What gadgets would be great to buy? Here are five suggestions.
Bose QuietComfort 25 – S$529
One of the best in the business of portable, noise-cancelling headphones, Bose has won over many frequent flyers who want to enjoy some high-quality music on their long flights. The latest QuietComfort 25 comes with the same noise reduction and lightweight fit that have made the series so popular. A great buy if you travel often.
Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro (orange) – S$2,299
The new Yoga 3 Pro has an interesting hinge that lets you easily and safely flip the screen all the way around, turning a traditional laptop into a classy tablet with a touch screen. Now souped up with a handy Intel Core M chip plus a very sharp 13.3-inch screen, this light 1.19kg machine is a great partner for folks who are always on the go.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge (white) – S$1,248
Samsung’s interesting take on the smartphone needs no introduction, since its arrival heralded the first “edge” screen. The addition screen real estate gives you a preview of items, such as news articles, so you don’t have to unlock and fire up the entire screen. Plus, even without the edge, the Galaxy Note Edge is a great Android smartphone with an impressive camera and sharp display.
Sony RX100 Mark III – S$1,199
If you want a compact camera and still take great pictures on holiday, you can’t go wrong with the Sony RX100 Mark III. Considered by many to be the best camera in its class, this is one shooter that lets you take stunning images rivalling much more expensive cameras. Featured-packed with a 20-megapixel sensor and Zeiss optics, the RX100 Mark III is also easy to use for anyone from expert to beginner.
HP Officejet 4630 e-All-in-One – S$159
Affordable and user-friendly, HP’s Officejet 4630 will fit right into any home. Like typical all-in-one machines, it lets you conveniently print, copy, scan and even fax documents. As a colour printer, it will also print out the occasional holiday photo without fuss. It’s also easy to use with a 2-inch touch screen and connects to Wi-Fi networks to do away with messy cables.
