The KGC laptop stand is made of premium quality aluminum alloy, and the top surface of the computer stand is designed by a silicone anti-skid pad and has a protective hook on each arm.

A slightly different take on a carry bag than the ones we’ve seen earlier in this list. The Matein travel backpack is the perfect accessory for the traveling MacBook user. Not only can it hold any size MacBook, but it has a wide variety of pouches, zips, and nooks for all your additional pieces of tech. Although it may not look it at a glance, this backpack has a few tricks up its sleeve.

First off is the hidden anti-theft pocket at the back – perfect for deterring any wannabe thieves. The next is it comes with built-in USB charging, which is always welcome in any situation. Not only this, but because it is made of durable, water-resistant polyester, the Matein back is also super comfortable and stylish.

The Lamicall MacBook stand is elegant as it is lightweight and foldable, ergonomic, and compatible with any MacBook from sizes 10 to 17 inches. Because of the dual hinges, it is also height adjustable, which is a godsend for those of us that aren’t that ‘average’ height that most products are tailored toward with little thought to others.
