Christmas gift ideas for tech savvy consumers
Christmas is just around the corner and with this in mind a number of shoppers are busying themselves trying to think of the perfect present.
But gift-giving can be trickier than it seems and with modern technology moving at a rapid pace it can be hard to keep up with the latest must-have gadgets.
And while the thought of buying technology pieces can be somewhat of a turn-off for many consumers, it is also a great long-term investment.
Acer's Aspire S3 Ultrabook, a petite sized notebook with a five-hour battery life and employer of Intel's rapid start technology, is powered by the new category of Windows-powered laptops i.e. it’s the first of its kind.
The S3 Ultrabook is slightly more affordable and is more about getting the job done, but what it lacks in design features it makes up for in power.
It has 4 GB of on-board memory and a spinning hard drive with an SSD that cuts processing time and boosts memory.
Apple MacBook Air (Thunderbolt) is the number one competitor for the S3 and its emphasis on design is sure to make mac users happy.
Featuring a new LED backlit island-style, unibody aluminium construction and a slim, compact frame, it is a design feat.
Leveno's latest laptop, the ThinkPad X1 can be configured with Intel's Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, it also integrates with their 3,000 HD graphics and Dolby speakers.
But it may be on the bulkier side, which means that its most impressive features are those that can be used for entertainment purposes.
But if laptops are not on your list then it may also be a good idea to consider quirky gadgets such as the Jawbone Jambox, GRID-IT Organiser, AEO Earbud Earmuffs or a customised cover for your iPad or Kindle in the form of a MyEdge Customisable Cover.
