Most wanted: the tech you're buying this week

Sony's Bravia D3000 series is already a hot seller on Amazon UK

To kick off our new weekly round-up of the top selling products, today we take a look at what's flying off the (virtual) shelves at .

In the computing category, it seems we're either going for dirt-cheap Acer computers, or higher-end Apple gear. Apple unsurprisingly also tops the poll with portable media players, with the Apple iPod and Apple iPod nano models.

Sony leads the way in HDD recorders, as well as in the higher-end TV category with its 32-inch HD-ready Bravia LCD TV. Among the cheaper versions of HD-ready flat-screen TVs, Samsung had the clear lead at the time of writing.

The Nintendo Wii gaming console is still selling like hot cakes. Meanwhile, the best selling mobile phone is a low-end Nokia model which comes with included talk time.
