As we look back on this past year, and wonder why each year seems shorter than the last, we also reflect on our many traditions here at HotHardware. One of our favorites is our annual Holiday Buyer’s Guide. Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for that special geek in your life, or if you’re dreaming of putting together a new system for yourself, we hope this guide will help you make some informed buying decisions.

Lenovo IdeaPad U150 in Holiday Red
This year, we’ll cover the various components that you’ll need to build a few different types of systems, along with notebooks and netbooks for those who are looking for greater portability. In each category, we’ll cover high-end, mid-range, and budget models, so that you can easily find the parts you want at a price you can afford (or can attempt to afford). But of course, there’s no reason you can’t mix and match.
We're also tossing in suggestions in the cellphone and camera category (hey, some friends already have new rigs!), and we'll be closing things out by selecting a few nice pre-built PCs for those who are down to the wire and have no time to actually piece a machine together. We hope you find our suggestions useful and that you have a little fun putting together your wish-list! Happy shopping & Happy Holidays!
