Intel Core i5 Processor Review & Giveaway

BlogHer Reviewer

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Intel.

All of us who blog know that blogging can take up a lot of time. There’s writing posts, taking pics, editing pics, getting everything loaded and ready to post. Whewwww! It can be a lot of work and take up a lot of precious time that could be spent more productively.

Since my blog is SO much about decorating and making a home pretty, I do take a lot of pics and have enjoyed honing my photography skills so much since I began this blogging journey. Editing photos is probably one of the most time-consuming things about blogging, but I love doing that extra step to make sure my pics are blog-worthy and the pics fit my blog size-wise. All of that takes some time.

Having a computer that can keep up with all my blog multi-tasking is SO important! I spend a lot of time in my little office nook and love having this space to work in. And having a great computer just helps me tremendously in keeping up with all that goes along with this blogging thing!

I was recently blessed  (jumping up and down!!) with a new laptop, thanks to my association with BlogHer. A beautiful new laptop was sent to me to keep and try out for myself and I can tell you that it’s really making my life easier already. Earlier this year, my old computer crashed. I had relied on a desktop set-up for several years and all of a sudden, it died! I purchased a small netbook and that is what has kept me going this year, but I really felt I needed something more powerful for every day use. My little netbook will now be my backup and travel computer.

This new computer is powered by the Intel® Core™ i5 processor with Turbo Boost Tchnology, which allows me to get more done in less time and an Intel Wireless Display(aka WiDi) adaptor allowing me to use my HDTV as a monitor. How cool is that?

This little Netgear gadget is what allows me to see my computer monitor ON my HDTV! What will they think of next? Just by plugging this in and downloading the software, I can do this:

My TV becomes the computer monitor. Now, this is probably not a feature that I’ll be using every day, but I can think of a few ways to utilize this one. Watching a DVD from my laptop on the HDTV without having a DVD player, looking at photos online and seeing them really big, or doing a presentation of some sort without having to have extra equipment. Pretty cool, huh?

This new laptop with the Core i5 Intel processor is super-fast and is definitely keeping up with all the tasks I need to get accomplished everyday. My snazzy new laptop is so fast and I can see multi-tasking will not be a problem with this baby!

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

Why wait? Now you can start doing. Get a smart Intel® processor inside in your next PC.

  211. The feature that I would most appreciate about this computer is definitely the faster processor. My computer is so slow and about once a month I do a clean up to make it go faster, but it doesn’t help much!!

  212. whoawhoawhoaaaa love the new feature, definitely love the Turbo Boost, but I’m getting blown away by the Widi HDTV…. sometimes you just need more screen real estate to navigate through everything. THAT would help me SO much. I always have 2990423 windows / programs open 🙂

    thank you for the opportunity xoxo

  213. Wow…what a generous giveaway! Thank you!

  214. Finally starting to fix up a game room that we have waited 9 years for – this sure would be nice!!! Love your blog!!

  215. I would love to win this, thank you. Love your blog, am a follower.

  216. My computer is broken. I sure could use a new one.

  217. Count me in!!! Txs so much!

  218. The hyperthreading feature sounds so cool!

  219. This would be such a blessing to my life just now!! Would LOVE to win!!

  220. What an awesome giveaway!

  221. I love that the tv can become the monitor!

    That is really neat.

    Thank you.

  222. Wow – the higher speed would be a huge benefit to me!!

  223. My ancient computer sorely needs to be retired. I would love to win the gift card as it would help me replace it.

  224. Definitely fast processor, it’s all I ask!

  225. OMG! What a great giveaway! Please, oh please, enter me in this giveaway. Thank you for hosting this for all the bloggers. Your the best.

    I won’t have to wait for my husband to get off our one dang working computer to read all the lovely blogs!

  229. I homeschool my son and newly adopted NEW SON! This would be SUCH a huge help to our home.

    The fact that it can go thru the TV would be great!

  231. I’d save so many minutes no longer waiting on a very sloooooooow computer. 😉

  232. The Intel hyper-threading would help me out the most.

  233. I love the idea of seeing my computer work on the tv. If I win I’m coming back here and having you lead me through it. A little to old and computer illiterate to figure it out on my own.

  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.

    What a great giveaway! Thank you for all your work in bringing this to us. I love Blogher and appreciate the work it takes for all of you to introduce us to all the wonderful products you review. Plus, you give us the chance to own some things which we might not otherwise be able to. Personally, I love glimpsing real women in their own environments doing things and accomplishing things for themselves. You all give your audience a great model to look up to and emulate. 🙂

  237. The laptop looks wonderful. I would love to use it to work with photos of my children.

  238. Benny Williams says:

    Which of these Intel features would benefit you the most?? The processor speed! A faster processor would definitely help me not go crazy…I’m always waiting for the computer to “think”…errr… Thanks for the giveaway!

  239. Benny Williams says:
  240. Hyperthreading would benefit me the most!

  241. The multi-task processing would definitely help me out – I’m always doing several things at once on my computer so having a processor that is speficially designed to handle multi-tasking would be fantastic!

  242. The turbo boost would really be a huge benefit to me. I am not fast at all but a faster computer would make my life a lot easier.

  243. Tweeted too!/marybug2/status/16290847339315200

  244. No contest: Intel’s Turbo Boost would make my job a breeze. I edit work page to page, covering many websites. Waiting for pages to open takes FOREVER on my current computer.

    Thanks for this generous giveaway!

  245. I think the Turbo Boost technology would really help me when I want to multitask with different programs. Especially when I’m running music and writing essays!

  246. Definitely the Intel® Hyper-Threading! 🙂

  247. The Turbo Boost is what I need !

  248. The hyperthreading would help me multitask!

  249. Intel® Hyper-Threading would be my fav feature because I am always running multiple programs at the same time and it bogs down my PC!

  250. ooo I would love the Intel® Hyper-Threading because right now my pc crashes all the time when I do too much!

  251. I like the hyperthreading feature, since my wife likes to have several windows open at the same time.
