What would be on your Christmas wish list if there was a load of cash burning a hole?

Written by Corey Grimes on 16 December 2016
Here are some gift ideas based for those on a not so tight budget.

1. MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and Touch ID (£1,750)

The new MacBook Pro boasts a whole new level of performance and portability. The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable.

2. Dell XPS 15 (£1,558)

The world’s smallest 15.6" laptop packs powerful performance and a stunning Infinity Edge display. The Ultra Sharp™ 4K Ultra HD touch display is amazing.

3. Microsoft Surface Book (£1,299)

Incredibly powerful and meticulously crafted, the Surface Book is a revolution in laptop design. The detachable display offers an outstanding high resolution. With the full power of a high-performance laptop and the versatility of a tablet, Surface Book gives you everything you need to work with.

4. Dell Inspiron 5000 2-in-1 (£619)

15" 2-in-1 stylishly designed with four flexible modes, an expansive screen, and your choice of features, like a backlit keyboard and a solid-state drive. With an innovative 360-degree hinge, the Inspiron 5000 series 2-in-1 allows you to switch between four different modes.

5. iPad Pro (£549)

It puts incredible power that leaps past most portable PCs at your fingertips. It makes even complex work as natural as touching, swiping, or writing with a pencil. And whether you choose the 12.9‑inch model or the new 9.7‑inch model, iPad Pro is more capable, versatile and portable than anything that’s come before it.

6. Racing Drone (£400)

It’s not all work related stuff on our wish list. How about a racing drone? This small quadcopter drone is purpose-built to compete in FPV (first person view) racing and other drone racing events held in most major cities around the world. They’re fast.

7. Apple TV 4th Generation (£149)

With Apple TV, apps have liberated television, letting you choose precisely what and when you want to watch. Built on a powerful platform called tvOS, Apple TV lets you interact with your TV in completely new ways. Ask Siri to find just the film or TV programme you’re in the mood for.

8. Samsung T3 Portable SSD, 250GB (£120)

This portable solid state drive uses the latest in storage technologies. Allowing you to store your information in super quick time and be accessed on the move.

9. Samsung VR headset (£99)

This is a virtual reality head set which holds a Samsung phone within the front compartment. This allows you to focus on what is in front of you. It has a home, back and touchpad button. As well as this, a cable charger built into it for your phone.

10. Noman Key for iPhone (£20)

How about a portable lightning cable charger for the iPhone 5, 6 and 7? It can fit onto your key ring and plugs into a regular USB port.
