Apple recently added two new products to its Mac lineup that turn your average desktop into a powerhouse for creativity. The Mac Studio and Apple Studio Display each come with their own impressive features that perfectly complement one another.
Mac Studio takes on the performance side of things with M1 Max and the new M1 Ultra while Studio Display boasts the visual aspects with an immersive 27-inch 5K Retina screen, Spatial Audio, an advanced camera, and more.
According to a press release from Apple, these “give users everything they need to build the studio of their dreams.” However, we beg to differ. Your new studio isn’t complete without a few Satechi products to further your setup dreams.
Read on to find out which Satechi accessories you need to complete your Studio Display + Mac Studio Setup.
First, you are going to need the Satechi Stand & Hub for Mac mini with SSD Enclosure to elevate and transform your Mac Studio to new heights (literally). Although this stand/hub was originally designed for the Mac mini, after extensive testing, we are happy to confirm that it is compatible with the new Mac Studio.
It will expand your workspace, providing you with a USB-C data port (up to 5 Gbps), three USB-A data ports (up to 5 Gbps), micro/SD card reader slots, and a 3.5mm headphone jack port. Plus, the internal SSD enclosure provides convenient access to all your USB peripherals.
Note: It does not include an SSD drive and the SSD enclosure only fits M.2 SATA SSD drives (does not work with NVMe).
If you want to streamline your workflow more, we suggest also adding the Satechi USB-C Clamp Hub for 24-inch iMac to your Studio Display. This hub features a USB-C data port, three USB-A 3.0 data ports, and micro/SD card readers. Of course, it also has our signature sleek aluminum design and modern aesthetic.
Installing the hub is simple and requires no extra tools. Just fasten it onto the bottom of your Studio Display with the adjustable knob, then plug it into one of the USB-C ports on the backside. Once installed, your most frequently used ports will be easily accessible while looking stylish.
Having a nice, sleek keyboard in your setup is a must. Typing feels more effortless than ever with our Aluminum Bluetooth Keyboard thanks to its enhanced scissor-switch keys and extended layout. The silver color will be the perfect addition to this top-of-the-line, modern setup.
- Designated keys to easily assign up to three Bluetooth devices
- Rechargeable USB-C Port
By now, you can probably tell that we are sticking to a silver aesthetic for this dreamy setup. The Satechi Silver M1 Wireless Mouse is the perfect sleek addition to your new creative studio. It features Bluetooth 4.0 connection, a rechargeable Type-C port, and our signature sleek look. Optical sensors allow for precise tracking and fast scrolling, so you will always be on your game.
Now for the finishing touch—the Satechi Dual-Sided Eco Leather Deskmate. It comes in three color variations: Blue & Green, Pink & Purple, and Yellow & Orange. For this particular setup, we are going with the Blue & Green option. Of course, if you aren’t a fan of color, you can opt for our Black Eco-Leather Deskmate.
This desk mat is made of quality Polyurethane (PU) leather making it smooth and satisfying to glide your mouse across. Its durable and water-resistant design makes cleaning up easy.
