I recently found myself stuck in a rut, but after spending 3 weeks in Europe, I felt renewed, invigorated and inspired. Traveling works wonders for the soul. Upon my return, I vowed to be more productive with my time and think that my old laptop was to blame for my lack of productivity. It was slow and cumbersome, a pain to use and travel with. I only used it to do what I needed to do, and that was that.

HP's new Spectre laptop entered my life at the most perfect time. I was in the market for a new laptop and the Spectre fit the bill in terms of what I was looking for. It really was love at first sight. From the moment it arrived, and me opening the box, I felt the butterflies and excitement. I was a little apprehensive to touch it, being so enamored by its beautiful design. On the outside, the Spectre is unlike anything I had ever seen before. Its unique dark grey color with rose gold details set it apart and features HP's new minimalist logo design. The modern architectural details make it not just a piece of technology, but an elevated decor element in my home.

I was immediately drawn to how sleek and lightweight the HP Spectre is. As the world's thinnest laptop at 10.4mm in thickness and weighing in at just 2.45 pounds, don't let its size fool you. Despite its compact size, the featherweight 13" laptop is just as impressive on the inside as it is on the exterior. One of the most important features to me is its battery life. Often times, I'm working outside my home, at a local coffee shop, park, plane, etc., where power outlets are few and far between. I love that the Spectre can last up to 9 hours on a single charge.

Needless to say, I'm absolutely smitten by my new HP Spectre. I always look forward to using it and know that because I'm using something I love, I'll become more productive as well. I'll be sharing more of my experience with the HP Spectre as I get acclimated with its multitude of features in the coming weeks.
