New gadgets are constantly being released and, with Christmas just around the corner, you might already be in the market for the latest technology-inspired gift for your loved ones.
Whilst there are plenty of options open you, affording these gifts is another matter entirely. Thankfully, sites such as Music Magpie allow you to sell macbook pro and other unwanted devices, as well as CDs and DVDs, quickly and easily. This can give you almost instant access to the funds needed to finance your gift purchases – but just what gadgets should you consider buying your friends and family with this money?
An obvious choice, the iPhone is considered the pinnacle of mobile technology. There are a range of models available with the iPhone5 the latest option. As the newest piece of Apple kit, this model comes with a hefty price-tag, making trading in your old gadgets or opting for the slightly cheaper iPhone4S a wise decision for the money conscious.
Coming out later this year, the Wii U is the latest Nintendo console and the first in the next generation of games players. As a new console, this is likely to be an expensive purchase – but one which is sure to put smiles on faces come winter.
To help manage the cost, sell old consoles and their games and use this money to finance your new purchase. After all, with a Nintendo Wii U in the house who is going to want to play games on an old PlayStation?
As the technology brand of the 21st Century, Apple products are always a popular choice for Christmas. Macs make great gifts, especially for students, and the Macbook Air is kicking off the recent trend in notebooks. If you want something ultra thin, stylish and user-friendly, Macs are certainly the way to go.
Of course, they can also be a little expensive. Luckily, like all items on this list you can trade them in to sites like Music Magpie and get money for mac.
One of the latest gadget trends, the tablet computer has been increasing in popularity ever since models such as the iPad first hit our shelves. Small enough to be mobile yet large enough to perform various functions and uses, the tablet has many advantages.
Whether for work, internet browsing or gaming, anyone will appreciate a tablet this Christmas and, with a vast range of accessories for these gadgets also available, you’ll have plenty of stocking-filler ideas too.
Another increasing trend, many people are making the transition from standard TVs to Smart TVs. These sets offer internet interconnectivity options which allow live streaming of shows and expand the type of content you are able to view, creating a smart and dynamic television experience.
If you know someone who still uses a traditional set, then a Smart TV could be the perfect gift. Make sure you consider HD compatibility and 3D capabilities of your chosen set carefully, looking for items which offer the best technology at the fairest price.
