Which accessories should I buy for my MacBook Pro?

The answer entirely depends on what you're looking to gain out of your MacBook Pro! If you want to use other devices hooked up to your laptop, then a dock with extra ports that are compatible with said devices is a fantastic investment. 

You should also consider your posture when choosing the best MacBook Pro accessories, especially if you have a home office. An adjustable laptop stand means you are less likely to strain your eyes and neck while keeping a straighter posture as you work, and investing in a high-end keyboard and mouse setup can also ease wrist strain if typing for long periods of time. 

It might also be worth investing in one of the best monitors for MacBook Pro if you rely on a second screen set-up for spreadsheets and email management, or maybe even an extra monitor for photo editing if you're a photographer-slash-content creator.

Are there any accessories that will damage my MacBook?

This is a tricky question. Typically, there aren't many accessories out there that will cause significant harm to your device, but some will more than likely suffer from compatibility issues if they aren't Apple-approved/certified or have been cheaply manufactured. 

It's always best to research a product before purchase to determine if it's A) compatible with your MacBook, and B) a recommended or approved product from Apple that's safe to use. This can be discovered by reading customer reviews on retail sites such as Amazon, and checking the product description for any mention of device incompatibility. 

All products listed in this buying guide are ones we would purchase ourselves and can confidently vouch for as being safe to use with your MacBook. Disclaimer: we cannot, however, be held responsible or accountable for any potential product faults and these should be dealt with by contacting whichever brand or retailer you purchase with.
