    Hello, now I'm finally a MacBook owner too!

    I would like to buy, for my MacBook the following accessories (possibly from Amazon EU, any one, to receive just one shipping)

    1) The unmissable USB HUB, with passtrough and at least 2 (more are better) usb 3.0, hdmi and lan port
    2) A powerbank able to recharge one time my MacBook (doubling the battery life)
    3) A shoulder bag able to protect very well (I'm alway in hurry and heedless, if the MB take some little hits it has to be well protected) and carry the other 2 accessories, as well as a copybook and my phone charger


    Which ones should I get?
    thanks

    To answer #2) Anker PowerCore+ 20100 USB-C power bank is great! Two thumbs up.

    Responding to #3: I purchased the InCase "Classic" neoprene sleeve for my new MacBook; this will protect the computer in a number of situations, and allows me to put it into various bags that I already have. I also discovered that the rMB fits nicely (without sleeve) into the Waterfield Muzetto bag that I use with my iPad, which is handy.

    How long does it take to charge your MacBook?

    I just plugged it in and checked the System Information. It says it's pulling in 15W - that is about half of what it gets from the standard wall charger (29W). So 5-6 hours or so?

    I have a Moshi iGlaze case for mine. Doesn't spoil the aesthetics and gives great peace of mind about casual damage. Does not affect the cooling. More in this thread

    I have tried Minix, Anker and Hootoo hubs and had problems with all of them, so post back if you find a USB hub!

    I second this. Been using the Moshi Iglaze for many months now and it's an amazing, lightweight case!

    1) YES, CalDigit has one. http://www.caldigit.com/usb-3-1-usb-c-dock/
    2) Anker PowerCore+
    3) I always use my backpack to carry this little rMB. Did not find any need for an extra shoulder bag :) it's like nothing in my backpack.

    I recently bought a product called the Laptop Lift 90. I like it because it works as a riser but it also lets me stand up my MacBook Pro to save room on my desk when I'm not using it. Here is a pic from the site i got it from.
