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

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.

    I would use the GC to help pay for the new camera I want! It would not cover all of the cost, but it would help a lot!

    I have so many things on my Best Buy list it would be hard to decide. I think maybe a new external HD would be at the top.

    With the $250 gift card I will probably be looking at a netbook or maybe a new camera…I love to browse in Best Buy

    This would go towards replacing my TV. Though functioning, everything on the right side is shaded purple. I love purple, so maybe this shouldn’t bother me, but it does.

    This would go towards a new TV, getting tired of the purple people on the right side of the screen.

    I would buy a tv stand and then a tv. We still don’t have one and it’s annoying to have to watch things on a computer monitor!

    Honestly, the first thing I would buy would be a brand spanking new Blu-Ray DVD surround sound! Our tv got hit by lightning this past summer so we had to get a new one – our first ever flat screen. I love it so much (don’t know why we didn’t buy one sooner!) and am dying to see what BluRay looks like on it.
