Best Laptop: HP Pavilion 15.6-Inch Laptop

adults electronics Laptop2HP Pavilion 15.6-Inch Laptop (6th Gen Skylake, Intel Core i5-6200U Processor, 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Windows 10)

This HP Pavilion series laptop is a laptops with good specs for a decent price. The specs: 15.6-Inch screen, latest 6th Gen Skylake, Intel Core i5-6200U Processor 3M Cache, up to 2.80 GHz 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Windows 10, 15.6-inch Full HD WLED-backlit IPS Display (1920×1080), HDMI, B&O PLAY with 2 speakers. For a price around $535 at the time of writing a 15.6 inch 6th gen Intel i5 laptop with these specs (especially FULL HD) is a very very good deal!

Asus 15.6-Inch Laptop (2.1 GHz Core i3-5010U,4 GB RAM,500 GB)

This Asus 15.6 inch laptop is one of the most popular laptop this Christmas. This is very logical because the specs are very good when looking at the price: around $350 at the time of writing. For that price you get: the Intel i3-5010U 2.1 GHz processor, 4 Gb RAM and a 15.6 inch FULL HD screen. A very good laptop for everyday use at home, for a student or as a laptop for your work. It does not have the extreme quality of the Apple MacBooks but has a lot to offer for about 1/5 the of the price :) that is why I put this laptop on the #2 place in the ranking.

Gadget Gifts For Adults: Drones

Best Budget Drones Under $100

My recommendations for small budget drones as gift under $100 are the the Hubsan 4 Channel Quadcopter, the UDI 6 Axis Gyro Quadcopter and the Dromida Omnius Quadcopter. For a price under $100 you can expect a small drone which is easy to fly but doesn’t have the power/features/maneuverability that the more expensive drones have. Of the three drones shown below only the UDI Quadcopter has a HD camera for photo and video but this also means the price is higher than the two without a camera. All three are very good affordable drones to start with, to learn how to fly a drone or just to try out drone flying for fun. Never let kids fly a drone without supervision and first check out the regulations for drone flying in your area.

Tech Gifts 2019 For Adults: Weather Stations

A weather station makes a great Christmas gift!

Best Weather Staions Under $100

The best weather station I could find under $100 is the AcuRite 00622 Pro Color Weather Station with Wind Speed, Temperature and Humidity.

Includes: 3-in-1 wireless weather sensor accurately measures the temperature, humidity and wind speed, color display with adjustable dimmer; electric-powered with optional battery backup, history chart displaying temperature, wind speed and barometric pressure trends over last 12 hours and many more for around $100

Best Weather Stations around $150

For the best weather station around $150 range I recommend the Oregon Scientific WMR86 Backyard Pro Wireless Weather Station WMR86. Some of the specs include: weather forecast (sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, rainy, snowy), display of Indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, wind speed and direction, barometric reading with bar graph, rainfall reading with bar graph.

It has a integrated wind sensor tower for easy set up and atomic time, so you always have the exact time and never have to adjust for Daylight Saving Time. It also shows the moon phase.

An other very good option for around $170 (at the time of writing) is the AcuRite Pro Wireless color weather station. It has a beautiful color display and integrated rain, wind, temp and humidity meter. This wireless weather station streams real-time data including the moon phase, indoor comfort level, “feels like”” temperature and more. Highly recommended especially when looking at the low price for this much quality!

On this site I give you my recommendations for the best small Christmas drones/quad-copters around $100. These are small budget drones with the specs you can expect for the money. Only one of the recommendations in this group has a camera. After that we present the Best Drone For Beginners. This drone has a stable 6 axis gyro, is very affordable and makes a great Christmas gift for a first time drone pilot.

The best recreational drone we have selected has more features like a real time live video preview. You see what the camera sees on the screen of your controller! 

After that we present the best drone for video/photo. For this drone the camera and stability are the most important. For this much quality the price is of course higher than the recreational drones.

The last drone on this site is the best professional drone with all the features you can imagine in a drone like a 4K camera etc. The stability and quality of the camera on this drone are so good that flying this drone is restricted within 15 miles radius of the White House.
