Grazia Daily Gift Guide - TECH SPECIAL! With ASUS, Apple, Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen.

Roll up, roll up ladies and gentlemen, because it is time for the technology edition of the Grazia Daily Christmas gift guide. Ta-daaa! This year, we've selected a few of our favourite new technological treats and, crucially, accessories for you to pop on your lust-list this Christmas.

Straight in at number one is the new range of Ultrabooks by Intel. Basically, these babies are the PC equivalent of the Apple Macbook Air - super light and sexy to look at, and with the same level of performance as their bigger siblings. Our favourite is the ASUS Ultrabook, which we have fully road tested and which provoked actual squeals of joy when it arrived at Grazia HQ. Finally, PC-loving girls and boy can hold their heads up high.

For Mac lovers, though, the new iPad 2 is, undoubtedly, the best thing ever. With two cameras for facetime and HD video, a gazillion apps and iCloud - a nifty little number which stores all your music, pics, documents and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. Ace. It is also, crucially, very very sexy and comes in original black or white. Mmm... Pretty.

But you'll need something to store these babies in, of course, and we've scoured the interweb to select two of our favourites.

Our top pic of the laptop cases is this snake print design my Marc by Marc Jacobs. With a snake printed outer and a fluro yellow faux fur inner, it basically looks like a really fancy bag and is perfect for taking your ASUS Ultrabook around in.

Our top iPad cover comes from Alexander McQueen, whose chic black leather case is fastened with a signature skull popper. Fab. U. Lous.
