Live in the Boston Area? Please Help with a PC Focus Group

Next week, I am conducting a focus group study on behalf of a company in the personal computing industry, and I need your help. The study will involve one hour sessions over two days—Friday, December 11 and Saturday, December 12—at the Dedham Hilton. Participants will compare two PCs in side-by-side tests for about 40 minutes. Great prizes—an Xbox One and a Dell XPS 13 laptop, plus two large PC displays we’ll use during the study—will be awarded randomly when we’re done. Plus, anyone who can come on Friday will get a $25 gift card to Summer Shack, Dunkin’ Donuts, or CVS, while those who come on Saturday will receive a $15 gift card.

We are looking for a diverse group of participants: Men, women, children (aged 16+), non-technical and technical people alike. Please indicate if you can bring a spouse or friends, too. The more the merrier.

Available time slots on each day are: 9:00 to 10:00 am, 10:30 to 11:30 am, 12:30 to 1:30 pm, 2:00 to 3:00 pm, 3:30 to 4:30 pm, and 5:00 to 6:00 pm. Please indicate via email—you can reach me at [email protected]–your first and second choices (or more) so we can schedule accordingly.

Also, as a special bonus, I’ll be providing each participant with a free copy of my new e-book, Windows 10 Field Guide.

Let me know if you can come to Dedham next week. 🙂
