AMD FX Special Edition APU Notebook at Best Buy

Do you know a PC gamer? I do. It’s my youngest brother and you should see his setup! My boys love getting together with him and you can see their eyes pop open as they watch him strategize and battle his way through the afternoon. It takes a special computer to be able to handle those graphics and mega-power it takes to run.

A computer like the AMD FX Special Edition APU notebook made by HP. He does not have a touch screen, but I know would love one. They are soooo cool and I know would make my brother’s experience even better.


Here are some of the awesome features on this laptop:

The HP Envy TouchSmart 15.6” touch screen for multi-tasking and to have a little fun.  oh yeah.

The Quick AMD FX series processor for streaming movies, playing games or watching videos on  YouTube. Very important at our house!

The AMD FX Special Edition APU introduces mobile systems with AMD’s highest performing APUs, exclusive at Best Buy. Unbelievable performance and productivity which makes it the Ultimate Gaming Notebook. My boys would be so happy!

Processing power of 10 compute cores (4 CPU + 6 GPU)! WOW!

Award Winning Graphics. The most important feature for a gamer, right?

Balanced Guru Organic Skin Care Giveaway ~ 3 Winners!

Organic is not just something that we should put into our mouths. Everything that touches our skin – soap, makeup, lotions – all gets absorbed into our body too. When I shop skincare I only look for products with real ingredients – just like at the grocery store. Today I’m happy to introduce a company that is new on my list to buy from, only offering pure choices to stock up your bathroom cabinets.

Balanced Guru it is called and I’m going to tell you what is in a variety of products that I received so that you may see that there is a big contrast when straying from the norm….much healthier and you can feel the difference.
