These days, you can't go anywhere without being surrounded by gadgets. From iPad's to iPhones, smartphones, tablets and netbooks, it seems as if everyone has one. Until now, most of these gadgets have gained strong reputations for breaking the bank, with the majority of them holding price tags of $500 or higher. Fortunately, it seems as if budget-friendly gadgets are becoming the latest technology trend. If you've dreamed of owning your own iPad or netbook, there's no better time than now to invest.

Google Chromebook

At just $249, the Google Chromebook is the first Google computer with all of the features of a more expensive netbook at less than half the price. This 2.42lb netbook is sleek and light enough to fit in your purse or backpack, but it carries a powerful punch. With a Samsung Exynos 5 dual processor and built-in dual band Wi-Fi, it's an ideal netbook for both personal and business use. Even better, businesses can rent Chromebooks starting at just $30 per month.

Apple iPad Mini

The iPad Mini was rumored to be in the making for quite some time, but tech junkies everywhere can now get their hands on the new, smaller and faster iPad Mini for just $330. What sets apart the iPad Mini from the more expensive iPad 3, apart from its lower price, is that it is ultra fast. In fact, Apple claims the newest addition to the iPad clan is up to twice as fast as any previously release iPad. And of course, users will get all of the best features, including access to more than 275,000 apps, FaceTime and dual iSight cameras.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD

At just $199, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD is an ideal gift for anyone who can't bear the thought of being without entertainment. With a 7" HD display and built-in dual Wi-Fi, the Kindle Fire is perfect for storing and viewing all of your favorite movies, TV shows, music, magazines, books, photos and even gives you access to your favorite mobile apps. Additionally, this tablet features a front-facing high-definition camera for video calls with friends and family via Skype.

Google Nexus 7

Another budget-friendly gadget from Google, Nexus 7 is the latest Google tablet that uses the infamous Android 4.1 Jellybean platform. Also priced at just $199, it gives users access to more than 600,000 apps, ebooks, music, and endless hours of entertainment. The tablet features a powerful NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor, so users can expect it to run fast and survive on standby for up to 300 hours.
