I have been using a HP Spectre Laptop for about the past year as has John and we LOVE THEM! When Best Buy reached out and asked if I wanted to test out the newest HP Spectre laptop while attending the Blogher Conference in Orlando I jumped at the opportunity. I have been so impressed with the clarity of the screen on the HP Spectre, how lightweight it is and how versatile it is.
This new version takes everything that I have loved about this laptop to a whole new level! It is convertible so you can remove the keyboard and use it just as a tablet with is amazing for travel. Oh and did I mention it is crazy lightweight. As in only 2.49 pounds and .5 inches thick. This makes my travel life so much nicer! I am all in for anything that lightens my travel bag and helps my shoulders not feel like they are hauling an elephant through the airport.
Next week I am heading to Costa Rica and one of the flights we have to take only allows 15 pounds of carry on. I started to have a bit of a panic attack because I NEED my laptop and I NEED my camera gear. I was so worried that I was going to have to leave a laptop at home and try to get work done from my phone for a week in the jungle. Thankfully this HP Spectre is only a couple of pounds and I can balance the weight out with my camera gear. I was so nervous about luggage weight I was trying to decide what clothes could stay at home so I could bring a laptop. I am sure after a week in the jungle the people who are traveling with me will be very happy that I am bringing not only spare clothes but also the laptop. LOL!
One of my favorite features of the HP Spectre that I am so in awe of is the stylus pen that came with it. The laptop has a touch screen which is amazing on it’s own but pair it with the stylus pen and life just got fun. We have been using the pen to take notes while we have our weekly business meetings. I can make notes right on the screen and send them to a file that both John and I look at. I can also write out appointments and send them to our calendars, jot reminder notes that update to our calendar and so much more.
While we were at BlogHer I had the chance to talk to a couple of amazing GeekSquad ladies and they gave me so many fun options for using the laptop. It is amazing how much they know about the products and how they can offer suggestions based on your life and needs. I love that!
Another feature I am hearts and flowers in love with is the ability to wirelessly transfer photos between the tablet and your Bluetooth-enabled cell phone!!! Woohoo! I love that I can edit my pics on the larger screen of the laptop and wirelessly whisk them over to my phone to be uploaded to instagram, Facebook, Twitter and all of the other social channels I am hooked on.
If you are a fan of Skype calls or you feel like you always end up on them with your family you are going to want this HP Spectre laptop. Have you ever had that moment when everyone in your family is trying to squish their heads in so they are on the screen to wave and talk to other family members. It always feels like you are the one in the middle handling the tech stuff and all of a sudden you have zero personal space and you mom and dad on your shoulders. Enter in the HP Spectre which has a huge wide angle camera that works great for these situations. You can actually breath and not share the same molecule of air with every family member trying to talk at the same time. LOL!
For all of the specific tech features and specs head over to Best Buy!
I can’t forget to mention the kickstand…it is killer! So perfect for working on a plane or while you are out having coffee. And it looks pretty darn cute and amazing at the same time.
I should probably admit that I when I bought my first HP Spectre I picked out the gold/chrome accented one because I thought it was so pretty. John has the silver one but I was all in for the gold accents. When the new HP Spectre came in and it has a gold kick stand I was a bit over the top excited. John still laughs that I partially picked out my laptop based on the colors and how cute I thought it was. It is just so sleek and stylish I love using it in business meetings and when I am on planes. So many people have commented how nice and professional it looks!.
