Skinomi for the HP Envy x2

I am looking for a protective cover or case for the HP Envy x2 that I recently purchased. Pickings are few but I did find this skin which I have ordered, the Skinomi Tech Skin. I'll report back here when I get it as to the application and functionality when it arrives.  I actually purchase the Black version, not the clear.

So far, I am liking the HP Envy x2, although I am still getting used to Windows 8. I like some of the features but I am not yet used to the way the corner prompts pop up at times. Annoying still to me. We'll see if I can get used to it.

Kindle Fire case for $1 (plus $5 shipping)


OK, there seems to be several of these deals.

The first (and best) price is here, $1 plus $4.99 shipping for  total of $5.99.

  The second one (in case the first is sold out) is also a good price, it has a shipping charge but the total comes to $7.99. There seem to be several links to this deal.  But be careful, one deal has a variety of colors but also a variety of prices. So be careful, the price varies by color!

Nice price for 64GB Sandisk micro SD card

I am always on the look out for good prices on SD cards; my camera uses it and my old phone used it and now my new computer needs one (it is the HP Envy x2, it needs this because of the relatively small HD that is comes with).
BTW, I can do a review of this computer in a few weeks. I just got it and so far I am liking it. I got it at Staples (better price that Amazon), it was $599.
So Staples has them on sale this week for $59.99 which is off by $40 and I thought this was a good price. So I did a search, and found an even better price at Amazon!  It is only $50.92 there and eligible for free shipping. Of course the trade off is the wait (but it is usually just a day or two) if I order from Amazon.  Is the wait worth $9.07?  That's for you to decide.

I don't think I can live without this.....

OK, there are just some things that you see and you say, "Wow! I just gotta get that!" Yeah, well here is  one I don't think I can live without.

Think about a portable hard drive that contains all your stuff (1GB of stuff, that's a lot), that you can access from anywhere but you don't have to plug it into your laptop. Well it has arrived! Seagate has a wifi enabled portable hard drive.  I found it on Amazon and I think they have the lowest price.

OK, I think I am in lu-u-u-rve! Doesn't this sound great? There is a even good reviews (and more explanation) about it here and here (the second one rates it as a 4/5 stars). I did a quick internet search and Amazon does seem to have the best price (and free shipping). If you find a better price, feel free to leave a link in the comments.
