Embracing a Healthy Family: The HP Techy Ready Student & $25 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway - US - 8/31

The HP Techy Ready Student & $25 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway - US - 8/31

I'm still amazed that summer is over and it's back to school time already.  The summers seemed to fly by when I was younger especially the older I became.  Now it seems that I blink my eyes and a month has passed.  Getting ready for school was always a favorite time for me but when I was growing up, the necessities were basic school supplies and clothing.  We didn't have all the cool gadgets and technology that they have now.  Those modern technologies have become the equivalent of what pencils and paper demanded.  All my children have a computer, printer and plenty of ink throughout the school year.  This year, it's time to look at getting a new replacement laptop.  I always check out Walmart first as it's where I purchased my last desktop. The HP Midnight Black Pavilion DV-6-7029wm Laptop PC looks perfect for what we want.

Some of the features that draw me to the DV-6 notebook aside from having great memory, include:
  • SuperMulti DVD burner
  • Wireless LAN
  • HD TrueVision webcam
  • Up to six hours of battery life
  • Windows 7
  • Windows Starter
  • Norton Internet Security
  • HP Recovery Manager
  • Beats Audio amplified with quad speakers 
I don't have enough printers for the computers we have in our house and my youngest one has been begging for one.  The HP Deskjet 3052a e-All-In-One Printer looks like a great choice. I thought my current printer had a scan feature but I found out I was wrong.  I definitely need to get a new one.  Given the amount of devices we have, this is ideal since it is wireless, we can print from our smartphone or tablet virtually from anywhere.  This includes being out of the home!  If your child is at school, he can send a photo or assignment directly to the printer and it will be waiting for him when he arrives home by simply sending an e-mail.  Now that is really cool!  If you have a college bound student, what better way then to surprise him or her on any day with a special message or picture delivered right to their dorm room.


 


Back to school supplies also means printer ink.  For me, running out of ink or getting low on ink is almost the equivalent of running out of toilet paper.  It's a must have in our house especially when you have three younger ones and a college student.  Since I'm looking at the HP Printer, I have to stock up on the HP XL Ink Cartridges. These cartridges fit in the printers just like the normal cartridges and you save up to 40% in printing and we all are looking to pinch pennies.

I have the clothing bought, the school supplies and now I just have to head out to Walmart to pick up the technology and I know my children will have no objections!  Are you done shopping or are you in the market for a super cool new HP laptop and/or printer?  As a way to help you get ready, you can enter to win a $25 Walmart gift card!

The The HP Midnight Black Pavilion DV-6-7029wm Laptop PC would really help my son for the new school year. He's in high school and really needs a laptop. Up until recently, he used our desktop at home, but he's really in need of a laptop to be able to use it at school too.

I think the HP DeskJet 3522 Smartphone and Tablet Wireless Inkjet Multifunction Printer would be a great choice- being wireless more than one person can use it and that cuts down on alot of arguments :)Papers can be done, notes carried along this product can do so much. I would have said the laptop (I LOVE HP) but the printer can be shared.

The HP Midnight Black Pavilion DV-6-7029wm Laptop PC.

We only have one computer in the house which is not good because i'm back in college, my son is now in HS, my daughter is in college and my youngest is in grade school.

They are constantly arguing over the amount of time each other spends on the computer. Not to mention it's slow, outdated (dell dimension desktop 2350, about 10 years old) and it doesn't have enough space to download any programs.
