i likey the laptop: the review


This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Intel.



so this last week i was suppose to see if having a laptop would actually be beneficial to me...hmmm well lets see, on wednesday my laptop had multiple tabs going, one of them being how to brine my turkey... you know i do it every year, yet it's like my brain can't seem to take that piece of information and store it, instead it drops it like yesturday's news the minute thanksgiving is over and i have to look it up again every year on how to do it. i also looked up how to add cute little cut out of pastry dough leaves to place on top of my pumpkin pies. they turned out looking very festive and martha stewart-y. yay for me! no one else cared but me and katie...aint that how it just goes with men?
the rest of the week aka friday, was spent on blogging, email writing (and organizing the disaster of emails just sitting there collecting dust), picture editing, and i even got to check out a couple of blogs which i've not done in over 6 months it seems.


while the kids did homework i edited pictures, because this way i was still able to give full attention when questions were brought up. (um like what the defenition of a word was and we totally looked it up in the online dictionary). while they played video games or played i was in the back ground able to answer some questions from some of you and heck start thinking about writing more blog posts. all the time i used to spend on these things in the office, (or didn't get to spend time on in the office) were now getting addressed. not perfectly, because let's face it...my time really isn't all mine just yet...but yes, this lap top with Intel Core i5 processor can handle my motherly multitasking as well as my attempt to multitask in the other areas in my life.
it was able to handle me editing pictures, look up dictionary definitions, look up something on amazon and try to answer questions through email. i would have to say it did pretty well trying to keep up with me, and i appreciated it.
now remember when i said in my last post about also getting the wireless WiDi HDTV to use my tv as a monitor? yeah, i kept thinking why would i want my tv as a computer monitor? i mean thats cool and all but really when was i going to use it? well, let me tell you. our dvd has been kind of on the fritz and we've lost the remote control, somewhere in the move maybe? anywho, we've not been able to watch movies since i guess we moved here. did you know that a lot of movies these days now have in thier package a computer file dvd that you can put and download onto you computers and onto ipods? yeah well, we just recently bought Toy Story 3 (oh my gosh the spanish buzz is HILARIOUS!) and we put in the computer file onto the lap top, and yup you got it we watched toy story 3 in our bedroom all snuggled up and comfy on our bed. the set up was a little trialsome...but most electronic things are for me, so i waited till the husband came home and set it up, then we were good to go. i even found him watching a tv show we've not ever watched before and asked what it was he was watching. he answered instant player Netflix of "lie to me" pretty good tv show where the heck have i been? and we watched a few episodes together. so i would say i would use the WiDi wireless to watch netflix in my room and keep catching up on Lie to Me and Mad Men.

so did you get that?

*lap top good for time management and able to move around more and take my work (so to speak) with me wherever i need to be.

*intel core i5 processor totally able to keep up with me and my multitasking skills and even came to save the day to help us get defenitions off the online internet dictionary.

*more time opened up for me to do the other things i do because i can fit in small incriments of computer time even in between awkward down time (ahem like waiting for the husband to hurry up and get out of home depot)
*spanish buzz in toy story 3= Hilarious good times.

*WiDi wireless confused me for set up but not the husband and when it was set up we are now catching up on past seasons of shows we've missed out on because sometimes we live under a rock.
so here's your chance yet again at $250 best buy visa card.
1.how many tabs do you have going right now? (i have three) tell me and get a chance to win. please leave an email address at the end of your comment.

If I won the $250 gift card, I would get my husband the "thing" he's been talking about non-stop lately . . . I hate to admit it, but I don't know what it's called because I've only been half-listening since we don't have the money for it, but it's some sort of portable media device that runs computer files and hooks into a regular tv. :)

Sarah K said...

I would probably use the gift card to go toward a new LED tv.

Currently 9. Usually more.

3 tabs in one window, 2 in the other. This is pretty great for me - I am always being scolded by my husband for having six billion tabs open. :)

I have 10 tabs open - I know. I'm a nut.

Megan said...

I would buy a universal remote for The Hubz - they're starting to take over our sidetable.

I would either be nice and buy the hubs the smart phone he wants, or be not so nice and buy a Nook for me!

would have to buy xbox 360. Ours broke and the man of the house is sad. That would be such a nice surprise for him!

Ashley said...

I'm a tab-a-holic. I have six open right now. Not bad!

Ashley said...

I would let my husband have a say on what he wants. He needs a mouse for his laptop and probably would stock up on blu rays (word to the wise, if your husband gets a blu ray player he may want to buy all his old movies again in blu ray...).

Jennifer said...

3 tabs open now, but normally have at least 6 open :)

jenmmosser at gmail dot com

Abby said...

6 tabs open. It's a slow morning!

I think I'd use the GC to buy a wireless receiver to listen to pandora/watch netflix on the tv instead of always on my using my laptop.

Laree said...

I am really rather embarrased to say that I have 22 tabs open right now!

I tend to go to my blogger dashboard, and open every post I want to read in a new tab. Then I let them load as I go through them. Plus I'm checking my email and listening to the radio.

Whew. I give my computer a workout!

yes.i.am.crazy.too At gmail Dot com

Jennifer said...

With $250, I would buy my husband two new PS3 games, a wireless mouse (he is always taking mine), and a new wireless internet router. He would be one happy guy Christmas morning!!

jenmmosser at gmail dot com

Laree said...

I'm really dorky, but my hubby is getting replacement blades for his razor this year.

Yeah. Exciting I know.


But if had had an extra 250 kicking around, he really REALLY wants StarCraft 3 for pc.

Jackman Clan said...

I have three tabs open too - but usually it's like 8! I get distracted online. asjackman(at)yahoo(dot)com

If I won I would have to get a new dvd player- ours broke, or maybe upgrade to a blue ray? Thanks for the giveaway.

smooze13 (at) aol (dot) com

Jen said...

I too have 3 tabs open! But I've played with more than 10!

My husband has a long list of tech stuff for me to get him this Christmas from Best Buy! One is an Xbox controller charger, so it can charge while he plays. Then he has a zillion cords that he needs, not to mention the games! I would just give him the gift card and save myself a headache!

Codi said...

With the gift card I would get a blueray player.

I have 5 tabs open right now. Email, and the rest are quilting blogs and my own blog. Gotta keep priorities here.

If I won the $250 card I would get some Wii games that Frank has been lusting after, and a new tennis racket controller for his beloved tennis Wii game that he broke by hitting my lamp......

And a ion water purifier.

glen: it is so healthy!

Madalyn said...

I have four tabs open. I'd probably buy something for my camera if I have 250 to spend at best buy. And a new computer mouse since my 18 month old has all but killed mine. Hubby's more of a sears man. He always wants new tools for Christmas.

1. I have 11 tabs open on my google Chrome page and I also have 5 different things open on my desktop.

7 tabs and one other window that's just one tab. Do I have a problem?

The Hoffers said...

I would buy a new lens for my Nikon D40. I only have the stock one that it came with. so I would really like to get a little more creative with my pictures especially since my little boy is going to be 1 next month and he is growing so fast I swear I take 10 pictures or more of him everyday and I work full time :)

Although I am at work so that makes a difference but i am guilty of the same behavior at home. :) I like to jump back and forth between things.

shawna_hoffer@hotmail.com

shelly said...

With the $250, I'd buy me a new, nice digital camera. Mine bit the dust when I - ahem - dropped it on vacation, and I need a new one. Maybe one that's not point-and-shoot. Imagine!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

6 tabs Love tabs!
$250, why towards another laptop of course!!!!

Amy said...

4 tabs now. Can't ever seem to have just one... Why is that?
$250?? Wow, im sure I could make that work for me somehow. :)

bdaiss said...

Oh man that's a hard choice. I really want a macro lens for my camera. But I also REALLY want a printer. And we could sure use some more in-ceiling speakers to finish off the porch. But we'd also like a PS3 (streaming Netflix!)... So many choices, so little cash flow. : )

Thanks for a chance to win. For the record, I have 30 tabs open in 3 browser windows right now. Oy!

I need to order Civ 5 for my husband...I have a responsible gaming guy though so he doesn't disappear from family life when he gets a new game. We also had fun playing Ticket to Ride - fancy board game - so I think we might try the European edition of that...

With $250 I would get my husband a waterproof digital camera. He's a fireman and he wants one he can use at work and not worry too much about. (And I want him to have one so the children will have proof that I actually exsist--I'm the one taking all the pics)

I have 7 tabs open. That wouldn't be bad if I was on my laptop, but I'm on my PC, and it's almost 8 years old. Still doing what needs done, only slowly--sort of like me now that I think about it. Is a year in PC time equal to 7 human years, like with dogs?

I would probably apply it to either a new PC, some sort of music player, or a small tv for the playroom. Or a playstation so that I could do the instant movie thing. Or something.

Oh I SOOO need a new laptop! This one overheats every 30 mins or so and is so out of memory it is slower than a snail! Ahhh!

In firefox alone I have 10 tabs going, (I'm shopping!), on my desktop another 5. I love my laptop. I'm working on lesson plans, shopping, all while sitting on the couch while my kids play board games at my feet. And they totally think I'm engaged with them. Ha.

How are the new digs shaping up?

With $250...I would buy...a few things probably. I need to have a picture of Hubby's dad (who passed away in March) framed, and he wants fireplace tools. Exciting, no?

If you come up here to shop you should let me know and maybe we could meet up for a bite or shopping for that matter.

I'm considering getting my husband Tiger Woods golf for the wii. With the gift card, though, I could also get the wii fit and Just Dance 2 for me (I mean my daughter).

I have only five tabs open now because I am NOT shopping. Shopping involves more tabs for me Ha ha. So does researching.

I would probably buy the wii fit package to go with the wii if I won the card.
Or maybe I would put it toward a new TV for the den -a flat one instead of the "heavy monster" that is there now.

I have six tabs open right now... which is not very many for me. :)

If I won -- I would try my hardest to give the gift card to my husband to get something for himself... and when he said he didn't need anything, I'd probably end up buying fabric. :)

I currently have 9 tabs open. My husband can go as high as 15! I don't like having that many in one window, so I'll open a separate window and have up to 9 - 10 tabs in each. Sad, huh?

And if I were to spend the $250 gift card, it would probably be on ipod stuff - like a converter for my car and a speaker station or something.

I sooooo need an external hard drive for all the pics eating my memory on my laptop. I would also probably buy some other techy things for my classroom...I have been wanting some wireless mice so I can have kids click in from their seats on webpages I project on the board. FUN! kendrasmom724@yahoo.com

We just bought our first house exactly one month ago so $250 could be used in a lot of different ways. But I'm thinking decorations for the kids' rooms.
