Its two bright screens can be adjusted to four levels to adapt to different lighting conditions and to extend battery power. This is portable fun! Be sure to get the games: Mario Kart, Bomberman Land Touch! and Worms 2 Open Warfare. All these games are a blast at multiplayer!

Trust me, your geek will love this!
Samsung SyncMaster 305T
Samsung SyncMaster 305T. First there was the Apple Cinema HD display. Then the Dell 3007WFPM came along. Now Samsung has entered the 30-inch desktop LCD arena with the SyncMaster 305T ($1,999.99 list), a stunning, high-resolution widescreen display that imaging professionals and gamers with deep pockets are sure to love. It may not be cheap, but she’s the best on the market. If you got the funds, pick a couple of these bad boys up!
Canon PowerShot SD1000
Canon PowerShot SD1000. What kind of point-and-shoot camera has what it takes to stand out from the pack? Generally, it’s one that exhibits both excellent quality and nimble performance. But that’s not the whole story. Other features, such as a useful and beautiful design plus functions that are enjoyable to use, can really make the difference. In the case of Canon’s new 7.1-megapixel PowerShot SD1000, you get most, if not all, of these essentials. Best point-and-shoot camera on the market!
Panasonic’s TH-50PZ700U Plasma HD TV
Panasonic’s TH-50PZ700U Plasma HD TV. Consumer Reports calls it “the best flat screen ever tested.” Panasonic’s 50-inch TH-50PZ700U plasma was actually the recipient of such sensational praise, and such luxuries as the 1080p resolution and its ability to “reproduce the finest details, rich vibrant colors and deep blacks” apparently set it way ahead of the pack. Additionally, the screen was so impressive that reviewers actually stated that it “lent an almost three-dimensional look to images.” Ho ho ho…
