Back To School for most people is all about opening the circulars and saving on school supplies! Also, outfits and shoes which will last, I know!
But I want to introduce an idea which took me a long time and hours of negotiation with my son to reach! The conclusion is that Minecraft doesn’t run on a slow computer, that he can’t edit his intro videos with After Effects using the desktop I gave him, that his needs count too and if I want to help him develop his passion, I need to give him the right computer!
Not only that but school assignments are more demanding, a lot of it is done online! Forget about the old pen and paper!
I know what you’re thinking! I want to spend the least amount of money on their laptop! Yes, that’s how I thought too, but then the fights started, when he wanted to use my laptop for gaming, creating intros and other school needs, because his didn’t support it! The sentence: “this lags so much” was on auto pilot at my home!
That’s why you should consider investing in a laptop which will, for many reasons, be the right Back To School Choice!!
For all those reasons (and so many more I could share with you), are why I truly believe the HP Spectre X2 is the best Back to School purchase! Whether your child is in middle school, high school or college!
Here are some of the HP Spectre X2 features I love:
12.3″ multitouch screen for hands-on control
- Touch, tap, glide and make the most of Windows 10.
- IPS technology.
- WLED backlight.
I love the fact that you can touch the screen and be able do things easier on it! Taking notes, writing memos instead of the old note pad! A huge feature for students!!
Seamlessly switch between high-functioning laptop and portable tablet forms. The durable hinge makes it quick and simple to dock and detach the display from the keyboard.
You don’t need to take the whole computer to the classroom, you can just take the tablet!
Weighs 2.49 lbs. and measures 0.5″ thin
- Ultraportable design, featuring a smaller screen size and omitting the DVD/CD drive to achieve the compact form factor.
- 4-cell lithium-polymer battery.
I truly love how thin it is! No more carrying a heavy computer around! It will be your child’s/college kid’s first item in their backpack!
Offers a sleek look. It’s Trendy and high tech looking! Exactly what kids like to show off to friends! It will be the envy of the class!!! Instant crowd pleasing factor!
Bluetooth interface syncs with compatible devices
Wirelessly transfer photos, music and other media between the tablet and your Bluetooth-enabled cell phone or MP3 player, or connect Bluetooth wireless accessories.
While they are working on assignments, they can listen to music, to their favorite station or an audio book!
2 USB Type-C ports
To maximize performance on the latest high-speed devices.
The high speed special features are a favorite among gamers and students which need that extra performance boost!
Dual-band wireless network connectivity
High-speed wireless LAN built into the screen, so it connects to your network or hotspots on all current Wi-Fi standards in both laptop and tablet modes
Built-in HP TrueVision HD webcam with dual-array digital microphone
Makes it easy to video chat with family and friends or teleconference with colleagues over Skype or other popular applications. Automatically adjusts for available light.
It also logs you on based on face recognition, an extra security feature! It will be a game changer for kids endless Skype sessions!
But the best is yet to come! Did you know that students save $ 125.00 on the laptop right now? Another incentive for you to consider it!
I hope you now understand why I’m in love with the laptop and my decision to let my son use it! I’m not going to lie to you, like many families, we share devices, he does have his own desktop, which is a backup when I need to take the HP Spectre on Trips with me!
Yes!! No more carrying a heavy bag through airports!!! Can you hear my happy YESSS????!!
