Gift Guide for the Technology Lover


Earlier this season I shared some of my top picks for tween girls and young elementary aged boys in my 2012 Holiday Gift Guide.  Now that the kids are taken care of, it’s time to take care of you.  If you are anything like me, you love to try the latest offerings in technology from a tablet to a touch mouse.  As a Windows Champion in 2013, I am going to have the opportunity to test the Surface with Windows RT, which was at the top of my tech mom wish list!  Before you head out to buy gifts for the tech lover in your life, check out this information about the Surface along with a few other tech gift ideas.

Surface with Windows RT 

Surface with Windows RT has a widescreen HD display that provides a larger view of your TV shows and movies. It feels great in your hands and when you want to put it down, Surface’s integrated kickstand is there when you need it, and disappears and doesn’t get in the way when you don’t.  When you want to get something done, simply click in either Touch Cover—a unique and innovative pressure-sensitive keyboard that’s 3mm thin and doubles as a cover that protects your screen, and is available in a variety of colors so people can express their personal style— or Type Cover, which adds moving keys for a more traditional typing feel that’s only 2mm more.  Surface also comes with a full-size USB, enabling connectivity with literally hundreds of millions of devices, as well as a microSD card slot for adding almost limitless storage.
