This holiday season is different from many that we have seen in the past. The main reason for that is because the economy is horrible right now. Most people are spending less than they ever have before on holiday gifts this year. Things are so bad that most stores do not even have those amazing deals that we are used to seeing this time of year. If you look at Black Friday’s deals none were really earth-shattering. So with that said here are some things you can get for that computer enthusiast or yourself on the cheap.
Portable storage is always something that is always important to a lot of people. They need something that can be carried around with them and does not use an external power source. This only leaves them with 2 options, a flash drive or a portable hard drive.

Today we are taking a look at the 320GB Seagate FreeAgent Go Portable Hard Drive. We will see if it is the perfect companion for traveling.
Like most of you I own a laptop and I use it a lot. Although sometimes it is hard to do work while I’m lying in bed or relaxing on the couch.

Today we will be looking at the Foldable Multi Notebook Stand from USB Fever. We will see if this notebook stand is worth picking up at its $49.99 price tag.
Removable storage keeps on getting larger and larger, especially with consumer products being able to record HD quality video and take pictures at 12 megapixel resolution.

Today we will be looking at a SDHC (Secure Digital High-Capacity) card from Kingston. SDHC cards currently range from 4GB to 32GB; we received the 32GB version of the card. 32GB is sure a lot of space for videos and photos, let’s see what we can do with this card!
