Judie Lipsett from Gear Diary wasted no time shipping the HP Magic packages across the country. The incredible shipment arrived today. My husband signed for the shipment.
I couldn't wait for the end of my work day. I took a couple hours vacation. After rushing home, I found myself awe-struck seeing the boxes really there in front of me. Soon, however, curiosity got the better of me and I started investigating.
Because the temperature is in the 20's (Fahrenheit, Celsius would be -0) and the boxes had been in the delivery truck most of the day and were still quite cold, I only took the laptops out of the box to look at them.
How could I resist?
The packaging is very well done. I really like the "start here" sheet available when opening the boxes. After pointing out the features of the laptops to my husband, I sent him off to work.
Of course I couldn't stop there. Determining that the box had been in the house for a couple of hours, I just had to take a look at the HP TouchSmart.
The HP TouchSmart is, as would be expected, a bit heavy. However, again, the instructions are very clear on the proper handling and setup. In fact, setup was really quite simple.
I haven't opened everything as I want to maintain sealed packages for the donation.
Whatever the final destination of the other parts of the HP Magic package, the HP TouchSmart has certainly found a new home -- although its final positioning has yet to be determined.
There are still a lot of things I have to do to prepare for Christmas, notwithstanding the excitement of the short trip home by our daughter and her family. However, I expect that I will managed to make some time here and there to examine the packages a bit more closely while everything is spread out on my dining room table.
Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
