Ho Ho Ho! Christmas is here. I absolutely love this festive season for ONE reason, among others, – presents. This is the one time of the year where you can indulge in a mindless shopping spree, without worrying too much about the budget (that part comes later).
But sadly it also means crowded streets which I’m strictly allergic to. To that end, I prefer to take things online. If you’re anything like me, read on. This guide is for you.
As much as I’m obliged to endorse Windows products as a part of my night job, it stands with reason that Windows 8 would be a great gift for PC enthusiasts. At a $50 price point, now would be the best time to upgrade, if you are planning to switch anytime. Free access to the Media Center upgrade till Jan 13′ should just seal the deal.
If you’re looking to buy a new tablet, well, don’t. Think of a hybrid instead. Hybrids are all the rage today. They bring together the two worlds of a tablet and a laptop together in one piece. Steal your neighbor’s thunder this Christmas with the stylish HP Envy x2.
Nothing speaks off your love like a well crafted phone. Okay, I made that up. But still Lumia 920 is one of the prettiest phone I’ve ever seen and it’s powerful too. With a 1.5 Ghz Qualcomm dual core processor and a solid 8MP camera, it makes a pretty good gift for your family.
Okay, that’s a terrible name for a phone, but it’s a amazing device that runs Windows 8. Gift this to your special someone. You won’t regret it.
If you’re looking to give a facelift to your living room, start with your TV. Bring the joy of Christmas to your home with the Samsung smart TV. It comes with an in built camera for video conferencing, motion control, and voice recognition. You can control almost everything with simple hand gestures. Will it serve cold Ginger ale? So sorry.
This is 2012 and every house should have a Blu-ray device. But if you know someone who is still scratching VCR’s, please gift them one and redeem their souls.
These long holidays are ideal for a movie marathon with friends and family. And when it comes to that, what could treat you better than the epic Dark Knight trilogy.
