When you get a new MacBook, you get a powerful machine with one connection for peripherals. Simplicity is great, but let’s be real: Nobody uses USB-C exclusively. That makes having a single USB-C connection severely limiting.
MacBooks ship with a pretty sizeable hard drive, but that storage can disappear fast. Whether your job involves large file types or you just like saving your favorite TV shows, you’re likely to find yourself wanting a little more space on your computer without having to add an external hard drive to your computer bag.
Tired of fraying and failing cables? Belkin just launched the Mixit DuraTek USB-C cable, a brawny cord built with Kevlar and a special strain-reducing design that should put an end to premature cable death.
Measuring 4 feet long with USB-C connections on each end, the new DuraTek cable sounds perfect for the latest MacBooks and MacBook Pros.
There is little about a shoulder bag that is personal. Sure you can pick something with a color and shape you can live with, but utility drives the design.
The Maverick, as the name suggests, aspires to stand out from the pack. Created by San Francisco’s WaterField Designs, the full-grain leather bag cut from a single hide presents like a Pony Express satchel begging for a dustup on some dry Western trail.
Apple’s “thin and light” approach for its latest laptops totally breaks down when it comes to charging, due to the sizable power adapter that ships with the computers. Luckily, a tiny new USB-C charger will let you leave Apple’s ungainly charging brick at home.
We could all use an extra couple hundred gigs of space on our MacBook, but no one is excited about having a bulky and expensive external drive sticking out of their computer. Hence the appeal of Nifty’s MiniDrive, which seamlessly adds up to 200GB to your MacBook without altering the laptop’s sleek profile.
