The last few weeks have been a crazy rush. From Virginia Beach to Los Angeles and seemingly everywhere in between. I love the thrill of travel, being a tourist and indulging in what someplace new offers, but I still have work to do. As a blogger, I’m connected to social media, I have post deadlines and so much more. With Hewlett-Packard, I don’t have to give up to good life and I can connect with my family.
I wrote this review while participating in the #HPFamilyTime campaign for HP. I received an HP Pavillion x360, HP Envy Printer, and other items as part of my participation. All opinions remain my own and are in no way influenced by Hewlett-Packard.
When the HP Pavillion x360 arrived I was really impressed by its pint size. We’re talking measurements that will wow!
- Height: 0.9 inches
- Width: 12.1 inches
- Depth: 8.5 inches
In case you’re more of a visual person like me, the HP Pavillion 360 is pint-sized enough to fit into my purse making it easy to take it on the go when I go!
The first excursion we had scheduled was a little family time in Virginia Beach. It was a new destination for my family and we wanted to make the most of our visit.
From our hotel room we could see a statue of King Neptune. The kiddos wanted to know what it was all about. I referred them to the HP Pavillion x360 to look it up. They were excited to get to use the computer and they each read about the statue and were able to share what they had learned each day as we walked the boardwalk.
Once we settled into our room at the Residence Inn Oceanfront and had checked out the beach a little, the kiddos stomach reminded them it was time to eat. With ease, we use the HP Pavillion x360 to search Diners and Dives for places to eat.
We ended up looking for something a little closer and had dinner at a Greek diner.
As our micro-vacation unfolded, the HP Pavillion x360 was a great resource to help the kiddos relax and come in out of the sun.
Li’l Man loves that the HP Pavillion x360 features a 360° hinge that allows him to quickly and easily switch between laptop, stand and tablet modes. He loves the tablet mode and the touch-screen is awesome for a little Mine Craft!
Miss M loved sitting on the balcony with her headphones and listening to R5 with the HP Pavillion x360’s built-in BeatsAudio™ and dual speakers that are optimized for use in any position, delivering the best-sounding, richest audio on a PC.
As for me, when night fell and the kiddos dreamed about their day, I was able to focus on catching up with the comforts of home.
From Virginia Beach it was home for a flash and then I was off to Los Angeles for Disney’s Million Dollar Arm Event.
I packed my bags and loved during down time I could catch up on my email, Skype with my family and enjoy surfing the internet and working on my blog.
I love that the HP Pavillion x360 weighs less than 4 pounds so it doesn’t weigh me down during travel. It’s light enough for the kiddos to keep up with and slim to make packing or toting a cinch!
Now, I’m back home, working on catching up on my blog posts. I love that I can use my other HP Laptop to blog and indulge in my guilty pleasures of Survivor and Hulu+ while I’m clicking away at the keyboard. I just set the HP Pavillion x360 in the tent position with the 360 hinge and I can use the touchscreen to make navigating a snap! It adds some dynamic to my dull office area.
I am loving the balance Hewlett-Packard offers for me with the Pavillion x360. It’s a laptop turned tablet that can keep up with my family on the go, or at home. At right around $400 it’s a great solution for those on the run or seeking easy transition between work and play.
