I am super excited that I get to share with you what I have been playing with for weeks now. The all new HP Envy AMD FX driven laptop has set my world on digital fire. I was lucky enough to be able to get my hands of the #AMDFX APU – HP Envy Touchsmart Laptop. This beast has taken over as my primary PC. You may ask, how many PC’s do you use, three. I was using a desktop tower, then a small laptop, or a small Android tablet.


Time to Upgrade

The kind folks over at Best Buy upgraded me with the HP Envy Laptop. This machine has one of the fasted AMD processors on the market.

When you are looking for a notebook, the AMD FX Special Edition APU will provide you with unbelievable performance, gaming and productivity. Plus, with the new FX APU powered notebook, be unbeatable and experience the processing power of 10 compute cores (4 CPU + 6 GPU)


With all this power I can work and play at the same time. For-instance I can stream a movie or TV show while working online or playing a game.

The HP Envy TouchSmart 15.6” touch screen laptop makes multitasking a breeze so you can spend more time with your family! The Quick AMD FX series processor is great for daily tasks such as managing your personal life or streaming movies or videos and provides great video quality for gaming or catching up on your favorite youtube videos.
