Amazon Echo - Black (1st Generation)
It all starts here. Some people prefer to go the Google Home route but I like the Alexa better personally. A lot of products will work with both so it's your choice.
I've been getting a lot of requests lately about which laptop to buy for someone so I thought I'd put together a list of the best available in different price ranges. I will keep updating and changing it as new models come out or prices change. Fell free to ask any questions!
