Well played, sir. A Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook for your efforts.

Don't lose heart if you missed out, we've got new comps every day!

The XPS 12’s touch-enabled flip screen lets it instantly transform from an ultrabook into a Windows 8 tablet. It’s also built from durable materials: machined aluminium, bonded Corning Gorilla Glass and carbon fibre. The machine we have to give away packs a Core i5 processor and 256GB solid state hard disk and 8GB of memory. You can learn more about it here.

To enter, simply write a technology-themed, 5-7-5 haiku in the comments that includes the word FLIP. You must also be a registered Gizmodo Australia member. Not a member? Register here.

That means 3 lines: 5 syllables first line, 7 syllables second line and then 5 again. Example:

Laptops that transform Will soon be the new blue chip Hybrid tools that flip

    Flip, flip, the screen turns
    The ivy bridge to freedom
    Touch our destiny

    A great ultrabook
    Flip the screen for a tablet
    Back for a laptop

    My Lumia Rocks
    I take it on every trip
    Watch this table flip

    (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

    Hmmm, interesting competition. Okay, let's give this a shot.

    This reminds me of
    A Flipsiders cassette game!
    Who had one of those?

    If anyone else was a child of the 80's you should remember flipsiders! And for those that weren't, here you go:

    They were awesomesauce.

      Ooooh maaan! I had one of those lol I also had a Madball haha

    Whatever you do
    Do not flip normal laptop
    Or you will break screen

    A gift still to buy
    For my technophobic wife
    This will make her flip

    Tiles that are alive
    They flip and flash with data
    Users touch, then type

    I don't always flip
    but when i do it's always
    on a long road trip

    why do haikus sound
    so stilted usually.
    give me the laptop

    Dell XPS 12
    Convertible Ultrabook
    Laptop. Flip. Tablet.

    Do you want a tip?
    Dell XPS 12 owns all
    with one simple flip.

    A tablet in need
    Now why not just flip over
    What a laptop now?

    I will be so hip
    Keyboard becomes beautiful
    Touch screen when I flip

    laptop screens are great
    but what they really need are more
    flipping fingerprints

    Laptop or tablet
    Flip it, turn it inside out
    The best of both worlds

    On-screen keyboard pain
    magically solved with just
    a flip of the wrist

    Hybrid flip style
    built for power and pleasure.
    This is the future.

    EDIT: Fixed the fact that my second line was actually 8 syllables.

    Spinning Screen delight
    Just flip and keys hide from sight
    Gestures now the king

    Flip me over silly fool
    Convertible laptop see
    Merry Christmas me

    Laptop to tablet
    Change, quick as Melbourne weather
    Flip the screen, turn heads

    I would flip my lid
    if this awesome dell fliptop
    was declared all mine

    Dell Convertible,
    Touch and type? Oh yes they did.
    Please now flip your lid.
