Intel Raises the Bar for What an Always-Connected PC should be

Chris WalkerBy Chris Walker

We live in a connected, mobile world. Today, it’s not a luxury but an increasing expectation that your PC can be “always on.” More and more, we want our PC with us and at the ready to help us create, do, have fun, connect with others and express ourselves.

We’re sure that’s little surprise to you, and it’s certainly no surprise to us. Intel has predicted and planned for this day for years. We’ve talked a lot lately about the growing interconnectedness of things and devices and the leading technology we’re creating on 5G, and PC connectivity is a central part of that. After all, the most modern PC is portable, always connected and built to give you the rich, powerful, true PC experience you’ve come to expect to help you do and be your best – with battery power that runs all day.

But we get that adding LTE connectivity to your PC is sometimes complicated or even expensive. The exciting news is that industries are evolving to solve. Telecommunications companies are starting to make adding a PC to data plans easier than ever. New technologies built into your PC will make signing up a one-click process. Intel is evolving, too: We’ve been amidst a rapid acceleration of innovation that not only modernizes PCs but brings full PC performance to tiny, thin and light PCs.

On that note, let’s talk about our device partners’ role in this. Across markets, from the U.S. to China, they’re creating beautiful and super thin PCs with us – available today and more are coming soon – that let you have it all: powerful Intel performance and full Windows experiences in amazingly thin, light and always-connected PCs.

Recently, Samsung’s Galaxy Book 12 became available for purchase through Verizon in the U.S. This thin and light 2 in 1 PC is built with powerful 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processors and always-on Intel 4G LTE connectivity, and it comes with full Windows 10 inside. Samsung added its multifunctional S Pen and a backlit keyboard. It also integrated its Samsung Flow technology, which lets Galaxy Book connect to your Samsung smartphone seamlessly to transfer and sync files, and read and respond to messages and notifications. This innovative premium device delivers power and performance from any location.

Samsung’s Galaxy Book is a great example of the always-connected PC, delivering what we’ve envisioned for years and what we’ve heard you say you need. Exceedingly powerful. Always connected. Mobile. Personal. Rich with true PC experiences you expect like Windows, apps and peripherals, and proven to be compatible and trusted to work. A device that makes you more productive, more creative and more connected from any place you need or wish to be.

Right now, over 30 always-connected PCs with powerful Intel performance are available to you – the  Mi Notebook Air 13.3” and the Lenovo ThinkPad L470 are a couple of great choices for business and everyday life. All of them meet our standard for what a truly mobile, always-connected PC with long battery life should be. You get to choose.

We’re living in an exciting time for the PC, and we’re proud to play a role. PC innovation is what we do and make possible with our exceptional partners, to help you do what you need from any location.
