6 Ways Our Family Laptop Brings Us Together
Technology is a huge part of our daily lives. We use it for everything from cooking and entertainment to work and travel planning.
It’s actually something that often brings us together on the weekends.
As a busy work-at-home mom with a family that uses technology for many things, I depend on our family laptop for a lot. I’ll be honest, we also expect our computers to be quick and do everything we want them to do!
If you’re looking for ways to put your family laptop to good use and help bring your family closer together, follow these six steps to turn your weekend into a time of bonding with help from a Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 with the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor!
Start the day with kids in the kitchen!
One of best ways to start a Saturday morning is making breakfast together! Grambo and the kids like to try new recipes and see what tasty things they can whip up.
Lately, they’ve been working on desserts but they also make some amazing cinnamon rolls that they learned how to make together!
Our Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 is a huge help because it’s a 2-in-1 so we can use it as a tablet to watch recipe videos while we cook! The versatility of the 2-in-1 as our family laptop has been amazing!
We get the performance without the bulk. It’s like having a desktop that is thin, light, and go anywhere we go!
Being able to stream a recipe video while the kids make it with my mom is something our old family laptop couldn’t do as well as the Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 with the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor. The long battery life means they can watch any video they want while they take over Saturday morning breakfast responsibilities!
Bonding time and one less thing on my list of things to do!
Relaxing and playing games with Dad.
When we’re not in the middle of baseball season, Saturday mornings are usually a time for hanging out. It’s our downtime.
Don’t be afraid to take some downtime with your family on the weekends. Enjoy breakfast together and then relax and have a little fun together. My kids love to sit with Justin and play games on the family laptop.
He’s a gamer at heart and it’s one of the ways that they can all have a good time together.
The 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor really turns our computer into an entertainment hub for the whole family.
They can move between programs quickly and it has all the processing power needed to run all of the latest apps and games.
Get your fantasy football lineups set!
In our house, mom and dad bond over a little bit of competition. Fantasy football is the name of the game for Justin and I.
The family laptop comes to the rescue for this task too! We’re able to easily multi-task and switch back and forth between the different resources we use to find the perfect fantasy football team line up!
We have a good time playing the game together. It’s a fun way to bond as a couple.
Sometimes work has to be done.
Even on the weekends, there is often work to be done.
I make sure to take my time with my family and make them the priority before I tackle any weekend work that I might have.
The great thing about our new Dell family laptop is that it makes many of the things I do every day for the blog quicker and easier for me!
I can perform tasks like editing photos and videos in less time. Since I edit photos almost every single day, this has made a dramatic difference in my work time.
The touchscreen is another amazing addition to my work life as well! I like having more control at my fingertips since it’s what I’m used to on my phone!
Oh, and I can also stream all the music I want while I work with no buffering or stuttering! It makes the time I spend working pretty enjoyable!
Dinner delivered right to our door.
I’ll be completely honest about Saturday nights at our house. No matter how easy the recipe might be, I never really want to cook.
In the warmer months, Justin will usually take over and do some grilling.
Otherwise, Saturday night is usually about ordering dinner in. We love spending time together on the weekends and it’s so relaxing to just order a meal for delivery.
The Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 with the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor handles this little task like it’s nothing and keeps our Saturday nights all about relaxing and spending time together!
Make it a movie night!
The last step in a making Saturday a great family day with help from your family laptop is family movie night!
One of my favorite things about having a 2-in-1 with an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor is the way it streams video for us. The speed is amazing compared to our old computers.
We can download and stream movies and TV shows that just didn’t look as good before.
Plus, we can also binge watch for up to 10 hours without plugging the computer in! I love that because it means our Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 would even be perfect for when we travel!
But wrapping up a day together with a movie night is one of my favorite ways to spend time together! It’s just a great ending to a really good day!
It was easy to find our new Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 with the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor at Best Buy. We were able to find the computer that would work the best for our family!
The truth was that we were beyond ready for a new computer. Recently I had to use our old family laptop to pull some information and between the time it took to boot up and then load what I needed, I wanted to cry.
Yes, I’m impatient when it comes to my technology.
I put off getting a new computer for as long as I could. I don’t think I realized all of the ways that the new 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor would help our family enjoy our time together even more!
Now it’s even harder to wait for Saturday!
