    Raspberry Pi, thermostat and 15 year old van and you’ll be able to take down Goldman Sachs

    Is it cumulative? Maybe buy a new MacBook Pro every 3 years.

    Personally, I'd go for a really nice monitor. Unlike other bits of tech, they last a long time.

    Interesting...

    I already have several nice mice, but if not I'd grab one of the high end Logitech. Split mechanical keyboard, or a TeX Yoda if they ever plan on selling them again.

    After that I don't really know... Maybe VR headset? I kind of like the idea of a VR desktop with as many screens as you want surrounding you.
