If you’ve been reading me for a while, you know I happen to love shopping at Best Buy. Whenever we’re in the market for new computers, electronics, and even major appliances, we’ve found Best Buy to have the best bang for our buck.

They also tend to be leaders in having cool new stuff to check out, like this new AMD FX APU – HP Envy TouchSmart Laptop:


Some days I wish I hadn’t moved back over to a desktop PC vs. a laptop. I really miss having a laptop, if nothing else for the mobility of it and not being subjected to park my butt at a table or desk. The idea of relaxing on the couch and still getting important stuff done is so tempting.

Don’t get me wrong – my desktop happens to be an HP Envy SmartTouch All-In-One, so I love it, but I might have to get it a little brother or sister companion by getting one of these laptops for those times when I want to be versatile or mobile.

My previous laptops have been HP as well – in fact, Princess Nagger got them as hand-me-downs whenever I’d upgrade myself. There have been times she’s had the most recent two set up side by side on the dining room table, Skypeing with her friends on one, while playing Minecraft or Animal Jam with them on the other.

Amazing how playing with your friends has become so space-age-y.

Do you prefer a desktop or laptop?
