How would you like to start the New Year off with an HP Mini 110-1100 by Studio Tord Boontje PCs? That is what Mom Blogger and 5 time Olympian Dara Torres, and Windows 7 would like to do for you!
Check out the video of Dara below for inspiration. She uses the 3.22 lb HP Mini 311 with its full-size keyboard and 11.6” HD screen to balance a grueling training schedule with her family life and work on her upcoming fitness book. She also uses Windows® 7 features like Jumplists, Shake, Snap, and Pin to help her manage all her digital content. I checked these features out at the Windows 7 website and they are so cool! I think I like Peek the most.
As moms, we have an avalanche of stuff to do throughout our day. We're moms, employees, wives, taxis, meal & activity planners and so much more. We have to find a way to balance finances, family, friends and free time. When we have that free time, it's nice to be able to spend it enjoying ourselves.
Anyone out there a single parent? I am and I know that life can been even more hectic without someone to share the load. I have 4 kids (18, 16, 10, and 6), and it seems that there are very few times I have a breather. There's is always something going on. It would be nice to have a laptop to tote around to use between kids basketball games or during 2 hour practices! Sometimes later at night, it'd be nice to be cozy in my bed with a laptop instead of sitting upstairs at the desk clicking away on my desktop.
One way to enjoy and at the same time simplify our lives is to use the HP Mini 110-1100. It has Windows 7 already loaded and ready to go. I love the thought of portability because at this time the only person in my home who owns a laptop is my college age daughter. Personally, I'm stuck at the desk constantly.
Speaking of my daughter, since she's in college, she's only been home 2x since August. That's tough on a mom who's had her girl in her life for 18+ years! I'd love to be able to talk with her via the computer instead of the occasional text messages on our phones. My 16 yr old is looking at going out of state for college! Waaaaah!
Living in Minne"snow"ta we aren't near any family. My family lives in Virginia and we only get to see them every other Christmas. The boys' aunts and uncles live in Chicago and we try to see them at least once a year. Having a computer with a web cam would make those distances seem so much closer. Think of how great it would've been for my parents to see us all opening their Christmas presents?
