Every year our family puts together a Christmas bucket list. It’s the must-do things for the holiday season. Every year it includes things like looking at Christmas lights, going to the Galleria to see the big Christmas tree, getting Santa pictures, watching Christmas movies and of course 24/7 Christmas music.
This year is well, slightly crazy around these woods. We just moved into our home 5 days ago. We are trying to unpack and all the while enjoy the holiday season. Christmas came a wee bit early for us this year. In addition to moving into our new home, HP sent us the new HP Envy 23 TouchSmart AiO PC. Talk about the perfect family gift and what great timing!
In order to unbox the computer, the kids had to help us get our family room cleared an unpacked. It worked like a charm, the kids were working their booties off to get to play with the new computer! Once all was cleaned it was time for setup. In 5 minutes, we were unboxed, unwrapped and plugged in. The biggest hiccup was trying to find our new wifi password.
We set the HP Envy Touchsmart PC to be central to all of our family activities. While this week has been insane, we’ve been crossing off a few bucket list items thanks to the Envy. The Windows 8 Netflix app comes preinstalled and we’ve already watched Miracle on 34th street. As I unpack while the kids are at school, Pandora is streaming (the Beats Audio speakers sounds amazing!) — Christmas music OF COURSE.
We had a previous version of an HP TouchSmart PC and loved it, but the technology has drastically improved. Windows 8 is a touch first interface, meaning it’s built for touch and then mouse/keyboard. So the touch screen just makes it all make sense. There are numerous features that we haven’t even had a chance to explore yet, but me and my 2 year old little man Izaiah sat down and made a quick video on it. The fun features had him cackling. I expect many more videos from the kids!
