Spring Forward with a New PC! Win an Asus TAICHI Ultrabook

Spring is in the air, and that means that it’s time for a good spring cleaning. But it’s not just your closet that could use a good cleaning, but perhaps your technology too. And for some, that just might mean getting a new PC. Not sure if it’s time for an upgrade? You might want to ask yourself these questions – Do you down a cup of coffee in the time it takes to boot up your PC in the morning? Do you spend minutes watching the status bar inch its way to 100 percent or stare at the hourglass while your PC struggles to download a movie? Are you hauling your charger everywhere because your PC won’t hold a charge for more than an hour at a time? If you said yes to any of those answers, you’re not alone. Around the world, people are complaining about their old devices. As a matter of fact, Intel found that more than 300 million computers around the world are over 4-years-old, including one third of U.S. PCs, and 65% of these older PCs are actually desktop PCs.  And these are the most common pain points:

  • 39 percent say their 4-year-old PC is outdated.
  • 36 percent say their 4-year-old PC freezes when running too many applications.
  • 33 percent their old PC takes too long to boot up.
  • 28 percent say their old PC is too slow for their needs.

One thing is for sure, and that is that a ton of advancements have happened in the world of PCs over the past 4 years. Compared to 4 years ago, PCs are cheaper ($200 less), faster (edit and share an HD video in 2 minutes or less compared to an hour on an older device), sleeker (average PC now weight 3 pounds vs. 7.3 pounds), and now come in a variety of different form factors including the sleek Ultrabook. And over the past few years, Intel’s advancements in processor technology have introduced many Ultrabooks with fun form-factors, including the dual display Asus TAICHI convertible Ultrabook.

We’re giving away the Asus TAICHI here, and there are several ways to enter to win. But if you submit a photo which shows why you need to “refresh” your old laptop or desktop PC. – This will get you the most entry points!

    My current desktop is a fossil. I swear it was probably hand built by Thomas Edison himself. Slow start up, pages not loading properly etc, etc. This computer needs the “Office Space” treatment something fierce. I’ve got a baseball bat so…the ball is now in your court.

    My desktop is only 4 years old but it takes 5 to to min to boot. Today it froze, I had to hard boot it, it rebooted, wouldn’t recognize my mouse, I had the use my keyboard to log out, and it uptime tally made me late for school. I start college in the fall and need a new light laptop.

  • http://twitter.com/DirtyLilCard Lathan Card

    If I was my laptop I was waiting to boot I would take of a reading assignment and start it because my laptop would take 8 to 15 mi to boot Vista. This was miserable so I spent $250 on a solid state hybrid drive, 4gb of ddr2 ram, and Windows 8 pro. My laptop now boots is 15 seconds max. Although it has some new problems. The display died 2 days after the upgrades and if I unplug my “portable” dies instantly. It needs an $175 display panel and a $150 battery and who knows what will die next. I need a new laptop for college in the fall.

  • http://twitter.com/DirtyLilCard Lathan Card

    This happened to my laptop two days after I installed windows 8, 4 gb of ra,, and a solid state hybrid drive. I spent $250 on parts and software. Now my 7 year old Paton needs a $175 display panel and a $150 battery. If you unplug it it instantly dies. My laptop is 17.3 inched and weighs over 8 pounds. I need a new, fast, and functional laptop for college in the fall. Please.

  • https://twitter.com/BionicSix Mario

    Why you need to “refresh” your old laptop or desktop PC?

    1. Three operating systems behind the current OS.

    2. Stuck keys.

    3. Optical disc drive is sometimes operational.

    I’ll tell you why I need to refresh my old laptop, because it’s an absolutely old, hand-me down, hand-me down MacBook from my two older siblings is absolutely terrible. The battery is dead and I don’t wanna pay $150 to get a new battery, so I gotta leave it’s MagSafe plugged in (TAPED to the side) of the laptop so it doesn’t suddenly fall off and ruin everything I’m typing.

    It’s got cracks just about everywhere, and some of the number keys don’t even work because of dirt/coffee damage that I need to use an onscreen keyboard thingy just to type #s out. There’s no SD card slot and thing can barely run a browser without crashing. The hard drive also makes a weird scratching sound, which I presume means it’s about to die.

    I need a new laptop because this one is like 7 yrs old or something!! Help me CC! Love you guys!

    I can’t load the newest add-ons to my photoshop due to the oldness of my desktop. Love it, but at 8 years old, it really needs an upgrade.
