Summer is here and while I’d like to spend all my time outside enjoying the warm weather, I still have work to do. But who says I can’t take my work outside? If I have the right tools, like a cool 17″ HP Pavilion notebook from HSN, then I can bend the summer work rules and head outside. Which is exactly what I’ve done!

Note: I received this gorgeous red 17″ HP Pavilion note from HSN. I have used it for the last few weeks and I’ve fallen in love with it.

Bend The Summer Rules

The 17″ HP Pavilion is the perfect notebook for working outside in the summer. I like to have a large screen because I am often looking at 2 documents at once and there is enough room to do that with a 17″ screen. And it’s still light enough for me to carry around.

The Intel Quad-Core processor means it can keep up with all my tabs and documents that I have open at the same time. With 8GB of Ram, software runs smoothly and quickly and the 1TB hard drive leaves plenty of room for all my family photos and videos.

Bang & Olufsen audio built-in.

When you are working outside in the summer, you MUST have good summer tunes. This notebook has Bang & Olufsen audio built-in which means my summer tunes sound awesome!

Getting set up to work on my back deck on a beautiful summer morning. I like to work outside in the early morning before the heat of the day.

At $699.95 with free shipping, this colorful, powerful and simple to use notebook is irresistible in my book. HSN offers Flex Pay which means you can break the cost of the laptop into several payments. You do not need an HSN credit card to use Flex Pay either. You get the laptop right away and pay for it in 6 payments.

FREE Upgrade to Windows 10 when it is released

Free Windows 10 Upgrade (when available.)

Yep, that is right. I said  Free! Windows 10 is being released on July 30, 2015. I have tested it out for a few months and I am in LOVE with it. And here is why:

The start menu is back. Windows 10 on your laptop has a start menu in the lower left right where you want it to be. When you click it, you have all your apps and programs available and you can customize it so it works how you work.

Multiple desktops. I have a desktop set up for work and play. When I’m blogging, I have certain programs I use and when I’m playing, I don’t want to see all that. So now, I can easily toggle between my two worlds.

Notifications in one place. This makes it so easy to see your notifications. Just slide your finger from the right edge and all your notifications are there. You also have access to some of the settings you use often.

Better battery life. Win 10 was designed to conserve power so you will get better battery life from your laptop. Always good news!

The chair was my Mother’s Day present and this is where you’ll find me many mornings.

And my favorite feature of Win 10?

CORTANA! Yes, I love that I can just talk to my computer to search and find the information I need. My secret tech dream has always been to not have to touch my keyboard. I want to be able to just talk to my computer and have it do everything.

Cortana isn’t quite ready to take over my entire process, but I’m using it when I can and it’s not only fun, but very useful. I find I can talk faster than I can type. My brain has always worked faster than my fingers. So now I use Cortana as much as I can.

So now you have all the reasons to buy one of these colorful laptops. Which color will you be choosing? I was sent the red and it’s a beautiful shade of red. I can only image the other four colors are just as beautiful.

Even when I sprain my ankle and I’m all wrapped up, I work outside.
