If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you might have seen that I shipped the Surface PCs—two Surface Laptop 3s, two Surface Pro 7s, and two Surface Pro Xs—to the winners of Microsoft’s 2019 Windows Weekly Giveaway. Separately from that, I’ve also emailed the 10 Office 365 Home and 10 Xbox Game Pass Ultimate product keys to the respective winners. (Well, most of them. I still haven’t heard back from one product key winner. More on that in a moment.)
Thanks to everyone who participated: We had over 4000 entries across the three giveaways, but we must be getting pretty good at this, because it went pretty smoothly overall. In particular, I wanted to get the hardware out more efficiently than I did last year, and that seems to be the case.
Here are the winners.
Surface Laptop 3
Ron and mtsmedly
Surface Pro 7

As you may have noticed, there are only 9 winners listed above for the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate product keys: I haven’t heard from one reader yet, so I will try a final time this weekend, and if I don’t hear back by end of day on Monday, I will randomly select a different winner. Either way, I will list them here when I hear back.
Finally, thanks again Microsoft’s Chris Capossela, who once again graciously donated some great hardware and software for us to give away. Very much appreciated.
