1. Ignoring the price-to-performance ratio
Around this time of year, everyone rolls out gift guides—suggestions for what to buy for the special, computer-loving people in your life. But we think that such guides sorely underserve one crucial but oft-ignored demographic: the filthy, stinking rich. To remedy this pattern of neglect, we’ve put together the ultimate gift guide for recipients for whom the word “budget” holds no meaning: Here are 10 pieces of PC paraphernalia with price tags that push the boundaries of rational expense. We’re not talking about cheesy solid-gold mice and diamond-encrusted cell phone cases that nobody actually buys, either. The products on our list are legitimately awesome (though not exactly great bargains).
