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.

  1. I’m such a geek – I just love new technology and my digital photography hobby is starting to overwhelm my current computer.

  2. holy stinkin cow! what a wonderful gift to give to my mama who desperately needs a new computer.

  3. Holly Edwards says:

    I don’t have a computer at home right now, so this would help me out SO much.

  4. I would love to win this laptop. I have been traveling lately and when I do, don’t have access to a computer, so a laptop would be ideal. Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. We need a new computer so bad, especially a laptop so we can tote it with us. Our computer is sooooooooo slow and just makes even the little tasks of everyday stuff (email, etc.) a lot less fun. Thanks for hosting this!
    -Jill D.

  6. I don’t have a laptop and would love one. I have to go to the office and use the old PC, away from the family. I think being with them and using a laptop would just be great!! Please select me!!! Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. Would love to win this laptop for son going to college! How wonderful for the giveaway chance. Thanks!~

  8. Since I started my blog in May, I have found it hard to keep up because with 2 teenage boys, I have to “schedule” time to use the computer! One is on the computer and the other is on Xbox Live so don’t load pictures and ruin his game!! I really could use a laptop to go anywhere in the house to blog!!

  9. My old laptop will be jealous as it reads this but it KNOWS I need a new one! Dave Ramsey would be proud of how quickly I could update budgets with a new laptop!

  10. I would love to have this computer to help me organize all my photos and learn photoshop -it would be wonderful to win :–)

  11. My laptop is old, so this new one would be nice! Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. My husband is starting up a new business and desperately needs a new computer! Thanks for the chance to win!

  13. Holy Giveaway!!! I would love to win one – my workstation doesn’t quite fit on my lap when I’m just cruising the net shopping and such. This would be a fantastic opportunity to win!!! Good Luck Everyone!

  14. This would be a great gift for my grandsons so they don’t have to share their Mom’s work computer.

  15. Rhoda I blogged about your giveaway for my readers too to get the chance to enter! Thanks for this giveaway! Here is the link:

  16. I’m a blogger with an old computer. Mama needs a new one to make life easier. I think blogging would be so much faster and less frustrating with a new computer.

  17. I would love to have a new computer! They have become one of my best entertainment in my old age!

  18. Getting a new laptop would make multitasking easier, as I could check email and my favorite blogs from any room in the house!

  19. Oooo, I could so use this at home and at work for continuing education. I could also use it for newletters and specials as well as the updating of the blog(s). Then I wouldn’t have to wait until I get home and kick someone else off of the computer.

  20. I would love to win this. Our family computer is about to die and with 3 kids needing to do homework on the computer each night, we seem to being homework forever.

  21. I have such trouble with my laptop…..I have waaaaaaay too many pics on it!!! I would LOVE a new one just to store pics!

  22. Luke's GiGi says:

    Woo Hoo! I get to enter again? Lovin it. It would love to use it to orgainze my life. Well, maybe that is too big of a feat but I would like to learn how to use it for my photography.

  23. I would love a new computer… I’m still running a fairly old Windows XP computer…It’s super slow, and really causing headaches when I try to upload pictures and build a better blog/etsy shop/network online. I have so many wonderful pictures because I’ve really started to pursue photography and Vintage goodies, but my computer holds me back from touching up these photos, editing them in programs, and putting them up for the world to see online. I have a terrible time getting all the new great blog tools and web publishing applications to run… I feel like my computer is holding me back from sharing a beautiful Handcrafted Gallery and Magic Vintage Menagerie with the rest of the World. A new computer would so help, as I’ve checked out the Intel 5 online, and it seems like a wonderfully stable technology (Intel’s always been stable), “crazy horsepower” system, that would streamline my Vintage and Handmade life!

  24. My aren’t you lucky getting a brand spankin’ new laptop to test drive! My biggest issues are always storage space and speed – I definitely attribute one issue to another…I spend so much time surfing the web and downloading inspiration pics that I then make my laptop working harder (and slower)…I’d love to give this one a spin!

  25. I don’t have twitter, so I posted about this on my blog!! Good luck everyone.

  26. It would be great to have a laptop, especially a brand new Intel laptop. The portability alone would be a super benefit to my blog and computer tasks.

  27. faster processing speed… I’m in.

    Happy Thanksgiving too!!!


  28. baltimoremom says:

    What a great giveaway. Would love to win! Thanks for the chance.

  29. I would love a new,faster computer! In fact, it is in my Christmas list!

  30. Oh boy! A new laptop would enable me to take more classes to finish my degree! Right now I am really spreading my classes out and having a new, faster, up to date computer would make taking online classes a possibility!!

  31. Oh Rhonda Sweetie….
    This is an easy one for me. A laptop, would be so great for me. It is the portability I need. One I could blog from my bed. I have been quite ill and have leg issues. They don’t allow me to spend as much time sitting at the computer to blog anymore. If I had a laptop, I could sit in bed, keeping the legs up, but still be able to blog. How great that would be for me. I truly miss the quality time I used to spend blogging with folks. In May, I got sick, losing most of my voice to speak, so I like blogging because people do not judge me. When I go out into the public, and I use my voice, people stare at me like I am an alien. I have even had sales people talk real loud to me, like they think I can’t hear, I can hear just fine, I just don’t have much of a speaking voice. When I blog, I can speak normal.

    Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to win a chance at a laptop. A dream come true for me. Any one of us will be SO darn lucky. Happy Holidays sweet friend…Sherry

  32. What a generous giveaway!

    • Sorry…posted before answering the question. This new computer would make our homeschooling so much easier. We fight over our computer.

  33. What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  34. I tweeted this giveaway as well @sceneofthegrime
    Thanks again!

  35. A new computer would be amazing! Mine is currently 3 years old = ancient in computer terms. I’m just learning photoshop so a fast processer would be fabulous.

  36. It would be so amazing to not be tethered to my kitchen table desktop anymore… or to have to share one computer with my sons anymore. 🙂

  37. Annette Taylor says:

    What a great giveaway!! Since my computer is pretty old I think this would be the perfect gift!!!

  38. Annette Taylor says:

    I read the official rules and entered!

  39. Wenda Scott says:

    Oh my gosh, this would be so awesome. My daughter and her husband are both trying to go to school and are using one computer between them. This would be such a wonderful gift for them. Thank you for the chance to win.

  40. I would really like to win and I would give my laptop to my grandson.. He would be so excited and so would I….

  41. Well, this would be extremely helpful, as our present 7-yr old Dell computer is in the shop being diagnosed and we don’t have the verdict as yet! In the meantime, my hubby has been doing research and discussing the Intel Core processors with me. I will share the comments from your blog with him! THANKS!

  42. It would make my life better because it would make my husband’s life better! He so needs a new laptop. Winning this would help us do that!

  43. I wouldn’t have to kick my kids off of my laptop all of the time. They could just have it and I could have the fancy, schmancy new one!! 😉

  44. Lynn Campbell says:

    Pictures, pictures, pictures!! We really need the brain and brawn of this computer! Like you, I do everything on the computer on a daily basis. But I’d really like to get this for my husband. His computer is very old and will no longer take the recovery disks to reformat it. (It’s OLD!) It has recently begun shutting down every few minutes and I fear its days are numbered. We can’t afford to replace it so I’d really love to give him this computer. $250 dollars toward it would greatly help!

    Lynn Campbell

  45. While I would love more than anything to have a new laptop for myself I would REALLY love to win this for my granddaughter who needs one for her schoolwork! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  46. I don’t have a laptop….but oh how much I would LOVE one! Then I could work in the living room and be with my Doodle and not stuck in the other room when I want to get on the computer and do blog ‘work’. 🙂

  47. You’re a brave soul to share a picture of your desk ;). My photo hobby sucks up all my storage space too. What did we ever do before computers and digital cameras….. and the internet???!

    Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway.


  48. My current desktop computer (which is ancient) is getting slower and slower and winning a lovely new laptop would be a treat. I’m currently in the hunt for my first home, and don’t have the ready funds to replace my old clunker, so I’d love to win this giveaway!

  49. What a dream to have a computer that has so many features. As much
    as I would like to have it for myself, I would give it to my grandson.
    His computer has been broken for several months and his parents don’t
    have the extra money to replace it. He is so deserving….never asking for
    anything. This would help him out so much with school and college next fall. Thank you for hosting a FABULOUS giveaway.

  50. Melissa N. says:

    I’d help out since we have a baby due in 3 weeks, and all family/friends are in Texas over 10 hours away. It’d allow me to blog anywher ein the house with the little man beside me.

  51. I have 5 children, and several of them share my computer. It gets quite slow on occasion with all the activity. I’d love a faster processor to solve that problem!

  52. I would love to have a laptop, I may be one of the last people to have a laptop. I would for sure do great things with this laptop!

  53. How would it help? My hubby has been very ill and having a laptop would #1 allow him to use the computer again but also allow me to sit with him in the evenings while blogging and not spend time away from him in my office:)

  54. April in CT says:

    It would help that I’m not constantly worrying that my power cord is going to break the rest of the way! It’s already bent and I’m just waiting on it to bite the dust, I don’t even want to think about what it will cost to fix. Being able to have more than a couple of programs running would save me tons of time too. I’m always multi-tasking on my laptop and it runs so slow!

  55. With kids at home, I generally only have a few minutes here or there during the day to get things done on the computer. Waiting around for a program to load or save just isn’t something I have a lot of time for! Having a faster processor would let me make the most of the computer time that I have and still be able to spend a lot of quality time with my family as well. 🙂

  56. How wonderful! I heard about your giveaway from another blogger. I don’t have a laptop and am stuck at my desk. It would be wonderful to be able to be connected from other plces in my home and away.

  57. Hi Rhoda, I. Am. A. Lurker. If there were a 12-step program for visiting blogs, I would be there. I would love to enter your best buy givaway. You’ve even compelled me to create my own blogher account so I could enter the Intel giveaway-would love to put my laptop out of it’s misery. Who knows, I may even jump in to blogging with my eyes wide shut!

  58. Count me in!!!! 🙂

  59. I too need extra speed and room for my photo editing as my current computer is so slow! I know this stems from age, and is further complicated by the tools/programs being used. It would be a relief to have a newer model with all the bells and whistles!

  60. What a great Christmas gift this would be!

  61. Thanks for hosting the giveaway! If I had one of these super cool laptops I could take it from room to room to work while I chase my two wild little girls. Thanks!

  62. Enter me please, I need a new lappy SOOOO bad!! So fun! Facebooking now about it! 🙂

  63. My desk top is about to bite the dust. I would be thrilled to have a brand new laptop to replace my old computer!

  64. Oh I would love the i5!! I like to see what new technology is out there but it can get quite expensive for retired persons!

  65. Melesa Garrison says:

    I would love to win this fabulous prize as my daughter’s was stolen and she needs one desperately for college. I would love to replace hers for her.

  66. What a great giveaway. We are a house full of techies!

  67. Anything to speed up and streamline my work would be appreciated.

  68. Kiwana Washington says:

    My husband and I are both attempting to complete our degrees online, so this would really come in handy right now. He has his laptop that his job provided him with, but due to the fact that the other computer we have at home (provided by my job) seems to be on it’s last foot, we could surely use this. Thanks!

  69. I would love to break in my digital scrapbook software!

  70. I use my computer for everything – staying in touch, banking, shopping, and more! It is dying, however, and hums and groans and freezes up constantly. It is pretty old now, so I am no surprised. I would love to win a new one!

  71. I would be able to work remotely more efficiently. Right now I split office and home time on two pc’s and am constantly emailing data back and forth. Would be so nice to have all in one place!

  72. There is only one computer in our family of 4! I would love to have one of my very own!

  73. having a new lap top would helo my day to day life by making me mobile and able to just pick up and go , as I can take my lap top with me and be out and about and still be connected to important internet stuff
    have a pink rainbow day everyone

  74. Having this computer would make the little daily tasks on the computer go by faster. It would also be nice to make things like phone lists and lists of things that I usually get at the grocery to speed up those things as well.

  75. Gosh I would love to win a lap top. I borrow my husband’s work one–he would like for me to give it back, he is sick of looking for it!

  76. I’ve been suffering withdrawal since my laptop went caput! Many tears have been shed since it died.

  77. AtOneWithHim says:

    I would use it for working on my digital photography. God Bless!

  78. I have a daughter headed to college in the next year and this would be great to send with her.

  79. Would love to win the laptop. Our computer we have now is one our son-in-law put together from computers others have thrown away.

  80. I had to read this a couple of times because I couldn’t believe it. The gift card, a laptop? That is amazing. If I were lucky enough to win, it would be shared with our son who needs a computer to help with school work. Thanks for the chance.

  81. My computer has done well, but it definitely slows down when I have too many things going on! My dh gets annoyed by the way I open so many programs at once, but it’s the way I do things. It would really help me hop on for just a minute, get stuff done, and then get on with my day, to have a faster computer.

  82. I would love to win this but my son going off to college needs it worse!
    Thanks for the giveaway Rhoda.

  83. It would help me get twice as much done just with its extra speed alone! That would help so much.

  84. Hi Rhoda would LOVE to win! thanks for the opportunity!

  85. Winning would be great!

  86. I would love to win this. Thank you for the opportunity!

  87. It would help my life bunches in that it’s fast and efficient (as opposed to this old hog I’m working on now)…and it’s a laptop.

    I’ve never had a laptop. Always a desktop. Yikes!

    Thank you.

  88. wanda hurst says:

    well, it would make me alot more mobile since I only have a desk top computer.

  89. I would love to get a new computer! Mine is so old. I bought it in 2005. That’s like ancient in computer years. 🙂

  90. The biggest help this would provide would be to help me manage LOTS of open windows, uploads/downloads with much better and faster performance!

  91. i work remotely while my son is at preschool. i could definitely use a laptop that could handle my photo-editing needs.

  92. Sweet give away!

  93. We have one computer and try to be kind to each other and give equal time to those who need it. It seems the both of us and our children and grandchildren want to work (or play) at the same time, I would love to have one of my own.

  94. Winning a new computer or a gift certificate to put on one would help my family out alot. We have one but all of us has business to take care of and we have to share. My daughter will be going to college in 2012 and we have got to find one before then. The computer and internet is very helpful in many ways and we enjoy it. I will add you to my sidebar and post this. Have a great Thanksgiving!

  95. Marilyn Holeman says:

    Getting a new Intel Core processor laptop could help me in my day to day life because I could learn to do photo editing with it. I’m not very computer literate, and this would hopefully help! Thanks, Rhoda.

  96. Rhoda!
    Just came back from posting to the BlogHer website!! This is all so fun!
    Would love to win one of your Best Buy gift cards!!

    Love, hugs & Happy Thanksgiving!

  97. Angela Fowler-Wells says:

    I would love to win the Best Buy gift card. I recently lost my Ipod and I’ve been lost without it. Plus I could buy my hubby something too.

  98. A laptop that can handle photo editing would be so amazing! When blogging, I spend more time working at a snail’s pace with my photos than anything else. It’d be great to have more time to respond to more comments and be out taking more photos!


  99. Winning would make my life easier because it’s really hard for me to focus on writing posts for my blog because my desktop pc sits in the middle of my living room which is Grand Central Stattion 🙂

  100. Winning the Best Buy gift card would help me buy a laptop. Maybe then I could start a blog of my own!

  101. Christy Olin says:

    I would love to win the Best Buy gift card! I could get my husband a super sweet present!

  108. I’d love to win!

  109. Ally Walker says:

    It would be great to have an intel core processor that was for me! and not something that was shared with kids and husband. I could keep up with my multi-tasking and find a more organized way to balance life, work, kids, house!!!

  110. This computer would help me check out all my favorite blogs in lightning speed so I could do it during my baby’s naps!

  111. Oh, that Best Buy gift card would come in handy! Would love to win this!!

  112. I teach music lessons from my home. Often there are songs my students want to learn and a laptop is a great way to look up the audio file on line so I can hear it. In addition, I have large sheet music files and music programs on my main PC and run to my office to get them where a dedicated laptop is so much easier.

  113. Oh…to win would be a blessing!

  114. I would love to have a laptop to take with me when I travel. It would sure help out with photo editing and blog design too!

  115. I’m a muti-tasking person and a quick laptop can definitely make my life easier.

  116. I can use it for school (: I go to UCSD.

  117. I’m a student, so anything that improves my computer speed and function would be a great help and timesaver, especially compared to the 5 year old laptop I am using now.

  118. If I could win the Best Buy gift card it would help me purchase a laptop, and then I could start a blog, that would be sweet.

  119. The IntelCore i5 processor would help me not be so stressed when my current computer runs sooooo slow!

  120. My daughter needs a laptop for college!!!

  121. I Tweeted about your giveaway! (fabulousfinds)

  122. I have ten kids! Nuff said!

  123. Winning a new laptop would give me a chance to work from home!

  124. I would love to win the Best Buy card to put toward a new laptop. Great Giveaway!

  125. Tonnia Williams says:

  126. i would love to win. i don’t have one now so that would be so great!! thanks!

  127. I would use a faster computer for editing and uploading photos. My current computer is way too slow which takes away from time spent with my 2 year old.

  129. Ohh, I would so love to win!! Great giveaway!!

  130. Would totally make my life easier because I could get things done so much quicker on the new laptop.

  131. It would help us out so much because my daughters could get their own laptop and stop borrowing mine!

  132. Winning this gift card would help me so much. I stayed hidden in my home for almost four years due to being embarrassed about my weight and not wanting anyone to see me. I started losing weight and my outtings would be riding around back roads taking pictures. I found a love of something! Now I’ve lost a little over 200 hundred pounds and I LOVE taking photos. I would use the gift card towards the laptop or a digital camera.

  133. I would use the gift card to buy a new DVD player. Our old one really needs replacing. What a great giveaway! I’m going over to enter for the laptop next.
    Thanks Rhonda!

  134. Getting a new laptop would be wonderful! I am currently a student and I work full time and it would make my life so much easier if I had a new computer it would be faster than mine right now and it would help me get things done faster and on time for once!

  135. meeyeehere aka Rachel Crisman says:

    OH,You do not understand how this would help us with our mastering business.My hubby masters music to make extra money and he records,I am trying to start blogging to help out and it would be great to keep in touch with my sister who moved away and I miss very much.This would be too wonderful for me and my family

  136. I won’t have to get up too early.

  137. Oh, I would love to win this giftcard! I could use some software…or would I buy games for my boys for Christmas. I would spend it, that’s for sure!

  138. Getting a new Intel Core processor laptop would help my day to day life simply by the fact that I don’t have a laptop. If I had laptop with a fast Intel Core processor I could check my email through out the day when I’m not near my desktop computer and I could work on Microsoft Office applications, as well.

  139. Not waiting forever for a page to come up!

  140. Faster loading pages, means more work getting done away from the computer….and I might even learn to photo edit with a new one!! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  141. Oh’ Rhonda, this would make my life so much simpler. We currently share a computer and we are both home together all the time. It’s very difficult sharing since he needs to be online so much. Also I would love to be able to take it to bed before falling asleep. I use to read magazines to fall asleep and there are so many things I would like to read online but laying down when it’s quiet and I can concentrate.

    Thanks for a chance to win my dream prize.
    Hugs…Tracy 🙂

  142. Just tweeted here:!%20-%20!/tracysuz/status/7312611007795201

  144. This would help me get a new laptop… no more waiting for pages to load!

  145. Awesome, thanks for the chance to win!

  146. Natalie Lukachyk says:

    Hey There
    Love your blog….
    I love to scrapbook and make cards. Oh and the things I could do!
    That laptop would be such a greatful gift!

  147. Having this new Intel Core Processor would definitely make my daily chores go smoother. I would be able to plan out which of my kids is going to take on which chore! Pick meeee Intel 🙂

  148. How awesome would it be to have a faster – better processor. I’ve been trying to work not only on a food blog, but a cookbook for friends and family. Slooooowww work on my computer. I am crossing my fingers, toes and everything else that can be crossed.

  149. Brenda L. W. says:

    I would love a laptop! I’m currently using a 3yr. old desktop and I am attending online college. The Intel Core Processor would be so much faster and do so much more than my slow-as-molasses computer. Oh, and to be able to connect computer with television just opens a whole new world 🙂

  152. My husband and I could both be doing our computer stuff at the same time!! 😀

  166. Getting a new lap top would change my day to day life because I would have more time for other things. Having a fast computer that I wouldn’t have to share with anyone else would let me get a lot more done.

  167. I’d be able to start editing our photos and home videos; my current pc dogs and can’t handle larger files without freezing. I’ve got so many photos I want to be able to edit and share with extended family. Maybe I’ll even be able to finally upload a video to YouTube..something my pc has never, ever been able to do.

  168. It would totally help me organize home and work a lot better!

  169. It would help me get more done so I wouldn’t be stuck at the computer for so long.

(or wherever I happened to be!) : )

  186. A new computer would be a delightful addition to my work space to design monograms and photo edit! Cathy

    I would use it to take classes online (i’m about to graduate), manage my outlook calendar and emails, surf blogs for giveaways, read up on my daily celebrity blogs and find receipes to test. Create to do lists and honey do lists. My current computer keeps crashing on me. I have lost all my work and had the harddrive replaced twice It was only 7 months old when it first crashed!

  188. I’d use it every day to read blogs, organize and edit photos, and play games with my kids. I’d also be taking it to class with me.

  195. It would help having two computers! That way hubby & I can use it at the same time instead of trying to compete with each other!

  196. Laura Burton says:

    I would actually give the card to my husband to buy a new laptop! I got a new laptop last year and LOVE it and he has a desktop computer that is in great decline (it’s 8 years old!!!) It would be great for his every day use – especially checking up on his fantasy football teams 🙂

  197. My husband and I wouldn’t have to compete for the “good computer” anymore. He could have it and I would keep the new laptop for myself. 🙂

  198. I am a tech wanna be guru, but I only have a netbook and a desktop that moves slower than molasses, so I would love the opportunity to get this gift card and get a computer.

    Peace, Love and Chocolate

  199. I tweeted.

  203. I need the turbo boost technology….my computer is a dinosaur and I can barely have more than one application open at time or the thing shuts down! Boy could I get a lot done with turbo boost!

  204. It would get my husband out of his sad little mancave. Sad because it’s really just our entry hall with a desk pushed into it. 😀

  205. I’m a college student and take classes online so this would be perfect for me. I wouldn’t be chained to my desktop. FREEEDOMM!!! I would also love it for entertainment I’m addicted to hulu!

  206. sweeter the berry says:

    I’m an online student and would use it for my classes and day to day computing with business functions, bills, sweeps, etc. It would be very helpful as my laptop has a broken screen and I currently use another household member’s computer.

  207. sweeter the berry says:
  208. A new laptop would help my photo editing go much faster!

  209. How would getting a new Intel Core processor laptop help your day to day life??

    The sky is the limit!!! I would be able to plan my garden, better organize my ideas for landscaping and decorating inside my house, start on my idea for a family cookbook to give to my children when they leave home for their first place of their own (an event coming way too fast as my oldest is 18), organize the many, many pictures, etc., etc. I think the real question is how could it NOT help my day to day life!? It sounds like a dream come true

    I would use my new Intel Core processor laptop to help me set up a claendar, organize my recipes for a recipe book I would like to compile, continue to take on-line courses to enhance my Occupational Therapy knowledge because education is knowledge. Having said that, I would like to become more comfortable with the computer so that I can start to Blog and develop my own website. I plan on becoming a personal trainer to work with seniors (which I presently do). I would like to give my present computer to my daughter who has been struggling financially and who has been unemployed and wants to return to school. I need a computer that can help me work fffast and efficiently. Thank You, Lisa

  215. Sarah Bryner says:

  220. i edit photos and go to school online so a computer could help me in many ways.

  221. A faster computer would allow me to spend less time staring at my computer in frustration and more time working.

    A faster computer would mean that my kids could play their preschool math games without getting the “low memory” error. It is hard being a single dad but a new computer is what Christmas is made of. It would be great. God Bless.

    Scott Martin

  225. It would help my day-to-day life because I would give it to my husband to replace the incredibly slow desktop with which he currently struggles. I’d be happy, he’d be happy!

  226. A new Intel Core processor laptop would certainly speed up my computer time. My PC has gotten so bogged down and out of date that it takes full minutes bottle-necked while trying to start Windows. Much worse is that I have to be careful how many applications I am running at the same time.
    chainmail(at) iwon(dot) com

  227. WOW I have been talking about getting one, this would be great, I could roam around instead of being at the desktop.

  231. I love having multiple things going on my computer and get impatient when it then runs slow, so that would be nice.

  232. My husband is starting school in January and it would help with that. Plus faster bill paying, surfing, shopping, blogging. The possibilities are endless.

  233. A faster laptop would help with my photography business, both in uploading the photos from the camera and in processing them.

  234. It would really help me get school work done faster if I had my own computer. I would use the giftcard towards a computer.

  235. Sandra Brower says:

    I get on the computer everyday doing homework and getting home school assignments for my daughter. At times I will have so many tabs open trying to get the information I need that it slows down my computer or a few times it has crashed it. I also love my blogs. I read and enter giveaways and like interacting with my favorite blog writers. I also do my own writings. I am writing a book, a novel.. so I am always researching something I have in mind to write about and I write poetry and song lyrics. My son is a musician and I will work with him on music he is collaborating on. I have one of his original songs playing in the background now. besides all that, I work on a horse ranch and manage all the supplies and feeding so I am always doing inventories and logging in supplies and equipment. Recently, I acquired a couple of estate bundles that I am putting into my personal inventory for sale on eBay. eBay is new to me so I am on a learning curve there and doing a lot of research to make sure I am doing things the smart way. a faster processor and new tools on a new computer could help me tremendously. With so many varied interests and projects I could use a little organizational help and a little more speed to handle everything I have going on at one time. One day I hope I can have my own blog. I love to write and people seem to be interested in what I have to say. I am making loads of friends on blog sites and love the blogging community. Thanks for the opportunity!!

  236. Sandra Brower says:
  237. It would help my day-to-day life by freeing up all the time I spent waiting for my laptop to do something or to cool off after overheating. The more reviews I read the more this Intel laptop is starting to sound like a miracle machine. 🙂

  239. I blogged about it @

    well, i could do more on the computer so that would be great. i am a bit addicting to computing you see, the amount of time I spend on the internet is a bit wild. i probably wouldn’t spend less time, but I’d get more done!

    I would use it to start my own blog – as well as my own online bakery business. I have a full-time job and of course can’t use that computer for personal blogging or outside business ventures, and my home computer is older and not up to the task.

  271. It would make organizing and editing pictures of my new grandbabies so much easier.

  272. While pretty much my entire life is already organized on the computer, having a faster one would let me let me complete my “have-to-do” things more quickly so I could have more free time for things I really want to do.
