VR-Zone Christmas Buying Guide 2010
Memory prices are at an all time low: this doesn’t mean that the Christmas shopping geek accepts anything less than performance memory. We have some nice recommendations that’d you’d be slottin’ in the stockin’!
Take the Transcend 4GB KIT aXeRamDDR3 2000+ U-DIMM CL9 (TX2000KLU-4GK) if you’re looking for a dual-channel Intel memory kit. Transcend’s online store lists these at US$105.
The US$149 Kingston HyperX T1 (KHX2000C9AD3T1K3/6GX) 6GB triple-channel kit is what you want for those LGA1366 processors!
For your AMD friends who are used to lower CAS Latency, the GeIL PC3-16000 2000MHz C9 ULTRA DUAL CHANNEL (GU34GB2000C9DC) makes the perfect upgrade!
Samsung Galaxy Tab
If you want an Apple iPad alternative, the next best thing would probably be the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Running on Android 2.2 (Froyo), the stylish 7-inch tablet device is great for watching videos, surfing the web, checking emails and even reading ebooks. What’s more, it offers Android Market which lets you access over thousands of apps for download. We at VR-Zone like it so much that we gave the Galaxy Tab the Editor’s Choice.
