Men’s Lifestyle: Gadgets In The Christmas Sales 2012

Lifestyle, Tech Blog

I think that the sales in terms of men’s fashion has been pretty poor so far, but I have found some great gadgets, boys toys and electronic must have items for a man who wants to spend some money on some cool gear. Here are 4 of the greatest things I have found:

Acer Aspire S3-391 Ultrabook

This laptop is of the ultrabook variety which is to rival the likes of the Apple Macbook Air. I think that this is great, and is only £599 at John Lewis. There are a few different models of this machine, so if you are comparing, make sure you compare the exact model. I have found this elsewhere for over £900 so the pricetag of only £599 is rather good.

It packs a 128GB SSD drive, Intel i7 CPU @ 1.9ghz and 4gb of RAM, in an aluminium body with a 13.3″ screen. If you want a stylish and powerful laptop, this would have to be consdiered.

Western Digital 1TB My Passport Portable Hard Drive

I actually bought one of these a few months back, and may have to get another. Backing up your data is so important, and one of these 1TB drives should be more than capable of doing that. They are on sale at Amazon right now for £63.95 reduced from £129.99.

Canon EOS 600D DSLR Camera

Yes my very own camera! I have one of these, and I think I paid around £550-600 when I got it earlier this year. Since then a new model has come out, and it’s got progressively cheaper, and all cameras do when they’re old. It’s now at around £420, with £40 cashback from Canon, meaning you can pick this up for under £400 at Amazon which is an amazing deal.

If you want to spend a little less, the 1100D is now around £280 which is also a decent camera.

Creative ZiiSound D5 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

I have been looking at sound docks and speakers for a while now, and recently came across this. It looks fairly decent in terms of design, certainly not ugly but not as breathtaking as a Beolit 12 from Bang and Olufsen, but also does not come with that pricetag either. It’s now on sale from £279.99 down to £149.99 at Amazon which seems like a great deal. It has many great reviews, and works well wirelessly via Bluetooth as well as featuring an AUX port for ultimate compatibility. It is an older product, but just because it’s not a new kid on the block don’t let that fool you into not buying this almost half price sound dock.
