With the holiday season just around the corner, there’s never been a better time to start thinking about investing in new hardware. But when looking at laptops, tablets and hybrids, the choice can be a little overwhelming. To help make things a little easier — and obviously to steer customers toward particular products — Intel has put together a buying guide.
So, if you’re stumped for ideas about what to buy for yourself or a loved one, Intel has a few ideas for you. As we’re in 2013, Intel has chosen to highlight 13 devices, many of which come with Windows 8.1.
The “Technology is Sweeter this Holiday Season” brochure is split up into various section, so whether you’re looking for a 2-in-1 device (a tablet with an optional keyboard) or a more traditional laptop, there should be something to whet your appetite.
2-in-1 devices include the ASUS Transformer Book T100 and start at just $349, but there are also higher end devices features such as the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro. At $999.99, this is at the more expensive end of the scale, but offers a quite unique four different operating modes — named Laptop, Tablet, Stand and Tent by Lenovo.
Although featured in the buying guide is the Sony VAIO Tap 11 which is described as the world’s thinnest Windows 8 Tablet PC. The cheapest device in the list is the Dell Venue 8 Pro, a tablet that costs just $299.99 but offers an impressive 10 hours of battery life.
