Through all my years of growing up playing video games, or games on the computer, or at the arcade, I never imagined I would have a Touch Screen Based computer like the HP Envy Touchsmart Laptop to use in my household.
Now let me tell you, I have been around everything gaming all my life, and I can honestly say, one of the coolest features you can have in any game, is one that is touch screen compatible. We have played games on our phones and tablets for years, why not on our computers with a touch screen as well? Now, I will let you all in on a little secret as well, shhhh…. Don’t tell anyone (well you can) but you can use this for business related items too. Yep, you heard it from me. Now, I didn’t go and blow your mind did I? Probably not, but I wanted to make the point, that while the processor and the video enhancements have been marketed for gaming, this is one fine computer to do business or schoolwork on too.

I simply love the touch screen capabilities, I love the processing power that it has, it has an ample sized hard drive for most individuals, and if you love gaming, or just need a new computer that can do that and more, this is one you should definitely check out. Keep in mind that this does not have a CD/DVD drive built in, I am honest with all my reviews, and while a majority of things that you can obtain, or purchase from the internet allow downloadable content. If you own material on your own CD/DVD discs, you will need to have an external CD/DVD drive, or purchase one, but don’t worry, Best Buy has those here as well.
You can visit here to find out even more about what is included with it, and the features that it carries. Did you know you can get free shipping on orders $35 and up from Best Buy, and free store pick-up in as little as 45 minutes or less in most cases? So what is stopping you today from picking this up for yourself, or grabbing it as a gift idea for a family member, or that young one off to college?
