I had the chance to review the new HP Spectre laptop, and I have to say that I am so impressed! It’s form and function is on point. But this post isn’t about how I received it for myself. It’s about giving it away to someone very special to me.
My mom, who was a single mom for some time during my childhood, was and is selfless, hardworking and consistent in her love for my brothers and I. She got her teaching degree when I was in JH, while still working to provide for us. She taught me that no matter my age or circumstance, if I worked hard enough, I could achieve anything.
When my mom decided to go back to school, she knew right away that she wanted to be a teacher. She has taught now for many years, and her students have always been very lucky to have her. The Spectre x360 is a perfect fit for her lifestyle. The long battery is an added bonus for when she is at school for long hours of the day, and the touch screen makes it so easy for her to navigate around the screen. It’s the little things that can add up and make life easier.
My mom has been using an older computer that is both chunky and slow. It wasn’t helping her lifestyle in anyway. The Spectre x360 will add value to her life in a meaningful way. It will also allow her to get work done in half of the time that it was taking her before.
The best thing about giving the Spectre x360 to my mom is that it’s a gift that she will use almost every day. For me, this holiday season is all about gift giving with a purpose. I want to bless my friends and family with items that they will use time after time. The Spectre X360 is one of those gifts that will not go unused.
Watching her open this gift was so fun. She isn’t the type to go out and buy herself a new computer. She would rather spend the money on her grandkids or kids. HP is all about reinventing giving. For me that involves doing something that makes a mark in someone else’s life. If that means that my mom can create a better life for herself by simply having a Spectre x360, than I am all about that!
