In today's Christmas edition of the Consumer Countdown, analysts Michael Finarelli and Sean O'Reilly join Mark Reeth to discuss some of the big gifts they hope to find under their trees this year. Michael is hoping Santa brings an Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL ) iPad Mini for his son, one that could replace his old LeapFrog (UNKNOWN: LF.DL ) device. His 6-year-old son has been using a LeapFrog tablet -- a just-for-kids device designed for educational purposes -- but is outgrowing it and could use something with more functionality.
Meanwhile, Mark and Sean are hoping that Santa delivers a new Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT ) Xbox One to both of them to fulfill all of their gaming dreams. Neither of them has gotten a new video game system recently, and both have chosen the Xbox One over Sony's (NYSE: SNE ) competing PS4; Sean likes the Xbox One's controller, while Mark prefers the One's family functionality.
