Best Tech Deals and Gifts 2021: PC Gaming, VR, Mobile Devices, and Streaming Gear


Oculus Quest 2 – $299

The Oculus Quest 2 is the device that should, by all rights, bring virtual reality to the mainstream. It doesn’t need external cameras, so setup time is minimal, and it doesn’t need an expensive PC to run the games, either. Just download games and apps to the headset, pop it on your head, and away you go.

Of course, if you do have a high-powered PC, you can play amazing titles like Half Life: Alyx with the optional Oculus Link cable, too. And if you want in on Mark Zuckerberg’s metaverse future, this is the VR headset you’ll want.

Buy the Oculus Quest 2 on Amazon.

Valve Index – $999

If money is no object, you have the PC grunt to run it, and you can actually get hold of one, then the Valve Index is the virtual reality headset to get this year. It lacks the immediacy of the Oculus Quest 2 and can’t run without a PC or the movement tracking base stations, but the room scale experience is second to none with crisp visuals and high refresh rates to really lose yourself in a virtual world. Pair with Half-Life: Alyx. Trust us.

Buy the Valve Index on Amazon.

Phones and Mobile Gaming

Apple iPhone 13 Pro – $999

Apple lovers know the deal already with the latest iPhone, but if you haven’t been converted yet, the biggest new features in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max are the upgraded cameras — including a new low-light performance mode and a cinematic video mode — a brand-new chip for lightning fast operation, improved battery life, and a fresh operating system.
