One of the things I like about my 2015 Macbook Pro is that unlike newer MacBooks, it has the magnetic charger that used to differentiate Apple laptops from all others. If my cable gets bumped or pulled, it breaks free from my laptop — rather than crashing everything to the floor. SynCharge promises to give Type-C MacBooks back that feature.
When looking for items to put on my new desk, one thing I knew I would need was a dock for my MacBook. Rather than just having it sitting by itself, I wanted it to have an elegant look to it, so I immediately turned to Grovemade.
Colorware is a popular company known for coating consumer products such as Bose, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and even Apple products. The company sent over their special full-body Matte black Colorware skin for the 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro and it’s made a traditionally Space Grey laptop look even better.
Against Judie’s suggestion of waiting until Apple updated the Macbook with better specs, I still went ahead and ordered the Apple Macbook from October 2016 with Touch Bar and I’m truly in love with it. It has its quirks, but one thing I wasn’t prepared for was all of the dongles I would need.
If you happen to have a new MacBook pro, but finding yourself having a bit of trouble figuring out what products to get for it, from cases, to even dongles, look no further than Moshi.
We cover a lot of portable batteries here, but it’s not often that we review one that is targeted at (and powerful enough to charge) laptops — the 12″ MacBook in particular — like the myCharge RazorPlatinum.
One of the things that I used do when packing to go overseas was to make sure that I had my collection of plug adapters and a bulky international power strip ready to go; these days I just make sure that I have the Oneadaptr Twist+ World Adapter DUO.
Today popular accessory and electronics designer Moshi brought their A-Game to Las Vegas as they announce three additions to their USB-C product line: the iLynx Type-C mini dock, Full-Featured USB-C Cable, and USB-C to DisplayPort Cable.
Henge Docks makes great accessories that let your Apple laptop double as a fantastic desktop. At CES they have announced both Vertical and Horizontal Docking Stations for MacBook Pro (2016) as well as their first Tethered Docking Station. All look great and, having used Henge Dock products before, I can guarantee the fit, finish and quality of each.
A personal favorite of mine, Elgato announced today their Thunderbolt 3 Dock, which has been a hit so far here at CES 2017. The Thunderbolt 3 Dock by Elgato looks to be one of the best ways, if not THE way you’ll want to connect and charge your MacBook Pro or Windows notebook with just a single cable.
A few months ago we reviewed the FINsix Dart Laptop charger, which is a slim laptop charger that not only makes your backpack that much lighter but leaves a smaller footprint that the typical brick that comes with most laptops. So it’s no surprise that the company has announced an update, which continues on the success of the original Dart.
Have an iPad Pro? If so, then you probably carry it with you almost all the time. But where do you stow its Pencil? And what do you do with the cable and charger? If you’ve been letting those things rattle around loose in your bag, then you’ll want to check out these beautiful and functional WaterField Atelier Leather Accessories.
Do you use your laptop as your main computer, hooked to a monitor and keyboard when you’re working at your desk? Then you probably know it doesn’t take much before the fan starts whirring and your laptop starts to get hot. If that’s your experience, then you’ll want to take a look at the new SVALT High-Performance Cooling Dock.
The MacBook is one of the most capable (and portable) laptops I’ve ever used, but getting acclimated to its single Type-C port has been an adjustment. Products like the Satechi Type-C Multiport Adapter are making the transition much easier.
The new MacBook comes with a 29W power cube that serves its purpose well enough, but there are no bells and whistles like, oh, say, an extra USB charging port or a way to wrap the long USB Type-C power cord neatly. With that in mind, the RAVPower 36W Dual Port Type-C/USB Wall Charger comes awfully close to perfect.
One thing that I’ve always wanted the ability to do is unlock my MacBook without having to type in my password numerous times. So I’ve been testing out the GateKeeper 2.0 security key the past few weeks and it has made a tedious task much easier.
The 29W power cube that comes with the Apple 12″ MacBook is small enough, but without the storage prongs that snap in and out of most of Apple’s laptop cubes, the 2-meter cable that comes with it has to be wrapped on its own. This seems like a weird oversight from a company that’s usually more elegant.
If you have a MacBook, then you’ve probably had at least one time (me – many times!) when you’ve wished you could charge your laptop while also attaching an accessory. Or maybe you’ve wished that you could plug a memory card into your laptop, but alas, there are no card readers. The MINIX USB Type-C Multiport Adapter can help!
So, you bought a new MacBook, and you’re freaking out a little bit because there isn’t a single USB port to be found. Not to worry, Choetech has you covered with their Aluminum 4 Port USB 3.0 toType-C Hub.
I finally broke down and bought a MacBook after months of hard-sell from Helena. Being able to carry a full Mac OS X computer that weighs so much less than my 13″ MacBook Pro has been liberating; figuring out how to charge my travel laptop and other devices at the same time has been a bit more of a challenge.
If you have a new MacBook, you’re probably still sorting out which gear will work with the USB Type-C port on your laptop. Ready and able to meet your backup needs is the LaCie Porsche Design USB-C Mobile Drive; available in 1TB, 2TB or 4TB, this beautiful USB 3.0 hard drive is a more than capable Time Machine backup drive.
