Tips to help you find the right device this holiday season
(NC) — Choice is abundant this holiday season, especially so when it comes to technology. Topping many holiday wish lists this year are tablets, PCs and 2 in 1s. While there are options for everyone, the selection of choices often results in confusion. What gift is the right gift?
“It's essential to know how the person you are buying for wants to use their new device,” says Joe Ellis, Market Development Manager of Intel Canada. “Then you can really start to dive deeper into whether a tablet, computer or 2 in 1 is the perfect fit for that special someone.”
Ellis goes on to suggest that once you have a sense of how the device will be used, you need to match it with the best device for their needs. In general, tablets, computers and 2 in 1s are used in the following ways:
• Tablet: Activities such as online browsing, watching movies and playing games
• Computer: An all-encompassing device that can help keep track of just about everything from household budgets, to school reports to streaming movies.
• 2 in 1: Offers the fun of a tablet with the productivity of a traditional PC in a single device.
Once you have honed-in on how the device will be used and which is the right fit, it's time to start shopping. These final tips will help you on your way:
• Research: before you enter the store find out what your options are
• Prioritize: Decide which features matter most based on how the tablet, PC or 2 in 1 will be used. Often battery life, performance and portability top the list of must-have features
• Test Drive: In the store make sure you not only ask questions based on your research but take the time to play with the product yourself. Stores often have great demo areas and experts on-hand to show you how experience differs from product to product
