Gifts for the top 1% of geeks

You may not be able to afford to spend $2 million on a personal submarine, but it's still fun to see what geeks with that kind of cash might buy this holiday season.

We've been hearing a lot about the "top 1%" in the news lately, thanks to the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations. That got us thinking about what the top 1% of geeks would have on their wish list this year. We compiled 23 tongue-in-cheek gift ideas for those individuals, which you can view in gallery format or in list format below. Even if you aren't in the top 1%, it's still fun to dream big and do a little online window shopping.
