New tech devices make the perfect gift for your grad

(BPT) - Years of hard work have all led to this moment; your loved one is graduating. This is a special time in his or her life. It marks an end to past successes and the doorway to new challenges and opportunities. As you celebrate this wonderful event, you may be wondering how to find the perfect gift for your grad. If you want something that showcases the importance of your loved one's accomplishment but also sets him or her up for the future, then new technology is a great choice.

Not sure what new technology devices are best for the grad in your life? The ideas listed below can help you find the perfect gift for your grad and provide a treasured present he or she will use on the road ahead.

* Tablets. Tablets offer your grad the opportunity to experience everything the Web has to offer in the palm of a hand. Boasting all-day battery life, Intel-powered tablets offer lightning-fast Web browsing, super-responsive apps and seamless downloads so your grad can do anything on the go. Tablets powered by Intel come in a wide range of designs, sizes and prices and run either Windows or Android. Check out the Dell Venue 8 Pro and the Toshiba Encore 8 for some great tablet options.

* 2 in 1 devices. For the grad who is looking to have it all, a 2 in 1 device offers the experience of a PC and a tablet all in one sleek device. The latest 2 in 1 devices powered by the 4th generation Intel Core processor feature 50 percent better battery life, offering up to nine hours in some systems so you can leave the power cord behind. Busy grads will love being able to use their 2 in 1 device in laptop form when they need to be productive and get work done, and then as a tablet when they want to sit back and be entertained. Looking for the latest models? The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S and the Acer Aspire R7 are two popular options.

Portable all-in-one PCs. Does your grad have an old desktop computer just gathering dust in the corner? Upgrade them to a portable all-in-one PC, like the HP ENVY Rove or the Dell XPS 18. Combining the performance of a full PC with tablet-like capabilities, and offering a clutter-free design that responds quickly to touch, Intel-powered portable all-in-one PCs are the ultimate entertainment and social hub for your grad and are perfect for getting work done or enjoying game nights.

The right device for your grad should be one that not only best fits his or her lifestyle and computing needs but is also a cool, new piece of technology that will let them know you're proud of all they've accomplished. To learn more about the latest devices to choose from, visit
