The TechRadar Christmas wishlist

We've been really, really good

Google Nexus 7 3G

Google Nexus 7

I love the Nexus 7 but I was disappointed when it launched with just 16GB of storage and no mobile data option. Thankfully Google and I get on like a house on fire so the search giant kindly hooked us all up with a 32GB tablet with 3G connectivity – and at £239 it's hardly like I'm asking Santa to break the bank.

Sonos Sub

Sonos Sub

OK I'll admit it: I like my beats fast and my bass down low, and nothing gets them lower while looking this stylish than the Sonos Sub. Add into the equation that I can control my foundation-shaking Spotify playlist and Sonos setup from my phone and it's a match made in D&B heaven – although with prices starting at £499 for the Sub alone, I may struggle when asking my nearest and dearest to treat me this Christmas.

Alienware M17x


My aging PC is on its last legs and I need something new to feed my more hardcore gaming side while not taking up half of my living room. The Alienware M17x may not be the cheapest option out there to begin with but once I've bumped up the storage, processor and RAM we're probably looking around the £2500, but I'm a sucker for backlit illuminations and the M17x fits the bill nicely. Plus I've been really good this year.

Sennheiser MM500-X

MM500 X

If you do a lot of travelling you'll know how important a good set of headphones are and the Sennheiser MM500-X is one of the best on the market. With superb noise cancelling, excellent audio quality, Bluetooth connectivity and a comfortable fit, I fell in love with the MM500-Xs during a brief testing period and now yearn after a set of my own.

GTA Vice City on iOS/Android

Vice City

It's one of my most loved games of all time, GTA Vice City had the cars, the soundtrack and the plot which kept me entertained for hours on end and it's now making an appearance on the small screen. Landing on both iOS and Android I can't wait to load up this blast from the past on my iPad 4 and HTC One X to celebrate the game's 10 year anniversary in the only way I know how – a tank rampage through the streets.
