By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 39 comments

It's that time again!

Every year we painstakingly select the greatest products on the market for our array of Holiday Gift Guides. Whether you're shopping for the hardcore enthusiast in your life or the casual user who just wants a nice, light laptop to surf the web and send emails, we've got you covered.

Still, they wouldn't be Tom's Holiday Guides without the charming elves that help out in the workshop. To that end, we've enlisted three of the most beautiful helpers to make sure your holiday shopping is as pain-free as possible. You can expect to see the first of our guides next week, but here's a few sneaky behind-the-scenes pictures of the ever so helpful and delightful Carlyn to satisfy curious minds...

    Carlyn? That means there must be 2 of them. I thought there was only one out in the world.

    Can't wait to see the guides!

    If she were any cuter, the camera would be sporting wood.

    Nice setup...what do you guys use for studio gear? I see 3 C stands and a nice 55" stripbox. They don't look like PCB softboxes...Calumet or Elinchrom?

    There are three in total, each one cuter than the last. If you're good, you can see our other two helpers on Friday. :)

    And I thought I was the only one to notice the photography setup. Cause other then that i was like ISO 1600WTF(noise), but that was just to show the setup they had.

    I'm not a pro photographer, but the room looked dark. Would u want more light? I guess that's what flash is for. Oh, and last year I noticed that a lot of shots had the ladies in perfect focus, but the components were slightly out of focus. I'm sure it was intentional

    Sheesh, even on a tech website people still put their laptops on warm, insulating rugs to overheat.

    Wow....thanks for uploading the full-sized images! :D 


    P.S. Thank god. Had that been a Macbook on that rug, i'd lose faith in Tom's completely.
    P.S.2. What do the girl readers get? No six-pack dudes or whatever women like????
