It’s no surprise MacBook Pros are so popular. Their impeccable build quality mixed with Apple’s signature design has created what many would argue is the single greatest laptop brand money can buy. Sure, Apple’s OS is more intuitive, more robust and, in some cases, more straightforward than standard Windows models, but while Macs shine in the tech department, they tend to fall behind the competition when it comes to added features.

With only a handful of open ports and limited storage, MacBook Pros tend to lose a few points when it comes to bonus features. Fortunately, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite MacBook Pro accessories. From cases to camera covers, our selection covers everything you need to get the most out of your laptop.

1. USB C HDMI Adapter for MacBook Pro

MacBook Pros are awesome, but the amount of open ports they come with is less than stellar. This 5-in-1 USB-C adapter adds a handy 4K UHD HDMI port, two high-speed USB 3.0 Ports, a Memory card slot and a handy TF memory card slot. All you need to do is plug it into your Macbook and you’re able to take full advantage of extra ports. Best of all, it’s super compact and small enough to fit snugly in your pocket.

2. MOSISO MacBook Pro 13 inch Case

Protect your MacBook Pro with this Sturdy-yet-lightweight case. Designed to shield your Mac from the outside world, this everyday case features a smart heat dispersion system that not only helps keep your MacBook cool, it promotes better airflow. And if black isn’t your cup of tea, the MOSISO comes in 10 different color options.

3. Ultra-Thin Metal Magnet Web Camera Cover

Because you can never be too careful when it comes to privacy, this simple slide-on camera cover is designed to fit all MacBook pro models and comes with a simple swipe cover that you can use to cover (or uncover) your webcam at your own discretion. The ultra-thin design doesn’t interfere with your Mac’s aesthetics, and each set comes with a pack of three camera covers.

4. Apple Magic Mouse 2

A sleek laptop needs a sleek mouse, and there’s really no better fit for a MacBook than the Apple Magic Mouse. Available in silver or space gray, this wireless mouse is 100% rechargeable, so you don’t have to worry about dealing with buying new batteries, and its improved lightweight design makes scrolling and clicking a breeze. As an added bonus, the multi-touch surface makes it easier to both scroll and swipe with the single flick of your wrist.

5. Kuzy – MacBook Pro Keyboard Cover with Touch Bar

The MacBook’s keyboard may be one of the best-made keyboards on the market, but it’s notoriously hard to clean. If you’ve ever had to deal with those gunky spots and grimy corners, you know exactly what we’re talking about. This handy keyboard cover acts as a welcome mat for your fingers. It’s designed to perfectly cover your existing keyboard and includes precious cutouts that are designed to never interfere with your typing or clicking.

6. Folding Bluetooth Keyboard

And if you prefer to not use your keyboard altogether (or if your keyboard has one too many sticky keys), this folding wireless keyboard is a great choice. Featuring a smart ergonomic design, it’s made to help alleviate the strain from typing on your laptop all day. And because it’s able to fold up into itself, it’s a smart choice for typing on the go. The rechargeable battery and Bluetooth functionality are nice touches, as well. All you have to do is sync it to your MacBook and you’re good to go.

7. Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

Because the recent MacBook Pros don’t come with enough space to add an ethernet port (what’s up with that?), this officially licensed Apple product gives you an instant port. The simple plug-and-play design allows you to set up an ethernet port should you need it, and take it away when it’s no longer necessary. What’s more, there’s no need to download any extra software or wait for your MacBook to update to take advantage of this handy accessory.

8. iCozzier 13-13.3 Inch Handle Electronic Accessories Strap

This easy-to-carry MacBook case comes with multiple pockets so you can keep your Mac and your accessories nicely packed. The carrier’s fully fabric lining helps ensure your stuff stay tightly packed without fear of scuffs or scratches, and the water-repellent fabric helps provide year-round protection. If you’re constantly taking your MacBook on the go, this case is a smart choice.

9. XP-Pen Ultrathin Tablet Drawing

Ever wanted to draw on your Mac? Well, now you can—literally. This 6×4-inch drawing tablet connects to your MacBook Pro via USB and acts as a blank canvas for your designs. With an included P01 pen, you can draw on the tablet while you watch your movements mirrored on your screen. At roughly 2mm thin, it’s super portable and can fit easily in most bags and pockets.

10. MacBook Pro Charger

Whether you have little ones running around or pets with a certain proclivity to nibbling on wires, it never hurts to have a spare charger on hand. This MacBook Pro Charger works with A1398, A1425, A1502, A1435 and A1465 models and works just as great as the officially licensed one. It even comes with the same detachable plug.
