I’m a mom. I literally use my tablet ALL DAY LONG. Therefore, there are certain features my tablet needs to have in order to do all I need it to do throughout the day.
First and foremost, it needs to have a good battery life. Obviously it’s not going to help me get the job done if I have to plug it in throughout the day!
Next, I need to be able to switch between apps quickly, and without losing any work or progress, so I can be as productive as possible!
The tablet needs to be fast! I do a lot of streaming, and downloading of large content. I can’t be in the middle of a workout, and then wait for the tablet to buffer!
I like using Windows tablets as well as Android.
For these main reasons, I choose Intel Tablets! So, let me take you through my super productive day with my tablet with an Intel processor!
I start out my day with my FitBit silent alarm waking me up at 6 AM. I roll over and grab my tablet and open up my scriptures. I read scriptures first thing in the morning. It helps me start out my day on the right foot.
Once I’m done with that, I check that off my to do list app, and head downstairs for my workout. I load up the DailyBurn app on my tablet and start the sweating!
As soon as that is completed, I check the lunch schedule for my kids school and ask if they want home lunch or school lunch.
Now that the kids are off to school, I am able to get some work done. I work full time.
It’s getting closer to the end of my work day, and it’s time to get started on dinner. I load up PepperPlate and start cooking!
Once dinner is over it’s time to get my daughter ready for swim practice! While she’s at swim I am able to write a blog post, or clean up my inbox… or I can just sit down with NextIssue and read a magazine.
Swim is over, it’s time to get the kids ready for bed. We open up the Kindle app, and I read them a bedtime story.
If I have overdone it on the food during the day, I’ll load up Hulu or Netflix on my tablet, and hit the treadmill in the garage!
You can see that the tablet gets used…. and it gets used a LOT! I love that not only can I consume media such as books, magazines, videos, websites, etc, but I can also use it as a day planner. There used to be a time where you could pry my paper day planner out of my cold dead hands. I have been using a paper day planner since I was about 12. I also love that the Acer is just the right size. It’s small enough to fit nicely into even my small purse, yet powerful enough to do all that I need it to do throughout the day!
I never thought I’d love tablets as much as I have come to love them when they first hit the market. Now I can’t see my life without one!
