For those who want to kick back and watch a movie, stream music, or bounce around their photo slideshows, Apple's set-top box is ideal — even if you don't have a Mac (though it works seamlessly with your OS X-based machine). It streams, it downloads, and it plays anything from your iTunes. It allows you to stream even more content from various stores, including Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBO Go, MLB, and a handful of other online media services.

Epson WorkForce 845 All-in-One Printer
Nowadays, printers are relatively cheap. The thing to watch out for remains the cost of ink cartridges. Even then, the WorkForce 845 is relatively good for the wallet in the long run. It's network-compatible, even over Wi-Fi for mobile printing, and provides good-quality printing output. It also lands with scanning and faxing capabilities, making it a pretty good bang for the buck.

HP Slate 7
It may not be the prettiest of tablets, nor the most functional in terms of what it can do for business and enterprises, but it nonetheless still packs a great deal of features — particularly if you're into entertainment on the go. This Android-powered tablet lands with a 7-inch display — though, it's not as sharp or Retina-esque as other tablets — but has expandable storage, is easy to hold, and will last for hours through two or three movies or hours of music playback. While the Google Nexus 7 may be a far better tablet, it exceeds the $150 price-point we're looking for.
