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

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Intel.

Let’s face it, life is busy. We, or maybe I should say “I” feel like I am always running around with my family just hoping to get everything I need to get done every single day. As a mom of 2 busy little boys, a wife, a recipe developer, website author and new cookbook writer, it is so very important for me to multi-task and use wise time management otherwise I am in big trouble.

I find it helpful to write down my responsibilities each week on paper so I can see them along with having family meetings so we are all on the same page then try to multi-task every chance I get.

When I come across things that make my life easier….and faster I am all ears.

I was selected by BlogHer and Intel to review a new computer powered by the Intel® Corei5 processor with Turbo Boost Technology that allows me to get more done in less time. Talk about excitement when I heard those words! The laptop is beautiful. I quickly opened the box and set it up all by myself. For someone who knows the bare minimum about running computers, I must say I was relieved how easy it was to get started.

An Intel® wireless display (akaWiDi) adaptor was also sent that allows me to use my HDTV a monitor. How cool is that? I can work on my blog or type recipes on the big screen in my living room. I can NOT wait to get playing on this new computer. Stay tuned to hear more about my experience!

    I spend my time working… I buy storage units at auctions and sell my finds on eBay and craigslist. As a stay-at-home mom it’s the way I make extra money for my family. When I’m not doing that, I like to visit blogs and chit-chat on Facebook. ๐Ÿ™‚
