My Prime Day favorite things (not Oprah)

Prime Day is coming soon. I hesitated to do this because I’m not a product hawker and I’m really not a gadget person. I know that’s weird for an IT pro. But in the end, I decided to share a few things that might go on sale. And something fun at the end.


Books will not go on sale. But you may as well pick these up anyway. They are the texts that we chose to drive our Intune and Defender courses.

Microsoft Windows + Copilot devices

The age of the ARM device is finally upon us. Apple is there and now Microsoft is too. I’m frankly just curious. A 22-hour battery life, SnapDragon processor and 64-bit emulation makes these devices every bit as functional as an Intel power laptop. Plus there’s an NPU. Not sure why I need neural processing unit, but they tell me that it’ll make Copilot and other AI’s faster and better at their job. I saw one in the wild at a conference in actual use by an attendee and it was beautiful. The price is right too. Microsoft Surface Laptop (2024), Windows 11 Copilot+ PC, 15″ Touchscreen Display, Snapdragon X Elite (12 core), 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD Storage, Platinum $12999

Or get it in blue for $100 less. Who doesn’t want a blue laptop?

Or if you want the Pro in blue for more of that tablet experience. It’s even less.

If you buy something from Anker it just works and it’s the best. There’s nothing more to be said about it. There are pretenders but don’t fall for it. I only buy Anker.

This very flat power strip with USB ports: Anker 727 Charging Station (GaNPrime 100W), Compact Power Strip for Travel, Work, 5 ft Detachable Extension Cord with 2 Outlets and 4 USB Ports

This iPhone/watch/pods night stand charger travels with me everywhere: This is 15% off right now. I’m getting two more.

All of the Anker things:

A pocket full of magnets

I have ordered these before and now they are gone. I used every one of them. Once you have 100 magnets, you’ll find 200 uses for them.
