Well, what hardware would you ask the jolly red gent to leave under your tree this Yule? Drop us a line listing the three gadget goodies you'd most like Santa to bring and tell us why.

Update This competition is now closed.

Whether they're items you can buy today or kit that could be made by Santa's Elves a few years down the line, we want to hear about the most mouth-watering hardware and read most exciting reasons why they should top the want-list of any self-respecting technology nut. Extra points will be awarded for back-of-an-envelope sketches, diagrams etc.

Entries should be emailed with the subject line 'Reg Hardware Dear Santa Compo'. The closing date is Friday, 15 December, with a cut-off time of 11.59pm GMT. You must include your name and postal address, and send your entry from a valid email address.

Every day during the following week we'll pick out and publish the five best entries. We can't promise to send the winners the device of their dreams, but we can guarantee a stylish Reg T-shirt and maybe a little something for their Christmas stockings. ®
