Henge Docks Announces New Docks for the MacBook Pro 2016

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.


Elgato Introduces Thunderbolt 3 Dock with Dual 4K Display Support

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.


Get Yourself a More Portable USB-C Laptop Charger from FINsix

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.



SVALT High-Performance Cooling Dock: Prevent Workstation Meltdowns

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.




Protect Your Laptop’s Privacy with GateKeeper

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.


Innergie PowerGear USB-C 45W Laptop Adapter Review

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.


MINIX USB Type-C Multiport Adapter with VGA Output: Just What I Needed!

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!




LaCie Porsche Design USB-C Mobile Drive: Ready for Your MacBook

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.


Kanex MultiSync Mac Keyboard Is a Multi-tasking Maven

In a span of just minutes, I may find myself switching from a task on my iPhone 6S to a different task on my iPad Pro, to a third task on my MacBook Pro, and then back again. The Kanex MultiSync Mac Keyboard was designed for people like me and, I suspect, like you.



Check out Caseable: Handcrafted Custom Accessories for Your Favorite Devices

In a sea of mass-produced cases for electronic devices, caseable is one company that is creating custom accessories for devices that not only use your photographs to personalize them, they are doing so right here in the US (in Berlin for their European customers), and they’re making these items– to the greatest extent possible — from recycled materials.


Adorn Your 13″ MacBook Pro retina with a Wooden Toast Skin

What’s better than wrapping your laptop in a beautiful wood cover — front, back, and sides? Not much, I tell you. But Toast managed to top all of that goodness by sending me one of their Real Wood MacBook Covers with Gear Diary’s logo emblazoned on the front. The result is absolutely gorgeous!


Get More out of Your Laptop Charger with the Zolt Charger Plus

Apple’s MacBook MagSafe Charger is big, clunky, and gets in the way. From the large white cube, down to the all-white cable being just an eyesore from across the room, I wanted a bit more, so when Zolt sent me over their Zolt Laptop Charger Plus, I knew I’d never use the charger that came with my MacBook Air again.


LaCie’s Rugged Mini Is Everything You’d Want in A Portable Hard Drive

I’ve had the pleasure of being able to review LaCie’s 4TB Rugged Mini, and I love it! A Portable external hard drive, the Rugged Mini is everything you saw from the original (and larger) LaCie Rugged Raid, but in a smaller design that maximizes its portability, all while giving you a nice flashy orange bumper that protects the device from being…
