    Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter. #1 reason I couldn't go with the new MacBook. I rely on a fast LAN connection for work, and for managing the server and other computers/network related functions. WiFi doesn't always cut it, though our new Unifi AP-AC APs help out a lot, it's still not quite gigabit WiFi.

    Other than that, just the charger and my bag.

    What brand did you use? have you found any issues related to HDMI output?

    I may be wrong, but it doesn't matter which brand you use. It isn't like speaker wire where quality of the wire is necessarily important. As the signal is digital, I don't think you need to spend any extra then £10/£20 for an adapter. Try and look for one by reputable companies such as Belkin etc.

    A great vinyl on the cover, and an sd card that's pretty much permanent thanks to a Nifty Mini Drive. DC5CC16E-D5B9-41B7-91AF-B83E40D318E6.JPG

    So far, an Acme Made sleeve and a no-name keyboard cover. When I remember to use it. I had a lemonade disaster with my MBP that the computer somehow survived and I'm trying to prevent that with this new machine.

    I use the Monoprice HDMI adapter. I have had some issues streaming Sports to my TV via HDMI because my MBA gets hot and then the stream starts getting choppy. That's not an adapter issue but a cooling issue.

    Great machine and my only computer... At office serves as deck-top replacement so I use Apple TBD, external HDDs, Time Capsule and Caldigit thunderbolt station. On the road, a Sena leather portfolio case, 4G modem when I need it. Rarely use Ethernet to USB or TB to video adaptors, but always have them with me.
