Santa Clara, Calif., April 22, 2014 – Years of hard work have led to this moment. You’re graduating. You have suffered through 8 a.m. classes, drowned in 20-page papers and possibly spent nights frustrated about delays caused by using outdated technology. Graduation marks the end of your college experience, the beginning of the next stage of your life, and an opportunity to de-clutter your digital life and upgrade your technology to set you up for success.
Do you still have that clunky device from freshman year that has your first English essay saved on it, as well as your lengthy music collection and photos of you and your friends from the dorm? Is it slowing you down when you want to be productive, or keeping you from an enjoyable experience when you want to entertained?
A recent Intel survey fielded by TNS revealed that younger Americans (ages 18-34 years old) are the nation’s creative class with a staggering 81 percent wishing they could do more with their devices, including creating art, making music, quickly producing photo and video montages and being able to easily share content from compute device to other screens such as HDTVs.
Graduation marks a time to start fresh. A time to do more with your digital memories. It’s a great chance to add a technology upgrade to your graduation gift wish list, or use the money you get at your graduation party to purchase a new device that reflects the fast-pace lifestyle that awaits you. Check out the list below for some of the coolest technology devices available today.
Tablets: Tablets offer the opportunity to experience the Web in the palm of your hand. Boasting all-day battery life, Intel-powered tablets offer lightning-fast browsing, super-responsive apps and seamless downloads so you can enjoy entertainment or be productive on the go. You can multitask effortlessly by editing photos, streaming online videos, updating presentations and playing rich immersive games, all on one thin and light device. The Acer Iconia A1-830 and Toshiba Encore 8 are two great tablet options.
2 in 1 Devices: You no longer need to make an “and/or” decision when it comes to deciding what technology to buy next. Intel-powered 2 in 1 devices offer the mobility of a tablet combined with the power of laptop in one sleek device. Simply detach, flip or slide a 2 in 1 device to go from work to play. You can run full versions of the most advanced photo and video editing software, use popular programs that help get tasks done, enjoy favorite media applications, sync MP3 devices and playlists, and more.

Portable All-in-One PCs: If your old desktop computer just won’t cut it after graduation, upgrade to a portable all-in-one PC like the HP ENVY Rove20 or Dell XPS 18. Combining the performance of a full PC with tablet-like capabilities, and offering a clutter-free and touch-responsive design, Intel-powered portable all-in-one PCs are perfect for getting work done and are also the ultimate entertainment and social hub for game nights and sharing photos and videos.
