Holiday Tech Gift Ideas from HP – HP Chromebook 14

tech gifts
It’s holiday gifting season and this year we have some of the hottest tech holiday gifts from HP.

Check out this video featuring my favorite tech picks from HP.

HP Chrome Book (2)

Our lucky little Kaila scored her first laptop recently from HP, in fact it was her Christmas wish this year. She got a new HP Chrome Book 14 with 3G/4G connectivity and she loves her newest tech gear more than anything else in her room. Its great to play games, look up new things on the internet, watch videos and so much more. With its large 14 inch and very bright LED screen, she has no problems using it where she needs.

HP Chrome Book (3)

The HP Chromebook 14 is a notebook that runs on the lightening fast Chome OS. She has access to the internet and all of the Google Apps along with writing and camera/video capture software. The Google Store has so many apps that she can find any app she could need for so manyt things include many learning and science apps which she loves!

2

The Chromebook is like a traditional laptop but is ultra lightweight, thin, fast and simple to use and not ruin. It has a 2 USB 3.0 and a 2.0 port, 1 HDMI port, head phone-in/mic-out jack, along with a multi-format digital memory card reader. The HP Chromebook includes 2 speakers and a TrueVision Webcam and mic. It also includes a 16GB Solid State HD which are much more effiecient and reliable than traditional harddrives plus its super fast for loading apps.

What is one of the neatest features is the built in 3G/4G connectivity. We have 200MBs of 4G data included per month with no annual contract. This feature makes it useful for all of us and lets Kaila escape and enjoy the sunny outdoors of California while geeking out. Also included for 2 years is 100GB of Google Drive storage allowing us to store and access files and content anywhere.

HP Chrome Book (1)

What is good about the Chomre Book is its very simple and easy to use. Our 8 year old cannot just download and install files and software like on a traditional PC making this very kid friendly. We can set the times she can use it and have access and control over anything she downloads.

Plus they come in three bright and fun colors which means we can also make her Chromebook 14 her own!

HP Chrome Book (4)

    My family is finding so much joy by just being so grateful and appreciative of the things we have. The year before, we had a very rough year with things such as my husband being laid off and not finding a job, problems with our marriage, etc. It was a very tough time. We stuck it out and have been so blessed over this past year with a huge turn-around. He found a job that he likes and has plenty of work. I even found a part time job I love. We both re-committed to making our marriage better, which in turn, makes the entire household happier. We spend more quality time with the kids. We just learned to not take anything for granted and appreciate even the small stuff. Over the holidays, we have really given our thanks and been able to enjoy everything.

    There is so much joy in our home at the holidays – each year it seems to grow! Excited kids making their wish lists, deciding what to buy for others, baking together, decorating the house, signing Christmas cards, donating food and toys, picking out a tree, deep cleaning & purging, dinners & get togethers, droping money into bell ringer’s pots, making goodie trays for Dominic to take to work, playing in the snow… it just goes on and on – I LOVE Christmas!
