There are tons of accessories you can get for your MacBook, each with a unique purpose and certain aesthetic that appeals to different kinds of Mac users. So, what should you buy? Which one is right for you? To give you an an idea, here are five of the best MacBook accessories you can buy.
- MacBook covers
MacBooks are beautiful, expensive machines, and they deserve to be protected at all times.
There is a wide range of MacBook covers you can buy including leather sleeves, plastic snap-on cases and hard shell cases. They all have different prices and offer varying degrees of protection, so what you get simply depends on your budget and preference.
A plastic case is a good choice for the budget-conscious because it is usually very cheap. Keep in mind, though, that plastic cases only protect the outside surface of your MacBook from scratches. They won’t protect your MacBook from drop damage. If you want more protection, you can opt for a hardshell case, but be prepared to pay extra.
- Ninja Stealth Drive
BaseQi’s Ninja Stealth Drive aluminum microSD adapter is the perfect answer to your MacBook storage woes. It’s very simple to use—just insert any MicroSD card (except Lexar) into the Ninja Stealth Drive and you can instantly increase your MacBook’s storage space up to 256 GB.

Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t allow himself to be a victim, so you shouldn’t either. Get yourself a PrivyCam Webcam Privacy Protector. It takes only seconds to install over your MacBook’s webcam and is an easy, elegant, and affordable way to ensure your privacy. For a measly $6, you get peace of mind knowing that hackers won’t be able to access your webcam and snoop into what you are doing.
- Laptop stand
A laptop stand is an excellent way to avoid straining your back and neck muscles when your laptop is positioned or angled at lower than the ideal height. Get an adjustable laptop stand to avoid having to hunch over just to get a better view of your screen. A laptop with adjustable height allows a more customized - and ergonomic - position.
