Get Rid of the Digital Clutter

Do you have digital clutter? Devices in the home that are not your go-to device, but are gathering dust in the corner, or used like a digital library for your favorite photos, videos and information? If so, you are not alone.

Almost half of Americans (47 percent) are keeping their old tech devices long after they are useful, according to a new Intel survey. One in four Americans keep these outdated devices because they contain important information such as photos, videos and music that they aren’t certain how to transfer to a new device and still want to be able to access from time-to-time.

The survey also found that while the majority of Americans consider themselves both creative and tech-savvy, a disproportionate number of people are stifling this creativity by locking away their data (photos, videos and information) on old devices and also hindering productivity by using slow, bulky, outdated machines. Sound familiar?

This rings true to many. We consider ourselves creative and have lengthy digital “to do” lists including things like creating a photo montage of our last family vacation, making an annual digital scrapbook for the kids or editing all of our favorite video footage into one long home movie. But the task seems overwhelming to many who have old, bulky and outdated tech. These systems are slow, take a long time to boot up and can make editing photos and videos quite a challenge, if not impossible.

Now is the perfect time to organize your digital clutter and refresh outdated technology. The latest Intel-powered personal computing devices, including tablets, 2 in 1 devices and portable all-in-one PCs, are exponentially faster, lighter and more powerful allowing users to unleash their creativity and get a fresh start on their digital “to do” list.

Are you guilty of gadget hoarding and using outdated technology? Don’t let it hold you back any longer. Check out some of the latest Intel-based devices on the market to help make your life smarter, faster and simpler.
