Welcome to BuyDig’s Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide: For Techies. The year 2015 saw a lot of new and exciting tech breach the consumer market—from the latest and greatest in mobile computing to powerful drones whizzing through the air, we’ve compiled a quick list of great gift ideas to help you with your holiday shopping.
Drones are all the rage these days, and what better way is there to show the techie in your life some love, than by giving them an introduction to the latest technology trend to sweep the skies? With so many models on the market—you’d be forgiven for tossing your hands up in the air in defeat at the prospect of gifting someone their first drone. Fortunately, the BuyDig team has already investigated the matter for you—reviews across the board have found the DJI Phantom 3 to be a top pick among first time drone owners and veterans alike for its versatility, reliability and ease of flight. With 2.7K HD video, 12MP photos and the ability to see the world through your drone’s eyes on your mobile device, this gift is sure to please any tech lover.
Is the techie in your life already the proud owner of a drone? The holidays may be the perfect time to give them an upgrade—the DJI Inspire 1 Quadcopter. Released earlier this year, the Inspire 1 represents the culmination of DJI’s drone technology, providing everything you need to take stunning 4K aerial video footage right outside of the box. It sports the same ease of flight and real-time mobile streaming capabilities of the DJI Phantom 3, but adds the ability to upgrade the camera and allow two operators to control the camera and the drone independently—a huge plus if you want to make professional aerial cinematic videos. As an added bonus, the new design dramatically reduces the issue where the propellers fall within the camera’s line of sight, and allows you to rotate the gimbal without seeing the arms of the drone.
You have to hand it to Garmin, they know how to make navigation systems—and if you know someone who could use an upgrade from the smartphone in the lap approach to GPS, look no further than Garmin’s latest navigation system, the nuviCam. Featuring a 6.0 inch premium display, built-in dashcam, voice activated controls and a suite of driver awareness features like lane departure and collision warnings, the nuviCam won’t just get your loved one to their destination, it will help keep them safe on the road.
Is the techie in your life a fan of Steve Jobs? Give the gift of Apple this holiday season with the MacBook Pro. The perfect companion to anyone’s Apple ecosystem of electronics, this particular model packs over 5 million pixels into its stunning 15 inch retina display for a dazzling 2880 by 1800 resolution. The MacBook Pro is powered by an Intel Core i7 quad core processor, and features 16 GB or ram, so they will have no trouble running demanding software like Adobe Photoshop or InDesign. If your loved one is a photographer, a graphic designer or artist they will appreciate the stunning quality of Apple’s patented retina display technology.
Having trouble deciding between a tablet or a laptop? Why not get the technology lover in your life the best of both worlds, with the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga? This 2-in-1 notebook is essentially a touch screen tablet with a keyboard that can cycle between 4 modes: laptop, stand, tablet and tent. Its 12.5 inch screen features a 10 point multitouch display that is quick and responsive. As an added bonus, the ThinkPad Yoga sports a lengthy 8 hour battery life and 30 day standby time. Your favorite techie is sure to fall in love with this versatile mobile computer.
