SAMSUNG 55-Inch Class Neo QLED 4K QN95B

TVs always make a great family Christmas gift as they offer something for everyone. This year Samsung has upped the ante with its new Neo series which supports gaming through Xbox Cloud Gaming and GeForce Now. By this I mean without the need for a console and in 4K. If you have a console or a PC, it will also act as a high performance monitor supporting up to 144hz refresh rates.

The TV is premium in every respect with the only drawback being the price. I like the 55 inch version which is generally available for $2,098. See YouTube overview.

Gaming Chromebook

A gaming Chromebook is a great laptop even if you're not into gaming and the Acer 516 GE is a good choice.

  • Intel® Core™ i5-1240P processor Dodeca-core 1.70 GHz
  • Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics shared memory
  • 16" WQXGA (2560 x 1600) 16:10 120 Hz
  • 8 GB, LPDDR4X
  • 256 GB SSD

This includes 3 Free Months of NVIDIA GeForce NOW and access to Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta). This Chromebook is generally available for $549. See YouTube overview.

Pixel Watch

A smart watch is a great gift. The new Pixel watch brings the power and convenience of Google apps to your wrist. Available in a variety of styles, and customizable watch faces, this gift will not disappoint. It is generally available for $350 depending on the selected options. See YouTube overview.

Pixel Buds Pro

Another can’t go wrong gift idea. Pixel Buds Pro checks every box and is generally available for $200. See YouTube review.

Ugreen hub

Ugreen offers a variety of hubs and connectors and the 6-In-1 USB-C hub is a good choice. It offers 4K video support at 60Hz and USB C charging. Generally available at $37.
