HP Envy 20 TouchSmart review

If you’re gift shopping and looking for an HP Envy 20 TouchSmart review, this is the post for you.

We’re all about to share gifts with our friends and family for the upcoming holiday, and over the next few weeks, I’ll be working with HP on a fun program intended to highlight some of the amazing products and gifts available from HP and Snapfish!

For those of you on Pinterest, be sure to check out my Holiday Crafts and Holiday Gift Ideas boards.

I also wanted to share my HP Envy 20 TouchSmart review with you. The HP ENVY 20-d030 TouchSmart All-in-One Desktop PC and HP Portable Bluetooth Speaker are both amazing new products from HP.

I have actually had an HP TouchSmart PC for a couple of years, so this line was not unfamiliar to me. I was not sure what kind of improvements had been made, but I was definitely pleasantly surprised.

HP Portable Bluetooth Speaker

HP Envy 20 TouchSmart Review

Wow, what an upgrade! From a purely aesthetic perspective, the HP Envy 20 PC is so much more sleek and attractive than my older HP TouchSmart.

I also love how bright, clear, and beautiful the screen is on this computer. Not to mention, the touch screen is incredibly responsive, which is huge for me. Evan loves using the touch screen to draw, and with so many touch enabled devices these days, I find myself going to the screen quite a bit too.

This computer is also lightning fast and operates smoothly even with my Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom running.

I’m so excited to continue testing this PC over the coming weeks and months!

My Impressions

Well, the portability of this unit is so convenient. Once again, the design on this product is lovely, and I don’t mind putting it front and center in the room because it looks so nice.

The most important consideration, how does it sound? I was quite shocked at the quality of sound that eminates from this little speaker. It is really an incredible little piece of technology, and definitely an amazing accessory to any HP PC.
