Hello Lovely Skinny Laptop

Confession.

I’m not crazy bout machines.

Not good with them.

I make bread the old fashioned way,

have no idea how a microwave

cooks my oatmeal every morning, and

it’s surprising I can operate a vehicle.

But I needed a new machine.

When you rely on a laptop for work and

the old heavy one they don’t even produce

anymore whirs like a jet, leaves burn marks

on your bare legs, and seems

destined to blow at any moment,

it’s time to greet

something new,

something light,

and

something reliable…

Hello, Lovely, Skinny Laptop machine I don’t hate one bit.

Hello, Lovely, HP Elitebook Folio.

After researching options, I decided the

HP EliteBook Folio 1020 G1 12.5″ Touchscreen

would be perfect since I am on the go

as a writer and and blogger,

and I’m grateful HP partnered

with me, providing this computer which is

not only thin, but dare I say it?

Elegant.

Cool yer jets.
I may not be machinesmart,
but I know looks aren’t everything.
Before I decided an Elitebook would fit the bill,
I researched it.
I tried out a bunch of keyboards
since a good tactile feel to a writer
who types almost all day, everyday
is, like, um, everything.

(Apparently I have like totally been spending
like too much time in the valley lately or whatever.)

The other thing that mattered to me?
Good battery life since the old typing machine
just could not keep a decent charge.

Enter a Skinny new silver laptop savior.
Yay for battery life!

You may have spotted the laptop when I posted pics
the other day of the new slipcovers for the sofas at
the Arizona fixer upper, and since I rarely
sit at a desk (I work at the kitchen island,
from bed, on the sofa, and on planes), I truly
appreciate how skinny and light this baby is.

How light?
Around 2 pounds.
Yep.

This bed is often my office…like the Brushstrokes sheets?

When I’m not working from my “inter-nest,” I can
be found at the Arizona fixer upper all cozylike.

 My sister Jo snapped these pics, and we carved
out time last month in Arizona for photo shoots and fun
with our youngest sister Lala even though the circumstances
(helping my folks navigate their health traumas)
were less than lovely.

Jo is crushing on this laptop too and may have
to welcome one into her life.

Fine. I don’t typically blog while in ruffle cotton-y goodness but this baby’s a looker.

  Below is a sneak peek at the master at our Arizona home,
where we added trim to a large wall as a sort of mega headboard.
I can’t wait to share more of the place with you very soon.

This blogger still loves to blog, and the HP EliteBook Folio is her new favorite creative tool.

In case it doesn’t show in the photos

(newsflash: at my age, your face can appear

tense like even when you’re totally relaxed…

in fact, your spouse may inquire “what’s wrong?”

even when you’re in sunglasses because of the

elevens and a tense-midlife-face thing),

I am diggin this laptop lifestyle

since it means I can work from anywhere

with a pretty new Elitebook.

Hope this finds you well, and if you care to see

this light as a feather laptop on video, see it

in this tour of the fixer upper…also, if you missed

this Arizona valley girl’s recent posts,

like totally check ’em out:

Peace to you right where you are.
