For those who love their Macbook Airs, this unique Laptop Sleeve from Belkin is a great alternative to the usual notebook carriers. Aside from its reasonable price, this sleeve tops our list for this category because it complements the slimness and lightness of Macbook Air.
It comes with an optional strap that instantly converts the sleeve to a shoulder bag. Isn’t that very convenient especially when you’ve got tons of things to carry with your arms?
LaCie Thunderbolt Disk Drive
When it comes to storing huge amount of data, it’s pretty given that you’ll be needing an external hard drive for your back-ups. Aside from having your precious photos, music, videos and documents secured, freeing your hard drive a lot of space also equates to an improved performance of your Mac.
If you are a heavy user you know how important speed is when transferring or opening files. While most regular computers are into USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 or eSATA, your Mac is equipped with a Thunnderbolt port. LaCie’s Thunderbolt Drive might come a little to expensive for you, but with Apple pushing the Thunderbolt into the mainstream, you’ll be glad that you are already enjoying this revolutionary high-speed technology ahead of the rest.
This one is not only for Macbook Air owners because we know that there are those whose internal DVD drives are already getting cranky.
With all that cloud computing, why is the Superdrive still essential? Sad to say, at this day and age of cloud technology, there are still software that use installation disks. A DVD writer also comes in handy for burning videos or whatever data you need to share or save.
Apple Thunderbolt Display
For the love of bigger workspace, Apple Thunderbolt monitor offers 27″ high resolution (2560 x 1440 pixel) goodness. Just plug it to your Mac’s Thunderbolt port and you’re good to go.
