  • Iodyne Pro Data - This one is for video editors and those who need a lot of storage that's well-protected. The 12TB Pro Data from Iodyne is priced at $4,450 and goes up from there.
  • Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse - There are a lot of options for peripherals, but Apple's Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse are classics.
  • Nomad Stand One Max - For charging the ‌iPhone‌ and Apple Watch, Nomad's Stand One Max delivers quick charging speeds and aesthetics. It's not cheap at $180, though.

Quite the $$ collection. But an $85 headphone stand. Ok. Sure.

Just like so many accessories these days, nice but way too much compared to the price of the item they support.

Big fan of Logitech MX series. Wish Apple would make a mechanical keyboard / pro mouse, but these do the job alright.

I personally prefer the Magic Trackpad, and I think it's more comfy than any mouse. :cool:
