As a mother of 2 – a two and half year old and most recently a newborn, nothing needs more simplifying than my life. Between juggling my blog, tweeting, running my online store, going to nursing school all the while juggling the family’s complicated calendar, nursing what seems like 24/7 and making sure my toddler doesn’t feel neglected, my life is chaos. Always trying to juggle way too many things at once, this laptop would come in handy when I need to study most. That can be anywhere, anytime — while the DH is in the grocery store picking up the weeks food needs, I can be found with my microbiology book and notes in hand. While I’m nursing or washing the dishes, I’ve got my textbooks on audio being read to me aloud. What an amazing thing it would be to have this gorgeous, portable laptop with me to take practice quizzes on the road as DH drives us to run errands, catching a wi-fi connection, checking on my class discussion boards, replying to tweets and processing inventory and orders all at once. In those rare moments when I’m able to go to the library and get some intensive studying done, I will no longer have to wait in line to use the library computers at 30 minute intervals. I can take advantage of their free wi-fi and let another person have a chance at the library computers.
Although I can be found with hubby’s work issued (yikes!) laptop at all hours of the night and day, in the nursery on facebook, catching up on emails with friends with one hand and nursing with the other. It’s quite a skill I tell you and the only way I get to stay connected at the moment. Being the digital person that I am, a computer in every room would be a dream, although not very green I know. With my computers all around me dying some sort of death (age-related I assure you, not because I’m computer incompetent, although Windows 7 promises to be for those people as well), having an HP Mini 110-1100 by Studio Tord Boontje would be the perfect solution! Not only is it small enough and light enough (at 2.35 lbs) for me to tote from room to room, I can even pack it in the diaper bag for those on-the-road – okay more like trips to the doctor’s, grocery store etc., – tweets and blog entries. A sucker for designer items, it has a unique HP Imprint 3D of endangered animals overlaying Studio Tord Boontje recognizable flower and lace design. It appeals to the eco-friendlier side of me with its 10.1 inch mercury-free LED backlit display for higher energy efficiency. In addition all its packaging and user guides are printed on 100% recycled paper with soy ink. It touts handy features like HP QuickSync along with Microsoft’s new Windows 7 OS with features like Jumplists, Shake, Snap, and Pin to make organizing even easier.
