For a short romantic summer trip, Josh Walrath and I (Ryan Shrout) will be heading across the pond to London, England! With the primary goals of technology education and beer consumption, we thought it would be prudent to invite any and all PC Perspective fans in the area to join us for a night of talking tech, comparing beer preferences and just saying hello!

On Thursday April 27th starting 7:30pm, you will find Josh and me sitting in a dimly-lit booth at the Momentus Bar inside The Cumberland Hotel located at Great Cumberland Place London W1H 7DL. We have no specific agenda but will probably be there until at least midnight, hamming it up with anyone that walks over.

Yes, it looks fancy, but you're talking to some fancy lads, right!?!

As if hanging with your favorite hosts of the PC Perspective Podcast wasn't enough, I was able to coherce our good friends at ARM to sponsor the event and handing us a couple of Chromebooks to give away as well! That's right - come meet Josh and me at The Cumberland Hotel and have a couple of drinks!

On display at the event in London will be two ARM-powered Chromebooks: the Acer R13 and the new Samsung Chromebook Plus!

The Samsung Chromebook Plus powered by ARM

The Samsung Chromebook Plus is powered by the OP processor...a curious part with an even more curious website: www.whatisop.com.

Even though only those in attendance will be able to get hands-on with the two Chromebooks, we are offering the giveaway of the units to our global fan base! All you have to do is enter via the Gleam competition below for your chance to take home one of these two devices!

ARM-powered Chromebook Giveaway!

So, here's the summary: if you are in the London area on April 27th and want to come hang out with Josh and me at Momentus Bar at The Cumberland Hotel, we would love to see you at 730pm! If you aren't in the London area on April 27th, enter the contest above for your chance to win an ARM-powered Chromebook!

Might have to take a drive down to teach you guys how to pronounce aluminium ;)

Definitely!

I've just checked and it's a 33 min journey for me by public transport and foot. I'll really try and make it, I haven't been out much recently but I've been watching and reading for like 2 years now so would be amazing to see you in the flesh. No idea why this site isn't bigger! Nice location as well :)

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Gonna try and make it if work allows, as will be an overnight trip for me coming up from the deep south of Devon!

April 19, 2017 | 10:59 AM - Posted by Ryan Shrout

I don't know where that is, but please do! :)

Awesome, I can't make it all the way there but would love to get my hands on the chromebook! Also a live broadcast would be great.

I'm in Leicester all that weekend. Shame that. Maybe next time, as it would be good to meet you both in person. Hope you guys have a great trip. :-)

Does that bar require drinking alcohol?

I don't drink, but this is too close to miss out.....

15mins by bus.....

April 20, 2017 | 04:48 PM - Posted by Ryan Shrout

Does not require drinking, no! Please join us!

Again, as above, would love to meet you guys, but live far South - I know that these are not real distances like the States, but I am also weary about meeting my idols - I have been warned against that ;) It is great that you guys are coming to Blighty, hopefully next time I will be in London.

Long time listener, first time caller!

Will try my best to make it, you know you've chosen a bar in a pricey hotel that doesn't serve any decent English beer though?

April 23, 2017 | 09:37 PM - Posted by Ryan Shrout

So I hear...that's okay, we'll still have fun!!

April 26, 2017 | 08:37 AM - Posted by SpeedyVV

I've yet to find a place that serves decent English beer. :-p

Wow, great bar. Lots of Russian professionals, or so I hear.

I'll be there...!

Thanks to Ryan, Josh and ARM for a great night. Free drinks (shots etc too) and nibbles was very cool indeed, and great conversation and company. Best night I've had in ages :)

Hope to see you back here in the future.
