  • every year's my best gift is my lovely teen-age daughter's kiss and birthday card to me^-^.

  • BlackBerry phones with all their apps. Those same apps were already doing what the apps are doing now. Enjoy the Holidays and stay safe.

  • Got married.

  • My favorite technology gift was a very long time ago. Christmas 1978:TRS-80 Model 1.$599.95

    This was my first personal computer system and lead to a lifelong passion and carrier in computer and network technologies.

    • The TRS-80 was one of the first mass-marketed, fully assembled microcomputers.
    • The initial price was $599.95, and it included a typewriter-style keyboard, monitor, and a cassette recorder to load and backup your computer programs and data.

    The original TRS-80 Model I system was composed of three pieces:

    • The computer with power supply and built-in keyboard cost $399.95 (catalog number 26-1001) 
    • A 12-inch display cost $199.95  (catalog number 26-1201)
    • A Realistic CTR-41 cassette recorder cost $49.95 (catalog number 14-841)
      • (Streaming Tap I/O like the big mainframes of the day.)

    When those components were bought together to form a complete system it cost $599.95 (catalog number 26-1051).

  • But back to answering this. My most favorite gift I had ever received was the gratification of knowing I made someone else happy by giving or helping.  That to me will always be the best feeling in the world. Thanks 

  • Hi I'm zak, I'm new to the Lenovo community. Just made my account last night in hopes to start my new life and small buisness. Only sad part is, I'm trying to shop for a laptop lol its so so difficult, never would I have imagined picking out a laptop would be. 

  • beautiful handmade and custom designed piece of pottery to hold fresh fruit on the counter. Super talented potter we ran into while in Colorado.  My wife worked with them and surprised me many months later with this fantastic present

  • A beautiful hand made specially designed pottery bowl for keeping fresh fruit. It is the most amazing piece of pottery and i was completely fooled

  • My dad got me my first computer in 1984, a Commodore 64 (original Brown keyboard edition), which started me on my current IT course!

  • Never really received anything cool. I did give someone an Xbox as a gift.
