Best MacBook Air Bundle

2012 December 6

MacBook Air 13″

MacBook Air 11″

The MacBook Air from Apple has set the bar for laptops, netbooks, ultrabooks, etc.  It has a fully featured Intel processor and capable graphics card, but it utilizes a solid-state drive (SSD) instead of spinning hard disk.  The SSD is key to allowing the MacBook Air to be one of the thinnest and lightest laptops around.  The SSD has other benefits as well, allowing industry leading battery life and incredibly fast boot / load times.  If you don’t have one yet, get one!  (You’ll usually save some money at as well.)

Now you’ll want some accessories to compliment your amazing MacBook Air.

Keep that sucker protected.  Consider this slim, airport-security-friendly, neoprene sleeve that is just right for the MacBook Air.  Available in sizes  13″ Protection Sleeve or 11″ Protection Sleeve.

Read and write CDs and DVDs.  As you know, there is no disc drive built in the MacBook Air.  To watch the occasional DVD or burn a disc, you’ll need this Samsung Slim DVD+/-RW USB External Drive.  It plugs into your USB port and works right away.  No driver to install, and no external power cord — it draws power from the USB port!  Super convenient.

Get a lap desk.  You wanted to use that laptop on your lap, right?  I highly recommend a lap desk.  Preferably one with a wood top, such as the LapGear LapDesk Mahogany.  The wood looks great and holds up well over time.

A wireless mouse.  The trackpad is good enough to browse the web, but for doing real work you’ll want a real mouse.  You know, one with two buttons and a scroll wheel, such as the Microsoft ARC wireless mouse.  The great thing about the ARC is it actually folds in half, to almost half its size.  You might also consider a travel USB mouse with retractable USB cable.

What’s your favorite accessory for the MacBook Air?
