With boxing day approaching many of you may be tempted to join the Dark Side and buy a computer from BestBuy. Resist the urge! Instead, check out the Microsoft Store online or in person and see what deals they have going on.

Moving along, here are my picks for December 2015.

Mid-Range Laptops

  • Dell Inspiron 15 – $599
    15.6 inch screen, Intel Core i3, 4 GB RAM, 1 TB Hard drive, 5.25 lbs.
  • Dell Inspiron 15 – $679 (More powerful than the model above)
    15.6 inch screen, Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB Hard drive, 5.25 lbs.

High-End Laptops

  • Dell Inspiron 13 – $849
    13.3 inch screen, Intel Core i5, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB Hard drive, 3.66 lbs.
  • Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro – $1,399
    13.3 inch screen, Intel Core M, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB Hard drive, 2.65 lbs.
  • Surface Pro 4 – $1,448.99

Phones

One thing to keep in mind when looking at phones is the amount of storage on the device. Some manufacturers are still releasing 16 GB options which is way to small and limiting. Go for 32 GB and up depending upon your needs.

Apple (iOS)

  • iPhone 6s – $1,029 unlocked / $528.99 on contract
    4.7 inch screen, 64 GB Storage
  • iPhone 6s Plus – $1,159 unlocked / $658.99 on contract
    5.5 inch screen, 64 GB Storage

Google (Android)

  • Google Nexus 5X – $559 unlocked / $129.99 on contract
    5.2 inch screen, 32 GB Storage
  • Google Nexus 6P – $699 unlocked / $199.99 on contract
    5.7 inch screen, 32 GB Storage

BlackBerry

  • BlackBerry Priv – $799.99 unlocked / $399.99 on contract
    5.4 inch screen, 32 GB Storage

As always, if you have any questions please contact me especially if you have a question about a holiday deal.
