Top 4 Electronic Gifts for the Holidays


Hanging Christmas GiftsWith the holiday season upon us, it’s only natural to expect that a significant number of gifts will include technology, whether it’s the latest Apple product or a new gaming console, such as the Nintendo Switch. Here are the top four electronic devices of the year that you might receive as a gift this year!

iPad Pro

iPad ProIn October 2018, Apple launched the brand-new iPad Pro, which shows a revamped design with thinner and slimmer display Liquid Retina option (basically fancier words for a rounded LCD!). Following the recent iPhones, the iPad Pro uses Face ID. What stands out, however, is that it doesn’t have a notch, which is something that hasn’t been seen on any other Apple device. This is, by far, the most anticipated Apple product this year. Key features include four speakers, five microphones, Bluetooth 5.0, as well as being compatible with the Apple Pencil.

The iPad Pro is perfect for those who want to see the latest season of Game of Thrones on Philo TV in the most vibrant way possible.

Bose Soundbar 700Bose Soundbar 700

This sound bar from Bose features an unmatched combination of exceptional sound and sophisticated design. With Alexa built in, it’s easy for users to just ask to play music, get answers to questions, and connect bluetooth devices. This was announced last September 2018, and still continues to be one of the top selling speakers this year!

If you love listening to music at the best quality, the Bose Soundbar 700 is the best fit.  

Macbook AirMacbook Air (2018)

Also announced in October 2018 was the entirely new design for the Macbook Air. It features a retina display with slimmer bezels, 48% more color than the previous models, and a 2560×1600 native resolution. Like the newer Macbook Pro, the 2018 Macbook Air also includes the Touch ID fingerprint scanner, always-on audio processor for Siri support, and a Force Touch trackpad.

To make it even more appealing, Fordham offers Free Microsoft Office to its community!

Nintendo SwitchNintendo Switch

Despite the Switch being released well over a year ago, sales are expected to increase. New game releases such as Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee!, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe have piqued players’ interests, and many can’t wait until more games are announced.

If you need a break between homework assignments, or just want something to pass the time on a snowy day, the Nintendo Switch is there!
