10 tech gifts for the stinking rich

Does the word "budget" hold no meaning to you? Then have a look at these seriously awesome (and expensive) gifts

Article comments

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).


SimXperience Stage 5 Motion Racing Simulator

If you’re trying to find the perfect gift for a racing enthusiast, but the cost of an actual sports car (not to mention the insurance!) seems a bit extravagant, check out the line of motion simulator cockpits available from SimXperience. Naturally, for real luxury you should insist on the most expensive rig in the lineup: the Stage 5, which comes equipped with three 46-inch screens, a touchscreen control panel, and a custom PC.
