    Ipod touch 2nd generation (8gb) and 5th generation (32gb). The 5th gen Ipod touch was the last Apple product I've ever owned, bought it 8 years ago.

    I really like those all-in-one PCs especially Acer and HP. Might switch it up and go with Acer since all I own is HP thus far.

    Also have a 4G Network Extender with Verizon. For those with poor cell phone signals, it works great.

    I have one Acer laptop. It is okay, but I'd hate to have to use it regularly. It was inexpensive, and it isn't very fast. I ended up not being able to use it for home because it just doesn't work for multi-tasking. The lag is terrible.

    I took it to work, and it is perfect for taking attendance and checking email. I bought an HP Envy for home. It's way, way better for running multiple applications.

    I’m not sure. I’ll have to check next time I use it.

    Just a little bit of an old person rant...
    I hate the fact that you can hardly find a modern laptop that allows you to add memory or change the battery. For that matter you can hardly find a phone that allows you to change the battery.

    If I were to get a laptop, I'd get nothing less than 8 gbs of RAM. You want to be able to get in and out of programs quickly without hangup. Nothing drives me up the wall like a slow computer.

    I don't even own a phone. My district issued computer is a MacBook Air from 2015.

    Only tech worth mentioning that I own is my guitar equipment. I won't bore you with brand/model details.
    Even my live guitar rig is minimal tech:
    3 analog pedals > 90's tube preamp > 2010 digital FX processor > 90's analog speaker simulator (I don't play through a real speaker anymore) > stage PA system

    Just like the gamers, YouTube and digital recording tech has contributed to the rise of guitar players who can record and publish quality videos of their skills, without leaving the house.
    Tube equipment is still the choice of purists but the digital modeling equipment is getting better every decade. The market for boutique analog pedals is bigger than ever.

    How did I forget my HP 8610 all in one? I've had it for going on seven years.

    Ended up getting an Acer 315 Chromebook. Lightweight and blazing fast all thanks to an emmc.

    Also have a racing wheel and pedals to go with the PS2 though I rarely play it. Added a webcam with tripod, spare cables, adapters and a universal travel organizer for my techbag for work. Also have more flash drives than I can count plus a wireless mouse and keyboard for my Windows XP desktop.
