Welcome, judges, to the first ever international hardware beauty pageant - the Battle for the Crown! There are countless hardware devices available to resellers just aching to be part of their next deal, but only a few exhibit such impeccable beauty to be considered for the crown. Our contestants have that special something, be it jaw-dropping design, amazing flare, universal appeal, or perhaps even a beauty that resides under the surface.
Like any beauty contest, our contestants had to qualify based on specific criteria. All hardware must be currently available and related to the IT computing industry, be they finished hardware devices, components, or peripherals. We also limited this competition to one contestant per family (vendor). Strict consumer devices are deemed ineligible, but consumer devices also available to the channel and marketable to businesses were allowed. Our final contestants were selected by the author and therefore pageant owner, yours truly.
Judges, it is your job to evaluate our contestants based on their performance during this contest. Critique their appearance, analyze their response to questions, and ultimately decide which of these contestants will be selected for the crown. The entire IT channel is looking to you!
Now, it’s time for the pageant to begin!
