Can Your Computer Keep Up With You?

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Intel.
It was like Christmas morning: opening my brand new computer (courtesy of BlogHer) that is powered by the Intel® Core™ i5 processor, complete with Turbo Boost Technology and an Intel® Wireless Display (aka WiDi) adaptor!
IMG_0777


There are 3 main components that I love about the Intel® Core™ i5 processor: 
  1. Hyper-Threading Technology
  2. Turbo Boost Technology
  3. WiDi adaptor & Intel HD graphics
IMG_0778


What does all this mean?…Let me simplify.

I am a multi-tasker. On any given day, you will find me instant messaging with friends, downloading pictures, checking email, blogging, checking bank accounts, logging into Facebook, etc.- simultaneously. IMG_0812
The more applications that I have open, the slower my computer runs, and the higher my blood pressure boils. Not good. If Mama aint happy, aint nobody happy.
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology◊2
Features four-way multi-task processing that allows each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time, delivering the performance you need for smart multitasking. You and your PC won't be slowed down, regardless of how many applications you have open at once. (Intel®)
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology◊1
Automatically speeds up your processor when your PC needs extra performance. (Intel®)
So, in other words---NO WAITING! NO slow apps. I can be doing 10 different tasks at once, all with super fast speed. It literally took me one quick hour to download 5 YEARS worth of pictures and videos to my new computer hard drive. IMG_4986This processor is FAAAAAST! I love it.

…not to mention the WiDi adaptor and ability to use my HDTV as a monitor!
IMG_0815


Check it out!

Intel® Core™ i5 processor with WiDi & Netgear Push 2 TV Adapter from suz steece on Vimeo.


Super easy to set up! Click here for specific instructions.
IMG_4976


My husband REALLY loves the WiDi feature because he is able to watch sports games via internet that are not broadcast on our local TV channels. Just this week, Uncle Ed came over to watch the Minnesota Timberwolves game with Joe.IMG_4998


And the Intel® HD graphics are amazing! Such a clear picture.
IMG_0816
Intel® HD Graphics◊3
Intel® HD Graphics provides superb visual performance for sharper images, richer color, and life-like audio and video.◊3 Watch movies and Internet videos in high-definition, play popular game titles, and get full support for Microsoft Windows* 7. It's all built in; no need for an extra add-in video card. (Intel®)
Do more faster. Get a smart Intel® processor inside in your next PC.
This new processor has definitely allowed me to free up my life and spend more time doing the things that I truly love like playing with my hubby and kids.

This would be WAY too much for my brian. But, my hubby I am sure could use it for his church things, bills, different accounts we have to keep up with, church website, job and accounting things, etc.

A fast computer would let me download music for the kids to dance to while uploading pictures from the day, all while instant messaging and checking out what is going on in the land of facebook. AHHHHH life would be good!

Christie said...

Oh my! I could so use more speed on my computer! Outside the home full time job, nurse to my husband and his long-term illness, Grammie to my sweet 9 mo old twin granddaughters...wow, it boggles my mind to think of all I could accomplish with a computer with all those amenities. From paying bills, keeping track of medical charts, records, etc to household organization and recordkeeping AND keeping up with photos and videos of our darlin's. This would be a dream come true.

Jenny D said...

I'd love some more time with my husband!

Michelle said...

I would be able to put together our picture books so much faster. As much as I love the hourglass, I would be oh-so-happy to never see it again!

Anonymous said...

I would love this. Like you I rely a lot on my multi-tasking skills and always have several applications open. This drives my husband crazy because it slows down the computer. For both of our sanity levels, this would bring a lot of peace. :-)

LStewart said...

A faster computer would come in handy when trying to process photos so I can get them loaded to produce hardcover books for family members. It's hard to keep up with making books as quick as the boys are growing so anything to reduce time spent processing the photos for upload is a plus in my book!

Pictures, pictures, pictures!! We really need the brain and brawn of this computer! Like you, I do everything on the computer on a daily basis.
But I'd really like to get this for my husband. His computer is very old and will no longer take the recovery disks to reformat it. (It's OLD!) It has recently begun shutting down every few minutes and I fear its days are numbered. We can't afford to replace it so I'd really love to give him this computer.

I asked so much of my last computer, it couldn't keep up and died! I do love the fact that this new computer can do so many things at once. I usually am working on lesson plans, downloading pics, facebooking, and lots of other things. I need a computer that can keep up and the new Intel processor seems to fit the bill!

Oh, that would be fabulous! Both of our laptops went kaput over a year ago so we've been working off an old desktop that is pretty slow.

If I had a new, fast computer like that? Oh, I'd be in heaven! I take tons of pictures and scrapbooking and it takes FOREVER to organize all that stuff. It's frustrating.

Al said...

I'm a multitasker so I always have a million and a half applications going at one time on my computer and most of the time spent on that is praying none of them will suddenly freeze on me. I honestly can't live without all my electronics, whether it's my computer, phone, or ipod working at lightspeed at a constant rate. So a faster computer would be amazing!

I would love to have more time. I have an older computer that takes forever to boot up and then downloading is another story...or should I say many stories by the time it finally downloads. I love music and on my old computer that is impossible. What life would be like with a real working computer. !!!!!

The possibilities are endless! But, a faster computer for me would mean quicker searches of multiple websites for dinner ideas! ;)

I would love to be able to upload pictures faster. Also would enjoy being able to watch videos without so much delay

A faster computer would mean that my kids could play their preschool math games without getting the "low memory" error. It would be great. God Bless.
THANKS for the AWESOME GIVEAWAY!!!

It would be so nice if I could edit pics and videos without EVERYTHING slowing down!

Diana said...

I would be able to upload and edit my photos to my blog in a flash! And since I'm a designer, I'd be so easy to use my software and edit things quickly!

Tripp Baby said...

with a faster computer i could upload the pics of my twins, while checking my bank, working on my frontier, talking with friends..and enjoying watching my twins play!

A faster computer processor could save my current computer until I can afford to upgrade. Right now, its far too slow and I'm afraid to have too many things open at once.

I am also a multi-tasker. I would love a faster computer. I would love to be able to work with photos faster. I have a huge backlog. My computer is so slow!! Thanks for sharing how great your new one is with us.

A faster computer might just keep up with my typing!

Linda Gilliam said...

WOW, you sure have a busy life with those beautiful children,multi-tasking I'm sure is your middle name!
I would just CHEER to get a faster laptop to keep up with my six grandsons and soon to be FIRST ever granddaughter! She'll be here on Dec. 21st, we're so excited, with that gift certificate toward a faster laptop, my pics of her would be ZINGING to friends and family! Thank you for the opportunity and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

A faster processor and many I could enter my blogs. By the way on the slim chance I win the computer I am coming back to you to help me set up the tv as a monitor.

A faster computer would mean maybe I could get to bed at a decent time. :) No more staying up until 2 a.m. trying to get pictures to load to my blog!

I love having many different things open at once, so that would be very nice for me.

April said...

A faster computer would mean faster blogging, faster bill paying, faster surfing, faster shopping!!

OneGirl said...

A faster computer would mean that, first off, I HAVE computer. :) But it would help me to get school done faster.

Sandyhere said...

It would mean that the computer could handle my multitudes of open tab on Firefox and not crash when I push it too hard. LOL I have so many things going on at home and when I am on the computer I am cramming to get everything done at once and it stresses my computer and the DSL connection it is hooked to. A faster Processor would eliminate the lag time and help me to move between tabs to get all the information I need faster and without losing data in a crash or restart. It would also let me enjoy streaming videos without the pauses and the buffering. :) That would be absolutely wonderful!!

A faster computer would help so much. I have twins and my computer is soo slow and old. I pay bills, create cards, write on my blog, send pictures to family and soo much more on my computer and it takes forever right now!!! Maybe Santa will bring me a new computer.

Lindsey @ I Run in Heels said...

A faster computer would allow me to blog more, be a lot less stressed waiting on programs to load, not worry about my computer overheating, and multitask like you wouldn't believe.

I blogged about it @ http://therichardfamily5.blogspot.com

Winning a laptop made from the computer gods would help me with my plan to go back to school and follow my path to becoming a photographer. Could you imagine all the things you could do with a super computer? Thank you!

Erin said...

a faster computer processor means that i would get much more done faster! sometimes we all want to jump out the window w things going slow... i need to spend much less time on the computer!

Ness said...

My computer totally anoys me. It can't keep up...

I'm a multi tasker...so a faster computer would enable me to do homework, find a recipe, check email, update facebook and pay a do my online banking all at once.

My computer can't keep up.

I'm a multi tasker. I'm on the run and super busy so I need a computer that can email, update facebook, online banking, find a recipe and research a homework problem all at the same time!
