to play solitaire on the computer and it’s so old it takes forever to get it going. It’s the most irreprehensible thing I have ever heard of, but she is going through a separation as a true senior right now. The computer is a way for the kids and grandkids to connect with her as she now lives alone. She lives her life out FOR her family in every way and she deserves the best out there. Her story of fighting her way back and going back to school as a battered mom of NINE should be penned. It would be best seller but no one could ever believe…truth is stranger than fiction. She is our confidante, the leader of our fan club, our mentor and still is teaching us as she grows older. Amazing is the only word for her.
