AMD VISION Technology Review

AMD VISION TechnologyDo you put much thought into a computer when making the purchase? I will be honest, I usually do not, but then again, I have only owned 3 computers in my life time. Our first computer we purchased in 2000, it was an 800mhz desktop. When we first purchased it we was super thrilled, at the time is was super fast. However, as the years passed it seemed like it slowed down.

Then in 2007 I was going shopping for my first laptop. I had in mind the one I was wanting, however the store was out, so I purchased one they had in stock. Big mistake, I am all about pictures and entertainment, and games. This computer was faster then the older one, but I was still unable to do some of the things I was wanting to do.

Recently, I was introduced to AMD VISION Technology. AMD sent me an HP Pavilion dv5 to test out their Premium VISION Technology.

After having hands on experience with AMD VISION Premium Technology, I will never purchase a computer without looking at the labels. Since receiving this laptop in the mail, I have been extremely impressed with how the laptop runs.

My Personal Opinion:

I love how AMD has everything laid out for the consumers, it really makes purchasing a new computer a lot less stressful. With me being a busy home schooling mom, it is extremely important that I have a laptop that gives me the ability to multi-task, and that I can count on to last. After all we do most of our schooling on the computer. Now not only am I able to run Gillian’s schooling, I am now also able to work on reviews, and use facebook.

I think the one thing I love the most about the AMD Premium VISION Technology, is the quality of movies, and TV shows, Gillian and I will lay in bed and watch different shows on the built in program that allows us to easily access

I also love the webcam ability, and the software that has came with the computer. Below is a picture of Gillian and I. I took this the other day before going out with a friend.

The picture on this laptop is super crisp and clear. Playing games no longer makes me want to scream, because of the slow pace of the computer, and I can honestly say, my browser doesn’t freeze no more!

We will be purchasing a desktop with in the next few months for my husband, I am thinking more a long the lines of the AMD Black VISION. He is big into gaming, and I think this would be perfect in every way for him. I am extremely pleased with AMD VISION Technology, and I will be letting friends, and family know to start paying better attention when making big purchases. No one wants to waste money on a computer that is not what they are needing.

Still not convinced that AMD VISION Technology is the way to go? Check out the VISION Interactive Storyteller.
