The LandingZone has announced what they call “the most powerful Apple MacBook docking station to-date.” It just might be. This new docking station offers an oh-so-awesome 16 different ports and can turn your MacBook Pro with Touch Bar into a powerful workstation. At $299 it is pricey, but the added functionality is unparalleled if you want an impressive desktop computer.
When Logitech set out to create a new keyboard, they took nothing for granted. They used premium materials, designed the keys for comfortable, quick typing, added a host of useful specialty keys and then went a bit further. In this case, “further” means a special input dial that, over time, will become increasingly useful.
When I travel for business I need a bag that can transport my suits and deliver them at my destination wrinkle-free. When, however, I an traveling for pleasure, I don’t need to think about taking suits. In such cases I need something that holds a ton and is easy to carry. That’s where the TIMBUK2 Wander Pack comes in.
One of the things I love about my new MacBook Pro is the fact that it uses a USB-C charging port. That means I can now charge my laptop on the go along with my iPhone and Table. The $129.99 myCharge AdventureUltra makes that possible, but it goes one step further by adding a built-in AC power port.
If you travel regularly to different countries, then you know that an assortment of power adapters for each country you’ll be visiting is a necessary investment. Here to make worldwide charging of your MacBook and phone (or tablet) more simple is the Innergie PowerJoy 30C USB-C Wall Charger.
I recently reviewed the AOC 2781PQ 27” Quad HD Ultra Slim Frameless IPS Monitor. It was ideal as I set up my new home office. (Read the review.) When AOC asked me to also review the AOC P2779VC 27″ Monitor with Wireless Charging I was thrilled. I now have an awesome dual-screen setup on my desk at home!
After using MacBooks for the better part of twelve years, when I finally received a standing desk, I knew for a fact I wanted a functional monitor that could stand as a larger display for my 2016 MacBook Pro. And I believe I’ve found just that in the Ben-Q Eye-Care Monitor (EW2770QZ). At 27 inches, the BenQ Eye Care Monitor…
Even if you’re not an Amazon Prime member, you don’t always have to wait around for Prime Day to find a great deal. One brand in particular that I really rave about to my followers on social media about is Aukey.
It’s a well-known fact that raising your laptop to a better viewing height and adding a keyboard will improve your posture and help your back and neck. What you use to raise your screen opens up a ton of possibilities. We’ve seen plenty of metal stands, but here’s something new and elegant — the Galen Leather Walnut Wood MacBook Stand.
When Apple joined the chorus of companies moving to USB-C, I knew I’d be needing new adapters and cables. I bought some of Apple’s when I got my new MacBook Pro, but they are priced ridiculously. Thankfully, Satechi is releasing a range of adapters and cables that are priced well; the Satechi Aluminum Type-C to HDMI Adapter is one example.
It seems as if USB-C is going to be the wave of the future, and with that being the case, a lot of traditional devices that came with USB 3.0 will be all but obsolete in the not-so-distant future. This includes the external hard drives that we use today.
I recently “renovated” my home office. It now has a new 13” MacBook Pro, an UPLIFT standing desk from HumanSolution, a big beautiful monitor from AOC and AudioEngine HD3 Bookshelf speakers. Key to this setup, however, is the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD with Cable. At $349.99 it is pricey, but it turns my laptop into an amazing desktop.
It’s not very often that I open a box and have to stop what I’m doing to inhale the fragrant smell of fine leather wafting as I unwrap the contents, but that’s exactly what happened when I recently opened a package from Galen Leather. What was inside the box? Beautiful cases for my iPhone, 12″ MacBook, and 13″ MacBook Pro.
If you have a 2016 MacBook Pro, you may want to consider picking up one of Belkin’s new Thunderbolt 3 Express Dock HD with Cable. The new Express Dock is fast. It is powerful. And, with just a single cable, it turns your MacBook into a desktop. At $349.99 it’s pricey, but it is a serious piece of hardware.
A couple of months ago I reviewed CharjenPro’s USB-C 5-in-1 hub for the MacBook Pro. It was an absolutely great accessory for the 2016 Macbook Pro that gives you a lot of the functionality that Apple stripped away when they went all USB-C for their latest Macbook.
Having Apple’s latest MacBook Pro is a gift and a curse. While I love the touch bar, enjoy the aesthetics, one thing I dread is the fact seems to be trying to force USB-C on us before it’s widely accepted everywhere. Not everyone has “USB-C everything”.
If you have a new 2016 MacBook Pro with (or without) Touch Bar and are looking for a protective case to protect that new investment of yours, look no further than Incase’s Dots MacBook Pro Hardshell Case.
I stopped using a desktop computer a few years ago and went all-in with laptops and tablets. Still, there are times when a large desktop with a plentiful screen is better suited to productivity. Thanks to my 2016 MacBook Pro and the AOC Q2781PQ 27″ Quad HD Ultra Slim Frameless IPS Monitor I have just that. I’m a happy geek.
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.
