My new HP Spectre has been a crucial tool I turn to to create marketing imagery and tackling emails. The Spectre is probably one of my favorite PC systems as it’s able to process multiple programs at any given time.

So, if you find that there’s just too much on your plate, take my advice: ask for forgiveness and reduce the workload!
