and On Schedule
Around the holidays, many of us are multitasking more than ever, so it’s important to have the tools to keep you organized. A new laptop can help you plan holiday meals, organize recipes and shopping lists, and even design and create invitations and cards. You can even use your laptop to video chat with those who can’t join the holiday festivities.
Laptop shoppers should consider memory and speed, plus other factors such as portability, battery life and connectivity, such as a chargeable USB port for your cell phone. Obviously, quality of the display is important, too, so you can use it in any lighting condition.
The holidays are a hectic time, so make sure you can stay connected. A new smartphone or tablet is perfect for this time of year, and comes in handy when you’re out and about picking up relatives at the airport, entertaining the kids on the way to grandma’s or finding a last-minute holiday gift.
Smartphones and tablets are packed with ways to keep you connected, organized and entertained. With advanced processors, powerful cameras and gorgeous displays, there are few things mobile devices can’t do. Just think about how you’ll use yours, then target those features.

How about a holiday film festival? Smart TVs, Blu-ray players and home theater systems make your favorite holiday movies that much better. Use the Netflix app to show your new and old favorites to family and friends, or use the Pandora app to create a holiday playlist.

You’ll also find special settings, effects and filters that help you get creative with your holiday party invitations and home videos.
Before you buy, it’s good to know which features matter most and where you’ll be shooting. On a ski trip? At a holiday dinner with your grandchildren? Portraits, landscapes or group shots? Do you want to share photos online? Determine your needs to find the camera or camcorder with the right features.
With the heavy-duty cooking that seems to accompany holiday entertaining, a new range might be just the thing you need to get meals on the table (and on time). You’ll want a range that’s quick, efficient and large enough to accommodate the holiday turkey or multiple batches of gingerbread cookies. And don’t forget cleanup. After a long day of cooking the last thing you’ll want to do is spend time scrubbing your oven, so look for a range that gets it done with the push of a button.

Make Room for
Appetizers & Leftovers
Not just in your belly, but in your fridge. Since holiday meals require more planning and preparation, a new refrigerator can provide smarter storage and extra room for appetizers, desserts and wine—a must if you want to throw a good party. And when it’s all over, you’ll definitely need a place to store some of those delicious leftovers.
Depending on what you want in a fridge, a new model can do more than keep food fresh. Some come ready for Wi-Fi connectivity and preloaded apps for creating notes and shopping lists, finding recipes, playing music, and the latest weather. Plus, the new, sleek designs will give a boost to any kitchen décor.

You’ll need a washer that can handle large loads and bulky comforters, plus a large dryer that gets everything completely dry in fewer loads—so you can to spend more time with your guests.
The latest washer and dryer models clean more with less power (which means less spending on energy bills). Look for special features such as Samsung’s Vibration Reduction Technology, which reduces noise, and PowerFoam™ Technology.
