Well it’s setup day here at Insomnia 47, ourselves and the rest of the exhibitors are in a mad rush to get everything ready for our wonderful LAN-goers to ensure that they have an amazing time at the winter LAN hosted by Multiplay known to all as Insomnia 47 (or i47 if you’re hip).

On our stand we’ll be having a host of fun things to look at, play with and take part in. We have our usual PC Quick Build Challenge to see who can build a PC in the fastest time and break the sub 2 minutes barrier. This means assembling, POSTing and then booting into Linux, that’s right – sub 2 minutes. We’ve seen it time and time again over at our stand and there’s a secret to getting such an amazing time. We’re not going to tell you what it is but it’s common knowledge to the usual Insomnia participants.

As well as proving your worth when it comes to PC building we also have our BenQ Grab a Grand competition, for those who remember Crystal Maze or Noel’s House Party you should be familiar with the grab a grand. It’s basically a Plexiglas box with holes in the floor and lots of cash inside. When the timer starts so do the twin powerhouse fans – this causes air to rush inside the box and the cash to start-a-flyin’ at this point you have a grab as much cash as you can to score a place on our leader board at which point you then have to either battle to the top spot or fight to defend it. At the end of the competition we’ll be crowning the number one contender king (or queen) and presenting them with a BenQ XL 2420T and some other goodies.

We’ve got lots of LAN only special items on sale so make sure to call round to get an awesome saving, there is also our limited edition i47 t-shirt available as well as free pop-corn so there’s no reason for you not to call round to our booth if you’re as Insomnia 47 this weekend.
