Get help choosing the right gift from Microsoft, Intel and Best Buy on Twitter

Give yourself an evening off as you plan for the holiday season and join us for a special Twitter chat on Tuesday December 16th at 8pm EST. We’ll be joined by experts from Microsoft and Intel Canada who will answer your tech questions and help you choose the right tablet, notebook or All-In-One for yourself or someone special on your list.





Speaking of something special, this holiday season we’ve seen a bumper crop of new tablets from HP, ASUS, Acer and Microsoft. The HP Stream for instance is a new very reasonably priced tablet. It includes a 1 year subscription to Office 365 Personal  too, and you get nice bonus services like 1TB of OneDrive storage and 60 international Skype minutes every month. There’s never been more choice or features in such small devices for Canadians.





There are also very cool new accessories to go along with new tablets. Like the Microsoft Wireless Display Adaptor. It connects into the HDMI port on your HDTV screen and is USB powered so you don’t need a separate power source. You pair it with any Windows 8.1 or Android 4.2.1 (or later) device and instantly share your tablet or 2-in-1 desktop with your HDTV screen. Imagine the whole family watching Netflix, playing Halo Spartan Assault, or having a Skype call with the grandparents on the other side of the globe!  




We want to help you choose the right tech for everyone on your list this holiday, so please join Best Buy, Microsoft and Intel Canada for a Twitter chat.  The official hashtag will be #PerfectGiftChat. 


                            When:  December 16th 2014 at 8 PM EST

                            Where:  Twitter (so basically everywhere!)



It’s easy to register.  Just let us know in the comments section below and include your Twitter handle to get a reminder when the event is starting.  


[Editor's Note: This Twitter chat is happening on day 9 of Best Buy's 12 days of Perfect Gift Ideas Twitter event and contest. The prize for that day is a Microsoft Surface Pro 3!  Enter the contest on December 16th and join in on the Twitter Chat]
