Chip Shot: Intel Survey Finds Americans Are Stifling Creativity on Outdated Computing Devices

Americans are keeping their old technology devices long after they are useful, according to an Intel survey conducted by TNS to explore digital behavior. One in four Americans keep outdated technology devices because they contain important information they want to continue to access (such as photos, videos and music). While the majority of Americans consider themselves both digitally creative and tech-savvy, a disproportionate number of people are stifling their creativity by locking away their data on old technology and burdening themselves by continuing to use devices that are slow and bulky. Today’s Intel-powered tablets, 2 in 1 devices, and portable all-in-one PCs are exponentially faster, lighter and more powerful, allowing users to unleash their creativity and work more productively. Whether spring or summer cleaning or searching for the perfect gift for mom, dad or a favorite grad, now is a great time to organize digital clutter and refresh outdated technology.
