This week we’ve increased the budget to Rs. 35,000 and have filled our basket with all kinds of goodies for you to check out.
Do keep in mind that the prices mentioned are the best prices we could find from retailers and could vary slightly depending on your location VAT etc.
Sony PlayStation 3 (Rs. 16,990)
The PlayStation 3 may look like just a gaming console but it’s so much more doubling up as a media centre for you to watch movies on, listen to music, surf the net and lots more. It’s got a wide selection of must play first party titles that span a variety of genres. You can race around the world in immaculately detailed cars with Gran Turismo 5, search for ancient treasure as Nathan Drake, maim and mutilate all of Greek mythology as Kratos, fight for freedom against the Helghast in Killzone 3 and lots more. If hardcore gaming is not your thing, attach a move controller and enjoy some of Sony’s motion controlled games on offer. And best of all, this can be yours for just Rs. 16,990.
For the love of gaming
Fly Vision Android Tablet (Rs, 7,299)
Fly has been quite evident in the budget mobile handset market and has only recently decided to join the fray with the likes of iBall and Beetel with their own tablet device. The Fly Vision sports a 7-inch resistive touchscreen with an 800 x 480 pixel resolution. While it’s no match for the ultra-low priced Akash tablet, the vision still manages to offer 3G, telephony and Wi-Fi running on a 600MHz processor with Android 2.2 aka Froyo for the OS. It seems like a well-rounded device that could work well for those looking for net connectivity and a little media thrown in as well.
An affordable "Vision"
Canon PowerShot A2200 Compact Camera (Rs. 5,790)
During the festival of lights, one tends to have many parties and celebrations and pictures are a way of capturing the essence of the moment. So what better way to capture this essence other than purchasing a nice camera this Diwali. The Canon PowerShot A2200 is an amazing camera and would suit all your photographic needs. This camera features a 14.1MP CCD sensor, ISO range of 80 – 1600 along with a 4x optical zoom. One can even record videos in 720p HD through this compact point and shoot. It is extremely easy to operate and could be the ideal gift for yourself or your loved one. The Canon PowerShot A2200 sells at a street price of Rs. 5,800 and this will be an ideal way to capture the different lights in the night time sky of Diwali.
Snap away those fireworks
Audio Technica ATH-T200 (Rs, 1,450)
When it comes to gaming, listening to music or watching movies, speakers although great, can be an inconvenience to those around you. They are loud and you often have to tone down the volume a good bit. Headphones are a good alternative to speakers and they're pretty affordable. The Audio Technica ATH-T200 for example, will only set you back by Rs. 1,450 and should be a great addition to your PC if you're looking to listen to music and do some light gaming from time to time. Head over to Pristine Note if you want to buy it online. They should be the perfect companion to both your PC and your phone. If you're looking for something a little cheaper, there's always the Sennheiser HD201.

RC Flying Tiny Skull Helicopter (Rs. 1,299)
Right around the corner from Diwali is Halloween and after receiving your gifts and sweets, it's only fair that the favours are returned with a little spook. The RC Flying Tiny Skull Helicopter is a remote controlled helicopter but instead of your typical chopper vestibule, it's a skull. And your remote is in the shape of a bone. The eye sockets are filled with a neon green glow. Using the remote, you can make the helicopter fly up and down as well as left and right, but not forward and back. The body is made up of crash proof material. The gizmo is available from leading toy stores like Hamleys and Toys 'R' Us for Rs. 1,299.

Logitech C210 Webcam (Rs. 999)
Diwali is celebrated with a lot of pomp and joy in India, and it's sad if you're away from your family during this auspicious festival. Not only that, today's busy lifestyle means lesser time for loved ones. This Diwali you can stay connected with both family and friends with the new Logitech C210 webcam. Nothing beats being with your loved ones on these auspicious days, but if that's not happening, seeing them live is definitely the next best thing. The Logitech C210 has a 1.3 megapixel sensor, and a built-in mic with Logitech's Rightsound technology that takes care of your video and audio needs. Also, there's a universal clipon that supports LCD and CRT monitors and the rotating degree is quite wide so you don't need to worry about viewing angles. It's priced at Rs. 999 and makes for a brilliant buy this Diwali.
