If you recently picked up a new Mac mini or MacBook Air, you're going to want the best Mac accessories to go with it. The right gear can totally transform the way you use your Mac. Whether it's a speedy portable drive, a beautiful 4K monitor, or some great headphones, this list has something that every Mac owner needs.

Our recommendations

These are the best Mac accessories to any Apple-made machine, whether you need great storage options, a more customized typing experience, or the massive power provided by an external GPU. But of all of these accessories, I'd recommend the Apple AirPods (opens in new tab) first. AirPods might be Apple's single best product in the last three years, they pair like magic and even sound pretty good, something you might not expect if you've ever used the wired EarPods.

With most Macs, including the entire MacBook lineup, moving to solid state storage in recent years, choosing additional internal storage for your Mac can be an expensive proposition. You can always expand your Mac's storage later with an external drive, and Samsung's T5 SSD (opens in new tab) is an excellent choice. It's compact enough to travel with you wherever you go, fast, and features USB-C for quick data transfers.
