A few months ago I was on the phone with my mom and somehow it came up that her laptop needed to be plugged in in order to use it. The battery had long gone dead and the whole thing weighed about 15 pounds. Now that I think about it actually, I think it was probably ten years old. “Mom,” I said… “Your laptop is basically a desktop,” making a mental note to give her mine next time I upgrade. My mom is basically the busiest, active person I know. She runs our family restaurant on Cape Cod and relies upon her computer to do everything from accounting and bookkeeping to reservations and typing up the nightly special menus. She’s also incredibly active… running back and forth between the restaurant and home to meetings all over town, and then on her feet all night working at the restaurant. I don’t know how she does everything
When HP reached out to me about their #ReinventGifting campaign, where I could give an HP Spectre x360 Laptop to someone close to me, I immediately thought of my mom and how much easier this would make her life. Finding the perfect gift for my mom is never difficult (we have pretty much identical taste in everything), but a new laptop would be the dream holiday gift – it will allow her to be so much more productive, + it’s really thin + lightweight s0 she can actually use it on-the-go. And besides using it for work, she can have some fun with it, too. Her and my dad are often together in the same room watching different shows; and because the Spectre x360 is a convertible laptop (that’s also touch screen!) she can open it up, flip it upside down and watch all her favorites. I’m really excited to show her that part!
This isn’t jusssst about my mom, though! HP is giving away 6 Spectre x360 laptops via their Instagram/Twitter sweepstakes so that you can share the Spectre to someone on your list (or keep it for yourself – I won’t judge!). To enter, just visit my instagram post and comment with #ReinventGivingSweepstakes. Official sweepstakes rules can be found here.
PS – Check out this heartwarming video – it shows how the HP Spectre brings two brothers closer. It’s really sweet!
