This has been a fantastic week. I received a fun new toy in the mail…the new HP Envy X2 and a printer to go with it. The duo is coming in handy this week, let me tell you!
It’s almost Valentine’s Day and with a storm weekend ahead I plan to get all my Valentine’s day surprises ready to go! I love making useful gifts for Valentine’s Day! When it comes to classroom festivities, I would much rather send in pencils and erasers, stickers and such. Not stuff then just lands in the trash. With the HP Envy X2 and the HP Photosmart 7520, being creative has never been so easy for me! I have been working my creative juices to come up with some fantastic ideas of things to send in the Ben’s class…and some fun idea’s for family and friends. I have already posted my first idea. Home-made Valentine’s Day Bookmarks.
I think I may be in love with this new computer. I’m all about new technology, and the HP Envy X2 is the perfect crossover between laptops and tablets. One minute I can be sitting at my desk, looking up a recipe then the next, I’m in the kitchen, screen in hand, taking the recipe with me! I really thing this is a fantastic way to use technology in the home. I own two tablets that do not have detachable keyboards…though I could purchase the usb ones, I never bothered. Though they are handy, I always found myself in front of my laptop…I prefer having a traditional keyboard.
What I really like is just how easily they come apart! Just one little push of the button and off pops the screen. While the keyboard base is plugged into the wall, the screen will charge while docked.
The HP Envy X2 Features:
1.8 GHz Duel Core Intel Atom
11.6″ HD LED Display 1366 x 768
2GB of Ram 64 GB Hard Drive
Beats Audio with Duel Speakers
There are so many more features in the HP Envy X2. Like how sleek it is! It’s light weight (just a little over 3lbs) aluminum design is perfect for travelling. I can pop it in my purse and head out the door. No need for a big travel bag or case. It is extremely thin too…just 3/4 of an inch at its thinnist point! It is, in my opinion… perfect for on-the-go computing. It even has both full size and mini SD slots and USB ports.
I have to tell you about William. William is my 3 year old. He has been playing with out touch screen devices for well over a year now…and recently I introduced him to our older laptop. The lack touch screen threw him for a loop. He had the hardest time at first, trying to get the touch pad to move the mouse when he wanted it to go. As soon as I put him in front of the HP Envy X2 he knew exactly what to do, and how to make it work.
Now, the second half of this fantastic duo, the HP Photosmart 7520. This thing is the Queen of All-In-One Printers. I have never been so impressed with a printer. The 7520 features a touch screen menu pad with pre-loaded features…it is customizable to suit your own needs…but let me tell you, someone was thinking when they loaded this baby. With a touch of a button I can print out coloring sheets, crafts, cross words….all the fun things to keep the kids busy while I’m trying to conquer my to-do list. The crafts are perfect for the holidays. There are some fun decorations that I am going to be using for Valentine’s Day! But it doesn’t stop there! You can go to the HP website and get fantastic photo projects. HP really has your families printing needs in mind when they come up with these things. OH, and the best part. It’s an e-printer as well. That means that when I downloaded my newest knitting pattern to my phone today, I just hit print and I had the pattern in my hand…from smartphone to printer!!
Too Cool. Really…I’m amazed at the skills.
