In my college years, my first time using a computer, I used floppy disks and the screens were black and green. My kids probably won´t believe this, but I had to insert the Operating System in the computer for it to start. Technology has come a long way since then, by the time our kids go to college paper notebooks will probably live only in museums.
Laptops were a luxury when I was in school, now they are a necessity, and thanks to companies like HP, Intel, and the like, students have the latest technology at their finger tips as they head off to school.
Allow me to introduce you to the hp Pavilion dv6, a sleek, beautiful notebook I’ve been playing with for the last couple of days and I´m still discovering new things. For now I’m just going to say, it took only seconds to connect it to the internet and just three minutes to add Spanish to my keyboard so I can switch from English to Spanish in one click. I watched a few videos while uploading photos and video to youtube, plus, as usual, I had about 10 windows open at the same time (I tend to do that a lot) and the Pavilion dv6 handled it all beautifully. No surprise really, the heart of this machine is an Intel 2nd Generation Core i7 Processor, who doesn’t like fast laptops?
In the next few days I will tell you more details about it, how you and your school age kids might use a laptop like the hp Pavilion dv6 and how you can participate for a chance to win one! Yes, you read it right!
