The Sapphire HD3 Mini PC is powered by AMD’s E-450 APU, 4GBs of DDR3 SODIMM memory. Internal storage is provided by a slim 320GB 2.5 inch hard drive. It’s capable of playing all your 1080p HD video, do regular web stuff, and it’ll even play some games at moderate settings. But that’s not what makes it special!

All this performance is packed into a package that is no bigger than a paperback novel. If you don’t know what that is, then we’ll say that it is smaller than a 7 inch Google NEXUS tablet and not much thicker than a couple of Galaxy NEXUS smartphone stacked. We’ve parked it beside one just for comparision. But when you think about what’s packed inside the chassis, you’ll realize that all adds up to being amazing tiny. This is easily the perfect HTPC that takes up next to no room. If you add on the Wireless N connectivity and the two USB 3.0 ports for additional video, music and photo storage, it turns into one very capable little media server. You can even plug it in via the Gigabit Ethernet port if you want a more stable connection.

The Sapphire HD3 comes in two versions: Barebone and loaded. Sapphire was kind enough to give us the version complete with hard drive and memory so you’ll be ready to rock once you install an OS of your choice. If you’re looking for more details on this cool little system, you can check out the official product page.

As mentioned earlier, the value of this amazing prize, generously provided by Sapphire Technology USA, is valued at $399 US MSRP so read on to find out how to enter!

    Thanks for this opportunity. I did all but the last step, as being a Christian I don’t say anything is holy except for God, even in jest, as I feel there’s nothing cute or funny about doing such a thing. Thank you for the other entry methods though.
