To this day, Belkin’s BoostCharge Pro remains our favorite MagSafe 3-in-1 stand for home use. The triple charging solution offers true 15W MagSafe charging speeds, the ability to fast-charge newer Apple Watch models starting with the Series 7, and support for iOS 17’s new StandBy mode, which gives you an easy way to turn your phone into a clock, calendar, or a nifty photo frame for your desk. It’s also outfitted with a 5W charging pad on the bottom, so you can juice a pair of wireless earbuds, an Android phone, or pretty much any device that supports Qi wireless charging.
Apple’s new M3 processor may be the company’s latest and greatest chipset, but you don’t need blistering performance just to browse the web or stream your favorite shows on Netflix. Thankfully, if you’re looking for a desktop machine, Apple’s latest Mac Mini is on sale at Amazon and B&H Photo in its entry-level configuration for $479 ($120 off) with a base M2 chip, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.
Although it often feels like Apple’s miniature desktop doesn’t get a lot of love — blame the 13-inch MacBook Air — it’s a terrific choice for everyday computing needs. The latest model retains the small footprint of its predecessor while outfitting with a few much-needed spec bumps, most notably, Apple’s still-speedy M2 chip and support for Wi-Fi 6E. It also touts a bevy of ports, specifically two Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB-A ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and HDMI 2.0 output. The only real downside, aside from the fact that none of the ports are located on the front of the device, is that you’ll have to supply your own monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
