Tech Minute: Gadgets for the graduate
A great gift for graduates of any ages: a tablet or e-reader.
These days, they come in all sizes and price points, but CNET editors recommend either the iPad for the most functionality or the Nexus 7 for its petite size and reasonable $200 price tag.
For standalone e-readers, you can't beat the Kindle Paperwhite.
The built-in light is great for late-night study sessions or long commutes.
Whether your graduate is moving onto a college dorm room or first apartment, size
will most likely be limited.
That's why CNET editors suggest the compact Roku 3 for a space-saving home entertainment system.
Graduates will enjoy streaming media for more than 750 channels and you'll love its teeny price tag of $99.
Finally, it's not cheap, but the Apple MacBook Air will sure to please any recent graduate.
Clocking in at nearly $1200, the Air boasts extreme portability due to its lightweight design, an improved webcam, and a decent battery life.
