Apple's best selling tablet computer has won a recommendation from Which? Computing in the run up to Christmas.

Earlier this month, the consumer focused magazine offered up the 'Which? Computing's must-have gadgets' and the 'tech buys that make great Christmas gifts.'

Apple's iPad heads the list with Which? noting: "This was one of the most-hyped gadgets of 2010. Its sleek design, slick touchscreen interface and those all-important apps mean it’s the tablet that's on almost everybody's wish list."

Every month, Which? claims to conduct independent and extensive tests on hundreds of products and services. "Every aspect of product performance and specification – price, running costs, efficiency, and reliability – is compared against exacting criteria," insists Which?

Other gadgets receiving Which? approval this Christmas include the Amazon Kindle, Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1, Microsoft Xbox 360 Kinect, Samsung UE55C8000 3D TV and HTC Desire Android smartphone.

The latest issue of Which? Computing is available now.
