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.

    I’d use the GC towards getting a new laptop because my current one is to slow and I’d like my laptop to make my life easier.

    I would get the “Asus – Eee PC Netbook Intel® Atom™ Processor 10.1″ Display 1GB Memory 160GB Hard Drive – Midnight Blue” Model: 1005HAB-RBLU005S SKU: 9705433 – $249.99

    The motherboard on my current computer is going out and I’d love to replace it with a ASUS netbook.

    If I were to win the Best Buy gift Card, I would but Christmas or birthday gifts for my family…dvd’s and video games, most likely.

    I would use it towards a new computer for Dev her netbook is crapping out and she is never home to be tied to the desktop.

    Turbo boost = faster processor – has to be faster than the 6 year old desk top I am using. Will make my internet time a lot enjoyable.

    I need a netbook so it would go towards that, OR, I would give it to hubby for a birthday present and I am guessing he would get a PowerMat or some other type of convenient charger, and a video game or two.

  7. Aisling

    It’s a toss-up right now – I’d buy a Kindle or an iPod Touch. mcgillrmcgill(at)charter(dot)net
