For the retro Apple fan in your life, there’s the Think Different poster. This poster captures the old-style Apple of more whimsical days, back when everything wasn’t just Space Grey and maybe gold. You can also check out this cool sticker with the same rainbow Apple branding.

OWC USB-C Travel Dock

The MacBook Pro has gotten a lot of flack for only carrying USB-C ports. It’s especially gotten flack from photographers that relied on the old MacBook Pro’s SD card slot for importing photos. Restore the functionality of the MacBook Pro with this USB-C travel dock from long-time Apple accessory maker Other World Computing.

HyperDrive USB C Hub

This second MacBook Pro USB-C dock on our list works a little differently. It mounts to the side of the MacBook, plugging directly in to both USB-C ports on the left side of the machine.

One of the saddest parts of the new MacBook Pro’s many changes is the lack of a light-up Apple logo.
