The Intel® Core™ i5 processor Giveaway!

BlogHer Reviewer

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Intel.

Having a brand new laptop has been so great! I am thrilled with the speed and how this new processor with the Intel chip makes my blogging life easier. You know how it is when a computer can’t keep up?! That’s not a problem with my fancy new machine.

My little office nook gets a good workout every single day! You can see here that it’s not picture perfect all the time. There’s work to be done. :)

As I mentioned, I do a lot of photo editing. That is a breeze and the speed is lightening fast. Connection speed is great, as well as getting things done in a timely manner. I also use my computer to store spreadsheets, do Word documents and definitely needed the storage space for my thousands of pics that I have saved. Those pics need lots of room to spread out.

I also do some room consultations and need to be able to move around the web, gathering pics and getting ideas saved. I can open lots of windows and switch back and forth with the sweep of my mouse. I love that this computer has twice the memory that my little netbook has. It’s definitely going to keep me on task with blogging and other areas of my life.

This cool feature would be great to use for movies, checking out family pics online.  Can you imagine sharing your family photos on a big screen like this?

Now, after sharing how the laptop has improved my work life balance, you know the great news!  I’ll be giving away a $250 Best Buy giftcard for ONE of my readers. I’m so excited to share this with all of you and can’t wait to see someone else benefit from the giveaway.

YES, you can sign up AGAIN, even if you signed up on the 1st giveaway post.  Double your chances!!

I totally and completely love my new laptop!

Here is some more info on the Intel Core processor family. Visit Intel for more information:

  • Smarter processors that deliver extra performance whenever you need it, and increased energy efficiency when you don’t.
  • 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

This is a sponsored post with BlogHer and you’ve already heard the GREAT news! I will be giving away a $250 giftcard to Best Buy for one of YOU and there are other chances to win on the round-up page below. Be sure and sign up at all of them to maximize your chances.

  18. A Intel Core processor laptop would help my day to day life because my computer has records of everything and it helps to have a laptop to carry everything in one place.

  19. My morning tasks are never done because my computer takes forever to do anything and opening more than one thing at a time just makes it worse. An Intel processor would make my morning tasks go so much quicker I could get way more done and have more time just to browse and read blogs…;-)

  20. it will help me because my programs will not get bogged down and save me time

  23. Shawna OBrien says:

    The older I get, the more I want a computer that is turbo charged, just seems like a natural equation: me slow down, you go faster! So bring it on, I need a turbo boost and i5 (it is i5, right? …after working on speed, I need to work on my memory)…..
