Flowers – NO, gourmet chocolate – NO, spa day – NO, a pair of Christian Louboutin’s – aaahhhhh..ummmm, NO, not this time. What I want for Valentine’s Day is the uber chic HP Mini Vivienne Tam Edition notebook clutch. Not only is the new HP Vivienne Tam digital clutch an obsession, it’s a necessity.

Trying to run a start up business as a single mom of 2 boys, and still keep our household running is a challenge in itself and a juggling act. I have to split my time with my teenage son who needs to do homework and assignments, and my 5 year old who practices online spelling and reading games, on our old laptop which doesn’t work unless it’s plugged in because the battery is shot.

Having to make choices between a new computer and saving $$ to buy my son his high school class ring and prom tickets is not ideal, but it is a sacrifice I have to make as a mother. This HP would be an immense help to my plight.

Many tech companies have made feeble attempts at styling up notebooks, but none have come remotely close in my book. HP is  now the heavyweight champs and pioneers of “fashion meets technology” in the notebook category.

Bringing technology to the runway was absolutely genius, and the Vivienne Tam design is sleek, feminine, and a must have for all fashionistas. With a carry tote and scarf to match, the folks developing the products at HP have shown brilliance in recognizing and appealing to the consumer who is holding the purse strings in this troubled economy – women (and more specifically, MOMS 😉 )

The notebook itself retails for $699.99, the full bundle with carry tote and scarf is on sale now through Valentine’s Day for $799.99 (regularly $899.99) and you can get it at HP – HP Mini Vivienne Tam Edition
