She's a social media junkie who camps out at the local cafe (the one with the free wi-fi and great lattes), reading her RSS feeds and working on her blog. Or she loves checking her email and tweeting on the go. Sure, these are things that she can do on her smartphone, but would she really want to hardcode HTML with her thumbs alone? Keep these gifts in mind for the stylish techie gal in your life.
Go luxe: My HP Mini 10.1" netbook ($329.99) has ventured where my more unwieldy laptop fears to go, and after having used it for a couple of months, I think this would make a terrific gift for an Internet addict who needs a smaller computer for on-the-fly work. Although it tends to struggle with loading HD videos, it more than suffices for blogging, email, Twitter, Facebook, and instant messaging--basically the things I use my regular laptop for anyway. Weighing in at 1.31 kg, this little machine is super portable and perfect for overnight stays, lengthy voyages, jaunts to the local cafe, meetings on the go, and mobile blogging. For the university students among my readers, think about what a godsend this would be for notetaking in lectures and word processing as you're cranking out the term papers in the library. Although there are smaller models and pricier ones, the larger keyboard on this model makes it ideal for those who expect to do a lot of typing.
Spend less: If you don't have the funds to supply your hopeless Internet addict with a shiny new netbook, shell out for something to keep her current laptop/netbook safe, sound, and stylish when it's being transported. The SlingTravel purse ($46) by BorsaBella uses thick foam and fleece to cushion the netbook from scratches and blows, and features a detachable strap so she can use it as a purse or a netbook sleeve.
