I Need to Buy Several Adapters
One reason I am using the new 2015 MacBook Retina is that I want a thin and light notebook that I can take on an upcoming vacation, to business trips and to the coffee shop.
After spending just a day using the notebook I already identified several adapters that I need to buy so that I can use the MacBook with my other devices. There are some options to workaround adapters like sending photos wirelessly from my camera to my iPhone to my Mac, but this is less than ideal.
Here are the MacBook adapters that I need to buy before my next trip.
USB C to USB - So I can connect my iPhone with a Lightning cable. Essential for charging iPhone and for using hotspot in crowded WiFi conditions.
SD Card Adapter - When I go on vacation or while working a press event I need a fast way to move photos to the MacBook from a camera, and a SD card adapter plugged into a USB C to USB adapter is the only solution.
I don't have any need to connect my MacBook to an external display under most situations, so I am not concerned about the display adapters. If I need another monitor I will turn to Duet Display to use my iPad as a monitor, but that too requires the USB C to USB adapter.
Monoprice offers a very interesting USB C Micro SD card reader, that would be a great option to avoid a dongle, but I've already invested in fast full size SD cards.
