The New Year's List

Published:Monday | December 29, 2014 | 12:00 AM

Well, Christmas came, plundered, and conquered our wallets. At the end of it all, did you get a gift that you really wanted? Well, as usual, I got nothing of significance. So this year, I have an all-new approach to the whole gift-buying idea. Buy your own gift this New Year's Eve ... . Yes, you heard me. You spent the whole year working hard, and you deserve to treat yourself to something that will lift your spirits for the new year. Let's face the fact that we aren't young toddlers or spunky, young teens anymore. Start 2015 with a gift that you deserve.

1. Laptops

The first item that can be on your list is a laptop. Yes, I know that laptops are a bit on the expensive side, but a laptop is one of those presents which would be a lifelong contribution that really means something. If you are considering getting a laptop, I would recommend getting the new HP 15T-R000 that comes stacked with Intel Processor (Quad Core), Windows 8, 4GB of RAM and a price tag way below $60,000.

2. Digital Cameras

Another item that can be on that shopping list of yours this year is a digital camera to help you save those extraordinary moments of the holiday seasons to come. Out of the many digital cameras available out there, I highly recommend purchase the Olympus PEN E-PL3 digital camera. This digital camera is well rounded to suite even the hardest critic. This high-tech digital imaging piece of gear gives you only the best quality pictures or videos anytime of the day or night.

3. Computer Accessories

OK, computers and tablets are common
household items that can be found in almost all homes across Jamaica.
Now, there are so many accessories that can be bought to improve the
performance of a PC (personal computer). One such accessory that you can
buy and never go wrong is an external hard drive, because you can never
have enough storage space. Better than that, what if I told you you
could get wireless external hard drives now? One such wireless external
hard drive that I can recommend is the Seagate Wireless Plus 1TB hard
drive which I found for a reasonable price.

Final Thoughts

Well, there you have it, that is the cheer-up-yourself list for the new year. Also, there is nothing on the list that's over $60,000. I hope I've helped you folks out there to realise that only you can make yourself truly happy. To all my readers out there, take it easy and have a happy new year.

Items mentioned above can be purchased at Royale Computer and Accessories.
