#PinTheHalls with HP and Snapfish plus GIVEAWAY

I was chosen to partner with HP and Snapfish for their #PintheHalls campaign this Holiday Season to check out some great products from both of the companies. We were sent a “toy chest” of items from from HP and Snapfish to check out. I will also be doing a giveaway for one of their newest products (at the bottom of this post).

It has been several years since the Angry Family got a new computer in the household. You can imagine the excitement in our house when we opened the box.

We got two awesome packages in the mail from HP. The first package was the HP ENVY 20 TouchSmart All-in-One Desktop PC.

HP ENVY 20 TouchSmart AiO Desktop PCThe HP ENVY 20 TouchSmart All-in-One Desktop PC is optimized for Windows 8. My husband was anxious to test out the desktop because he had not used Windows 8 yet. He is also a huge techie and loves new electronics. The kid has been attached to the computer for three days now. He is OBSESSED. He plays games on it, and watches movies. I have to admit that I haven’t used a Windows-based system in years, except for the crappy Windows XP computer that I use at work. My husband has Windows 7 on his computer but I get frustrated every time I try to use it.

It has the following features {for the techie computer people who want to know all of that stuff}:

  • Intel® Core™ i3-3220 (3.3 GHz )
  • Windows 8 or other operating systems available
  • Go beyond the keyboard and mouse to get more from Windows 8. Swipe and tap using all 10 fingers on the HD display. It gives “hands on” a whole new meaning.
  • With optional ExpressCache, you’ll enjoy fast boot-up and application start times so you can get going in a flash.
  • With an optional solid-state drive, the HP ENVY 20 TouchSmart is ready to go when you are. And it delivers outstanding reliability, day after day
  • Safe space in style with a sleek, all-in-one design featuring an edge-to-edge glass display.
  • Set up your HP ENVY 20 TouchSmart with as little as one wire. No clutter, no mess, no stress.
  • Enjoy the view on the 20-inch diagonal HD screen with up to a 30° tilt.
  • Mount your HP ENVY 20 TouchSmart on a wall. Design your room your way.
  • Control your music, videos and photo slide shows remotely from a smartphone or tablet. Enjoy the wireless freedom and control of HP Connected Remote.
  • Sync photos across your PC, smartphone, and tablet. Crop, rotate, add captions, and more. Then share in seconds with friends and family through your social networks. HP Connected Photo. Picture the fun.
  • Sometimes only a face-to-face conversation will do. With the HP TrueVision HD webcam, you’ll always come off looking your best. Even in low light.
  • With Beats Audio™ and an optional subwoofer, the HP ENVY 20 TouchSmart is designed for the best-sounding, richest audio available on a PC; it sounds as amazing as it looks.

While my husband and son use the HP Envy 20 TouchSmart All-in-One for web browsing, games, and movie watching, I used it for photo-editing and social media, of course. The app-based system on Windows 8 was great for viewing sites like Twitter and Facebook, but Pinterest was AMAZING on it. Just imagine “pinning” things on a touch screen. It was way too much fun!

Of course, Pinterest is even more fun during the “Holidays” time of the year. I’m constantly searching Pinterest online for gift ideas, holiday decor, party inspirations, family time, arts & crafts. There is nothing better than showing up at that Holiday Cookie Party with an amazing plate of cookies, with a recipe that no one has ever seen before. I call that a “Pinterest Win”!

I’ve created two boards on Pinterest with featured items from HP and Snapfish for the Holiday Season. HP’s Holiday Headquarters offers a complete destination for you to create an unlimited array of one-of-a-kind printables-including photo cards, festive decorations, and DIY gifts.

Nothing better than some great tunes, and this  HP Portable Bluetooth Speaker is great for streaming music throughout the house.

HP Portable Bluetooth Speaker

I immediately opened the HP Portable Bluetooth Speaker when it arrived and set it up within minutes. I synced it with my iPhone. I use a ton of music apps on my phone plus my playlists that I have created. It is nice to be able to stream the music while I’m working, cleaning, or just hanging out. My son also loved using the speaker for an impromptu dance party in our family room while he was home sick.

I was also given credits and a HP Holiday Value Pack from Snapfish. I cannot wait to make some photo gifts online and show them off. Also, Snapfish’s print at home feature will be great for some “Holiday Printables” for my son. I might even be ambitious and make a calendar or two…you know with all of that spare time I have…
