As a blogger, I really can’t be without my laptop, but I hadn’t realized how upgrading mine for work would make me a better traveler, too. My old PC was slow and unresponsive. It would freeze and take forever to load videos. It wasn’t just annoying; it was affecting my productivity. It made planning travel stressful and it made posting about it a much longer process than it needed to be.
When I read that there was a 40% performance jump between 7th Gen and 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor, and that the 8th Gen performed two times better compared to a 5-year-old PC, I knew it was time to get a new one. So I headed straight to Best Buy and bought my new Lenovo Yoga 720… and haven’t looked back! Here are four ways a more powerful PC made me a better traveler:
1. Streaming video reviews of hotels is fun again
I can stream high-quality video reviews of hotels while planning my trips. Downloading and streaming videos of all kinds was a major pain with my old computer. The content was too rich for my old processor. With an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor, I can easily watch video reviews before booking my trips and I can also binge watch Netflix for up to 10 hours on the plane without ever needing to plug in! It makes working away from an outlet easy, too.
2. Surfing the web at lightning speed rules
I don’t have to wait for webpages to load to learn about my destination. I don’t have to think twice about websites taking too long to load or running the latest apps now. I know I’ve got a super powerful processor that can quickly download and run Trip Wolf, Expedia, My Trips, and others. With an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor I can also sync content across devices which really helps keep me organized.
3. Shopping online is a breeze
I can quickly and securely shop for clothes and gear I need for trips. The rise of cybercrime, identity theft, and viruses is a real fear of mine, but thanks to my new PC’s built-in security, entering my passwords, browsing the web, and making online payments is safer than ever. I can now make secure payments using fingerprint recognition! And my new computer provides fast data encryption to keep my information safe without slowing me down. I know that my banking, shopping, and bill-paying is safe thanks to my new Lenovo Yoga 720 with 8th Gen Intel Core processor.
4. Editing photos and videos couldn’t be simpler
When I get back from my trips, that’s when the real work begins! I can now edit photos and videos in dramatically less time than before. I can work on several things at once and then share it all in record time. No spinning wheel!
Sometimes travel means unplugging from the rest of the world, but I want that to happen on my terms and not because my computer just can’t cut it! If you’ve been thinking about trading in your old PC for a faster one, now’s the time to do it. The 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processor is designed to help you keep up with the digital world. I’ve never had a more responsive and powerful PC, and in today’s fast-paced world, I don’t want my PC to slow me down.
