We have decided to run through some of our favourite MacBook Air accessories to celebrate the launch of the new MacBook Air. As far as we are concerned, these products are ‘must-haves’ when it comes to protecting and improving the stylish image of your new MacBook Air – or even for your older MacBook Air.
Firstly we are going to look at the Power Support anti-glare screen protector:
Power Support make a wide range of protective products for almost all devices that are available at the moment, and have really revolutionised the world of screen protectors with high quality, long lasting protectors that even have some interesting unique features.
This screen protector is anti-glare, and uses clever design to absorb and diffuse light – meaning that you won’t be looking into glare when you are using your MacBook Air in sunlight or under a light. However, the image quality and brightness are not affected. This is available if you are looking for a MacBook Air 11 screen protector or a MacBook Air 13 screen protector, and is the perfect addition to your MacBook Air in order to keep your screen free from scratches, damage and unnecessary amounts of light reflection.
Secondly, we are going to look at the Aviiq Portable Laptop Stand:
The Aviiq Portable Quick Stand is brand new and the word about it is spreading faster and faster – it has a highly unique feature – it is the world’s thinnest laptop stand. Not only is it ridiculously thin, but it also looks incredibly stylish. However, just because it is thin and stylish – don’t think that it isn’t tough. It is made from unique HyLite material that won’t bend or get damaged, and it will easily support the weight of your laptop – even though it weighs just 5.5oz (0.16kg) and is less than a quarter of an inch thick when folded together, making transportation extremely easy as you can just pop it inside your bag or pocket.
The ergonomic design of the stand makes typing much more comfortable both on the wrists and on the eyes, as it adjusts your laptop to a better angle for vision, helping to prevent wrist and eye strain. As your laptop or MacBook is also lifted up off of the stand, it also improves ventilation and prevents your device from overheating. This really is the perfect laptop or MacBook stand.
The next thing to look at is the Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable:
This Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable name might not mean anything to you, but it really is one of the must-have MacBook accessories to have. Why is it? Because it is a MacBook to TV cable. This particular cable connects your video and audio from your MacBook Air straight to your HDTV. If you don’t have a HDTV, have a read of our MacBook to TV cable guide to see which cable(s) you need.
This cable allows you to show off all of your images, video footage, play games on your HDTV from your MacBook and all of the audio is also supported.
Next we come onto a MacBook bag, the STM Scout Shoulderbag:
The STM Scout Extra Small MacBook Air 11 bag is perfect for transporting your MacBook Air 11″. If you want a MacBook Air 13 bag, it is unfortunately unavailable in black at the moment, but we do have it in other colours and a whole range of other MacBook bags.
This bag keeps your MacBook Air separated from other items in your bag, keeping it fully protected from scratches and damages. There is also easily enough room for your charger, your phone, a tablet, documents, books, magazines and any other everyday essentials – without adding extreme bulk and remaining easy to carry at all times.
Finally, we need to look at a MacBook Air case. We are going to look at a very popular case of ours at the moment, the Gumdrop Surf Convertible:
This form-fitting case from Gumdrop has cut-outs for all of your ports and features, meaning that your MacBook Air can remain inside of its case at all times, even during use and charging. The stylish exterior is great on the eye and to the touch, and is only a couple of millimetres thick – meaning that weight and bulk are hardly contributed to, keeping your MacBook Air as slimline as it was designed to be.
