Intel Core i5 processor Review and Win a $250 Gift Card to Best Buy!

Reviews |

What fun it has been playing with my new Intel® Corei5 processor.  It really takes multi-tasking to  a new level.  I started using my new laptop to just update Picky Palate, then I started using the computer to store all of my photos and recipes.  It really is easy to pop back and forth to each window and put multi-tasking to good work! Each time I use my processor I find more reasons I love it.

My husband set up the Intel® wireless display (aka WiDi) so I could use my TV as a monitor and talk about cool!  I still get a kick out of seeing my website up on my television screen.  It’s quite impressive and comfortable to be able to sit on the couch and get my work done with my TV screen as the monitor.

Here is some information about the Intel Core i5 Processor.

  • The Intel Processor is a smart processor that delivers extra performance whenever you need it, and it increases energy efficiency when you don’t.
  • It features 4-way (and 8-way) multi-task processing that allows each core of your processor to work on two tasks at the same time that’s Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
  • It Automatically speeds up your processor when your PC needs extra performance-that’s Intel Turbo Boost Technology.
  • A stunning visual experience with Intel HD Graphics, available on select models of the Intel Core processor family.  Smart Speed.
  • Get more done faster with processors that are build for smart multi-tasking.
