The festive period may be seen by some people as a great chance to trade-in their mobile phone and switch to an Apple iPad.
Stuff magazine predicts the manufacturer's premier tablet device is going to be "a massive hit" this Christmas.
Editor Will Findlater says it is likely to see off the competition provided by all other tablets, such as the Samsung Galaxy and BlackBerry Playbook.
"What the iPad has on its side is an absolutely stunning roster of apps, with some really great games and really interesting and creative stuff," he explains.
Those who subscribe to such a view and feel they are suited to a tablet may wish to ask a loved one to buy the handset for them as a seasonal gift and trade-in a mobile for money.
Apple recently revealed sales of its iPad, iPhone and Mac were up over the last quarter, which ended on September 25th, to approximately $20 billion (£12.75 billion) in total.
