Competition Dell's Vodafone-powered Inspiron Mini 9 HSDPA netbook scored 85 per cent in our review, and now Vodafone, Dell and Register Hardware have teamed up to give away one of these little beauties and three months' airtime.

And that's not all. The mystery Vodafone agent known only as Liveguy has three more of the machines to hand out - every single day. He's touring the UK right now, waiting for someone to walk up and say: "You're Liveguy and I'm a Vodafone winner." Whoever does so will come away with a Mini 9.

Liveguy is posting clues to his current location on his blog and Twitter page. Or maybe you'll recognise his whereabouts from the movies he's posting on YouTube?

Dell Inspiron Mini 9

With its integrated 7.2Mb/s HSDPA 3G link, the Vodafone Dell Inspiron Mini 9 is ready to surf the web, and send and receive email almost anywhere. Pages show up clearly on the mini marvel's 10.2in screen, and keying in messages is a doddle on its near full-size keyboard. With a shock-resistant 8GB solid-state drive, your data will always be safe from the hazards of life on the road.

To try and win one, just answer the following questions. Don't forget to provide an email address at which we can reach you if you're lucky enough to be the name drawn from the Editor's hat. The competition closes at Midnight, Friday 28 November.
