Office Tech Essentials

Whether you're continuing to work from home or making the big return to the office, we have compiled a list of all the tech essentials you need to make working life easier. What's more, you can find all of these items here at Megamac!

Featured below you'll find the best monitor stands, docking stations, charging devices, AirPod tips, Bluetooth keyboards and mousepads that we offer. 

 1. Monitor Stands

A monitor stand is the office accessory that everyone needs. A stand will raise your monitor for maximum comfort, reducing eye and neck strain. It promotes good posture, ensuring working at your computer is easier.

Here at Megamac we recommend the Satechi Aluminium Monitor Stand.

This item will not only provide comfort, but it will simplify and organise your desk while maintaining a clean, functional style. Designed to match all iMacs and MacBooks, its metallic finish stylishly complements Apple computers and products. 

2. Docking Stations

A docking station is the ultimate gadget for those choosing to work in-between home and the office.

Docking stations can increase productivity in your office by facilitating the connection of multiple peripherals, data syncing, screen mirroring and even charging with power delivery. Having a docking station will cut down on the number of cables needed, allowing for a cleaner desk.


The particular docking station you should purchase depends on the type of Mac you own, as well as the functions you require. Given this, do ensure to check compatibility when choosing a model. We recommend the OWC Thunderbolt 4 Hub Docking Station.

The OWC Thunderbolt Hub lets you consolidate and simplify the connectivity between all your devices with all the Thunderbolt ports you’ve always wanted. The OWC Thunderbolt Hub’s four Thunderbolt (USB-C) ports and one USB port massively expand your connection possibilities. Now you can do more work effortlessly on your Apple M1 Mac, any Apple ‘Intel’ Mac with Thunderbolt 3, or any Thunderbolt 4 PC.

3. Charging Devices

Charging your devices has never been more organised and convenient!

With faster-charging technology and intelligent safety features, this sleek, modern charging pad quickly and simultaneously charges a Qi-enabled smartphone, Apple Watch, and AirPods Pro.

Using the wireless charging pad in your office will provide you with a more organised workspace while allowing you to keep those essential devices powered up for whenever you need them. 

4. AirPod Foam Tips

Whether you use AirPods on your commute, for video conferencing or during your time off, foam tips really enhance your listening experience.

We recommend the Comply 2.0 Foam Tips. Comply Foam Tips allow you to focus on your audio by cancelling external noise, ensuring no more distractions during those Zoom meetings!

Enjoy all day comfort as the body heat activated memory foam creates an ultra-soft and comfortable audio experience.

Whether you're running, working out or commuting, the product's secure fit ensures that you never need to worry about your earphones falling out again. 

5. Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard

Wireless keyboards are a great addition to any office, as less wires are great for those trying to declutter and create a more organised space.

We recommend the Satechi Aluminium Bluetooth Wireless Keyboard. Featuring enhanced scissor switch keys and an extended keyboard layout, the Satechi keyboard is the perfect solution for your Mac setup. Designed for Macs, the keyboard includes intuitive MacOS function hot keys for convenience at your fingertips.

Customisation for MacOS allows you to pause/play content, switch applications, adjust brightness, and do even more, all with a press of a button. You can also use the keyboard's designated keys to easily pair with three Bluetooth devices.

A built-in rechargeable USB-C port allows for a long-lasting battery life of up to 80 hours between charges. Say goodbye to disposable batteries! 

6. Memory Upgrades

A faster computer system means an easier and more efficient work day. If your system is running slowly, adding further RAM should help. 
Your computer's system memory is made up of physical memory, called Random Access Memory (RAM). Generally the more RAM your system has, the faster your programs will run.
We stock a wide range of RAM upgrade kits to suit various Mac models. Do ensure to check compatibility with your Mac though if you think you're interested in purchasing one.

One of our most popular RAM kits is the 64GB OWC Matched Memory Upgrade Kit.

7. Mouse Pads

Some may question how necessary mousepads are, but there are a few reasons why a mousepad is a great addition to your office.

First, moving your mouse around a lot each day is eventually going to scratch or wear down the desk. This is even more likely on cheaper desk materials. Second, adding a mousepad to your office is great for your wrists! Do you find that your hand is stiff after a full day of using your mouse? This could be due to your wrist being at an awkward angle, and resting against a hard desk. 

We recommend the Nomad Horween Leather Mousepad.
This mousepad is made from stylish, minimally treated, vegetable-tanned leather from one of America's oldest tanneries. This simple and elegant mousepad pairs as the perfect travel companion for your MacBook. It's precisely sized to pair perfectly with 16-inch and 13-inch MacBooks. Two colours are available; signature Rustic Brown or Black Horween Leather.
