Just this morning Apple refreshed its 12-inch MacBook with a faster processor and improved battery life. Whether you’re springing for the new models released today or going refurbished, you’ll likely need a few key accessories to round out your setup. While the MacBook has an attractive thin design, it comes at the cost of a single USB-C port. Additionally, it can be a tough sell as an everyday machine without some external input devices. Head below for a roundup of some of our favorite accessories for the 12-inch MacBook.

AnkerDirect via Amazon offers its new PowerHouse 400Wh Portable Clean DC/AC Power Inverter for $499.99. Applying coupon code ANKPower drops the final price to $399.99 shipped.

DJI has become synonymous with consumer and professional-grade drones as we’ve entered the fourth generation of its line of products. While we’re seeing deals on its entry-level Phantom 3 regularly, the high-end models reserved for filmmakers rarely drop in price. The consumer-focused drones are easy to fly but lack some advanced features desired by more advanced pilots.

Today, at the National Association of Broadcaster’s annual show in Las Vegas, DJI announced the Matrice 600. A top-of-the-line model that is loaded with features for filmmaking. With cutting-edge specs like a new video link system and camera-specific adaptation, this isn’t for your average weekend warrior.
