This past Thanksgiving we opted out of traveling this year, with only a few days off it didn’t make sense to pile everyone in a car to endure the “holiday” traffic. So instead we had a quiet dinner at the house with just us and the kids. It was small, quiet and pretty stress free.
But I have to admit that I still missed the buffet table of food, the chatter of family and friends and finally that satisfying/stuffed feeling you get after Thanksgiving dinner.
We had family calling the house so we decided to hook up the HP Touchsmart 310 I received to review and fell in love instantly. We quickly downloaded Skype and called the Grandparents and the kids had a blast talking. Even though we weren’t there we were still able to be apart of the celebration.
The computer was easy to set up, we were up and running and on the internet within minutes. The kids love the touch screen, to them its like a huge iPhone so they had no problems navigating around the screen. They both loved Tap Tap Bear and Bubble Wrap two games that you can download for free. My daughter also enjoys drawing her artwork with the Paint It! app.
The HP TouchSmart makes a great community computer – the kids can play games, watch their favorite shows on Netflix.com or Hulu.com and I can update my facebook profile or twitter stream.
One of my favorite features is the Recipe Box because you can add your own recipes, enable speech commands and even listen to directions via bluetooth. We will have both sets of grandparents at the house this Christmas so it will be a great time to show everyone pictures of the kids via my flickr stream. And for others that couldn’t make it we can easily chat with them online.
If you haven’t already checked out a previous model of the TouchSmart you will love some of the new features: You now have the ability to tilt the screen and you will love the software upgrades.Here’s some more information about the new TouchSmart.
