  • MacBook Air 13” M2 (2022) 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD - Absolutely love this little machine. It’s super fast and the battery life is amazing. It’s the best laptop I’ve ever owned.
  • Sony WH-CH720N Wireless Headphones - Not the most high-end headphones, but for the price, it’s a bang for the buck. I use these all the time for listening to podcasts.
