Stylish and Functional Laptops for Moms


After having children my work priorities drastically shifted. I knew I wanted to work, but I realized that this didn't have to include working from a traditional office. Now, my office is a coffeeshop or the library - or really where ever I can find wifi! Since I am always traveling with laptop I have been thinking about upgrading my MacBook and trading it in for a sleeker and lighter model. At a recent event hosted by Engadget, a Web magazine with obsessive daily coverage of everything new in gadgets and consumer electronics, I had a chance to check out some new laptops and learn more about what to look for when shopping for one.

Led by Dana Wollman, Senior Reviews Editor at Engadget, I learned more about the HP Envy 14 Spectre, the ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A and the 15-inch Samsung Series 9.

As a reviews editor, Dana gets the chance to test out these sleeks models and pointed out some of its key features. She noted that women look for various features - style being one of the top attributes - and luckily there are many models on the market that look good and function very well. Here are some of models that I had a chance to check out:


HP Envy 14 Spectre 


  • One of the 14-inch Ultrabooks to hit the market
  • Glass coated laptop
  • Roomy keyboard
  • 5.30 hour battery life
  • Comes with complimentary versions of Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 and Premiere Elements 10
