Still Seeking the Perfect Gift for that Special Someone on Your Holiday List?

The holiday shopping season is in full swing. Are you still seeking that perfect holiday gift for the loved one on your list?

This year, touch-enabled Ultrabook convertibles inspired by Intel (which blend performance, responsiveness and sleek designs with a premium computing experience) and Intel-based tablet devices (which are thin, highly-portable, have all-day battery life and are easy to use with advanced touch-screen capabilities) offer a refreshing take on mobile computing without sacrificing performance or style.

With 20 Intel-based tablet devices and more than 70 touch-enabled Ultrabook systems on the market to choose from, there’s something for everyone on your list…

  • BUSINESS PROFESSIONALS will appreciate the Lenovo ThinkPad Twist Ultrabook convertible device. It’s a business laptop with, well, a twist. An innovative hinge connecting the screen and the keyboard allows the screen to swivel around and then down, transforming the laptop into a tablet. Swivel the screen again, give it a flip, and suddenly the keyboard becomes a stand for the screen – perfect for presentations.  The ASUS TaiChi 21 Ultrabook convertible device is also a good choice as it offers two screens (one being a touch screen on the outside of the lid) that can operate independently and be used simultaneously for a host of innovative new applications.
  • For the WORLD TRAVELERS on your list, consider the Intel-based HP Envy X2 tablet. At just 0.33” thick, it’s the thinnest Windows 8 tablet on the market. The device effortlessly runs Windows 8 programs, and its brushed aluminum shell gives off an air of superiority that will surely be the envy of fellow passengers. This lightweight, but mighty, device can easily slip inside luggage without adding bulk. The Intel-based Acer Iconia W510 tablet is also a good choice with its sleek and lightweight design that offers up to 18 hours of use on one charge and can last up to three weeks on standby power.
  • For the MULTI-TASKERS in your life, check out the Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook convertible. The device comes with Intel Smart Connect Technology that seamlessly synchronizes email and social networks even when the system is in sleep mode – conserving power and battery life, and keeping the user connected on the go. As a bonus, the device turns into a tablet by rotating its touchscreen inside the screen’s frame – like a high-tech Ferris wheel. The frame then doubles as a stand for the screen when the device is in movie-watching mode. And that’s just the beginning of the technical goodies that the device brings.
  • For the person who loves to ENTERTAIN, consider the svelte Toshiba Satellite U925T Ultrabook convertible that comes with Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) technology that wirelessly streams content to the large screen of a compatible TV, perfect for sharing photos and videos with friends and family. This device also has anti-finger coating on scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass as well as stereo speakers enhanced by SRS Premium Sound 3D.
  • For the FASHIONISTAS who want something functional but also stylish, check out the Intel-based Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T tablet in the mystic blue color. As a bonus, the device offers 9.4 hours of continuous video play and nearly 13.5 hours of battery life – perfect for keeping your tablet on display all day.
  • For the STUDENTS on your list, check out the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Ultrabook convertible. Not only does it come in a stylish Clementine orange color, but it has a unique 360-degree flip-and-fold design that will amaze classmates as it allows the devices to be used in 4 modes – notebook, touch-screen tablet, tent mode, or a stand. The device also comes pre-loaded with applications such as Amazon Kindle, Evernote, McAfee AntiVirus Plus, Microsoft Office 2012 Optimized, and Skype.

And all the devices come with Intel Anti-Theft technology making it possible to remotely lock down the device if it’s lost or stolen to keep personal information personal. If recovered, the device can be quickly reactivated to full functionality.
