$100 and Under
Lian Li PC-7A Aluminum PC Case
Lian Li has to be one of my favorite case manufacturers. Their cases really set the bar for sleek and stylish, but also they have so many features that you just don’t see with other cases. Also did I mention they are made completely of aluminum! That means your system is going to be extremely light. The PC-7A is a mid tower case that can hold 4 optical drives and 3 hard drives. Any computer enthusiast will definitely enjoy this gift.
Western Digital My Book Essential 750GB External Hard Drive
I love external storage, it is such a good thing to have since you can easily take it with you anywhere. I am currently running 3 external hard drives right now and I might add a 4th to the mix. Western Digital is known for making good external drives, I haven’t heard anything bad about the My Book series of drives. And this is a 750GB drive…for under $100!
Kingston HyperX 2GB DDR3 1375 Dual Channel Memory Kit
Another thing that has really come down in price this year is computer memory. People are slowly making the switch over to DDR3 memory and this is the perfect stocking stuffer for them. We reviewed this modules back in February and they are they perform well and overclock beyond their advertised speeds. This would be a great starter kit for someone who wants to make the switch over to DDR3.
Logitech diNovo Slim Keyboard
I have always liked the diNovo series of keyboard from Logitech. I love the style of the keys and the slim look is really cool. I myself use a diNovo Edge keyboard. For those looking for pretty much the same keyboard, but without the “touch” features and touch mouse area then the diNovo slim is perfect for you, and you can get it for under $100!
Good Luck Shopping
As most of you I will be cutting down on my spending this year as well. Luckily there are some good deal going around that will allow me to still get my friends and family things that they want and need. All of the products that I have listed here are things that I wouldn’t mind getting. I don’t consider anything on this list to be junk even the things on the $25 and under list. Good luck to everyone shopping this year!
