If you only have $50 to spend but don\’t want to skimp on features, you\’ll have the best luck finding low-cost, feature-rich devices in printers and smartphones. There are some surprisingly capable entry-level digital cameras available around the $100 mark, and for the first time, many consumer DSLRs are hovering around the $500 threshold. We\’ve seen new budget options in laptops as well, with the netbook craze bringing some excellent machines from respected manufacturers to market for as little as $350.
