SPONSORED: Streamlining Your Electronics Collection.

Please note: This post is being sponsored by Best Buy and HP.  I am being compensated to write this post with product and/or cash. Nevertheless, all opinions are my own.  I take my integrity seriously, and so should you.

If you are like me, you've got more electronics and computing power in your possession than you know what to do with. Phone. Computer. Tablet.  Camera.  Laptop.  Video camera. Smartwatch.  Backup Laptop. Drone.

And that's just me!  My wife has almost all of the above as well, and my son has most of these things also.  Our house is one large hotbed of electronics!  Thank the lord that we only have one child!)

 (And I'm not even including all of my legacy electronics.  I have a MAC PLUS that I bought in 1991 with a 10MB hard drive!  it still works, but I can't figure out how get the data off the hard drive-- I no longer have SCSI capabilities, and there's no internet/ethernet capability.)

Anyway, if you are looking to streamline your morass of electronics, HP has an interesting solution-- The HP Envy x360 series.

  The HP Envy x360 laptops are 2-in-1 devices that  transform from a laptop to a tablet in seconds. These are touch-screen laptops that come with a keyboard, Windows operating system, and Windows Ink capabilities so you can write on the screen with your stylus. They use a standard AMD processors and they are (as are most computers these days) fast and thin.


Through July 28, Best Buy has a special deal for an extra $100 off.  In reviewing these offers, I thought it was interesting that the 13-inch models are more expensive than the 15-inch models.  You pay a little extra for smallness.

Check out the offers here:

HP Envy 15in:

Features for these laptops include:

Full HD touch screen
A 1920 x 1080 resolution with impressive color and clarity. Finger-touch navigation,  IPS technology for wide viewing angles, and an energy-efficient WLED backlight.

8GB system memory for advanced multitasking
Substantial high-bandwidth RAM to smoothly run your games and photo- and video-editing applications, as well as multiple programs and browser tabs all at once. Models come with either 128 or 256 SSD hard drive.

360° flip-and-fold design
Versatile functionality with laptop, audience, tabletop, presentation and tablet modes.

Windows 10 and Windows Ink
Windows 10 brings back the Start Menu from Windows 7 and introduces new features, including Windows Ink, which allows you to quickly jot down notes and ideas with ease.

While I have been firmly a Mac guy for almost my entire life, I have to say that these babies have me tempted to switch (or at least to add on to my already impressive collection.)
