UPDATE: THE WINNER HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED!
Congratulations to Lisa Foster you are the lucky winner of the HP Mobile Mom Pack.
Having a business online gives you the flexibility to take your business where ever you go, which is great, but a pain in your neck if you always have to lug around a full-size laptop on your back. I’ve been that person for a long time, either lugging my 17” inch laptop around or carrying a portable drive where ever I go in case I need “that one” file. The problem with that is – when you forget the drive at home you immediately feel like you left your brain behind. Your computer hard-drive whether portable or built-in is the meat of your business; you’ll be lost without it.
So I was excited to be given the opportunity to review the HP Mini – I have to admit I’ve been eye balling the mini laptops since last year, I loved the red and the gold Vivienne Tam editions – but it wasn’t until the Preppy Pink became available that I knew I needed one.
Being a busy mom of two and a business owner I’m always on the go but I also always need to get work done which means I need to be connected constantly. Having a handy HP mini – designed for mobility at my fingertips allows me to work at the park, library, and restaurant or even in the car if I have to. It’s small and light enough to fit into a fashionable purse or diaper bag without weighing me down. I love that I can even tuck into some of the latest camera bags designed for woman.
I wrote a review about the HP Mini 210 HD Edition – A Laptop for the Stylish Geek: The Preppy Pink HP Mini

Another great item for the mobile mom is the HP V5040u digital camcorder. I have been meaning to start vlogging and this is a handy HD camcorder with a screen that flips back to front for easy self vlogging.
Of course the camcorder is small enough to fit in your purse for us moms that are always on the go. My favorite features of the camera include the ability to set the camcorder down and it will and start recording when it detects motion and you can also take still pictures at a resolution of 12mp.
The HP Mini and HP V5040u camcorder will be a perfect addition to my arsenal for BlogHer and other events. I won’t have to tote around my super heavy laptop and I’ll be able to easily record the day’s events on the HP V5040u.
