For iOS Fans and Content Creators
iPhone 13 Pro Max with 1TB Storage
$1,099.00 at Amazon
Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro Max is the most costly iPhone available right now, with a fully loaded price of $1,599 with maximum storage. The most powerful of all. It’s the most advanced mobile content creation machine on the market right now. It’s a massive and weighty phone, but that’s all part of owning the most powerful CPU on the market (the Apple A15), four 12-megapixel cameras (three in the back, one in the front), a large and long-lasting battery (it lasts up to 18 hours), and a stunning 120Hz screen. The price starts at $1,099, but the enhancements ensure that you’ll be able to store enough photos and video for years to come.
For Big-Screen Fold-Up Fans
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 with 512GB Storage
$1,629.00 at Amazon
The Galaxy Z Fold3, the third version of this folding phablet, costs $1,629.00 It’s pricey, hefty, and the cameras should be improved. However, the Fold3 is also the most unusual smartphone on the market in the United States. When folded, it measures 2.64 by 6.22 by 0.63 inches (HWD) and has a 6.2-inch display. When you unfold the brick, you’ll find a 5.04-by-6.22-by-0.25-inch brick with a nearly square 7.6-inch screen. It’s a great video-meeting or gaming gadget if you fold it up a little. The Fold3 is also dust and water-resistant, and it works with the S-Pen pen. Foldables are the way of the future, and the Fold3 is the most perfect example we’ve seen so far.
For Serious Gamers in Need of a Killer Keyboard
Alienware m17 R4 with Core i9
$1,665.99 at Amazon
It starts at $1,665.99 and goes up to $3,609.99 with a 360Hz refresh-capable HD screen, 32GB RAM, a Core i9-10980HK CPU, and a 512GB boot SSD, with a further 1TB of solid-state storage through two 512GB drives in RAID 0 for testing. It’s also stylish from the outside. All of this adds up to the best 17-inch screen laptop suggestion we can give for the holidays.
For Gifted Gamers With Limited Desk Space
Corsair One a200
$3,599.99 at Amazon
These days, desktop PCs come in various shapes and sizes, but few are as stylish as this ultra-quiet tower. Since the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X inside Corsair’s One a200 is liquid-cooled, it’s maintained cool enough to give excellent gaming performance. The device we examined cost $3,599 and came with 32GB of RAM, a 1TB Corsair Force MP600 M2 SSD, and a 2TB hard drive. The sculpted-metal tower itself is ultracompact, measuring 15 by 6.9 by 7.9 inches—roughly one-third the size of a normal mid-tower—and dates from 2017. The front has a plethora of connectors, as well as two RGB color zones. This is the one to purchase if the gamer on your list doesn’t have much room but yet wants the ultimate gaming tower.
For upper edge imagery in difficult-to-find hardware

$3,269.63 at Amazon

If you’re lucky enough to be able to order one; they sell out quickly.The Suprim X 24G is power-hungry, big (at 13.2 inches long), and wide enough to cover three slots with its triple-fans, so it could be worth a shot. It’s also the most potent card you’ll ever play.
For Fans of flight simulators and racing games
