Now shipping: MacBooks with the M2 PRO

If you want to get your hands on a new M2 PRO MacBook, as of the time of writing both 14″ and 16″ options are in-stock and ready to ship at the B&H website. The M2 MAX are marked as “coming soon”…

As usual with high-demand newly-released items, YMMV…

UPDATE: also “now shipping” are the annual Trader Joe Customer Choice Awards 🙂 I won’t spoil the overall winner but it has hints of chili and lime 🙂 And no, it’s not a lime-chili danish kringle 🙂

Free Shipping at with coupon

If you’ve always wanted to buy things from Drop (artist formerly known as Massdrop) but didn’t want to pay shipping, you are in luck! Until 1/29/23 at 11:59pm pacific time, coupon code NOMOREOUTAGES (all in one word) gets you free shipping at the Drop website. And if your order total is $125+ [their usual free shipping threshold] you get free FASTER shipping.
