Macbook Air 13-inch 256 GB: My bread and butter.
Ipad with retina display 64 GB: I use it for most of my digital reading (kindle and pdfs) and plan to utilize it more for teaching down the road.
iPhone 5 with 32 GB: After sojourning with Android for a while, I've returned to the iPhone. The GTD apps (Omnifocus and Things) were pivotal for making the switch, but hardly the only reason.
Brother DCP-8085dn Digital Copier and Laser Printer: This is my second Brother laser printer and I'm not sure how I would've survived my doctoral coursework without one. Auto-duplexing is essential and now that I'm teaching, its nice to have a copier/scanner on hand, especially with both flatbed and a 50 pg auto-document (and auto-duplexing) feeder options.
N.B. While there are endless options for buying hardware, I tend to stick with Best Buy because their insurance and financing options are hard to beat.
