Highly-customizable mouse: SteelSeries Rival 300

Staff Favorite

Not exactly "space gray," but the gunmetal gray color of the SteelSeries Rival 300 will be a nice compliment to your iMac Pro. A wired mouse, the Rival 300 offers comfort, precision, and customization options to meet your needs. The Rival 300 features six programmable hardware buttons, which you can set up how you choose with SteelSeries' Engine software. You can also use this software to change the colors and pattern of the illumination featured on the mouse.

Backlit keyboard: Matias Wireless Aluminum Keyboard with Backlight

Much like Apple's own wireless keyboard that comes with the iMac Pro, Matias' product is a thin aluminum keyboard in a dark space gray, complete with a number pad. Matias says that the 1,600 mAh rechargeable battery inside the keyboard should last for around a year on a single charge. One of the key advantages of this keyboard over the Apple version, aside from being able to buy it separately, is the backlight. There's a dedicated button in the upper-right corner of the keyboard that lets you adjust the backlight brightness setting up or down.

The double-braided nylon offers some additional durability to the cable, especially if you use your Lightning cables frequently. The nylon also aids in preventing tangling.

Super fast external storage: G-Technology G-Drive 1TB

We thought that the G-Drive by G-Technology was one of the best USB-C hard drives for Mac, and it's a great option if you want some external storage to match your new iMac Pro, but also need something portable. In addition to portability, this drive is fast at 7200RPM, making it great for large files. Data transfer rates are also zippy, with a maximum rate of 136MB/s over a USB 3.1 connection.

The must-have items

Your iMac Pro is a powerhouse of a desktop. Whether you're using it for work or play, great accessories are going enhance your experience and let you get more done. However, there are a few items on this list that deserve extra credit for being so useful.

The SteelSeries Rival 300 is just a solid mouse, and for anyone who dislikes the Magic Mouse, you'll be hard pressed to find one as customizable, comfortable, and eye-catching as the SteelSeries Rival 300. It's a perfect companion to anyone trying to get a lot done.

I can't tell you how many times I have been frustrated by the poor-quality Lightning cables Apple provides with its products. Over time, they always seem to fray or stop working one way or another. Getting a durable cable like the Anker Powerline+ USB-to-Lightning cable is essential for any Apple user.

Lastly, as a writer myself, I can't stress enough how important a good keyboard is to anyone who finds themselves typing a lot of the day. A full-size QWERTY keyboard with a full numeric pad like the Matias Wireless Aluminum Keyboard with Backlight is going to make typing away on your iMac Pro as much easier and much more comfortable.
