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!

I keep my to do list in outlook! It's such a nag that I finish things just so it won't keep bugging me. Plus, then I don't forget stuff, and don't lose my to-do list...

I would love to buy some great accessories for my camera!

Chris said...

I would use the GC for this: Dyson fan! I stuck my head through it and if I won, I'd do it again. Love the bladeless idea.

Melissa said...

That sounds like a great computer! Thanks for the review. I've been thinking about getting a new one to bring to class with me.

To help me multitask effectively I like to use a series of lists. I keep two running to-do lists - one for home and one for work. I like to limit the lists to one per day or one per week, depending on how intensive the tasks are.

Also, I am forgetful and I get really sidetracked by little things, random thoughts, etc. To help combat against this I always make it a point to keep a third list. This list is my capture-all. Anything that I think about doing -shopping returns, writing christmas cards, doing laundry, etc. will be put on this list. This ensures that I 1) stay on track, and keep doing whatever task I have already started on 2) don't forget anything important. Hope this helps!

Melissa

List making helps me stay organized so I can multitask without forgetting things. Doesn't always work.

With three kids, I'm the queen of multi-tasking! We need to be able to create Powerpoint and Word projects simultaneously, while uploading photos in the background.

Sheila said...

I could use this GC :)
I use lists and I check off each one after I complete each task. Also, I write numbers on which ones I need to tackle firts.

Q said...

I use my phone and outlook to keep track of my schedule. If I win, I can use it towards a new flash for my camera so my hubby can take better pictures of our son.

Aliya said...

I use virtual post-its to make a list of everything I need to get done... I even sometimes "cheat" and add stuff to the list I've already done JUST so I can cross them off! It's so nice to see a fully crossed out list at the end of the day!!

pick meeeeeeee!!!

ohkeeka said...

Multi-tasking has taken on a whole new meaning since I got my iPhone. I used to brag about my efficiency before ("Yes, that's right, I'm at the gym on the treadmill, on the phone with you, and on my laptop reading work emails--yep."), but that was nothing until I entered the realm of the smartphone. Now if I'm not doing at least 5 things at once, I feel like I'm being lazy!

Court said...

Great giveaway.

I use http://teuxdeux.com/ to keep track of my tasks. Then I devote an hour or two to the most important thing that needs to be done that day. The next hour or two goes to other items on the list. If I still haven't finished, I go back to the most important thing until it's done.

PetiteLittleGirl said...

Thanks for hosting this fab giveaway. I keep track of everything on my iphone. I could use this gift card to purchase a new laptop.

Tina12312 said...

First I have lists and notes and then I try to do things at the same time that don't require effort from me and thus accomplish them at the same time like doing laundry or dishes and running roomba (can't recommend this gadget enough) around while I'm making dinner. Every little bit helps. Thank you!

I make several to-do lists on post-its and stick them on the computer. Since i am always on my computer, it is the most visible location.

crystalf said...

I just make a list in my head of everything I have to do. I remember that list all day and tick things off as I do them. This time of the year though I usually write out a list. It's hard to remember what I still have to buy or do for my girls' school. Thank you!

SarainAkko said...

Saddest multi-tasking truth-While my husband is out of the house I run my netbook and his super-seedy laptop to get things done faster. Real multi-tasking would be dropping the netbook.

Patrice said...

I sewar to GOD that I am ADD at times. That is why in the morning I write down the things I want to get done (because I jump from task to task), then at the end of the day I write down what I didn't get done to add to my list for the following day. It really helps on those days where you feel like you got nothing done, and it helps to keep you in check.

idahomom said...

I multitask faster by running one computer with the left hand and one computer with the right hand.

Diane said...

Carol said...

thanks for sponsoring this giveaway! <3

To help myself multitask faster/better, I like to use my ipod touch's notes/calendar/stop watch apps (since I don't have an iphone! :[ ) to keep me organized and give me reminders of what I need to do. That way I can look up a recipe on my ipod touch and start cooking and bid on ebay while I'm waiting for my pasta to cook! :D

Vikky said...

Awesome give-away! I have been dying to buy a new lens for our camera. $250 will certainly help with that purchase.

Jess E. said...

To help me multi-task, I plan out what I can do in between 'projects.' For example, I don't like to blow dry my hair straight out of the shower - I like to let it air dry a little bit first. So, in the downtime I check my email or do other little errands I need to take care of online. By the time I'm finished, my hair is ready to be blow dried. I also stand in my closet and stare at my clothes while I brush my teeth so I can try to visualize what I'll wear.

I could really, really use this $250 gift card!!!

I could definitely use a new laptop! Mine is over 6 years old and it is tired! Or I could also use the money to buy a new tv!! Let's just say the one I have is quite large (and I don't mean the screen size). ;)

Lauren said...

Wow! $250 would be so nice! It could help me check off an item or two on my "technology wish list!" Thanks for the opportunity!

kelley said...

What a great giveaway! Anyway, I love multitasking, so I absolutely HAVE to make lists to remind myself of all the things I'm in the middle of doing! I use a calendar and to-do list on my computer, have a wall dry-erase calendar, use a planner, and also make paper to do lists (as well as ones in my phone) just to keep track of all the things I want to get done. Thanks again for the giveaway!

I can always multitask better by keeping lists on my phone. This time of year I always have an ongoing Christmas gift list saved for family and friends. That way when I forget what I wanted to get someone while I'm out shopping, I can look it up. And no more forgotten to-do list at home! Thanks for the great giveaway!

I know this may sound old school, but when it comes to multi-tasking and staying organized, I use post-its. I use both actual post-its, and then a post-it note app on my computer. It helps me to visualize what I actually need to do!

I have learned that OVER multi tasking can really mess you up healhtwise so for ME part of Multitasking is DELEGATING! I have 6 wonderful kids age 11-29 and they are learning to be helpful and patient and learning that perfection comes with a price. )So not worth it mostly!). I still have lists and look online for a lot of help with organization (shopping, etc) so it takes the PHYSICAL aspect of "running yourself ragged" out of life.

I pace. Usually I forget what I need to do, then I pace and remember all of the things that I need to get done. Then I mentally figure out which ones are priority and which are secondary and I can do while doing the more important.

What a Christmas present someone is going to have..WOW!! I multitask by trying to do things together. Like I do grocery shopping and all the errands like paying bills one day a week. I also ask help from the hubby if I need to get more than I can done in one day. That way I have the rest of the week to do housework or what ever.

That means I would be able to go from simple tasks like producing documents in word to watching my favorite shows on the computer and probably not even notice speed was increased to handle the job! Whoo hoo!!

$250 would go towards a new computer because we definately need a new one :-)

Every time I do housework, I have the washing machine, dishwasher going while I am doing other chores. I guess that counts

ellie said...

I am a constant multi-tasker. I don't usually make lists but I always think about what I have to do and keep a mental list of what to do next and then what to after that. It's getting harder as I age.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Lists, lists, and more lists. Also I use my laptop constantly to research products before shopping- enormous time-saver in the long run!

Debbie C said...

I really can't do anything to help myself multitask faster. I'm doing the best I can already. Now, a faster processor... that's what I need! It would turbo charge me online!

I love gadgets and computers - it would be a toss up to which of those I would choose to spend the gift card on!

Barbara said...

Having a computer fast enough to load 10 or 15 tabs at once helps me multitask. I hate having to wait for the pages to load before I can work.

I make so many lists -- it's easier to keep on track when you check things off.

To help me multi-task better, I never leave one room of the house to go to another with empty hands. There are always things that need picked up & put away and I find this helps.

Thanks for the giveaway......
Happy Holidays!

To multitask better, try to at least jot down notes, or open new tabs before you forget things..that way they're at least there.

tesashel said...

I keep a calendar for the important things I need to remember, and leave myself little notes to remind me of things.

Erica C. said...

This would help me multi-task...my current computer is so old...it can barely keep open 2 internet tabs.

guettel78 said...

To multitask effectively, I need to make a to-do list before I begin, with strict deadlines and objectives, so I can stay on track, and I remove all outside distractions by either going to a quiet work space or putting on my noise canceling headphones so I can give all of my attention to the work I need to get done. If possible, I also turn of my cell phone to avoid losing my train of thought. Thanks!

Magi said...

I have to have a plan whether it's written down or in my head. If I don't get up and going with a plan, I can fritter away a day like you wouldn't believe!

Deb said...

My laptop now is soooooo slow it is unbelievable!!! Even when I go to our local library to use their fast speed, my computer is still slow! I need my laptop for making notes of things to do all day long. I could really enjoy a new one! Thanks.

mrssquigg said...

I use Google Calendar to help me remember dates and times fro things I would normally forget. I have so much housework to do, cooking and running errands that I need something to help simplify my life and make it faster since I can't find a way to add more hours to the day.

Oh goodness to be able to have a laptop again that did not need to stay plugged in! I can harddly wait to get another one. Mine will only hold 18% battery life! lol

Aisling said...

One of my resolutions for 2011 is to slow down a bit on the multi-tasking. I don't really need to read the news or emails while I eat breakfast or sew something while I'm "relaxing" watching tv. That said, I enjoy switching activities or chores and getting things done. I'm a list keeper and love "scratching off" what I've finished. mcgillrmcgill(at)charter(dot)net

MJ said...

I plan ahead to help in multi-tasking, grouping things together to get them done quickly. I'd love the $250 to use towards a new DSLR camera, would cut down on the time I photo edit from my little digi camera :)

angie lilly said...

I am a horrible multi-tasker. Even when I make lists, I still mess up. I have to do things one at a time if I'm to be sure they get done correctly.
