Smartphone, though netbook is a close second.

I recently got an e-reader and think it is fantastic. No more carrying around books :)

This year .... <h3><strong> The Raspberry Pi </strong></h3>

I'm with Slackstone. The Raspberry PI.

Desktop Computer
CD Player

I say laptop, in part because I am one of the few that don't have a smartphone yet.

Although with the recent power-outage from Sandy I do see the benefit of a smartphone in those scenarios. My chromebook includes free 3G (until January) so that became one point of contact to the outside world.

So if I had a smartphone, I suspect I would select that.

Ultimately, though, either means is to what I am even more thankful for: the Internet. :)

The Raspberry Pi, for sure!

Netbooks! For me they have the best of everything I need. Long battery life, flexibility in software, flexibility in OS's, lots of connectivity options, and portability.

My chromebook a laptop I don't have to wait to start using.
