Next week, it's going to be an exciting week. I was recently offered the opportunity from Developer Media and Intel to get my geeky hands on a reference Haswell Ultrabook. Of course, it's not all fun and games, I do have to do a review of it, up to at least three posts, totaling 1,450 words. But in the end, assuming I follow through, I get to keep it. Now that's a deal...
This will be a new endeavor. I've done a number of book reviews, but never a "real" hardware review. So man, I have to like, you know, write! Actually generate content! Yeah, I know, going to be a stretch for a web curator like me. :P
Next week? In my inbox is the shipping notice, Tuesday is the big day. Nothing like getting a new piece of shinny new, cutting edge hardware!
Here's the post planned schedule:
- Part 0 - "Haswell is coming...", July 20 [This Post]
- Part 1 - "Hello Haswell" - Unboxing and initial impressions, July 27/28
- Part 2 - "Life with Haswell" - A couple week with Haswell, August 17/18
- Part 3 - "It's been a Haswell Summer", September 7/8
See you next weekend!
