In Pictures: The 2012 geek gadget gift guide

While others dream of sugarplums, here are a dozen gadgets that the true geek is hoping to see under the Christmas tree this year

Logitech Touchpad T650

Although we can't in good conscience recommend Windows 8, if you get Microsoft's newest operating system, do yourself a big favor and pick up the Touchpad T650 trackpad to go with it. That way, you're not uncomfortably reaching out to the screen in front of you -- a possible ergonomic risk. Instead, you use Windows 8's gestures on a desk surface, where your hands already are planted for the keyboard and mouse, similar to how a Mac user would use Apple's $69 Magic Trackpad.

Product: Logitech Touchpad T650 Price: $80

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
