technology_upgrades(BPT)—The holidays are over and if you’re left looking at a fruit cake and a room full of white elephant gifts, you’re probably thinking it is time to find the perfect present for yourself.

Like many adults, you want to treat yourself to a little technology. You’re not alone. Laptops and tablets were the two most-wanted electronic gifts during the holiday season, according to research from the Consumer Electronics Association’s annual CE Holiday Purchase Patterns Study. If you’re looking to give yourself the gift of tech this post-holiday season, here are some things to look for to get you started on your search.

Tablets. Tablets offer you the opportunity to experience everything the Web has to offer in the palm of your hand. Boasting all day battery life, Intel-powered tablets offer lightning-fast Web browsing, super-responsive apps and seamless downloads so you can do anything on the go. Tablets running Intel come in a wide range of designs, sizes and prices and run either Windows or Android.

2 in 1 devices. For the person who is looking to have it all, a 2 in 1 device offers you the experience of a PC and a tablet all in the same package. The latest 2 in 1 devices powered by the 4th generation Intel Core processor deliver a 50 percent improvement in battery life, offering up to nine hours in some systems. These systems can wake up approximately eight times faster, handle everyday computing tasks roughly four times faster, and make video editing and sharing about 16 times faster than a similar four-year-old PC. 2 in 1s powered by the latest Intel Atom processor (Bay Trail) offer twice the speed and triple the graphics performance than previous generations of Atom. All of these devices are perfect for busy people who need to take their device everywhere but don’t want to compromise on computing performance – it’s a laptop when you need to be productive and get work done, and then a tablet when you want to sit back and be entertained.

Portable All-in-One PCs: Do you have an old desktop PC just gathering dust in the corner of your home? Upgrade to a portable all-in-one PC for a system that combines the performance of a full PC, inside a sleek screen with tablet-like capabilities, and offers a clutter-free design that responds quickly to touch. These systems are the ultimate entertainment and social hub for your home and life and are perfect for families and game nights.
