Tech Culture: Gifts under $1,000

1:06 /

There are lots of bargains to be had, even when you are spending big bucks. Molly Wood shows off three to consider.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Now I know tech gifts aren't the cheapest things on the list, but there are some deals out there and you can find some great tech gifts for well under a thousand dollars. First off, we recommend the Nikon D80 Digital SLR Camera. There are newer versions out there, but that means this one is on sale. You can get it with the lens for about $800 and this is a lot of camera for the money. Great images, fast shooting, tons of features. You can also find a laptop with plenty of power for under a thousand. We like the HP Pavilion dv4-1125nr, which is more like 800 bucks. And you will not find more features and power and sexiness in an $800 laptop than you will in this guy right here. And everyone's going high-def this year. We have a great choice for an HD camcorder. The Canon Vixia HF-10 takes great video. It's really nice and small and it's just about $700 if you shop around online. Plus, it records to flash memory, so no need to spend extra money on tapes. There are still some tech bargains out there. For CNET.com, I'm Molly Wood. ^M00:01:02 [ Music ]
