How did it go? (and $250 Best Buy Giveaway!)

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Intel.

**Giveaway Closed!  Thank you for entering!! The winner of the giveaway is Peace Love and Pets!!  Congrats!**

I recently told you about the laptop that BlogHer sent me that was powered by the Intel® Core™ i5 processor and I'm back to tell you my experience with it! I can honestly say that it's pretty awesome! I've used older PC's before and I always noticed a lag time when opening programs and working on large spreadsheets but this laptop with the new processor definitely made a difference. For work, I was able to work on several spreadsheets at once and then even edit photos with those spreadsheets open and everything went quite smoothly! My screens didn't freeze and I didn't have to restart at all. I mean, if you've used a PC before, I'm sure you've had to deal with that at least a few times! I really liked how well the processor work because that meant that I could get my work done faster and spend more time with my husband and dogs!

Some info about the Intel® Core™ i5 processor:
Thanks to Intel® Turbo Boost Technology,1 the Intel® Core™ i5 processor automatically adapts to
whatever you are doing on your PC, dialing up speed to respond quickly to your needs. The Intel®
Core™ i5 processor: that’s smart performance with a speed boost. The Intel® Core™ i5 processor
also features Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology,2 which enables each core of your processor to
work on two tasks at the same time, delivering the performance you need for smart multitasking.
Don’t let too many open applications slow you and your PC down. Get smart performance now.


I also had a lot of fun using the Intel® Wireless Display which let me pull up my screen on our HDTV! It was actually a lot of fun sitting on the couch and reading through my favorite blogs through our TV instead of the laptop screen. Not sure my husband enjoyed it as much though. LOL!


Don't forget that you have a chance to win a $250 gift card to Best Buy!  All you need to do is to leave me a comment and tell me what you do help you multitask better or faster! And for an extra entry, tweet or blog about this giveaway!

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!

kileen said...

I need a laptop for traveling and this would definitely help! thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

Kevin & Alyssa said...

What a great gift this would be!

Angela said...

What a wonderful giveaway! I could use the money towards our new home since we are about to do a big remodel. Maybe buy a real tv to replace our current dinosaur.

As for multi-tasking, I use to-do lists to keep me on track, since I tend to start tasks and not finish them.

Stacey B said...

Right now my multi tasking revolves around finding ways to do things with my 6 month old baby. So far the ultimate solution has been carrying him around in the Ergo Carrier...frees up two hands to do other things!

MYPINKRAINBOW said...

the best way I find that i can multi task is to first make a list and no more than 8 items and they have to be reasonable and then i prioritze them and the first 5 on the list get down and things go smoothly

Academic in Heels said...

What has helped me with multi-tasking has been my smartphone (an Android). It keeps my life together :P AND helps me to manage my multiple projects at once! I am coveting the new Samsung galaxy tablet - even more life management programs and an awesome set-up!

laceandblush said...

For me having my iphone is key to multitasking. Needless to say I use it for everything from emails, video chat, taking photos, recording videos, browsing online, to driving directions, getting movies times and finding essential recipes for dinner. In addition to this I always have my planner with me to jot down those key notes or to schedule an upcoming occasion or event. I think the best thing you could do for yourself is to have a planner. I would love to pick my hubby something special from his Holy Grail of stores, Best Buy!

lisa said...

I would love a new computer as mine is so old. I would use it for my photos. Mine is so slow I can go do a wash load of clothes while it downloads!

Jayne Martin said...

Multi-tasking is something I don't even think about anymore. Rare is the time when I'm only doing one thing at once -- except sleeping.

$250 would sure help with gift giving this year.

Happy Thanksgiving.

A new, faster computer is what I need. My current one is almost 6 years old, which doesn't seem long, but in technology terms is ancient.

To help me multi task better, I really have to make a conscious effort to focus. If I'm doing more than a couple things I really need to concentrate to do it right.

Thank you.

My pc is so slow I read magazine articles while waiting for it to load. I'd use the Best Buy card to help me purchase a new computer!

Kelly said...

I return calls while cooking and ironing!

Kelly said...

I make tons of lists to stay organized, and only watch TV while I'm doing something else...folding laundry, grading homework, etc. It makes tasks more fun and I actually get them done quicker!

Kelly Massman said...

I learned how to type really quickly! :-)

zucchinifry said...

Something that helps me multitask is I make LOADS of lists. And i try to cross things off in 2s. Meaning I always try to be efficient in what I do. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

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.

Jules said...

I would love to win this for my husband who just recently started PT school!

undomestic chica said...

This is an awesome giveaway! I would put it towards a new camera as my point and shoot is at least 7 years old and I'm having twins soon. I really want a camera that will actually help reduce their red eye and take pictures quicker than my current one, and one with a battery that lasts longer than my current one.

I work in radio so my whole day is multi-tasking! The best thing I do is do all my regular work in the same order every day so I know if I've forgotten something, but I also make a lot of lists or notes for myself.

Kim said...

my new Droid is amazing for multitasking!

JDubb said...

Well right now I have a work-provided Sprint World Edition Blackberry (although my "World Edition" has yet to work overseas even once!). This blackberry is the means by which I multitask but is extremely inconveniently inadequate. My job consists of driving, talking on the phone, checking email, texting, and writing--usually all at the same time. I would really be able to use the $250 to purchase a more adequate smartphone!

~Decidedly Imperfect~ said...

My BlackBerry is a god-sent at allowing me to multitask. I set reminders to let me know when I need to switch tasks. Also allows me to blast quick e-mails when I'm out running errands & can't get to my laptop. Team BlackBerry all the way!

I am a crazy multitasker. I am constantly doing 10 things at once and I never have a clue how I do it. But I do make lists like crazy. I love the program called Zenbe, they have an iphone app too. It is really helpful to help me organize my brain and figure out what needs to be done. Thanks for the opportunity!

P said...

i always make lists to keep me organized when multitasking, it helps to read over them every once in awhile to make sure i am completing everything i need to do :)

also the $250 would be great for gift giving this holiday :)

Multitasking is just a way of life. while on the phone I am researching something or another on line or sending an email. I work out while the laundry is going. there isn't enough time other wise!

I would love to get the new Kinetic :D

Brenda said...

I go to college online and my desktop is ancient and slow. The Intel Core Processor would fix both of those problems and I could actually work in another room!

Lynda said...

a handwritten list helps me multitask!

doozy said...

Making a list and writing important dates on my planner and remembering to look at them.

KaHolly said...

I start early in the morning, am very deliberate and take my time. Usually I have a list already in my head, but I keep a back-up paper list on the counter because I am getting old and my memory isn't what it used to be.

Sandy said...

I love lists and post-it notes. They're my best friend and I could NOT do without them. It definitely helps me keep track of things.

Patty said...

I am terrible at multitasking. I get started on one thing and then get distracted and move on to another project. I am not an organized person.

dj said...

I'm a multi-tasker and use lists like crazy to organize myself. If I win the gift card, it'll go towards one of my next two major projects - a new computer home build, or an upgrade from a point and shoot digital camera to my first DSLR. : )

I leave myself notes everywhere..if I have a project due, I rely on lists to get me through and stay on course or I get horribly sidetracked. A lot of times I also rely on my husband to remind me when I need to do something..he's got a much better memory than I do.

Elizabeth Doyle said...

I use post-it notes or a list of some sort. It's easy to write out EVERYTHING that needs to get done, and then look through and pair things that can be done together and then organising those in a logical order.

For example:
Clipping coupons pairs really well with watch the newest episode of Castle.
Cooking dinner and folding laundry work well together, timing the folding during the bake cycle of something gets easier every time.

I am also entering My Coke Rewards during the small lag between posting comments on other websites and checking emails. I have about 24 tabs open on Firefox open now with various projects going and I am chatting with my boyfriend on Yahoo Messenger. I definitely need a faster processor to cut back on the lag even if I can't fit as much multi-tasking in between. :) LOL

In terms of stuff I do at the computer, as soon as I saw your question about what I do to help me multi-task faster, I was reminded that sometimes when I enter contests, I get a reply telling me that I'm posting my comments TOO fast--so, maybe I'm fast enough! LOL What I'm realizing is that I'm not quite as together as I was when I was younger. I've actually started writing things down (now, if I could only found where I wrote it!)

Focus on one thing! And speaking of "focus"...I would love a new camera, thank you. :)

I would put it towards a camera!

A faster processor would help me by allowing me to do work, browse the net, listen to music and use social media all at the same time ;) Thanks!

I listen to music or a tv show to multitask. Somehow it occupies a part of my mind to allow me to really focus on the tasks I'm working on instead of daydreaming or being distracted.

in order to multitask better i think i need to clone myself - or to hire a secretary - but probably more reasonable would be for me to sit and take some time t make a system

What helps me multitask better or faster? Lists! I make lists and prioritize. Some things can multitask together better than others!

I have lots of pictures that I have taken of my first grandbaby born in April that I need to edit and print just don't have a way to do it right now. This giveaway would make that all possible.
Thanks!

Lists, lists and more lists! And I'm usually doing 2 or 3 things simultaneously from them.

I would buy a laptop.

peg42 said...

I keep a lot of notes and I also try to make calls and work on the computer at the same time.
Thanks so much for this giveaway.

slehan said...

I mostly do just one thing at at time. I mess up one or the other when I try to do two things at once. Thanks for the contest.

I'm a slow multitasker. I just take my time from tab to tab and eventually manage to get it all done.

Sleep early, wake up early, then have a go at making a "things I need to do" list and tagging on an approximate "Time I can spend for each item". Helps a lot. I multitask a lot. A blog article on one hand, cooking on the other, and taking care of the dog running around the place at the same time. Plus the latest sitcoms running in the meanwhile. Making those lists helps me have enough time for all this even though I'm doing a lot simultaneously.

Rebecca Graham said...

I make a list of things that need to be done and my husband helps me complete the tasks.

My husband does video editing for work, this would help it go faster.

Peace Love and Pets said...

I am a super obsessively crazy organized multi-tasker. I write out notes the night before of what I need to do and what things I can do at the same time to cut down the time it takes me to get it all done.

The only thing that helps me multitask better is having lists and frequent email reminders.

Bacallsmom said...

I drink coffee. Lots of it. It makes me move faster, until it gets to the point that I'm shaking.

I would love to win and get a kindle to read at night while hubby is sleeping.

Kathy B. said...

In order to multi-task, I HAVE to have a list. I make up list after list, and then I forget where I put the lists! I really need one place to keep a master list, and then keep referring to that one list!!! $250 would come in handy going towards a new flat screen TV.
