The Surface Geek Gift Guide 49

If you asked a Surface Geek what to get someone for Christmas, this is what you would hear!  It’s not just a list of Surface Pros but actually a nice list of stocking stuffers, under $100, under $500, and a list of large gifts.  It starts with a bang and I almost got laughed off of the podcast!  You will have to tune in to find out why.  We also cover the news of the week. Start Menu returning and Nokia forks the Droid.  Enjoy!

    Only on Surface Geeks will you find a gift guide void of the Surface 2, but instead an iPad mini and a MacBook air!

    Yup, by design. That was my directive to not be so OBVIOUS and to put some thought into the gift list. We all recommend the Surface 2 day in and day out. It would have been a boring show had we just said Surface 2 and wrapped it up. Come on…

    Now, run to the store and find me one!
