Guide to the Hottest Intel-powered Tablets for the Holidays

In just a few short years, tablets have changed the way millions entertain themselves. Free time has been forever changed by those fun-sized computers, making it easier than ever to check out television shows, movies, ebooks, and games from the comfort of the couch. But, that’s not to say all tablets are created equally – some are multimedia powerhouses made for the coffee table, while others are ready to go wherever you go on a moment’s notice. And many now allow you to enjoy all the features and programs available on a traditional laptop – from Excel to Powerpoint and more. Of course, it always helps when they’re powered by Intel processors, guaranteeing long battery life without sacrificing the processing power you’ll need for the cornucopia of entertainment you’ll be enjoying.

 Dell Venue 7 – For Those Always On the Go

If you need your tablet to be a constant companion, why not get one small enough to fit into some pockets? Public transit commuters and jetsetters alike will love the Dell Venue 7. It’s tiny, but it packs more than enough punch to handle high-quality gaming and blockbuster movies for anyone on the bus to work or flying off to their next destination, thanks to a dual-core 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor. The $150 price tag is looking awfully nice, too.

Lenovo Miix 2

Lenovo Miix 2 – For the Whole Family

Need a tablet that the whole family can share? Everyone will be pleased with the Miix 2. With a powerful Intel processor and a display that shines, the Miix 2 will suit everyone’s needs – including privacy. Each family member can carve out their own little niche on the Miix 2, with separate profiles that can be accessed using facial recognition software. A brand new 1.8 GHz Intel Atom 3700 series processor doesn’t hurt, either. This 8’’ Windows 8 tablet is modestly priced at $300.

HP Omni10

HP Omni10 – For the Ultimate Multitasker

The HP Omni10 is built for more than just entertainment.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 – For Entertainment Lovers

Know someone who can’t rest until they’ve watched an entire season of a TV show straight through? They need a Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 – a $360 10’’ tablet that makes for comfortable viewing on the couch or bed while still having a big enough screen to properly enjoy all the action. It’s lightweight, too – even after three, maybe even four episodes, their arms still won’t be that tired from holding it. That tiny frame houses a powerful 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor and also includes a year of Boingo wireless access.

Acer Iconia W4

Acer Iconia W4 – For the Chatterbox

Mobile tech has made it possible to communicate with anyone from any place, at any time. And, some of us take full advantage of that fact. The Iconia W4 is perfect for them – at home, a keyboard stand makes typing those late night emails a breeze, while a top-notch anti-glare display allows for instant messaging in broad daylight – no squinting required. Either way, there will be no concerns about performance – not with an exceptionally powerful quad-core 1.3 GHz Intel Atom 3700 series processor. And, at $300, you won’t be breaking the bank, either.

  1. It all depends on how much you can afford and how often you use a tablet. But for me I based it on my budget since for sure I want to have the fastest tablet there but if I can’t afford then that would be useless. It sure is fun reading your article.

  2. HP Omni is the best! I’ve tested it out and it surely is one of the best tablet that I’ve tried so far. The battery and the HD dislplay is remarkable.

  3. @Aime Stunton – Sorry but I have disagree because my choice will be with Samsung because of its price and high end specification. Though I am familiar that Samsung is much popular in Asia but hey try it out and compare it then you will get what I mean.

  4. I am confuse! Please can someone help me decide I guess it doesn’t matter if the gadget is a bit pricey but I want to have something that is worth buying.

  5. Dell Venue 7 is already a dual core processor plus its size DOES matter to me so when I gave it a score … I will give it a 10/10 for its price and functions.

  6. The mix 2 is pretty much impressive because of it Os running on with windows 8 though the price of 300 is a bit high for a windows gadget because it is much ideal for user to get android because I am not a big fan of windows on tablet so sorry microsoft for that.

  7. Samsung wins again for me! I love all the tablet in the list but hey we are talking about popularity so I would love to choose Samsung as the best though if you include iPAD then I might change my mind.

  8. there is no winner on the list because as what I see they have their unique qualities though the price may differ. Oh by the way I have Dell Venue 7 and its really amazing but I also would want to try other tablets. I’ll be back to add my own review about Acer Iconia W4

  9. I want to see and willing to wait that something like 7 core processor 8gig ram 1 terrabyte memory space plus 24 hours battery life <– that is a super Tablet and I wonder which brand will create it first.
