HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM)- Electronics are on the top of wish lists of the young and old this year.

 Best Buy in Hattiesburg says much of the Christmas crowd is looking for the hi-tech items this year. Officials there say computers, TVs, and video games are among the hot items.

T hey say the popularity of electronics as gifts is a result of those looking for things that make life easier.

"A lot of it has to do with the life style today," said General Manager Terry Lee. "Everybody is busy, everybody needs something that is going to get their life better and that's what electronics can do for most people."

Lee says about 80 to 90% of customers' wish lists are electronics.
