Competition If you're a UK Reseller with a desperate need to overnight your laptop, then this competition's for you. We have teamed up with Microsoft to celebrate the launch of Office XP in offering one lucky chap or chapette the chance to own a deluxe black leatherette 'laptop overnighter'.

What, you may ask, is this thing they call an overnighter? Well, it's one of those luggage items on wheels with an extendable handle much beloved of international travellers lacking the upper-body strength to lift a suitcase.

Our example is courtesy of Masters of London, and features the fold-away trolley section plus overnight compartment and padded laptop section. At roughly 36 by 38 by 18cm, it's the perfect size for those short-stay continental corporate beanos.

All you have to do to stake you claim to this desirable travel solution is go to www.microsoft.com/uk/partner, check out the Partner Newsletter section and count how many news items are displayed. Having collated this information, email it to us here. Please mark the subject of your email "overnighter".

Rules:
The competition is open to UK Resellers only. Anyone can enter, but if you're not eligible we will sell your email address to a spam company and come round at night and tip over your dustbins. In short, we will check.

The deadline for entries is 5.00pm BST on Friday 1 June.

The first correct entry out of the hat gets the bag. Result will be announced on Monday 4 June. ®
