Holy crap this thing is sexy. Its a 13 inch HP Pavilion laptop, that flips to become a 13.3″ tablet. I finally broke and got a decent computer. This this is blisteringly fast with the web. It can open large files for graphics and design. It even has a centered track pad (which I am super anal about). It is so lightweight. I absolutely love it.
The hard drive can be upgraded, which is good because I have a spare 960gb Sandisk ultra SSD. I need to a get a mini adapter for it though. I already have Ubuntu Linux running of a micro USB drive. It is the first modern PC I have had in 4 years!
The novelty of being able to blog at high speed is going to take a while to wear off… :)
“Everything ends” said Kat.
The assembled Mooners turned to Kat.
“Everything ends” she repeated. “Nai always said that. Everything ends, everyone moves on, people come and go.”
“What do we do now?” asked Beth.
“Stay on the lookout for a camel with Nai and a sombrero wearing Japanese man on the back” sighed Reala.
I got this Phablet last year, and its speed, memory, screen and power put both my tablet and and laptop to shame. It became a default item for web use for me.
At £115 quid its one of the few cheap purchases I have made that has really worked out. I say cheap, bare in mind I got it June 2015, and it has a true 5.5-inch 1080p HD screen with an octa core processor, an SD card slot and 2gb of ram. At the time it was more powerful that all of the PCs and iPads in the office at work. It still is I imagine. Its got a pretty decent back camera too.
Its fantastic for WordPress, social media and note taking (I am an Evernote whore!). The camera is great for snapping the dogs and photographing and cropping my doodles.
I have not yet seen any lag on it. It multi tasks superbly. Over a year later and I have no intention of upgrading any time soon.
If you are in the market for bloggers phablet, I would highly recommend it, as I cannot see anything better in that price bracket. Or even a bit above that price bracket for that matter…

“It feels like a mini Armageddon Nai not being here” said Beth.
“Whats Armageddon mean?” asked Crumpet.
“You don’t know what Armageddon means?” asked Pru incredulously.
“No” said Crumpet, a little offended. “It’s not like its the end of the world or anything…”
