Satechi Thunderbolt dock
Macbooks are brilliant machines but one thing they lack are the number of ports. Many of the accessories that you’ll need to use will need a port and the macbook just doesn’t have enough ports.

All this in just one simple and slim device, which is very easy to use and equally easy to carry around with you.
To quickly transfer files between your macbook and any other computer we recommend the Sandisk dual drive.

With this seamless transfer of files between your macbook and any other device is ensured.

Carrying so many accessories together can be a hassle. To avoid that hassle we recommend using the Bellroy campus backpack.
It has a comfortable shoulder strap with back padding making it super comfortable to carry. It has ample space to fit your macbook as well as most of its accessories and extra stuff. The water resistant design protects your macbook and all its accessories from all sorts of liquid while the sustainable fabric makes sure the backpack lasts long.
Twelve South Curved Stand for Macbook
Maintaining a good posture while working especially for long intervals is crucial for your body. To get to the posture a stand might be required to elevate the macbook to the proper height. For that we recommend the twelve south curved stand for macbook.
As this stand is specifically made for the macbook it allows for proper airflow which keeps your macbook cool even after long use. It holds the macbook at an ergonomic height which relieves strain. Its anti-slip silicone pads make sure that your macbook is held firmly in its place.
Logitech Craft Keyboard
The macbook has a great keyboard and the keys have a nice travel to them which makes typing fun but there is an important thing which they miss out on and that’s the number pad. Also while using the stand is necessary to maintain posture, it makes it very hard to use the keyboard properly, hence you’ll need another keyboard. For this we recommend the Logitech Craft Keyboard.
The Craft has a unique feature which is known as the “crown”. The crown is a dial on the upper left hand corner which lets you map different actions on it, upto 3 actions. The crown can even be configured to work on a per-app basis. This makes your work super efficient and only your imagination is the limit on how to use the crown.
The keys have a matt finish on them which allows the fingers to move effortlessly between each key. A spherical design coupled with pretty large keys ensures that you are typing with extreme precision.
The inbuilt trackpad of the macbook is good no doubt, but to get the best accuracy, you will need a mouse. Hence we recommend the logitech mouse.
This mouse can last a full day with just 3 minutes of charging and with full charge upto 70 days, how amazing is that? It has a 4000 DPI sensor making it capable of working on virtually any surface even on glass. It has a comfortable and intuitive design, providing a thumb wheel as well.
