Intel’s holiday buyer’s guide rounds up the best Windows 8.1 devices
If you’re looking for a new tablet, laptop, 2-in-1 device or all-in-one system you might want to take a look at Intel’s new Holiday Buying Guide. The chipmaker has put together a 20-page PDF brochure featuring products from the likes of ASUS, Dell, Lenovo, Sony, HP, and Samsung.
Divided into sections, starting with 2-in-1 Devices, the guide tells you a bit about that particular type of system, and then presents a selection of shiny new hardware vying for your attention (and hard earned cash) this holiday season.
Each page contains a photo of the featured device, alongside the all-important details including operating system (Windows 8.1 in the majority of cases, although Intel includes a single Chromebook for variety), processor type, battery life, and price.
The full list of devices included in the guide is as follows:
- ASUS Transformer Book T100
- Dell Venue 11 Pro
- Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro
- Sony VAIO Tap 11
- Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S
- Dell XPS 11
- Dell Venue 7
- Dell Venue 8 Pro
- Lenovo Miix 2
- HP Omni 10
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1
- Acer Chromebook C720
- Sony VAIO Tap 21
At the start of the brochure Intel says: "There’s a lot to choose from (and salivate over) this holiday season. Take a look inside the 2013 Intel Holiday Gift Guide to see the latest tech eye candy". But it’s not just "tech eye candy" on display -- every device is photographed alongside real candy (such as cupcakes, humbugs and doughnuts) so you might want to avoid browsing the selection on an empty stomach.
The guide is available to view or download here.
