To paraphrase Ferris Bueller, tech moves pretty fast – and if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss the chance to own a drone with a 12 megapixel camera which starts hovering when it recognizes your face.
LAPTOP- There’s never been so much choice when it comes to buying a laptop, which is great news for us – but it also means that there are more machines to sift through before you find your perfect portable. Even if you’re a tech enthusiast, that still means a time-consuming search as you sort through dozens of potential purchases.
CAMERA- Despite steadily declining camera sales, photography is more popular than ever. How’s that possible you cry?

SMARTWATCH- Smartwatches are a great way to receive notifications from your phone and track your health right from your wrist. There’s an interesting theory that smartwatches are to the smartphone what wristwatches were to the pocket watch. Picture the way the average gentlemen used to have to rummage through his pocket for his watch prior to the 20th century.
HEADPHONES- No good smartphone is complete without an awesome pair of headphones and the choice and variety is larger than ever. Don’t just go for the first ‘phones you see on the shelves, though, if you know where to look you can find classic, affordable in-ears that are worth your time.

SPEAKERS- Speakers are a useful invention, allowing your music to travel with you – whether that’s from front room to kitchen, kitchen to garden, or garden to holiday villa pool. The best on the market are handsome, sturdy, and – hallelujah! – capable of blasting out serious sound. That’s a relief because the sound from portable speakers of yore was dodgy at best.
HARD DRIVES- Taking storage with you may be less necessary than it once was, but there’s still plenty of use cases where it’s needed. There are various options out there including traditional hard disk as well as solid-state drives.
HOME THEATER- Modern televisions have one priority and that’s to produce the best picture. If there was a second priority, it would be style, with a focus on making slim units. So, if you want high-end audio to match your picture, buying the best soundbar your budget can allow is recommended.
MONITORS- If you own a gaming PC or even just use a screen on a daily basis, you might overlook your most-used peripheral, the monitor. A good monitor can make a big difference in your daily tasks – from competitive gaming to watching a movie to simply multitasking for work.
PEN DRIVES- There’s an argument that USB memory sticks and flash drives are the biggest bargains in storage today. The little blighters are just so useful. While it’s more convenient to move data from one PC to another using the cloud, it’s not much fun doing it with 8GB or more of video files and photos.
CAMERA ACCESSORIES- Photographers would be lost without the raft of camera accessories that support their photo shoots. From the bags used to carry their kit and the tripods that permit long exposures right down to the smaller essentials the keep dust away from sensors and lenses, photographers always have a handful of accessories that they couldn’t be without.
TABLETS- Don’t count the traditional tablet out just yet; it’s still useful for working, doodling and Netflixing. Android slates, in particular, come in all shapes and sizes, and devices with similar specs can feel totally different in day-to-day use.
