Correct me if I am wrong, but MacBook users are using them because they want something that will deliver them the most valuable performance, right? It opens a world of opportunities and different creative external features that those users would make use out of as well, huh? So, if you are one of those people who’d like to comfort themselves with the best things out there for their laptop, then you should go through all five different gadgets that I am about to describe above.
You would find only convenient things that are at a price suitable for most of us and you would get something that is not only worth the money but will most definitely be helpful to you and your MacBook. The five things that I’d talk about, along with Dave Lee, are the “Kingston Nucleon”, a highly protective “Comfyable” 15″ case, a hybrid charging port, the “nonda” adapter and the “Logitech MX Anywhere 2S” awesome mouse! If you are familiar with them, give me an idea how they perform or what you like/dislike, and if you are not, then you’ll get familiar by the end of this topic.
Comfyable Laptop Sleeve
If you are using an expensive laptop and you are one of those people who keep their belongings neat and protected at all times, then the Comfyable laptop sleeve, that is available for different MacBook models, will be one of the most valuable options from all the 5 that I’ll talk about. It fits only 15″ models for the New MacBook Pro 2016 and 2017 model, from the numbers of A1707 series. If the dimensions of your laptop are 14 x 9.5 x 0.8 inches, then you are good to go with it! You can easily check from what series your model is on Apple’s website, by entering your serial number, that is located on the back of your MacBook.
So, the Comfyable protective case is good for lots of things. First of all, the most important thing is that the exterior is made of durable and waterproof polyester material, so you will never have to worry about spilling a drink or walking through the rain when your laptop is in this laptop sleeve. On the other hand and side, the protective flap in the top interior provides extra protection to your computer and prevent it from snagging by zippers or hitting obstacles, which is the most vulnerable site by analytics.
Aside from the shock and hit proof corners and the water-resistant exterior construction, the EPE foam padding offers a superior protection from shocks and bumps, and the fluffy fleece fabric lining provides a double protection against accidental collisions in the storage, so you are fully protected from every angle and threat.
You can get the beautiful case from Amazon and see what’ll be the price for your model, as it slightly differs for each and every MacBook version.
Kingston Nucleum USB-C Hub
The second addition to our list is this extremely useful and affordable USB-C type hub that will enable you to connect plenty of different devices to it. If you are into editing you can easily use the hub to transfer files right away from your iPhone to your MacBook in just seconds and you even have a 4K HDMI output on it, in case you need a larger eye-platform for your workspace.
It does great if you are using the MacBook for video editing on any producing-related work!While transferring files from your iPhone it will also automatically charge your smartphone as well. The really small size and the high efficiency of the whole gadget make it a really great addition to your portable set!
What is more, it has a microSD slot on it, in case the one in the MacBook is already in use. All these features all-in-one Kingston Nucleum will cost you $80 on Amazon. If you have to get all four options in four different gadgets, you’ll spend twice the amount and with this Nucleum hub, you get all four for only eighty dollars…
Similar to the gadget above, this Jackery PoweBar also has some features stacked into one portable device, that’s great for people who travel and use. The main difference between both is that this one from Jackery is suitable for not only most laptops but different smartphones as well!
It comes with integrated AC wall outlet (100W max) and three USB outputs, so you can enjoy endless power while engaged in outdoor working or relaxing outdoor or out in a place which does not have a convenient power outlet.I’ll give you a list of the smartphones and laptops that it is compatible with below! It is a bit pricy, but will probide you with full power enabling you to charge the device multple times – it will cost you $150 on Amazon.

Nonda Mini Adapter
This is the cheapest device on the list, coming at the price of only $10 on Amazon. It is an adapter that transfers data from iPhone to your MacBook with the speed of 5Gbps data. The build quality is superb for a device of this price and it has an Unibody aluminum casing, which will last a long time, I assure you. It looks superbly beautiful and clean, which is something that I really like! It is the world’s smallest USB-C to USB-A adapter, so if you are carrying it in your pocket, you’ll have to be assured that it will handle it, right?
It comes in three colors and works for the 12″ new MacBook and is also compatible with the Chromebook Pixel and other USB-C devices (OnePlus 3 incompatible). For optimal use, use the mini adapter with an uncovered laptop. If your MacBook is covered by a case, the mini adapter may not plug in properly.
Logitech MX Anywhere 2S
The final and worthy the attention is the Logitech MX Anywhere 2S mouse, that is one of my top 3 mice for MacBook. It is really smart and the Logitech Flow allows you to seamlessly control multiple devices and even copy-paste content and documents between three different computers, which is something that I haven’t heard about in other $55 mouse. When using it you wouldn’t have to think about whether it would work on a particular surface, because it works on anything – even glass!
Not only it works on all surface, but it is wireless and has an endurance of 70 days, before a next charging’s needed! From longer-lasting rechargeable power to greater accuracy on virtually any surface, MX Anywhere 2S makes work flow faster and easier. Compact enough to take with you anywhere, this wireless mouse is crafted to fit comfortably in your hand and help you make things happen anywhere — at home, at work or on the go.
If you combine all the things that I’ve listed above, with the help of Dave Lee, you’ll have a set for your MacBook that will double your productivity. If you are someone that uses his/hers MacBook for work or study, go ahead what you like most of these options!
