2007 AMD Microsoft Tech Tour Registration Now Open

Registration for the 2007 AMD Microsoft Tech Tour is now open. I missed this event last year because it happened while I was in Taipei for Computex. I had to send staff writers to cover it. This year, the Vancouver tour is happening on May 15th so I’ll be able to attend since I won’t be flying to Taipei until June 2nd.

If you have never attended an AMD Tech Tour, I highly recommend it. The tour is a lot of fun, there’s a lot of free stuff given away and a buffet dinner is included in the admission price. Speaking of admission price, here’s the best part – the price is zero! That’s right, the event is completely free to attend. The AMD Microsoft Tech Tour happens between April to June in 19 cities across the US and Canada. Find a closest tour to your city.

Just like last year’s Tech Tour, this year’s event will feature a nice hardware bundle that you can buy for just $349.00. That gets you an AMD Athlon 64 dual-core 4400+ CPU, ASUS M2A-VM with AMD 690G Chipset motherboard, and Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate OS. The bundle will be available for purchase at the event but only to system builders or resellers of Microsoft software, or employees of a Microsoft retail partner. I’ll find someway to qualify. 😈

The AMD Tech Tour is designed for resellers and system builders. You have to be in the industry if you want to attend this event. However, if you’re evil enough, you’ll figure a way to get in even if you’re not part the industry. I hope to see a few John Chow dot Com readers at the Vancouver Tech Tour.

Register for the 2007 AMD Microsoft Tech Tour.

    I remember AMD giving out freebies to attend their online webcasts with Sun and Microsoft. I sincerly hope they survive the difficulties they are facing now against Intel and rock their way through.
    AMD is one company I admire and have been using it since AMD 1700+XP (Throughbred) was released.

    1. Same here, been using them for 6+ years

    2. They’ll survive – especially since they bought ATI!

        I’m an INTEL man, so there! :mrgreen:

        I don’t have anything against attending and getting free swag tho! 😛 If only I was closer.

        1. Personally, I don’t think it really matters. I’m not rendering video or playing the latest, greatest games…

  2. James says:

    You could build a nice little system starting with that. I would probably not qualify.

    1. It’s a trade show, there are always ways around rules like that!

  3. Chris Chen says:

    AMD used to offer a desktop and server bundle. I guess either the lines between the two have blurred or times are tougher for them?

    1. I doubt it, there is a big difference between the server and consumer lines!

  4. Soultrance says:

    What kind of free swag did your crew score at last years event, just curious?

  5. Michael Kwan says:

    I’m going 🙂

    1. ❓ Will you review it on your blog too?

  6. Marc says:

    John I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that you’ll find a way to qualify 😉

    1. Dave says:

      Well John runs TTZ, so he qualifies…legitimately 🙂

  7. Dave says:

    I’d love to check it out, but I’m too far away 🙁

  8. That would be an awesome conference.

  9. Stephen says:

    The last one I went to, I won a 74 and a 36 GB Western Digital Raptor Hard Drive. They shipped me the 36 GB one by mistake, and shipped me the 74 too. They told me to keep the 36 😈

    I’m already signed up. See you all there 😉

    1. Dave says:

      Wow, you’re lucky Stephen 🙂

    2. IS THAT WHY I NEVER GOT MY DRIVE?!?!?!?

      😉

  10. David Mackey says:

    Wow. That’s a pretty sweet deal. Too bad I’m not quite in that industry (Network Engineer).

    1. Dave says:

      Stick up a blog about technology and write some posts, then you should be able to get in as you are “part of the media” 🙂

  11. Jeff says:

    Hoping I will be able to make it to this conference!
