Canon Pixma MX7600

The Canon Pixma MX7600 multifunction is a huge improvement over the previous model. With additional features such as an autoduplexer, increased faxing options, and an upgraded control cockpit, we have no problem recommending the MX7600.

HP Photosmart A636

The HP Photosmart A636 is an excellent at-home photo inkjet printer that's both versatile and easy to use. We highly recommend the A636 for its significant photo quality improvements over the last model and an attractive design to boot.

Logitech MX 1100 Cordless Laser Mouse

Logitech's MX 1100 wireless laser mouse is the best in its class thanks to a wide array of features that make navigation easier. You have to pay for all of that capability, but anyone who puts serious time in front of a PC will appreciate what this mouse can do.

Intel X-25M solid-state drive (80GB)

Intel's X-25M solid-state hard drive enjoys several advantages over both spinning disk drives as well as other SSDs, including improvements to data throughput, boot time, and laptop battery life. Its one drawback is that it's pricier than even its other solid-state competition, but if you can forget about its cost, this is by far the fastest data drive available.

Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave Pro

Although you don't get a price break by buying the package instead of the individual devices, we still consider this one of the best mouse and keyboard packages on the market. It combines an even better version of our favorite mouse and an equally adept keyboard at a very reasonable price.
