DL Christmas Gift Guide: Gift ideas for bargain hunters Cooler Master CM Storm Octane mouse and keyboard combo

Cooler Master CM Storm Octane mouse and keyboard combo

$89

The CM Storm Octane mouse and keyboard combo proves that you can buy good gear on a tight budget.

The keyboard comes with features such as seven different colours for its backlight and the ability to press up to 19 keys simultaneously. The latter is great for gaming, when you would need to cast spells in quick succession.

The mouse is no slouch either, with durable switches rated to last 10 million clicks and a sensor adjustable up to a speedy 3,500 dots per inch.


HP Stream 13 laptop

$349

Despite its rock-bottom price, HP's newest ultraportable laptop is not lacking too much on specs. It comes with a quad-core Intel Celeron processor, Microsoft Office 365 Personal software and Windows' latest 8.1 operating system.

Although it comes with only 32GB of flash storage, that can be easily fixed by plugging in an SD card or an external hard drive to its many ports. It also comes with 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage for a year.

The Stream is good for both work and play, with a 13.3-inch high-definition display and DTS studio sound that should help make your movies and music come to life.

All of these features make this laptop, which is priced less than most tablets, a steal.

 

Audio-Technica ATH-Sport2 earphones

$48

The Audio Technica's ATH-Sport2 earphones is one of the best values of its genre.

It features an IPX5 waterproof rating, letting you wash off perspiration after a run or bike ride. The included clip and specially designed cords prevent the cables from tangling.


Nokia Lumia 535 Dual Sim smartphone

$199

You might mistake Nokia's latest Lumia phone for a high-end one, given that it comes with such premium features as a five-inch LCD display, 5-megapixel front camera and dual SIM card capability.

The battery life does not disappoint as well, promising up to 13 hours of talktime and 78 hours of music playback.

All that for just $199 without a contract.
