Ever since Sam was very little, he has loved computers and gaming. He delights in telling me all about his latest quest in his favorite games and how his characters are doing and what’s on in the worlds he’s created.
Even if I don’t understand all the things going on inside these games, I love watching Sam enjoy himself. His excitement is totally contagious when he gets revved up about a new game.
He’s also recently started a YouTube channel with a friend — he’s got his sites on an online community bigger than his mama’s! 🙂 It’s so fun to watch the boys create content and bring their ideas to life.
Of course, in order to fully enjoy gaming, content creation or streaming, a high-quality computer is required. That’s where the Intel® Gamer Days at Walmart comes in.
For Sam, gaming is part of his social world. Not only does he get excited playing his favorite games, but it’s also a way to connect with friends. He plays with friends from school online and then they also discuss their adventures in person. More and more often, when friends are over, they’re busy gaming together.
Now that he has started his YouTube channel, he and his buddy work on filming and uploading content every few days as well, which is becoming another key component in his social world.
Before, gaming meant needing a desktop computer because many portable options didn’t have the quality graphics and performance desired for gaming. This isn’t always practical to have a designated area for a big desktop. That’s one of the problems we’ve run into with Sam.
But now Intel has the solution! They’re launching the new family of 9th Gen Intel® Core™ mobile processor family (H-series). This new set of high-end mobile processors give gamers desktop-like performance in a portable laptop device.
To game, stream, and record without compromise, you need a laptop with a powerful Intel® Core™ i5 processor inside. The Lenovo, MSI or ASUS ROG Gaming Notebook is the perfect gaming laptop, since they are built with Intel® Core™ processors, providing the best gaming experience on a laptop.
No matter what you’re recording, streaming, or what game you’re playing, you’ll enjoy a flawless performance with these devices.
With the Intel® Gamer Days at Walmart, you can select the perfect device for your needs at fantastic savings.
I may or may not have snuck Sam’s Lenovo laptop a couple of times to use for myself — it helps me multitask so easily thanks to Intel®’s new line up of Core™ i5 processors.
Sam has a Lenovo Legion Y540 15.6″ Gaming Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7-9750H and Hexa-Core Processor. This system also boasts an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660Ti 6GB Graphics Card, 16GB Memory, 512GB PCIe SSD Storage.
It’s amazing how sleek and portable this laptop is for the performance it delivers.
It also is thermally optimized to run cooler and quieter with a full-sized white backlit keyboard. The Lenovo™ Legion Y540 Laptop is primed for those who demand to game wherever life takes them!
You can also add Intel® Optane™ memory to your system. It can help accelerate game launches and level loading in a highly responsive system with plenty of space to locally store your whole game library.
Sam loves heading to his room to game with his new device. We were previously sharing a computer room, so I’m thrilled he has a portable, high-power option that he can take in the other room while I’m working. 😉
His favorite spot has quickly become his bed — he heads into his room with a snack and headphones regularly.
These sour patch grapes are a favorite for him. I grab fresh grapes at the store and then shake them up in a baggie with his favorite flavors of Jello powder. The result is an irresistible sweet and sour treat. I love that he’s munching on that instead of candy!
With all the power offered thanks to Intel, I suggest heading to Walmart right away to check out the amazing devices and deals they have for Intel® Gamer Days. Your favorite gamer will be so glad you did!
