#2. Fujifilm X-Pro 1
If you’ve had dreams of getting a Leica without paying a Leica price, the Fujifilm X-Pro 1 should fulfill your dreams. This camera goes a step up from the Fujifilm X100 by adding an interchangeable lens system and produces high-quality images thanks to its custom-created 16-megapixel CMOS sensor. Other features include a hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder with magnifier, as well as manual dials for shutter speed control and exposure compensation.
#3. Alienware X51
The Alienware X51 by Dell is for serious gamers only. It’s a sweet, slim, compact gaming computer that can be used either vertically or horizontally. It has a mini-ITX motherboard and accessible layout, so it’s a snap to upgrade hardware components. This 8 GB gamer also has CPU and graphics card features, a slot-loading optical drive for DVDs, HDMI 1.4, multiple USB ports, on-board Wi-Fi, digital 7.1 surround sound, multiple speaker ports, an external power supply and three lighted zones with variable LED colors.
#4. Lasonic 1931X
The ultimate 1980s icon has been reinvented in the Lasonic 1931X, a boombox with a full iPod port. It also accommodates non-iPod MP3 players, courtesy of a USB port, a 3.5mm slot and an SD card slot. The Lasonic also has all the traditional trappings of a mega-boombox with an AM/FM radio, microphone input, headphone output, LCD strip, alarm clock and multiple volume controls. It is even plated in a gold-color finish, because every boombox should be gold, shouldn’t it?
#5. ION LP 2 GO

Now, you don’t have to, thanks to the ION LP 2 GO, a portable USB turntable that brings your vinyl collection back to life again. What sets the ION apart is that it’s portable, so you can just stash it in a bag and carry it with you. Best of all, the ION can play both 33 and 45-RPM recordings and can even convert them to MP3.
