Great Summer Time Giveaway – Win an HP Laptop & Printer! Ends 6/28/14

*I wrote this review while participating in a program on behalf of HP and received an HP PC, a Snapfish gift card and other items as part of my participation.



If you follow my blog on a regular basis (which I hope you do :-)) you have probably read about my experiences with the HP Pavilion x360 laptop/tablet computer hybrid. It’s part laptop and part tablet.

Just in case you missed any of the posts you can find them here;

Staying Connected and Having Fun and Having Fun This Summer with HP

My Two Favorite Travel Companions – My Husband and my HP x360

Make Summer Time Travel Less Boring With HP

I LOVE my HP Pavilion x360. I have always hated to bring my laptop with me when I travel because it’s big and bulky. I also don’t like traveling with my iPad or tablet because I need something with a standard keyboard (like a laptop). The HP Pavilion x360 is a hybrid and a combination laptop and tablet all in one. It’s the best of both worlds!


The HP Pavilion x360 is slim, lightweight and portable. It’s easy enough to tuck inside your backpack, luggage, tote bag or large purse. Or you can easily carry it in your hand.

A unique feature with the x360 is that it has a 360 degree hinge allowing you to use it as a laptop, tablet or have it stand like a “tent”. This allows you the ultimate flexibility in the way you use, watch and enjoy your x360 whether you are connecting with family and friends on Facebook, catching up on e-mails, watching a movie, reading an e-book or playing a computer game.

The HP Pavilion x360 comes with built in Beats Audio for superb sound and a camera/webcam with allows you to take photos and/or video chat with family and friends – even when you are on the go (as long as you have Internet service).

I prefer using a keyboard but the x360 has a touch screen display too (just like a tablet). You can even use both the keyboard and touch screen when the computer is in laptop mode.

If features Windows 8.1 too.

This computer is great to take with you on the go whether it’s for business or pleasure. It’s perfect for your summer travels because your kids can watch downloaded moves in the car, you family can enjoy downloaded music, you can instantly share summer time photos with family and friends and stay connected with e-mail and social media (Internet service required).

We plan on taking it on our various summer time adventures.

Speaking of summer time you should check out my Summer Time pinterest board. I’ve made sure to include the HP Pavilion x360 as a summer time must have.

Thanks to HP I am giving away one of these cool computers to a lucky winner! But wait! There is more!


The lucky winner will also get an HP ENVY 5530 e-All-in-One printer. This small, compact printer is all you’ll need for your copy and printing needs. You can print, copy and scan.

For me the best feature about this printer is that you can e-print from your phone, tablet or PC. It prints out decent photos too so that you can snap a photo and send it to your printer via the WIFI connection. Why should Instagram have all your photos? LOL.

You can also use the printer with HP Connected and enjoy an abundance of fun and useful printables – some of which can be delivered directly to your printer on a daily basis such as recipes, comics and a menu planner. You children can enjoy a lot of great coloring page and activities.

If you would like to check it out for yourself visit HP Connected website.


You can also sign up for the HP Instant Ink program with this computer. HP Instant Ink is a service that ships printer ink to you when your printer is running low. Your printer “talks” to your computer which notifies HP that you are in need of ink and HP will ship that ink out to you right away so that you never find yourself without ink.

I have the service and I think it’s a fabulous idea. Its also a time saver because you don’t have to worry about checking ink levels or making a trip to your nearest office supply store to buy ink. It’s budget friendly too! If you are an occasional printer (printing approximately 50 pages per month) the cost is only $36 per year. If you print on average 100 pages per month the cost is $60 per year. That is not bad considering how much ink can cost, plus the gas money to go to store and the time it takes.

Don’t forget to send your favorite photos to Snapfish. 🙂


One lucky reader will win BOTH the HP Pavilion x360 computer AND the HP ENVY 5530 All-in-One-Printer, compliments of HP. Thank you HP!
