Hello from the Winter Wonderland Technology Showcase in the heart of New York City! This morning I had the pleasure to host a media tour coast to coast alongside some of the biggest go-to names in technology all powered by Intel. If you couldn't t get to this exclusive event or perhaps you saw it and now are looking for some additional details -- I’ve put together some of my favorite gift suggestions and upcoming deals!
With the Consumer Technology Association noting that 68% of consumers will be purchasing tech devices this year (up 6% from last year) I was not surprised to see that laptops are at the very top of the list. Here are three hot ones to keep your eye on.
